Do you like NB or WB and state why ;)
 
Yes, another one of these. I've started collecting parts for my project - WB parts, because at one point I fell in love with an RSR...the look, wide and mean! Since then, I see so many NBs that catch my eye and I can tell you the ONE thing that really pulls me to the NB look...

The margin of the flat area at the edge of the wheel opening. I like that the NB has the really narrow edge there, where the turbo/wb is much...fatter/thicker. I think the smaller edge makes for a "tighter" looking wheel fitment. Anyone?

Did this answer your question?

Had both, WB 964 best looking Porsche, ever.
And opinion is like a* hole. everyone has it.

Happy building.

I like all of them, they all look good in different ways!

I like my WB for the way it looks in the rear view mirror.

I like the NB because it makes me think of a more nimble car.

If it is a Speedster, I prefer the WB by a long shot - the proportions with the low window just look better. It looks too small in NB.

But I will still take any of them over a lot, a whole lot of other cars out there.

For me, very much this. I'd only ever sell my car to replace it with another WB 964. That said I would also like to add a NB 964 at some stage if prices ever get sensible again.

Wide body by far, with the 3.8 RS being my favorite. So much so that I was thinking of forward dating my SC until I picked up the 964.

However, I went to pick up food last night and while walking back towards the car and seeing it shine under parking lot lights, it struck me again how good looking the car currently is. So I’m still undecided what to do with this car WB wise, but there’s no rush. I’m never getting rid of it.

I prefer the WB, but I think the points you picked out about the NB is what I love about the NB. I too think the WB 964 is the pinnacle of air-cooled in appearance, but I really think the NB is right behind it. Love them both!

NB for me guys, but I would slightly mod some FRP front wings I have , almost like an ST and that would make it in between NB to WB

NB looks just right & elegant on the 964.

Yes, it does.

It depends on the engine but really both bodies look great.

I like them both. All new cars are getting too wide and fat, IMO.

I have always loved the look of 964's.. but if I were to choose between looks of different iterations I would always go for the wingless WB on speedlines. The fenders (front and back) are just right! And the silhouette is quintessentially Porsche! It will never age or go out of fashion.
RUF hit the nail on the head with their new SCR.
I had portraits of my cars made by an artist with OCD-level of attention to details, you can compare them all on a side profile.. missing an RSR though :rolleyes:
