993 because will impress weirder nerds over coffee on Sunday mornings instead of just accountants and children.

in some ways it does, but the exposed fasteners on the flares just kill it for me

The 991 also looks excessive, but the multi-color exterior makes it look worse than it is imo. I'm guessing exposed carbon on the 991 can be painted over from the factory if desired. To me it's as much how the body mod is integrated as it is that it's there. Both cars scream function over form, but it's impossible to hide the fasteners and the distinct "I drilled into a factory body" look of those bolt-on fenders.

I like the 997 GT2 or 2RS better than either of these.

can't find a direct comparison of lap times, but the SS is marginally faster than the 997.2 Turbo and significantly faster than 997 GT3 at Laguna Seca...so, by virtue of next gen cars being faster than their predecessor, 2 generations of cars should be definitely faster, and yet were still slower than the heavy chevy.

tbh, liberty walk actually has better bolt-on fitment. I threw up a little saying that.
