Gorgeous car. IMO the 991 is the ultimate machine but the 997 is the greatest 911 of all times.

I agree but I could change my mind if they built that 992 in your avatar. Mouthwatering.

I dont disagree. The 991 is a great car, but there’s a reason I miss the 997. Only thing I didn’t like was tire/road noise. Loved everything else about it.

It seems we will have to wait for the 994. These are designs by Alan Derosier (I am not affiliated).

My before and after measurements confirm that Eibach Pro-Kit lowers a 997 Carrera Base Non-Pasm exactly 0.75" front and rear.

Man, your car looks absolutely amazing after the Eibachs and spacers. When I went from the non-PASM suspension in my car to the Eibachs it almost felt like “ok, I have a Porsche now”.

What really surprised me, was that the ride improvement was almost as dramatic as the look!

I agree.. amazing how just a .75" drop and spacers can change the look of a car. The 305 rear tires also give the car the muscular look I was looking for.... and the handling is much much better now.
