991 GT3. Apparently they make them in other colours? Not sure why. Then the callipers don’t match the paintwork? Crazy.

2004 Porsche 996 Turbo

The 964 turbo was the last of the proper single turbo, rear wheel drive cars, before it all went soft with 4wd and twin turbos. Not to mention the front end which they screwed up on the 993. It isn't only aesthetically the best, it is also the pinnacle of 911 tech before it went all easy and PC.

I had a Black 964 Turbo, with all the 965 wheels and extras, also had the little front splitter, and colour coded whaletail, which finished it off.

I would love to have that car back, over all the other various Turbo's I've had.

Amazing looking car. The best.

Interesting- the 964 Turbo is a clear winner so far.

How about the 964 Anniversary... viola metallic, unadorned with spoilers but wide body... great looking car.

I'm going to go against the (964 Turbo) tide a little bit here. I don't like rear spoilers; for me they ruin the shape of any 911. I particularly dislike the big whale tail ones on older cars. So I wouldn't vote for anything - and I include GT cars in this - with a rear spoiler. All right then, perhaps a duck tail, but nothing bigger. Sorry if that is heresy!

Best looking 911 IMHO is a wide bodied 993 - probably a 993 4S in silver, no rear spoiler! True beauty whispers, it doesn't shout. Or was that wealth? Anyway.

964 Turbo. A work of art. Probably not the nicest 911 to actually drive though.

The 964 deffo seems a hit with the ladies round my manor. I asked the GF and she says deffo the 964 best looking and a majority of the time I see any round here they're driven by women.

And you're all wrong of course. Best ever looking 911? Easy, the new GT2RS. Bosh. Do I get a prize? Smile
