Did you notice that there is now a leather strap to release the front seat forward replacing the ugly plastic latch in the 991? Also there is no tray in the rear center console but in a photo I saw there appears to be a foldout drink holder on the side wall of the rear seat. Is that correct?

You can see the leather strap in the third photo. Nice change.

Yep. Leather strap for seat. Looked pretty nice to me.

Not sure about the drink holder in the rear seat. There is one that pops out of the dash for the fornt passenger. Felt a little cheap to me, but maybe they’re still tweaking that.

I don't see any Homelink buttons (garage door opener) in the overhead console.

And where is the Auto/Start/Stop button? Has it been eliminated? When I attended the auto show, a product specialist told me there were Panamera-style lights/buttons in the piano-black surfaces surrounding the shifter that lit up when he started the car, so there seems to be a bit of information about the interior that we're still not aware of.

Are the new seats missing a backrest release handle on the inside bolster? That was always a great feature that offered the ability to flip the passenger seat forward from the drivers seat without having to get out.

I'm assuming it may be similar to the latest Panamera, in that there is no longer an actual button. To manually turn it off when in normal mode, it's located in the menu option within the large center touchscreen.

So now it's going to be 3x more annoying to disable EVERY TIME you get into the car as it likely defaults back to ON with each key cycle just like the 991.2.

You cannot judge the quality or ergonomics of the interior from pictures.

You really need to sit in it to be able to judge whether the interior is better or worse.

My seat time in the 992 left me with the impression that ergonomically everything felt better. I think the lack of actual buttons on the center console won't be a big issue, although I have to see how some of the controls like Sport, Start/Stop, PSE, etc. on the PCM screen will work in actual driving situations. The biggest thing I noticed sitting in the 992 was that the steering wheel felt "cheap" and hollow. Other than that, everything else was fine, yes, even the Braun PDK shifter (which in my opinion is better than the 991 ***** PDK shifter).

Sure you can.. this is the interwebz! You can judge everything with 100% accuracy just by a blurry picture and absorbing all the BS posted online.

Actual first hand knowledge is highly overrated.

It is not like the Panamera with controls on those black surfaces. He was probably reading this forum.

On the panamera will the setting hold after you turn the car off? Having to disable start/stop every single time through an on screen menu would be a HUGE pita.

^ Seems like depending on options 1 or 2 of the 5 dash toggles is programmable...maybe can be used to defeat auto stop/start?

When I had a loaner for about a week, I would just turn the dial on the steering wheel to sport and it start/stop feature automatically disables. There's probably an easy way, but I didn't take the time to do so....

The start/stop feature on the 992 is probably like that on the new Cayenne. It can't be permanently turned off, but after startup it can be switched off by assigning that function to the diamond button, adding to the individual mode that function be turned off, or adding the function to the home screen where it can be turned off. I use the diamond button on my new Cayenne and it's not a big deal. Although I have to say that it is nice that my 991.1 has a permanent on/off feature.
