Looks great. Only reservation is around the rear end as some others have said, but it could make a great wide body classic 911 lookylikey conversion Thumb

Interesting but I will put my money with 996 on something like this...…

how on earth there are still some people complaint about 996 look?!

I think we will see more and more 996 very nice and cool conversions.

Hat's off to the chap, that's a huge amount of work and it's very well resolved.

Still strikes me as remarkable that the 996 was and is the only Porsche to take the design language forward from the round lights, and that the outcry was so strong that every generation since (997, 991, 992 and doubtless future models) went back in time to be, essentially, a pastiche of the older cars.

In that sense, he's both back-dated and forward dated this car - which nails the 996's position as the model when it all changed.

it's a big NO from me. Proportions all screwy. Lights too small. the tail is so long it looks squashed.

Fascinating that Pinky actually drew a number of his 996 concepts with round lights akin to the older cars

It's a more convincing retro homage than the 997! Very Happy

No they're new today. The headlights need reworking as they look like a teenager about to drop his 15th ecstasy pill of the night. But I'm still liking the concept Thumb

I don’t get it. A massive amount of work to make a great car look like a Frankenstein nightmare vision of a slightly older car?

Too pointy at the back, odd looking at the front. Maybe I’m a bit weird but I have coveted 911’s since I was 8 and my mate showed me his dads chocolate brown turbo and I reckon the 996 is the best looker out of them all including the 997/991/992. Although I would say that wouldn’t I

I’ll get me coat

It’s getting there in my view, based on the latest pics. Hopefully version 2.0 will be a lot more nicely resolved (assuming there is going to be a version 2.0). Personally I think the looks are light years ahead of the 996 but that’s just me Very Happy

I’m wondering though why did he start with a 996. Why not start with a 997 and just backdate the rear end and add those classic 911 style grills beneath the 997 headlights Question

I commented earlier in the thread but those new pics have driven me to comment again. Mad

None of the things that make the older cars special have been added to that 996 by fitting that awful body kit.

That side view! Yuk

The rear overhang reminds me of those smaller American RVs that are based on a pick-up chassis, hence they have massive overhang. Wink



And the 70’s rear lights are far too small for the car.

Having said all that, if we all liked the same thing life would be boring, etc etc. Very Happy

I assume the overhangs are due to the design constraints imposed by the base car. The 996 and 997 do have fair sized overhangs front and rear which I would imagine are difficult to disguise on a backdate with the smaller rear lights
