I've never liked the front bumper treatment since it first debuted on the cup cars.

I felt the same with the 458 vs 488 and the F12 vs superfast so I'm lucky!
I think .2rs takes some of the bloated whale look out of the .1rs. Despite the only 20hp bump, im big fan of what seems to be some sculpting of a bloated looking 991.1rs design.

One man see bloated another sees muscular/strong.

Jamie: I agree but like with everything else we eventually become acclaimated to the new looks.

My same thoughts. If I can get a .2 RS then I will but I really have no complaints with my .1.

If I can get the fender grills from the .2 I will probably add those. The uprights might also fit and if so they might be a worthy addition

Looks like the hood, front vents and rear clip are all interchangeable. Hood will be "expensive" as well as entire rear clip. Then add prep and paint. Not worth the $$$ likely. I would leave the .1RS a .1RS. I might think about the changing the front vents. Maybe....If I don't buy a .2RS

Striking colour and stunning design. I have to say I was expecting a little more, perhaps there is a lot more under the skin e.g. GT2 "handling package". Also it is worth noting Porsche revealed their hand some time ago with the GT3 moving to a turbocharged platform so perhaps thats where the focus has been. Looking forward to the detail

In Porsche land, the car that has currently got my goldfish like attention is the next GT4, with this NA engine and say 450HP (less than the 991.1 GT3) it will be very special. Idle speculation.

Waxer, if you end up in a .2rs, do you have anyone lined up to take your post as world defender of the 991.1rs? I assume there's a search engine, siren and Batman sky light that triggers when someone, somewhere on RL mentions something like "6k WW production numbers"?

Keep up the good work in the meantime. And, in all seriousness, I have your back on LO/Salmon; it looks great on the RS!
