Why was I expecting to see a pic of Bobba's car when I clicked on this thread Question

For me the best looking 911 ever is the 996 C4S

It may not be just you but it's certainly not me.

Don't get me wrong I like it, it has a stance and prescience but it's nowhere near being the best looking Porsche ever. A base 991 is better looking.

I'd probably agree - at the moment personally I can't think of another 911 that looks better than that. Maybe a riviera blue 997.2 GT3... or a Singer, but the latter probably doesn't count as not a factory Porky

It’s impressive but like johnttt I think the current, unadorned base 991 is a thing of real beauty.

Too many slots, strakes, vents, inlets, spoilers, etc. to call the GT2 beautiful. Purposeful, technical, aggressive: yes.

Its how the GT2 should look but nowhere near the best looking 911 ever, you need to go back to simple design times for that car.

I'm sure they'll sell plenty of posters for kids' bedroom walls but I'd say it's possibly the least good looking 911 ever. Purposeful but ugly (as ugly as a factory 911 can be anyway).

Any fixed rear wing detracts from the beauty of a 911 in my opinion.

But of course it's all in the eye of the beholder.

Isn't the best looking 911 ever the one that is parked in our driveways or garage? Smile

No 911 with an ironing board bolted to the engine cover can be accused of being good looking. They may be like Something Sofia Vergara dipped in chocolate to experience but to look at?!!! Less is more.

It's always been the 993 Turbo for me, and still is.

Certainly one of the most aggressive looking 911s but it's very busy as someone said above. Lots of bulges and vents etc.

993 turbo or 964 turbo?

The front looks great, loving the inlets, but the mechano spoiler ruins it for me.

The 964 targa must be in the list of beautiful 911s.

Very true Maxie, but my head is always turned whenever I see the 993 Turbo.
May never have one but came close a few years ago.
