    Re: 997TT First Impression

    Re: 997TT First Impression

    take it in black and you won't notice the foggy lights

    Re: 997TT First Impression

    Great pics, thanks.

    Re: 997TT First Impression

    I really want to love the way this car looks but through numerous spy shots/official shots/car show shots, and in all sorts of colors... I just don't find it appealing. The 993 TT was the pinnacle of Turbo looks. It seems we're on a downward slope.

    The lack of PDK (hopefully less than 2 years away) and the fact that the manual will be a slower car than many other manufacurer's offerings, I think I may be sitting this one out.

    Re: 997TT First Impression

    I am sorry it does not look attractive in the front or the back!

    How could Porsche do this? Who exactly was in charge of its new looks, a fisherman? How could the Porsche Board of Directors say yes to such a 997 Sea Monster!

    Im sure the mechanical parts and dynamics are stellar, but they should include a free car cover or a trawler net with every 997TT.

    Body Kit companies will sell lots of plastic surgery kits to correct the factory visual damage.

    It's a whole bunch of different design statements flying in formation with each other.

    Re: 997TT First Impression

    Now that you mention it . I think it resembles a cat fish

    Dont photoshop any whiskers on it! The wheels actually look like something on a bass lure.

    Re: 997TT First Impression

    It would be great to have her mounted, right in my parking garage

    About those front signal lights

    they look like they are delicate and exposed - wonder how much it'll cost to fix when grandma backs into one and demolishes it

    I totaly agree.

    Re: 997TT First Impression

    LOL, maybe is we are lucky the turbo S will not have those fog lights..... no chance (maybe). seems like the trend of some high end performace cars have no fog lights. Enzo,CGT,M5 etc. I Like the look better

    Re: 997TT First Impression

    I'm starting to like it a lot, especially in polar.

    Re: 997TT First Impression

    what a sweet ride

    Re: 997TT First Impression

    The GT3 is so much better looking. The turbo is just plain. I'm really amazed that Porsche missed the mark by such a wide margin.

    Re: 997TT First Impression

    I think it looks incredibly good. The one thing I do miss is the whale tail. I know this wing looks to be bigger than the 996 TT, but the 993 whale tail was the best, IMHO. Why don't they use it or have it as a factory option?? Thanks for the pics. It's just stunning!

    Re: 997TT First Impression

    any more pictures ??

    Re: 997TT First Impression

    thx for the link, Ron!

    As many others, i prefer the look of the gt3 or of the 996 tt for exemple.What is funny is that i really prefer the"stock" 997 to te 996. Need to see it for real to be sure.

    LOL...At 1st I thought it looked like a "Hammerhead Shark"
    But if you look at the whole front end along with the headlights it does look like a "Catfish!!!"

    Now to figure out what that butt ugly rear end looks like?

    Re: 997TT First Impression

    The bulging foglights are Pontiac-esque IMO.

    Re: 997TT First Impression

    Hmmm. Just imagine this car is in front of you at the light and you are sitting behind this beauty helplessly in your boring car staring at the rear of this beauty. There are thousand things going through your mind including I bet this car can blow my socks off or Gee I wish I was driving this car and then reality sinks in and you wake up and see yourself in your boring car again.Give me a break man.You havent even seen this car.

    Or maybe we just seat there thinking gee the monster is fast but sure its ugly, Performance is not the only thing that matters to many people and Im sure anyone with a 987 or 997 does not think they own boring cars...

    Re: 997TT First Impression

    i'll take a gt3 everytime....

    Re: 997TT First Impression

    Funniest thing is, I am having thoughts about the looks of both the GT3 and the turbo... they both look "overdesigned" : Too many vents and slats and lines that make the car look very busy. I really love the new headlights, and I love the stock 997, but I still love the 996 tt and the 996 GT3 RS the most...

    Re: 997TT First Impression

    it's hideous. but the TT tip is so fast, i'll put a bag over its head

    I agree - 996GT3 with 997 headlights is pretty close to perfect for a car like this...

    Re: 997TT First Impression

    It really doesn't look very attractive to me either, but I'd take one in a second and I think there are cars more deserving of the term 'hideous' or 'butt ugly.'
