The vette does change, look at the differences between the c1-c3 body styles all completely different, of course after the c4 they followed the same general shape with minor changes.
Bruce-Almighty Tumblin Aug 27, 2012
Its timeless & a classic body style! Hell, you can say the same thing about the Corvette, it never changes
Bruce-Almighty Tumblin Aug 27, 2012
They don't have to change the 911, it still looks good to me
Jorge Gonzalez Aug 27, 2012
Look at the bright side, at least we will never be surprised when new Porsches come out, just expect a beetle lookalike.
Wyatt Gordon Aug 26, 2012
I still prefer the 997, but this is starting to grow on me
Ivan Alfaro Aug 26, 2012
what model is this, 2002 carrera 4, or a 1950's VW beetle?
Ryan Haverty Aug 26, 2012
It's not being lazy it's called business strategy to build an empire!
Besim Hojhalli Aug 26, 2012
Bring on the Gf's lol
Ruel Lewis Aug 26, 2012
If you can easily spot small details you'll see they're are different front air intake bars as well as the classic reflector bar at the rear which seems to have LEDs incorporated in the entire strip.
John Serely Aug 26, 2012
@jesse well, you must not know much (read: anything) about Porsches. This is actually similar lol.
Bobby Junior Aug 26, 2012
It is similar. The width is larger, it has awd, and it has a light strip at the bak
Jesse Weis Aug 26, 2012
Hang on, this is the new one? The porsche designers are just lazy shits. It is identical, not similar, identical to the current one
Walter Alexander Thomas Aug 26, 2012
This car is so freaken nice. Very luxury and sporty.
Pablo Herasme Aug 26, 2012
I got to say 991 is going to be good
Ahmed Barrasali Aug 26, 2012
Never get bored looking at the 911.
Chris Penza Aug 26, 2012
This generation is awesome. I can't wait until the turbo and gt3
Edin Beka Aug 26, 2012
Every Porsche that I see looks almost identical. No offense, it looks good but very repetitive.
John Serely Aug 26, 2012
Ahh....such a great car. I'd take this over a GTR, ZR1, or even a Viper!
Donald Chip Schofield Aug 26, 2012
Looks the same. But an AWD 911! Yes
Bala Uncc Aug 26, 2012
Holy mother of god
Dennis Choong Aug 26, 2012
I'd prefer Porsche uses the wide body on the S models instead of the 4
Description: Both engines have direct fuel injection.
Teamspeed also points out that in the image showing the front end of the car it's possible to see the optional
"Adaptive Cruise Control" ...

lights look a bit small for it IMO, but its still pretty good
Edmond Gebara Aug 26, 2012
No Darrell, it's not just you.. It's anyone with eyes and taste. Unquestionably nicer than the already impressive standard carrera. You just can't beat that extra stance the wider rear gives
darrellbell24 Aug 26, 2012
is it just me or are those lights secretly awesome
Chris Penza Aug 26, 2012
This is an awesome car, but I'd still rather have the rwd carrera
Dillon Dixon Aug 26, 2012
Thy light strip really brings the whole rear together! It looks magnificent!
David Eslava Aug 26, 2012
This is beautiful, that light strip is a masterpiece!
John Serely Aug 26, 2012
Absolutely great! I love the 991 taillights, and the light bar looks great
Matt Piccolo Aug 26, 2012
This looks awesome
Bala Uncc Aug 26, 2012
I think the line distinguishes it from rwd
Louis Marr Aug 26, 2012
I like everything but that line of lights that stretches out between the lights
Bull Dogone Aug 26, 2012
No haters allowed. This car is beautiful. The only German make always an icon.
Petre Draghici Aug 26, 2012
A real masterpiece
Avery Williams Aug 26, 2012
Yet another masterpiece created by Porsche. Now let's see what the Turbo and GT3 look like!!!
Mike Ralsh Aug 27, 2012
Jesse, one does not simply mess with perfection.
Ramaury Rodriguez Aug 27, 2012
Lmao there goes Connor.
Isaias Almanza Aug 26, 2012
I never liked the cabriolets. The coupe looks great.
Rockesh Boulder Aug 26, 2012
I thought the Carrera S looked good. But this is like a king compared to that. I can't wait to see the 991 Turbo!
John M Weishahn Aug 26, 2012
I like the fact that the overall design haven't changed much. Like the Jeep Wrangler or VW GTI it's a car that continues to evolve incrementally.
Jesse Weis Aug 26, 2012
By the way i dont mean to start any arguments, it looks good, its just, posche hasnt changed the design of the 911 since the late 80s, youd think theyd update it once in a while
Jesse Weis Aug 26, 2012
Ah haha, i have found a difference from this to the curent one. There is a line between the taillights, yeah, sure have updated this one, a line, yeah
Justin Routh Aug 26, 2012
@Jordan haha connors an idiot i dont care if he sees it. Its obvious he doesnt know much anyway lol
John Serely Aug 26, 2012
That looks great, the brown coupe has a great color
Jordan Jackson Aug 26, 2012
@Justin: don't let Connor see that, lol
Justin Routh Aug 26, 2012
I use to hate porsche like anyone else who doesnt know much and thinks they all looks the same. Now i hope they keep the design forever haha gotta love porsche
boldcars Aug 26, 2012
Definitely take the 4S
Bala Uncc Aug 26, 2012
I will take the macadamia metallic color
Bull Dogone Aug 26, 2012
Very modern design. Kudos Porsche.
John Serely Aug 27, 2012
@jorge in glad we came to an agreement :)
Jorge Gonzalez Aug 27, 2012
Haha alright dude do your thing.
John Serely Aug 27, 2012
Oh, and I don't care that you don't like something that I do, I just don't like trolls (like you)
John Serely Aug 27, 2012
@jorge actually, I've been on this app since it started. And your right, now it's becoming full of fanboys (ahem...colby, Matt etc) and trolls (you)
Jorge Gonzalez Aug 27, 2012
Dam what a bunch of little twats on this app nowadays, shit was different when it first came out, now it's full of a bunch of fanboys who can't stand if someone doesn't like something they do.
John Serely Aug 27, 2012
@jorge this is actually a 991, not a Beetle. If you can't tell the difference, then GTFO. Even if your trying to be "funny" that joke has been used far too much. Your probably trying to sound cool, but in actuality, you don't sound cool at all. Haha!
Jorge Gonzalez Aug 27, 2012
Introducing the 2013 beetle, now in shit color.
Wyatt Gordon Aug 26, 2012
If I had a Porsche, I would never use cruise control. In fact, I would take the whole system out and save some weight
John M Weishahn Aug 26, 2012
That cruise control sensor is going to be blocked by US license plates.
Chris Penza Aug 26, 2012
I wouldn't use the adaptive cruise control if I had this. I'd take every chance I had to drive it
Zachary Maurer Aug 26, 2012
One little thing that I like about this is the laser guided cruse control housing is in the center of the bumper, instead of Chryslers placement of off to the right, just somthing little, but...
Bull Dogone Aug 26, 2012
Such amazing fluidity in the lines. This thing must look sick in a wind tunnel. Great job Porsche. Bringing sexy back to brown. Who knew?!
Tin Nguyen Aug 26, 2012
Love the wide rear fender
John Serely Aug 27, 2012
@stephen and Zane: or Apple could just make a 911 fighter, called the iCar...
Jorge Gonzalez Aug 27, 2012
Maybe apple will think to get even with Porsche by introducing the new apple iPhone Porsche?
Zane Turner Aug 27, 2012
@ Stephen, I'm fully aware of this, I was trying to be clever due to Apple's ridiculous Samsung ordeal.
Wyatt Gordon Aug 26, 2012
looks better as a Coupe IMO
Stephen Cobbs Aug 26, 2012
Porsche has had "4S" forever if anything its the other way around.
Zane Turner Aug 26, 2012
Oh no, is Apple going to sue Porsche too for using "4S"....
The-Joe Talbot Aug 26, 2012
I know u said I would stop but, trolling is going to every Porsche page and saying negative things about it. Yes I have driven porsches, yes they are amazing cars. But style is all the same
Jon Ashley Aug 26, 2012
Looks sweet with the middle light bar, though do porsche really need to spell out the whole, 911 carrera 4s? it would be much cleaner with just the porsche name
Thibault Leroy Aug 26, 2012
I would much rather own a lotus over a 911 unless its the GT2 RS or GT3
Justin Chavez Aug 26, 2012
While other cars do beat the 911 in power ratings, no other car can function in all conditions whether track or road. As motortrend's best driver's car, it further proves that not only us nuts think the 911 is the most capable and exciting car to dri
Justin Chavez Aug 26, 2012
Aside from design, the 911 is the only sportscar/supercar that you can functionally drive everyday with exceptional reliability. It is an extremely easy car to drive unlike most cars at this performance level and can master any racetrack.
Dennis Choong Aug 26, 2012
... read up on Manthey Porsche on why 911 is special
Dennis Choong Aug 26, 2012
@connor- 911 has a definitive handling characteristics... no car can slingshot out of a corner like a 911. An average driver would not be able to appreciate the strength of this rear engine icon, but in the right hands it's breathtaking...
Rockesh Boulder Aug 26, 2012
Connor, I have to get pissed at you again. Porsches are FREAKING AMAZING!
Tara Fitria Aug 26, 2012
@connor you'll have to YouTube the Porsche commercial to see that.
Tara Fitria Aug 26, 2012
@Connor what other cars combine a pickup truck, snowmobile, getaway car and a school bus (according to Porsche), better than this car? Call me curious.
Lester Tatchell Aug 26, 2012
Love it. Gonna own one very soon.
Skylar V. McCune Aug 26, 2012
Lol, not much to see here...seen one basic 911, you've seen 'em all. They look better with each refresh though. Looking forward to the Turbo/GT2/GT3.
Justin Routh Aug 26, 2012
@Connor have you ever driven one? I find it funny that all the guys from top gear, drive, motor trend, road and track, ect... would probably agree that porsche makes the best sports cars. But youre entitled to your opinion that they "arent that great
Ben August Aug 26, 2012
Hey "the-joe" could you change your name to "the-troll" ? Thanks.
Josiah Thomas Clements Aug 26, 2012
A rich history. It's already a great design, no need for change here. If you want radical design change, go visit Kia or something. If all your going to do is complain about the design, don't even bother to open the article. It's that simple.
Ron Vinson Aug 26, 2012
@ Paul - It is perfection. In fact, MT just named it best performance car with money no object. It is an automotive icon. I hope you are enjoying episode 3 of "Honey Boo Boo."
Josiah Thomas Clements Aug 26, 2012
Im so sick of everyone complaining about the 911 looking the same. The 911's design is constantly evolving with every generation. It's been that way since the beginning. Porsche isn't going to radically change the shape of a car that's had such
John Serely Aug 26, 2012
@paul um...I respect your opinion, but I completely disagree. They are not boring at all to look at, haha!
Justin Routh Aug 26, 2012
Theyre more than good enough with every generation that comes out
Justin Routh Aug 26, 2012
Obviously nobody means perfection nothings perfect but seriously why would they keep it the same for so many years if it wasnt great? All im saying is everybody whos driven a porsche says the same thing. They dont need to change a thing about th cars
Paul Dickey Aug 26, 2012
I wish people would get out of Porsches ass. Every Porsche fanboy uses the word perfection. Get outta here with that. And besides they all look boring as hell.
Paul Dickey Aug 26, 2012
Gotta side with the joe on this one.
The-Joe Talbot Aug 26, 2012
This is my last comment on this useless thread. All I was alluding to was they could use an overhaul to make people say wow that is different. Only Porsche in my opinion that does that is the GT.
The-Joe Talbot Aug 26, 2012
There are much nicer cars out there. Not hating on Porsche in general and don't tell me to educate my self that's just ignorant. They are nice they are not "perfection". Just round in the front round in the back big deal
John Serely Aug 26, 2012
@the joe: both Justin's are right
Bala Uncc Aug 26, 2012
Nice color, I think it is macadamia metallic
Justin Routh Aug 26, 2012
No reason to mess with perfection. Theres a reason the design hasnt changed much, theres a reason people keep going back, theres a reason theyre some of the best drivers cars. Educate yourself about porsche first
Justin Chavez Aug 26, 2012
Ok the joe thats where youre wrong. Not every 911 has been beautiful and they all dont look the same. Yea the designs are similar compared to other cars through the generations but each one does look different and you cant say they are the same.
Matt Piccolo Aug 26, 2012
Love it! Great color
The-Joe Talbot Aug 26, 2012
Oh and no labeling me a "troll" I just think its stupid how much people rave over the same thing. Awd is not that great of an accomplishment. They have great engineers, with little design concepts.
The-Joe Talbot Aug 26, 2012
Ok when you NEED the model on the back that means the design looks like EVERY other porsche. Seriously yea it looks nice but to say WOW what great design when they have looked the same for years lol
Jose Carlos Aug 26, 2012
Im with Christian, I like the debadged look. Alot cleaner. Although if I had one would probable leave porshe or carrera on it.
Bull Dogone Aug 26, 2012
I respect your opinion, but I like it. It's annoying when you have a general idea what you're looking at but not the exact model. This spells it out clearly. And being an obsessive person about symmetry, the placement of the lettering is great.
Christian De Prisco Aug 26, 2012
I just wouldn't like all that on the rear, perhaps just PORSCHE is enough
Abraham Mendoza Aug 26, 2012
That stance. It's...perfect.
Rueben J Yslas Aug 26, 2012
Im an american car company guy but this is like the only German car if I had the money I would buy.
