    Personally the 993 is my favorite 911 model so far. The flared out fenders combined with the classic 911 look are just plain stunning. While the interior has progessed a long way in the 996 the body lines are just a little too subtle for me. I'm interested in what you guys think...
    Of the newer body styles though the GT2 and GT3 both have a lot to offer in their looks as well. I really love porsche's....

    Performance aside, if you could pick just one body style what would it be?

    996 twin turbo takes the prize for both looks and performance, followed closely by the 993 and gt2.

    In the last week or so i've been spending some time looking at Ruf. They really are an amazing company. And i'd have to say my new favorite porsche now is the Ruf Turbo R. The performance/bodywork/wheels/and interrior touches are all i could ever ask for in a sports car. If it had to be a stock porsche though the 993 Carrera S is my choice.

    as much as i like the wide body 996's (c4s, tt, gt2, etc.) the 993tt retains more of the classic 911 shape and looks just so badass that i'd give it the nod as well

    The car in the original Bad Boys movie was a 1994 Turbo 3.6. It is not considered a 930 (internal numbering by Porsche) but instead a 965.

    My favorite 911?

    This would be a tough decision between the new GT3 or the 993tt s. I love the classic looks of the 993 widebodies but something about the new GT3 is just intoxicating.
