I agree simplicity can be achieved at all different price levels.

I guess the the other thing about this is there seems to be a lot of complaints about digital gauges, bigger screen, loss of buttons, loss of tradition gear selector for PDK, etc. and you posted a picture of an interior with barely any buttons, 5 screens to look at, and a button on the roof to select drive.

I like Iike the new Speedtail btw, both inside and out. Shame I probably won’t ever see one in person though 😢

Doesn't work for me. I need two front seats, a clutch pedal, and a 7 speed manual gearshift. They're not getting my $2 million.

LOL... if Porsche made this interior people on this thread would be picketing on the streets. Almost every criticism in this thread is worse on this interior. A high, distracting digital screen? How about 3 of them on this baby and then 2 more stacked even higher for rear view mirrors? This interior has zero style and zero luxury (which is kinda the point of the Speedtail) and would completely flop in a P car. You can’t look at the complaints in this thread then think that any of the same people would be happy with the starship enterprise interior posted above.

You can't fool all of the people all of the time. (Or even some).

Is that a car or a spaceship?

The 996 interior would look at home on a second gen Ford Explorer. The 992 shelf is a bit odd, but it could certainly be much worse.

Agreed, that thing looks goofy as hell. The designers were so preoccupied with whether they could, they didn't stop to think about whether they should.

Chiron has no screens so that is the model Porsche should follow. Maybe offer a “tech delete” package with old school gauges.

To me that's not a "simple and clean" interior. It is purposeful but looks very busy.

Porsche put a near perfect interior in the 991. All they needed to do was tweak it a bit and give it a more modern touch. There was no need to go full Lexus. You never go full Lexus.

New G class (and probably other Mercedes cars as well) has old school gauges as standard with all screen setup being an option.

FIFY so that your statement applies to what everyone says when a new model comes out.

Bottom line... With the 992 Porsche had the opportunity to get " back to form" by steering the 992 away from a full on luxury car interior and instead they chose to continue further in that Panamera direction which I view as a big mistake to the 911's identity.

The Chiron actually has several.

Not true at all. I’ve owned plenty of cars that were better than their predecessors. The 991 for one. And I've also avoided a few that weren't. The idea that every new generation is better than the last is foolish.
