Now back on the UK configurator with prices (which haven't increased!)

I bet 90% of the cars ordered for dealer stock are going to be sport design until Porsche wakes up and fixes the normal front and rear

quite boring & outdated IMO. Standard front looks much more modern. At least on real pictures... I agree that the standard front does not look good on the configurator
This looks infinitely better than any 992 I've seen

Back then the manufacturers didn't have to worry about pesky things like build quality, emissions, safety, handling...

That turbo exclusive is what... $300k+?
for DOUBLE the price I hope it looks amazing. Wait until the $300k version of the 992 is out, I have a feeling you'll like it.

Just specced mine up in black/crayon, front end PPF also included which isn't on the UK customer configurator

I think that SD package is a huge improvement in the overall aesthetics of the car. It feels like it flows better and is more balanced from front to rear.

This fixes most of what i didn't like about the exterior. Still agree the rear brake light is odd and the long rear window isn't ideal, but not a show stopper. I also don't think a car this size should have a 21 inch wheel, but overall this is a big improvement!

Doesn’t the Sport Design Package include the 3rd center radiator?

The new vert looks great from the front (we won't talk about the back), something about the windshield looks a bit different in a good way... and I do like the SD bumper a lot... maybe SD rear will help on the cab.

mmm...the standard front is beginning to grow on me - just seems to fit better with the new modern cues. I think this is the PASM version which is slightly more aggressive.

Just paint the front lip in bodycolor and and then put on clear bra over the hole front and your done. I think the standard front looks so much more modern, it makes the car look wider than it is.

Ok ok I’ll admit it. First to change my mind about the SDP and will be reverting to the standard front!
