It's a shame, but you're right F355

It looked the same from 1963 to 1993, so after 1997 the next new design could come up in 2027...

Yes it's a new brand car, but since the 996 series came out. The 911 haven't change pretty much. I would have liked a more radical appearance for this new gen.

It looks familiar - the optics are almost the same but the proportions are very different. Much wider and longer. Every panel of the body is brand new. It is a 100% brand new car.

I'm dissapointed, i was expecting a more radical facelift for the 991 Series.

Allfred leto  14y ago

thats odd how did the generation 911 996 carrera lap the hockenhiem short quicker than the current 911 997 carrera

Andrew heyman  14y ago

awwww what i dondt care waht direction the track goes but the 911 997 carrera is no where near as quick as the 911 997 turbo the 911 turbo got 1.30secs at willow springs so how the hell could a 911 carrera get 1.29secs at willow springs i mean the 911 turbo is lighter and more powerful so i think the person drivin the 911 turbo wasnt very good because 911 turbo could probably get a quicker time than the gtr at willow springs with a better driver

the next time someone put up laptimes put the best avaible laptime up not the worst... the Carrera did a 1:42.821 timeattack run..adding a 1:44min racelap is childish only to let it look more worse as it is
