    Turbo evolution comp

    Found this, FYI (sorry if old). Low res, but still informative.

    Re: Turbo evolution comp

    Nice

    Re: Turbo evolution comp

    They all look the same to me.

    Re: Turbo evolution comp

    imo all look great except 996.

    Re: Turbo evolution comp

    I made this animated GIF a while ago

    Re: Turbo evolution comp

    Hi,

    i am with Turbo4ever here. All look fantastic except the 996. I was really surprised the 996 headlight shape was ever given the approval for production.

    Overall a timeless design, of which porsche must be congratulated !.

    Re: Turbo evolution comp

    And in hi-res...?

    Re: Turbo evolution comp

    Guys, help me out:
    I don't love the headlamp style of the 996 tt too much, but for the rest... I LOVE that car man! Am I the only one who likes the 996 tt so much? (BTW, got to add that when I first grew interest in porsche, by playinf need for speed porsche unleashed, the 99tt was the ultimate 911).
    Am I the only one? Whenever I see a 996 turbo, my heart skips a beat or two... the car is just sex on wheels, or not? ;-)

    Re: Turbo evolution comp

    what doesn't come thru all that accurately with these pics is how physically bigger the cars have gotten.

    It was my screen saver back in 2004.

    (w/o the 997, of course)

    Thanks for the hi-res pics Joost!

    As far as relative size here's a good place to start.

    What kills me is how the _view_ out the windshield has changed. Used to be FANTASTIC! Now, it's like looking out a slot. Check out size of windshield, dash line, slope of trunk and the closeness of the driver's eyes to it all.

    It's a damn shame that panoramic-view cruising is gone. Yeah, safety is better as a tradeoff BUT was that phenomenal view impossible w/o safety?

    Yes, I made it back in the spring of 2006 or so when they first released the 997TT website. I'm sure that others have copied mine but that's okay, I think mine is probably one of the better ones out there.

    Re: Turbo evolution comp

    MMD, do you have that picture high res? I love pictures in which classic 911's are side by side the modern ones.

    Agreed, I'd like a copy too!

    Re: Turbo evolution comp

    Hi MMD,

    what a great picture of old and new together. After my TT delivery my next purchase will be a classic 911 for sure.

    Any chance of a high res picture too.

    Rgds.

    Here ya go. From the book _Porsche 911 Enduring Values_ (p 96-97)


    Check book out at Amazon.com (I can't get link to work)

    Would be _great_ to acquire an original 911. My fear is I'd (we'd?) eventually put it in a ditch trying to get the most out of it by comparing it, probably subconsciously, to current TT car.

    Re: Turbo evolution comp

    Enjoy this one too!!
