PIC OF THE WEEK: 911 & 991
Classic shot of quinquagenarian Porker and its offspring is our favourite this week
Anyway, this image shows pretty clearly the effect of 50 years’ evolution on the 911. It’s rather a lot wider, notably longer, but a smidge lower; the tail’s risen, the front end’s more... erm... slopey... and a few of the shut lines have been smoothed away, but at heart, the relationship between the two is face-smackingly obvious.
There are few cars – in fact, there’s no car we can think of – that’s been through this many successive iterations and still retains such a clearly traceable stylistic link to such a historic predecessor. This image celebrates that fact perfectly. Enjoy.
