It's never going to happen and you know it. They will never put a "CSL" rear end on it like the camo.

I like the fact that the 911 just slowly evolves. You know what to expect but it always looks good.

they said the same thing in the 80's but then again look what happened then? front engine, rear wheel drive? datsun-esque styling? then in the 90's they brought back the proper shape. i'm saying they'll do anything extravagant but i do think they need to add some sort of flare to the rear. as the rear looks now it needs a wing to look like secks (refer back to both 997 GT3's )

Hahah dude a lot of things happened in the 80's that should have never been. Cough cough "New Coke"... just like porsche they found out right quick. That they just had a major "oh shiit" moment. Then immediately putting the "classic" stamp back on.

Oh yeah a wing for sure, but it isn't going to be intregrated into the body type like a CSL or a "bangle butt". The rear will still have the familiar slope with the wing on top like the GT3. Though I still think it will be wingless for just the basic models.

but on a sidenote what if they did something similar like the GTR wing on the caymen to the 911? it has a sort of butt spoiler followed by the swooping wing...let me see if i can find a pic of what i'm talking about

anyways, i'm going to go to jun's place today to work on valve cover gasket. if you want to drive down there, i could help you. i will be using jun's tools though, so i don't know if he will have everything. well i'm pretty sure he doesn't have a C clamp. everything else he should.
