Looks like the pre-facelift 997 GT3 RS cue got transplanted to the base GT3....certainly looks "racier"...

Stop looking at me! Look at me! Stop looking at me!
To me, it looks straight out of the '90s.

Look at the flag!
I agree with most of the above statements. I think overall it is not too bad. It does look like they took the 90's or earlier style and updated it for today's world. Personally I hate when companies keep bringing the old 'look' of cars to today's market. Some companies can pull it off, but others do a terrible job.

But back to this car. I do like like the interior as well. Porsche kept it pretty simple, and yet still made it look good. Having said all that, I was expecting a bit more from Porsche, but I can live with this.

I guess the rear lights aren't as pretty as the old GT3.

Oh well. It's still recognizable as a 911.

And by the way, is this the last verson of the 996-997? How many more facelifts are they going to do?

I like it.
I'm holding off judgement on the styling 'til I see it in a better color, but looks notwithstanding it'll be crazy fun to drive.

Why you put together 996 and 997? They are totally different cars, nothing to do with facelifts, aren´t they?

Actually I really like the rims. Love to see the car in black with black rims...

Because they're the water-cooled 911s (?)

Because a 997 is a highly modified 996.

Do want.

Why are we even discussing styling features in such a focused car?

In the same way the 993 was a heavily modified 911.

Because for $140K I don't want to drive something that looks ridiculous. What do you want to bet reviewers say they like the old GT3 more?
