    Looking at F1 and then the Indy car races , looks like the F1 cars are longer .
    looked for data on wheel base and width of the 2 and seemed to be of no avail..

    Easy way to tell the difference between water-cooled and air-cooled 911's: the air cooled ones' highest point in the roof is right at the top of the windshield. The water-cooled ones have more of a "bubble" roof where the highest point is slightly farther back from the top of the windshield.

    I wonder if that's because the engine change coincided with a redesign, or if it was necessary for adding a radiator without increasing the nose length.

    The Best use for the new water cooled cars ... is a deep front trunk with no spare tire.
    Air-cooled forever!

    Not usually into the stanced thing, but this thing is clean. Check out the hood. That's practically the best feature of all time.
