I think it looks quite good, the rear lights are fine and I think the rims are nice.

Meh, just another Porsche, unfortunatly, fat ass, the rear lights don't suit it at all and the double xenons in the front ones look ridiculous. Were bi-xenons too expensive for Porsche??

993 you are missed.

You obviously haven't seen any of the whale tail 911s.

Yep I did. After haggling it cost about 25.000€ (originally 27.000€).
I meant the whole car altogether.

Funny, looking at the pictures, that's the first thing I was thinking as well. Looks like a good place to be in overall.

Although we may have our different ideas of the direction Porsche went with this new GT3; I think we could all honestly agree that we would have a massive romance explosion (figuratively of course ) driving behind the wheel of this machine. Not to be crude or anything.

this.

i really cant think of too many cars i would have ahead of this in its price-point. there are others, but not many. zr-1? gt-r? vantage? used 360CS? M6? all of these are good, but i really have no idea which i would take. but i would be happy to take any of them.

Definitely. I´d probably take this over anything else on 4 wheels. Even in pink.

EDIT: I would then proceed to paint it green.

I'm not a fan of those either with the exception of the 993 Turbo and the "Ducktail" of the 911 Carrera 2.7. The 911 Carrera 2.7 - now THAT was a trackday special.

Agreed.

Oh good Lord, I'm turning into one of those people who only like the air-cooled cars, aren't I?

Don't roll like that - the Porsche "purists" that would have us all driving Carrera RS's or 930s or 993 GT2s.

Watercooling is superior and changes nothing about the car really.

You can complain about the new looks (which are way better) or the "neutered" handling, but the air-cooled/water-cooled divide I think is silly. It just so happened that along with that change many there things were many other changes - and for the better in my view (No I have not driven a Porsche).

THe one's in the 9ffs are 4.0L.
I'd imagine that the factory will stop making them larger at 4.2-4.5L.
The GT3 RSR is already a factory 4.0.
