Default 992 Sport Design Package

Saw this on the configurator today and I'm sure it will divide opinions.

I love the front. Looks like 991.2.

That was my thought as well. The rear I'm a little divided on the body color fins in the lower portion and the higher license plate mount.

I LOVE the front... the back... not so much. Too much black in the rear bumper... can't see any details... and the silver pieces below the reflectors look awkward.

I think its going to be popular to order the front only. I do think it looks really good. Back I think might look good on darker colors.

Not terrible. I wouldn't kick it out of the garage.

Rear looks terrible. Standard looks MUCH better

Front looks good (like a mix of 991.2 Turbo & GT3 front). Like the standard too however, so wouldn't spend the 3240$ for it...

I have never been a fan of 'sport design packages' in the past, but this really looks good...and a good option for those not able to take the visual leap to the 992...the intake design and more paint on the front, along with higher plate location on the back look very much like the 991.

Front looks nice and I like the higher plate placement on the back, but the hole in between the tail pipes looks like a dirt collector. Back will probably look best with Black paint option IMO

This is what it should have been all along,....at least in the front. Looks so much better compared to standard. The rear doesn't do it for me,....just some cobbled on trim.
Pity Porsche wants more money just to make the 992 look decent to begin with.

THIS is what I have been hoping we would see. Just thought it wouldn't happen for at least 6 months. I guess Porsche heard the cries from those that really hated the new gaping opening in the front bumper.

The sport design front bumper shown here has similar lines to the 991.2 GT3. Now I'm really excited for the 992 GT3.
