The front looks good, the rear looks... different... maybe in a different colour it'd work better.

Just give me 991.2 GTS exterior with updated 992 interior

I hate every aspect of 992 exterior. redundant and ugly.

who actually wants flush door handle? or widened spoiler?

they change for the sake of change.

If they really want change, make an all-electric 992 so new Tesla roadster wont kick its ***.

The name of game is to make default exterior/interior as ugly as possible, then add "options" to make the car look better.

clever strategy.

iphone is like cheap crap compared to these porsche options.

Definitely LOVE the front, and the rear actually I mind less like this, which doesn't seem to be the popular opinion but hey, not the worst thing.

You're right. For this money there better be some active aero component. I'm concerned the lower lip is painted - wait until those stone chips and scrapes happen; why not leave this is black plastic which would be easy to replace??

SD looks better at least. Should be the standard bumper. Bizarre. Yeah, pay a bunch of extra $$$ to get it. Only Porsche.
