That Chiron interior , like the Mclaren is also perfectly simple and elegant and combines tech in a purposeful way. I personally don't have any issues with the screens on the cluster. It's the giant one next to it and the horrid center console that makes the 992 such a loser me....

Being as objective as I can be, the 991 interior is extremely true to Porsche form in retaining that Germanic simplicity. Often I get into it and find it a breathe of fresh air amidst a sea of gimmicky interiors. Often I get into it and think it doesn't really "wow" you like a typical $100+K car. Which is actually a cool personality trait of a 911, being that it doesn't conform, and it staunchly informs you that the interior is merely an environment intended to allow you to focus on the actual drive. It says a lot that the 911 has cultivated such a culture and yields massive margins. Having been inside a 992 (in my dream), it definitely goes further to "wow" you. But it also has some very clumsy and questionable design traits, which the 991 doesn't have. And it looks absolutely awful in that above photo.

Overall, the 992 interior will make your 991 interior feel very spartan, perhaps "outdated" (I hate that word as it's so subjective and doesn't take actual design quality into consideration). Whether you like or dislike that, is up to you. I loathe that stupid "pinch" nubbin shifter (antithesis to sportiness and ergonomics) and those digital "insta dated pixelated" LCD gauge screens.

992 seems to be a small improvement in this area.
They come in AWD as well......

I agree. Look in a Ferrari, Lambo, Aston etc etc ...they are all going digital. If Porsche stayed with all analogue gauges they would be falling behind and not appealing to the younger crowd that they need to attract. Many of us are traditionalist but we are older. Look in a modern day race car....all digital. I don't really like the dash pics that we have seen so far but I'm sure it will be quite different/great. 2 more weeks........

I don't think the issue lies nearly as much with the digital gauge cluster itself as it does the rest of the interior. The giant, distracting and counter intuitive multi function screen dominating the dashboard and the massive center console sporting controls with questionable ergonomics are what I believe has most of us concerned ( both younger and older crowd) .

Digital is fine, actually an updated backup camera , surround camera and all is great.

just wish it didn’t look like a Panemara interior and was unique to 911 only. Right now all of the. Pretty much will look the same from inside, or at least too similar.

that sucks

I doubt console will be as big and blank in 2 weeks.

You have to remember,....it's not that screens are more modern, they are simply cheaper to manufacture now even compared to analog gauges, a few years and every car will have them (the new VW Jetta can have them). Agree, for the younger crowd that is used to looking at screens all day long, this is what they demand. Nothing is wrong with them, they simply display information in a different way,....but the old adage goes, when everyone is special, no one is. The 911 just became a member of the everyone is soon to special crowd

Yup...and have since the 964. No 'transmission tunnel' is required for a driveshaft.

Instead of "outdated", perhaps the term is "vintage". The analog dash will feel vintage

At first I was stoked about the new interior for the 992. Not having physical buttons to touch while driving (and not taking your eyes off of the road) has already proven to be a nuisance for Panamera owners. I do like the new dash and how it can be customized. As far as the buttons go, I'll have to reserve my judgements until driving the new 992.

What is with the transmission tunnel obsession?
