Exactly why I can't quite decide on LO or the new green.

But on the other hand, a 911 not sport enough and not wild enough for a color?
Is that even possible?

I wish those white lines on the black car hoods were/are the actual shape of the front hood. The sharp edge as shown in the spy shots doesn't flow well at all with the rest of the car

That plus the door handles and the rear spoiler make me happy that I am in my 991. I hope they change my mind.

Yes they test the engines at top altitudes, they all still have the temporary 3rd brake light up there

Thanks for sharing - For me there are too many little things I don't like, like the pointy front, door handles. Rear bumber. The new exhaust outlets. on the inside the touch buttoms will be dirty all the time.
I finally ordered a 991.2 this week as I didn't want to miss out on them.

I agree. Although not sure thatĺs the final production front spoiler lip. Looks a little shiny for the grade of plastic that Porsche usually use for these parts.

Now we wait for the TT, which will have the 959 intakes.

It does look a lot like the 959 front, which I say is a good thing.
