That would be unfortunate. Love the low cowl and beltline on this car.

I'm just being a jackass. Turbo forum is ok. Traffic is really slow over there, though. Not much action unfortunately.

Back to topic - those Turbo spy photos don't really look like a 992....

All anyone talks about in the TURBO forum is how rich you have to be to buy a TURBO.

Looks like a C4 based on the lights.

Integration of the pipes looks different - extending more into the actual bumper. Has an r8 look to it.

I like the 991 interior - I am getting a '17 after all, so I will be stuck with it either way. That said, the interior has been unchanged for coming on 7 model years. It has aged well, but it's...

Interior is what really needs updating. I'm guessing a Panamera type deal.

There haven't been many major overhauls of the basic 911 shape

I mean the basic shape was slowly evolved from 1964-1998. 996 was obviously a huge change and the 991 was a pretty significant...

I'd be jealous if it had the 959's permanent wing. Coolest spoiler ever.

Turbo has 40/60 weight distribution like the rest of them. It's still got an engine in the rear - seems weird to compare it to a front engine v8 Audi, but whatever.

AWD dynamics are a matter of...

TT - 911 Turbo (ie twin turbo)
TTS - 911 Turbo S

It's not a very logical shorthand.

This is what I foresee for the TT/TTS platform. I suspect that the TT/TTS will be hybrid only and have performance numbers to rival the 918. 3.8 with new tech turbochargers would do the trick.

Age is key here

I've never been a huge fan of the 930 impact bumper look - I grew up in the 80s, so the 964 is the default 911 in my mind. Among the modern iterations, I still like the 993 best.

I hate the door flap. No bueno. 911s look best with the classic pull handle.

Good catch. I like that.

Front fog light/vent has a bit of a 991.2 Turbo look to them.

Front lights are flat and raised. Reminds me of the 928 or even the 968 lights.
