Yeah a bone stock base model 997 can be boring looking for sure, but you'd be surprised what the right wheels and stance can do for a car.




The best looking 911 is the 991 version(above) imo, but might be fun to do a 997 project car considering how low the prices are on some of them

Isn't the IMS issue a 996 problem?

That's a nice looking car. But I'd challenge your assertion that it's the best looking 911.

The Speedline wheels were my Christmas present, they arrived on Dec. 24th, and the 27th was a decent day so off to the tire shop to get them installed, it's dirty in the pic but I just love the way this car looks.

The 997 and 991 are beautiful and unbelievably capable cars but I do have a soft spot for the 964, 993, 356 and 930....the slant nose is very cool too.

No, primarily an issue with 997.1, non Mezger cars.

And grey is just a no go for me. I love silver but just can't do grey on any car.

I like the slant nose with the black Weissach wheels a lot more.
