Speaking of hate......The dashboard transition from the instrument cluster to the nav screen is so bad that it was likely started as a joke in the design department that accidentally went too far.

I really think the designers were given some instructions to bring back some classic design cues from older models. Given that, give it a coherent look to the rest of the model line, make a one size fit all cost savings body, make sure it can be a hybrid, find some designers willing to to part-time off Craigslist, all the while cut costs while increasing MSRP. You get ....

I'm feeling very fortunate that my December build GT3T will have the "old" and "outdated" 991.2 interior and exterior. And as we all know, the Touring comes with a stick only, so no nubbin for me! Is AP really going to allow his 992 GT3 PDK to have a nubbin in it?!

911 cupholder, although inconvenient, was a really cool element of driving a sportscar.

992 cupholder... looks like its straight from Toyota.

I will say, and has been mentioned, even on RL there was a lot of whining about the old cup holder. I thought it was fine. It's supposed to be sports car, not a mini van. What next, a small fridge under the dash?

They must have had soccer mom consumer focus groups that didn't understand the current cup holder.

Be careful what you joke about because once the Taycan goes on sale Porsche will officially be in the appliance business.

Why do we need one thread to bash the 992 and another to praise it?

This all seems very political.

There are things I like and things I donít.

I like the exhaust manifolds. I dislike the rear stop light.

See. Easy.

All the complaints were getting in the way of the intention of the other thread. Maybe this one will be more popular ??

Why dilute the other thread with all the wisdom here??

Everyone always initially hates the new 911 variant, drives one, and then is like "WOW, great car". The same story will happen for all future variants.

What a nice story.........It's too bad that the next variant will likely just be a set of stylish virtual reality glasses you will wear to pretend your driving fast down a winding country road..... Then we can say " WOW great program"

The cupholders, and the possibiity to completely hide them out of sight, was my wife's favorite USP (UBP?) with first our 997, then the CGTS, then the GT3.

New is always better in mechanical engineering (and girls).

Don't obsess with old cars, please.

No, no, no, I think the Canamera is going to be a great luxury GT car and it fills that open spot in Audiís line up between the RS5 and the R8V10. I hope it comes with lane keep assist.
