I especially like the center divider between the seats in the Buick - you can see they put a lot of thought into that piece - it's a work of art.

I like it. I'm a razor guy myself and don't do electric.

Haven't jumped on the hipster beard thing yet

$300K Porsche and Made in China carbon. Interesting. Have heard some have found other Chinese made parts on some other 911 models as well.

/\ Looks good. Don't understand all of the negativity. If you don't like, cool. Don't purchase . . ., but almost 1,000 post dominated by the same who engage in the same brainless 991.1 versus 991.2 debate says perhaps more about the individuals and their ridiculous post counts than the car.

Go crash your 991 forum rather than engage in this retarded discussion where "enthusiasts" interested in purchasing or those having purchased a 992 will come to discuss and be excited about.

I love 911s and 911s have always been a bit awkward looking. Over the years, I have just learned to appreciate them all. I do think the 993 and the 997 are the pinnacle 911s, but I appreciate the 991 and 992 as well. Hopefully, the 992 will look good in the flesh, the sale numbers will be good and the 911 will be around for many years to come.

911 lines are generally better suited for coupes, but man o man are 911 cabrios fun. I keep the top down on mine about 80 percent of the time I drive them. Great wind protection, comfy and fun to drive.

Yeah, but my real question is: "How do you like your DB11?" (jealous)

I like it. I have the 12. The new V8 drives better with less weight in the front. My wife purchased it for me for my 50th birthday. I then sold my 458 street car to keep the car budget in check. I miss that car and think it was my favorite car I have owned.

I spent a fair amount of time driving the new Vantages. They are nice. I developed a new fondness for Aston Martins since having the DB11. Amazing cars with incredible coachwork and great sounding engines.
