Reasonably impressed by the overall styling of the new Turbo. Think it successfully builds on the 991 styling themes and takes them to the next level. Very Happy

Pleasantly surprised by the bigger "ass" at the rear end - gives the car an extra wide, purposeful and menacing stance! Cloud 9

However, don't get the "split design" dual tail pipes - they don't seem to fit in with rest of the car. Yuk GT3 exhaust way better looking. Anyone else share this opinion?

Not sure, I don't mind the look of the twin pipes and I'm hoping it is indicative of a better sound than the 997...

Yes.

I don't understand the "engineering logic" behind it.

You have 6 cylinders and 2 banks.

These numbers don't divide well into 4 tail pipes.

On the conservative side, maybe one large oval/elliptical pipe per side could possibly have had much more impact and flowed more elegantly with the overall style of the car.

On a slightly more ridiculous approach, maybe a central grouping of 3 circular pipes (à la 458) might have given a more distinctive and relevant appearance.

Either way, just my opinion, an opportunity missed to really consolidate the rear end. Dont know

I like them, not sure about the side intakes though.
