The rear end looks bizarre.

No way in hell the rear diffusor will look like that.

I appreciate the shape of rear end... just wish they would move the third brake light to the top of the rear window. That being said, the rear is right on the edge of having too many plastic accents.

The front grille area looks completely out of place. Just a giant rectangle of black plastic. Reminds me of the cup holders on the M3, which is fine on the M3 but not on the front of an otherwise organically shaped 911.

As bad as the grille is, the hood is by far the most hideous change. The straight edge alone the front of the hood is the worst thing since the fried egg headlights. It makes the front end look cheap and almost unrecognizable as a modern day Porsche.

It's a Porsche, great car. I kind of wish they'd stop getting bigger though.....at least they seem to be getting bigger.

The last 911 was the 997. This is just another bloated Audi-fied Porsche. It's almost a midsize luxury coupe now! Panamera Coupe.

The rear styling reminds me of the rs7 some with how the lights and slope of the rear section.

Yeah - I got to agree, it's no longer a 911, it's a 2 door Panamera, with the engine in the back.

The next one might be full electric with, so it won't be rear engined anymore...

I'm not 100% familiar with 911s, but are the headlights always so large in appearance like this?

This was posted a couple months ago and I cringed at the size but i think I like how it looks now. I’d love a Carrera S at some point, but need a bunch of pay raises or buy one of those crappy ones with the ticking timebomb IMS issue.

Beautiful but this is legit one of the most subtle redesigns ever. It's more of a refresh than anything. The interior will be straight out of the Panamera so there's no mystery there. At least with previous redesigns it still looked like a "new" car; there were obvious differences.

Hats off to the 991 though for looking just as modern today as the day it hit showrooms. I was shocked to see spy shots a year ago as the current car looks in no need of replacing. I suppose a little nip tuck is all Porsche needed to do really.

I do not want the rear end to look like that.

I get Porsche is pushing the rest of their line-up to look like this from the back but it works on some of their models it doesn't look right on others. I do not like this.
