    The louvers on the rear bumper are sick.

    Actually, I'd rather have a 993 Turbo or Turbo S, but I'm silly like that

    Personally, I think the 993 was the last "˜true' 911. Ever since the 996, there's something missing from the 911.

    And there is nothing wrong with silly! [​IMG]

    A friend has a 97' 993 turbo, the last of the water cooled Porsche turbos. Just an aesthically pleasing and incredible car.

    I knew it was one or the other, so I guess it was air cooled?

    I love the 993 Turbo's, but the new GT2 is more of keep you on your toes type of car. Whereas the 993's were AWD, these are pumping out 530 horses to the rear wheels. If they're anything like the last, they should be somewhat scary to take close to the limit.

    Does it look any different from the last? Looks to me like the GT2 from every other year I can remember.

    Different headlights... that's the major styling difference. They went back to round for the 997.

    It's based on the 997 body type, which is different than previous GT2s. Of course, the engine is very different, especially with the really cool variable vane geometry.

    +1. I'll take a '97 Turbo anytime. In fact, I'll probably buy one in a couple of years, for old time's sake. To think about it, 97 was a pretty good year for sports car in this country: M3, 3000GT VR4, 300ZX Twin Turbo, Supra, NSX, etc.,.

    Different headlights... that's the major styling difference. They went back to round for the 997.

    Also they tightened the rear of the greenhouse, as well as generally squaring off the front end at the front bumper and at the front haunches that leads to the headlights. It's much more referential to the original 911s, and I personally think it's the best 911 design in years. They'd gotten a bit to soft in the edges in recent years. I also would take the GT3 over any other 911.
