2010 Porsche 997 GT3 RS

PostPosted: Sun Aug 21, 2011 3:07 pm    Post subject: Reply with quote

...Pretty car, but as has been mentioned many times before, gone for ever
is the small, squat, nimble and slightly menancing stance of the 993/996/
997 Porsches.
This ''new'' model is so very much wider and longer, with a large chunk of
the extra length in there for rear passengers...rear passengers !...what is
that all about ?.
Pure GT car...no longer a sports car, who knows what that will mean for the
GT cars to follow...
nooo

1996 Porsche 993 Turbo

PostPosted: Tue Aug 23, 2011 4:16 pm    Post subject: Reply with quote

Front end = looks Panamera

Rear end = looks wider 997

That aside, I like it and it's growing on me by the day, looking forward to seeing one in the flesh and and even sitting in/driving one.

Need to find out when they're coming to Japan....for sure they'll snap them up here.

It looks amazing, only if I had that much spare cash!!
If I was to criticize it I would say front small light somehow don't look rite given the air vents, perhaps if they ended aligned, but still, great car. Smile

Thanks Doc, these shots do the car justice! The more I see, the more I'm convinced it's a beauty. Should be a quite a looker in the metal Cool

Butt end looks like it's been lifted from frikkin Chrysler Crossfire.....
Interior is pure part bin Panamera!

And the Badges on the Butt end - O.M.F.G....... Yuk Yuk Yuk Yuk

Yes I cannot afford one
Yes I could support a loan to finance one
964 - 993 then GT3/RS for this little black duck.........

Apologies for those I may have offended........

It started on Saturday with some GTS window shopping, then yesterday I regressed even further, my faith in water cooling and residuals shaken by the the new breed, I spent some time perusing 993 Turbos.

At least they look like a 911.

+1.

I almost want to set up an online poll to see just how many people out there would like air cooling and smaller dimensions back - and sharing the feedback with Porsche.

Just wondering whether the convertable will have a folding hard top or will it still be canvas, anyone know?

Seems to be popular with german cars now, and the extra length might accomodate this.

You have offended no one. This is a forum/thread where free speech and opinions are valued on such an important matter.

btw ...I shared some pics of the 991 with people I was with on Sunday and only one out of four though it looked better than the 997. I keep telling myself not to worry as it will look great in real life but I am increasingly worried about the 911 concept under VAG.

I'd much rather it was a great success for the good of the marque/911 However, if i was sitting(which I am) with a good/clean 996/997 GT2/GT3(esp that 997 4.0 RS), I'd be feeling rather positive right now, as I believe that the 991 is aiming for a whole new customer base while the "old/previous" 911 customer base will start to seek out good 996/997 GT's and RS's and pay good money to own the last of the true/pure(non VAG) Porsche 911's. bye

I think the fact that they've had to add front park assist has got to tell us something!
