You have no idea what a Honda or Acura interior looks like. Their center console stack just out so there is no continuous line across the dash. The 992 interior with that wide non stop line across the dash is classic Porsche. Echoes 993, 930 and 997.

Lol. I guess it's a human nature to bitch about a new car design.

I think interior is a step that PAG should make to keep up with other high tech cars out there. No question about it.

My only issue is that I will miss the cool yet flimsy cupholder of 991 gen over this monster cup holder in the center. And, now I'm starting to think PDK shaver looks pretty futuristic. Sorry.

For me it's not really the looks that's the problem but function. I drive my 991.2 TTS almost exclusively in manual PDK and shift using the lever. Paddles are much less engaging.

People complained about the BMW e46 when it came out. I don't remember a time when everyone said wow the new one is great.

993, 964 both interiors were moderate improvements and well received.

And I still wish the 991 had a real handbrake.

I remember when Ferrari used the tiny t bar shifter a decade or so ago.... Iĺm not offended by the nubbin. Just makes sure I keep 2 hands on the wheel

same here I like having redundant controls for the tranny, it makes the car more engaging in more situations.

The gear shifter itself looks metal which is good. But the huge plastic area underneath it is completely unnecessary. Why not make that smaller, or make it out of leather or metal.



Mercedes had a small shifter in the AMG GT and did it much more elegantly.

In one article, it was mentioned the shifter felt "cheap" or similar language. I'd have to find the quote. Something like no leather, etc ...

I exchanged words with one of the journalist who was at the test drive/ride event. He said that shifter is real and no more shifting up or down from the shifter just use steering wheel pedals or not

Sad day then. It's not just they got rid of a valid shifter, but replaced it with a ridiculous looking nub. As you mentioned might as well replace with buttons. It looks dumb and prone to breakage.

Whomever came up with it at Porsche needs to be fired, and I truly can't believe this would have made it all the way through the focus groups?? Really? Seriously?? I would have tried to rip it out of the car and find the nearest trash can.
