    Hi-Rez Aerokit pix





    Re: Hi-Rez Aerokit pix

    MMmmmmmm not sure about that....

    I think I like the rear spoiler, similar to the orginal GT3 spoiler but not as good...

    The font bumper however looks a bit "The Fast and the Furious" for my liking... Trying to hard to be sporty

    Re: Hi-Rez Aerokit pix

    Let me get used to it, and in the end I will love it
    Thanks a lot for the pics "dude"!

    Exaaaactly!

    Re: Hi-Rez Aerokit pix

    Will 997 GT3 look exactly like this? I certainly hope not. I know Porsche can do better design.

    Re: Hi-Rez Aerokit pix

    i really like the front.. its amazing

    People are using the "fast and furious" term to much. Do you have nothing else to compare a cars aesthetic look too?

    Can someone photoshop that wing out??

    Are you comparing a Porsche to a derogatory, stereotypical term used against Asian Imports.

    Not to mention racist.

    I like the front bumper...

    Nope.

    I'm comparing it to unappealingly modified Asian imports with outsized and garishly fashioned aerodynamic decorations.

    I drive a Lexus GX470 (Asian import) most of the time. And, I like IT.

    Hold on now. Since when do Latinos eat rice as a staple? ... Sorry, your quick perjoration got the better of me there.

    Besides, Tropher V was complaining about the over-use of Fast & Furious as a description of vehicular appearance. I sarcastically offered an "improved" alternative.

    If anyone was offended, I humbly appologize.

    Re: Hi-Rez Aerokit pix

    I like it aswell, one question though, is it possible to replace the wing with the 996 GT3 RS carbon wing? I think that one looks a lot nicer.

    Re: Hi-Rez Aerokit pix

    We sure have some polically correct sissy men here. Better watch what we say...

    it should look exactly like this except with different rims and much lower.

    Re: Hi-Rez Aerokit pix

    i gotta join the minority and vote

    Re: Hi-Rez Aerokit pix

    at least i seems they got rid of that idiotic smile, at least i part. I agree it's not very subtle though. Guess I'll have to see it life and there is a good chance that i like it more than the stock version. I still think the headlamps are too big, but the bigger bumper reduces their visual impact.

    Re: Hi-Rez Aerokit pix

    ...and to add to my remark, do I see a body coloured (or at least darker) ring around the headlamps?? maybe 'they' DO read our forum..

    Yes, the front is very nice but the rear wing...reminds me too much of the first GT3 generation and I hated that round shaped rear wing. Maybe the front spoiler will be available without the rear wing? Would be great.
    I heard that the GT3 gets a similar package, I just don't know what the word "similar" means. A shorter version of the GT3 RS wing would be just right for the GT3, maybe...

    Re: Hi-Rez Aerokit pix

    I think that the package is good, even the rear spoiler In fact it's more than I expected

    Re: Hi-Rez Aerokit pix

    And as well the car is equiped with the Sports Exhaust (note the tips)

    Re: Hi-Rez Aerokit pix

    I just think it looks as though they have tried too hard to get that agressive sporting look and not paid enough attention to how the design flows with the rest of the car.

    It also looks pretty cheap IMO

    Re: Hi-Rez Aerokit pix

    I'm not calling anyone racist here, sorry, its just that I've been on many auto forums (especially BMW) where the term "rice" is used as a racial slur.

    Again I apologize for projecting this issue on this cordial forum.

    Re: Hi-Rez Aerokit pix

    Well, it's tipical from Porsche to have these kind of aero kits available to satisfy every client tastes, and as always the final result is a desaster.
    Chromed or painted wheels, yellow or red sealt belts, and many other interior pimp goodies are available to satisfy everyones taste. Class goes down toillet and money rules.

    Re: Hi-Rez Aerokit pix

    Thanks for the photos. I respect the fact that many people here will like them but they're just not my style! I like the subtle elegance and beauty of the 997S.

    Re: Hi-Rez Aerokit pix

    thanks for posting ron!!

    but i can't believe how ugly this aerokit is. what's going on at porsche? where's the pureness?

    Re: Hi-Rez Aerokit pix

    ... sorry... but I don't like it!

    Maybe I need to see it in reality!

    Re: Hi-Rez Aerokit pix

    Can you say Techart! The P one is scary looking!

    Re: Hi-Rez Aerokit pix

    It is said that one of the most critical aspects of "good art", be it a painting, or interior design, or automotive styling, or what-have-you, is knowing when to put down the pencil or the brush or the mouse, and stop. The aero kit is obviously intended for function as well as form, but I think it enhances function at the expense of form. I wont be retro-ing anything like that to my 997S, I don't see the aero kit as an aesthetic improvement.
