I'll be holding on to my 991.1 GTS cab, that is for sure.

There's so much win with the antenna!
I bet it accepts wireless signals from the inner fender microphones and sends those to the local weather station so we can get the rain reports in time for the afternoon commute. It also transmits fender bender reports, while instantly ordering fake exhaust tip replacements via amazon, all the while filing an automatic police report and speeding citations...that is if the car isn't trying hard enough to figure out how fast or slow to go in case of inaccurately geo-tagged pedestrian zones.

I'm sooo keeping my .1 GTS.

There’s nothing you can do with that rear end to make the car look good. The Cab always looks worse than the coupe. Nothing new here.

The antenna is for a CB that the factory test drivers use to stay in touch with each other.

Yeah no I think it's 100% what Bemo said.

A CB?

That makes me want to smuggle some Coors.

I think virtually all cabs look worse than the coupe (the lone exception being the Aston Martin DB11). The last 911 I owned was a 2012 Turbo Cab that looked good with the top down and hideous with the top up. My wife owns a 2001 BMW Z8, a beautiful, iconic car, and it looks pathetic with the top up. It’s simply the nature of the beast. That’s why I’ll never but a cab again.

By the way, I really don’t get all the bashing going on about the 992. I think it’s really good looking. I love the exterior changes and really love the interior changes. If you own a 991, good for you. Personally, I think the 991 looks dated compared to the 992.

Porsche purposely made initial release ugly so they can vastly charge you for options to improve the look. not to mention .2 update.

The back end of the car is definitely looking a little too busy. Although moving the license plate down from the bumper to the middle of the exhaust fascia is not a bad move.
