Pics of my 800HP Flat Blue 997 Turbo

Recommended Posts

To be quite honest I think that is the ugliest Turbo I have ever seen. Flat Blue? Why not Flat Rust? Why are black wheels so cool when EVERYONE has black wheels. :huh:

I'm sure mechanically it is excellent and you did an amazing job. Just seems like Porsche tuners are going the way of the Japanese import scene and and that is quite disturbing. They are freakin race cars for god sakes. What's next hydraulics?

Just my two cents. I'm sure I'll get flamed for this...... B)

I rather liked the flat blue. I've not seen it done that way before and think it's rather unique.

I'm trying to find a way to word it diplomatically, but in the end I have to say I'm with phillipj on the looks. A little too much show, obscuring the go.

I like the idea of a car wrap for the track, it protects the finish from the rash. But it accentuates not-so-great fit and finish on the bodykit bumpers.

I think that the Turbo represents Porsche's bread-and-butter entry in the "supercar" category, and therefore has a few absurdist touches that appeal to its exotic nature. But it's German, so the gaudy bits are far more subdued then they are on a Lambo or Ferrari. Taking the flares, intakes, and scoops to ridiculous proportion is just not in keeping with the aesthetic. On a GT-R, maybe.

I love the spirit of taking an already amazing car and making something more from it so I appreciate what's done here. But it's not my taste.

I don't know how I feel about the flat blue. It's something different, and in the case of this car my number one thought is regarding the impressive 800 hp. However, I will say that I HATE black wheels. I've hated the trend from the very beginning, and I've only forgiven it on racecars as it's always been an utility issue with racers rather than a looks thing. I hate them on streetcars though. It just looks like you haven't cleaned the brake dust off your wheels in ten years.

But ... it's all a matter of taste, and everyone's taste differs, so thankfully there's room for everyone.

If the builder loves it, then more power to him. Nice job.

I don't care what color it is. It could be pink for all I care. Did you say 997 Turbo? Did you say 800 HP? Where do I sign up. SOLD! :)

Great job.

What are those 2 black funnel looking things, in the carbon fiber enclosure area, in the 6th picture?

All that HP made you weak :D

Those funnely things are micro molecular fuel / air misting exstrapolators. Verrrry expensive..... B)

An outrageous color on an outrageous car. I like it--and the black wheels too! You might need a fatter roll bar though, and those honkin', yaller cailpered brakes with the pizza pan-sized ceramic composite rotors. Oh, and lose the rear seat backs; they're extra weight. And I hope you've taken a high-performance driving course to keep it on the ground and pointing in the right direction! Cheers.
