PostPosted: Tue Apr 16, 2019 9:51 am    Post subject: Ducktail's Reply with quote

My wife and I were driving back from the local suermarket and spotted one of these in the car park:



Not being a car person, she says 'ooh, whats that, its so sexy and curvey'
Erm, thats the newer model to what I drive every day honey, just in red..
We pull further around so she can get a better look
'Whats with the erection on the back? It would be so much nicer if it was a smooth profile'

eh!

Anyone else now have a much-changed opinion on ducktails?!

That looks like the 991.1 sport design kit. I'm torn on the duck tail........I'm not sure it does the 991 any favours. Whereas, I like it on some earlier Carerras.

I’m 50:50 on a ducktail for my 997 turbo. I love the look. Or even losing the turbo spoiler and fitting an ‘S’ style pop up Scratch Chin

Not for the crowd. But I’ve always been sympathetic to the Outlaw thing and have hardly been known as someone concerned about the crowd. Populism is a bit to ‘in’ at the moment. Besides we need characters not clones. Very Happy

What a time to be alive thumbsup
