Agreed the 997 turbo is in my opinion the best looking 911, the proportions are so right.

The turbos are really on a high at the moment and rightly so, very good cars, Iím not convienenced it will last though

Had a 2003 996 turbo for nearly 4 years.
It was remapped and running 500bhp and it was bonkers, the grip level were sublime also.

I actually like the fried egg headlights on it, made it look different to the boxster (the whole point they changed to them as complaints from owners in the early model 996 911)

All in all it was an amazing car to own, done long distance touring and track days in it.

Was lucky enough to buy it when they bottomed out and sold it 18months ago so made a bit of money on it also which influenced my decision to sell it as it wasn't getting used that much due to work.

Haven't driven a 997 or 991 so cant compare.
Best thing is to test drive one if you can and see for yourself.
