Looks good. Seems a bit larger, especially in certain areas like the rear quarter panel. It certainly brings attention to the larger rear wheels.

It's a good looking car, but Porsche pricing has gone through the roof lately and for no good reason.

I mean, heck - a nicely equipped 991 Turbo S Cab is MORE MONEY than a brand new Ferrari Portifino and only about $20K less than the new Ferrari 488 GTB! The GT2RS is the same price as the Ferrari 812 SuperFast and $100,000 more than a Lambo Hurican. These prices just seem obscene to me. For crying out loud, a Boxster costs more than the M4 these days if nicely equipped. I just don't get it.

Porsche is definitely losing the appeal of what it once was. I will take my 85 911 over this car any day of the week.

I hear that. The further away modern cars go beyond performance that can actually be exercised on public roads, the more sense it makes to me to go with older examples that can actually be stretched out and enjoyed. I'm not talking 'driving slow car fast is more fun...' either; more like 'fast enough car is enough'.

I usually try to withhold my opinions until seeing cars in the flesh. But this redesign, along with the over-evolution of the model, really bothers me. Sadly, the 911 can no longer return, in character, to the car it once was. RIP.

I think I'll hold onto my 991.1 for a while.

Until you get used to said HP then you want more. At least I do. So just start with a lot right off the bat.

I agree with this. Front grille looks terrible...I'd still own one in a heartbeat.

What's with the gap at the top of the front grille? Is that for air or just more poor design?

I like the central exhaust. Much more than the stupid quad pipe setup at the corners. Six cylinders should never have four tips. It was dumb on my M Coupe, it's dumb on 911's.

The GT cars with true center exhaust looks good. The Golf-like exhaust looks awful. It makes the rear look less wide compared to the quad setup.

It IS wide and comically larger than it used to be. Sometimes the truth hurts. I respect the water cooled 911's, but would only put my money on an air cooled one.

Looks awful, like they changed things just for the sake of changing things. The squared off look of the front bumper/grilles is terrible, similar to the awful bumper on the 718 Boxster/Cayman, and the rear just looks fat and bulbous.
