Either way - I don't mind it

I kinda like the look, but I predict cooling issues.
Especially if it doesn't have a third radiator.

I read the title and thought, oh boy this’ll be hideous. But it looks fantastic.

Cool! I guess if you didn’t need headlights it would make this easier.

I like it. But then again, I liked the 996 wide body kit too.

Looks like it was put up for auction in 2015 (edited) sale by a dealer in France.

"«Slant nose» «La 911 au nez plat chromée à froid» Après le succès bien mérité de la 993, dernière des 911 à refroidissement par air, Porsche entreprend le développement d'un modèle entièrement nouveau, tant du point de vue de la mécanique que du style. Refroidi par eau, la 996 fera également parler d'elle avec son design décrié par les puristes irréductibles de Porsche mais les performances sont là et une ère nouvelle commence pour Porsche. Notre exemplaire de 996 est une voiture exceptionnelle à plusieurs titres. Basée sur une 996 Carrera 2 3,4 L de 2000, la voiture présentée renoue avec une tradition chère à Porsche, celle des 911 aux nez plats. Cette 911 est une réalisation unique qui aurait été commandée par son premier propriétaire, M. Knapp, directeur du magazine Autobild, auprès d'un bureau d'étude allemand «Auto-Expert». Le capot et les ailes, formés en aluminium, reprennent la proue si caractéristique des Porsche 935 de compétition. Les phares de cette 911 ont été supprimés au profit de phares au xénon situés dans les prises d'air du spoiler. Une fois la transformation effectuée, l'ensemble de la voiture a été entièrement chromé à froid selon le procédé Mirrachrome. Elle fut présentée lors du rassemblement Porsche à Stuttgart en 2006. Véritable Showcar, cette 911 est un modèle Carrera 2 de 2000, équipé du moteur 3,4 L de 300 chevaux et boite mécanique à 6 rapports. Il est immatriculé en Allemagne. Elle est dotée de nombreuses options et notamment le toit ouvrant, d'un kit carrosserie avec ailerons et bas de caisse, ainsi que d'un châssis sport. Elle n'affiche que 63 933 Km au compteur et se présente dans un état exceptionnel. Unique opportunité d'acquérir une création allemande reprenant les gènes des Porsche de compétition. After the well-deserved success of the 993, the last air-cooled 911, Porsche undertakes the development of an entire new model. With liquid-cooled engine and a new style, the 996 will receive a cold reception from Porsche-aficionados, but its performances will open a new era for Porsche. Here, this problem is totally resolved. And beyond that, this 996 receives an entire hand-crafted body shape, with aluminum bonnet and sides which evokes the famous racing 935 and 930 Turbo SE Flatnose. Probably made on request of the German Autobild magazine, Herr Knapp, to a design bureau, this car has new front with a flat bow. The Boxster-styled lights have been suppressed for a new Xenon-lightning. After that, the entire car has been chromed following the Mirrachrome process. Under its showcar's dress, this Porsche is a 2000 Carrera 2, 3.4l engine with 300 bhp and six-speed manual gearbox,, with German registration. This Slantnose was presented during the Porsche meeting of 2008 in Stuttgart. It has many Porsche options, a body kit with rear spoiler and underseals, but also a sport low-profile wheelbase. This hand-made Slantnose only has 63.933 km and is in exceptional condition, a unique opportunity to acquire such a piece of engineering, which takes place in Porsche history among the side of the 935. Kilométrage: 63 933 km au compteur - N° de châssis: WPOZZZ99Z1S603411 - Titre de circulation allemand German registration"

I still say it needs pop up headlights and fender vents. Head lights are too low to be legal?
