    here's some:

    Notice bigger mirrors. Grill is different.

    Maaaaaaybe headlights are smaller?

    Re: 997 Restyling

    rear view of facelift (or rearlift):

    Re: 997 Restyling

    Wow not bad. What is that bump over the rear light in the back? Is that a backup camera?

    Now that would be a very smart move, it would give much better look to the 997 front. Rear lights also seem freshier. I think the 2007 997 will look sharper and more agressive than present model, althought the present model is already a great looking car.

    I agree the current 997 looks great and the refresh doesn't appear to take away from that.

    MY07 997 looks exactly like the MY06. Facelift is a little ways off before seeing it on a dealer's lot.

    Re: 997 Restyling

    Facelift would be MY 08 and MAY be an early release spring/summer of 07.

    Re: 997 Restyling

    Thanks MMD, great pics!

    the new design kind of resembles the 996 rear trunk...if you see closely it includes a small braking in the middle of the rear trunk something that existed in the 996..

    Re: 997 Restyling

    what's interesting is the line of something (circled) which connects to two brake lights.

    The third brake light is in the same place (under a louver/slat)

    That nub above it all is an unknown; maybe a spray cleaning nozzle for back window on cab?

    Antenna/"wiper"at lower right is probably to communicate between mules. (?)

    Maybe that "nub" is an elusive satellite radio antenna!

    Re: 997 Restyling

    I think the restyling will be awesome!! Don't you think so?...

    Re: 997 Restyling

    I dunno, the rear looks abit stubby for my liking.

    I think the rear view flows better in curves and proportion than the current 997.

    Re: 997 Restyling

    i see the new rear light styling on recent cars these days, with the sawed off edges...but i like it though

    Re: 997 Restyling

    hah, nice photoshop, i like how you used one of first real pictures ive seen the 997 in back in the day. I like ur idea of the LEDs as well.. it will look alot like those from the CGT! which is beautiful
