Thread: Porsche got it right!

    Porsche got it right!

    I've been one of many to bag on Porsche for its recent cars: 996 & Cayenne especially. But, let's give credit where its due- the 997 is fantastic! It looks like a 911 again! I'll never lose my '73, but if I had the scratch, I'd get one, no question. What do you guys think?

    Dave, hang in there a few years...your '73 and a 997 will be an even swap. There was a low miles, good looking '96 993, also pretty lines IMHO, for sale at the Parts obsolete meet...owner was asking quite a bit less than I've been offered for my '72...

    I think the 997 is a step in the right direction....

    all we gotta do now is slam it and strip it, (well, sorta..since I live out here in the desert, I'm gonna need the a/c ) and fer cryin out loud, put some real seats in it...

    Oh yeah...and paint it VW light ivory...

    the 997 like the 996 has too much front and rear overhang.
