Thumbs down New 997t Techart

I just saw the new Techart 997t and it sorta looks rice! Is it just me or should they have changed the look from the 996 version which it looked perfect with.

Nice. I want all my cars to look like catfish from now on, do you think that's possible or will I have to go to TechArt every time for that effect?

Well, at least they stopped doing that stupid wave on the side skirts of the 997 version. That helps a bit. Whatever, different strokes for different folks and all that.

If someone offered me that car for free, but I had to keep it just the way it was, I wouldnt do it. Sure that kit probaly looks good on a cavalier or neon, but not a Porsche. If anything had to be done at all, why didnt they take the existing bumper, and just lengthen it by an inch or 2 so it kept the same lines but looked lower and more aggressive. Like they do with the turbo, (the lip spoiler), I PS'ed it real quick to show you the difference a couple inches can make. Don't make fun of it.

I'm no German PartyBoy, Ja...but that makes me say "TOUCH MY MONKEY!"

Too German Kraftwerks techno, we want to be 1980's america looking for my taste. I see slant nose!
My opinion is that both designs lack tech or art. Now if it was 1985, party on!

My .02 only, so I guess on topic I agree with you, the new one sucks.

ya, id turn it down, as sad as it sounds. I like things I do to my car to enhance the car, not destroy it.
