Not a waxer
I know I've taken a side-by-side photo but it's probably buried deep in the photo storage files right now. Did come across this one which while isn't true profiles still shows the difference between the perky butt black Mk3 and red Mk4.Too bad that picture collection doesn't have the Mk4 Factory Five. That's clearly a Mk3 or earlier. The Mk4 body shape -- especially the angle and height of the rear fenders and deck -- is quite different. It's especially noticeable when you have them side-by-side.
I like Backdrafts but yeah, some of their lines are kind of exaggerated. They are a bit bigger in all dimensions too; longer wheelbase, length, width, etc. I think of them as being like a Cobra done at 105%.
