    I think the DB9 was a better design when it first came out in 2004 than the DB11 is/was in 2018/17, but if I had to pick the DB11 is definitely the better looking car.

    I love the DB11. I think it's one of the most beautiful car designs of the last 30 years.

    Looks great externally but the interior looks cheap which is a major shame.

    Was behind this 911 the other day, took a few moments to figure out which it was as you dont see too many GT3 Touring's out and about.

    Looks awful. :confused: even worse than the normal one. At least on the proper gt3 they can say it looks ugly because race car.

    They don't look ugly, but the old ones look still better.

    That Porsche is beautiful.

    Apart for the Porsche decal down the side, always hated that.

    One thing I don't like is the exhaust in the middle. Needs quads.

    That 911 certainly looks ace from that angle.

    Was following this on the way to the in-laws yesterday.
    Very crap picture but I had my hands full and the ride was shaky. I think it was a Stagea, RS Four S. Made by Nissan it turns out.

    Nothing needs quads, it just looks silly and fake. Dual/quad systems only really make a difference if they are "true dual" systems (as in separate pipes all the way to the engine), but you never see that on modern cars due to costs and probably noise restrictions :(

    997s and earlier used to be (not sure on 991.1s). They look good on good cars, seem a bit pointless on 2 litres and other lower powered cars. I think the newer m3/4s might still be split systems (although the silencer is not that far away.
