Looks as though side intakes remain the same design as 996/7...a little boring imo by now....

Anyone have any further info or clearer pics?

I dunno maxie, I quite like the side scoops - the turbo needs something to make it stand out from the base models, but not sure they work particularly well on the new shape - look a little like an after thought..?

In at least some of those photos, the turbo side intakes are actually just stickers...

As with the lights and bumbers any new intakes are likely to be disguised during testing so don't be surprised to see a new design come the official unveiling...

Not those two.

And that "C4S-alike" (or neutered Turbo) looks stunning Thumb

I think they need to lose the silly little driving lights on the extremities of the front bumper. Looks someone forgot to incorporate them properly.

Ditto 997.

Probably its most unaesthetic feature.

A) that is an artist's impression (and not official)
B) I am sure Porsche will spec worse so you have to pay extra to upgrade (worked on almost every 997 model they made)
