@ Speedy - I second the maintaining part of it. Still have to come accross a Porsche or any vehicle for that matter, which is cleaner than the grey one.

The spoiler is indeed original, but the tail-lights are not the ones from the 997 Mk-II (the facelift model). These tail-lights are becoming a rage across the UK and parts of Europe. Many owners of the pre-facelift 997 type 911 have gone in for these lights to give it a fresher look. They do not require any modifications and just drop into the tail-lamp housing.

The face-lift 997 II's lights wouldn't fit without modifications to the bumper. Also, they look quite different from these after-market units.

Looks like a SpeedART exhaust, Shamik.

I must say, it looks fantastic. A tastefully modified 997-911 Turbo. The wheels are exquisite and the exhaust-system is a nice touch. Kudos to the owner.

EDIT: I'm sorry, I have been mistaken. The exhaust what we see on the grey-997 Turbo are chromed and polished, bolt-on exhaust-tips that were specifically designed for the 997 Turbo by DesignTek (Part No. 3606409705). I'm not sure if any modification has been carried out to the actual exhaust system

I saw it in Cuffe once too. Certainly had a modified exhaust, it sounded sweet.

That's not a 9ff. 9ff has a bodykit. This is the standard bodykit. This also has stock rims. 9ff has deepdish rims. And the rear is stretched slightly. Not viewable from the angle of your photo.

That just looks like a 911 Turbo with the 9ff stickers. The real 9ff looks very different and has a wide body kit.

This certainly seems like a sticker job .
The exhaust can be any aftermarket one.
Plus , The 9ff has sort of deep , sunk in alloy wheels. These are normal turbo wheels.

I dont think anyone has said that it would be a full 9ff Turbo. I heard the exhaust and it sure as hell wasn't stock. It has to be a 9ff exhaust, since I believe the owners of such a car would not put up stickers just for the heck of it.

If it's 9ff's full-blooded 997 Turbo coupe conversion, then this thing churns out roughly 900bhp at nearly 1000Nm of torque. I believe this particular vehicle isn't that heavily tuned, but possibly exhaust mods, sticker job and certain engine tweaks/refinements courtesy 9ff.

This one looks too stock to be a 9ff. Any 9ff modded car, even lightly modded would firstly get a change in bodykit and rims.

If i remember right, she only sports the exhaust and has the 9FF sticker, i might be wrong but she is tuned too.

I doubt the tuning. It was up for sale too a few months ago and it was stock. Didn't have the 9FF sticker

I never said that its a stock or just a cheapish aftermarket chinese exhaust ! I just said the exhaust would be aftermarket. But it doesn't look like an original 9FF to . I just said it for the stickers part.
