I suppose this is a tough one but someone on here might have both a 996 and a 997 and know the answer. Or, Loren might be able to tell from the manuals. It's my understanding that one of the ways Porsche kept the 997 slippery while adding the bulges was by changing the panels on the bottom of the car. Does anyone know if this is true and, more importantly, if those panels can be retrofitted to the bottom of a 996? Now I would never consider this for my race car due to the fact that it would be illegal :D but I would be interested in knowing if it's possible. Jim

They look similar but I don't know if they will fit. There is a transmission cover now too. You can compare the parts below: Attached File  996_underlinings.pdf   43.65KB   154 downloads Attached File  997_underlinings.pdf   62.2KB   159 downloads

Thanks Loren. It almost looks like they could work. The 997 panels certainly cover more area and appear to make for a much flatter bottom. Jim
