    Re: 991 spyshots thread (continued) (for UNRELEASED models only) Thread Closed

    One more thing about Porsche and lights and facelifts:

    all the facelifted models seem to get a 'kink' I either front lights (987.2,Panamera fl and form spy pictures Cayenne fl also..) or rear lights (997.2) which is a) ugly and b) as if it was made deliberately to stop people from retrofitting new lights to  pre-fl cars

    Im not sure the kink would look good on a 991

    It's not about looking better or not, it's just that you have an "old" model after the facelift.

    I can't think of a Porsche model that hasn't been improved visually by the facelift. Besides some technical/ power improvements. 

    Others brands don't improve as much at facelift time and some don't change anything during the life of a model.

    The most improved facelifted model so far has been the 997.2: DFI, +30 HP, PDK, LSD, improved PASM, bluetooth, brake assist and prefill, LEDs, new PCM and center console, ventilated seats, adaptive headlights and others.

    I certainly agree, but let's be honest. It has been that way for a long time and not just with Porsche. 

    You know that when you buy a 911 or any other Porsche that has been in its lifecycle for about 3-4 years, you're gonna see a facelifted version very soon. Where do you draw the limit if you are a manufacturer...? Smiley

    Keen on a base NA flat 6, go pre-facelift now. Probably true for S as well ...

    from another forum..

    "just wanted to inform you that "rumor mill around Stuttgart" has it that AP will be disbandend from his functions as head of the GT cars at Porsche"

    Sure is fault of the bad thing happened with the GT3 engines,also if i think is not directly involved...but is the head..so.

    a pity if true ,becouse is really a kindly man..

    The end of AP might be true. The GT3 fiasco is a huge blow for Porsche engineering and the buck had to stop at AP.

    If so, no one is irreplaceable.

    If I remember correctly, Goodwood festival of speed tweeted that the GT3RS will be unveiled at the event. So that's at the end of this month. Hopefully it is true!

    Been invited by Porsche to Goodwood but no mention of the 3RS in the letter  Smiley

    Not a free invite I guess Smiley

    There is always some truth in rumors and I know that AP was under a lot of pressure lately (not that it was really his fault) but we should be careful with such rumors.

    Yes,for sure we must be careful,and i think we was...

    also all hopes that AP will remain at his place,and this tells much on what we think of him!

    Hi All,

    Is there any word on the release of the 2015 Cayenne?   It looks as though 2014 Cayenne allocation is going through August here in the USA, while June is the las month for 2014 for the rest of the product line.

    There is the usual camouflaged pics floating around if you Google it.  I was simply wanting to know if anyone had anything more substaintial.

    Thank you,

    Nick

    I kinda find myself opening this thread time and time again, coz I thought it was all about 991 spyshots and related news and such. But lately it's more like general talk about some Porsche managers and Cayennes...?

    yes
