As expected, but the hunchback rear looks especially exaggerated compared to the 991. I don't know whether it's the taillight and bumper design or whether the lid is in fact higher than the outgoing model. More renderings here.

I like the rear on the coupe of the 992 more than the 991.2....

The cab I think I feel differently. Light bar works great on 991.2 C4S cab but on this I can't figure out exactly what it is that bugs me but I don't love it. Actually saves me money because I was scared I would love it and have to pony up for cab over coupe.

Now I just wish I could see the Targa which is my true love but I'm guessing I'll pull the trigger on a coupe prior to that.

Sorry, why did the 997 Hunchback have to make a return?

yep it looks dope from that angle... unfortunately from the back itís awkward looking.
Iím assuming it was the new intercooler placement that made them engorge the back like that though? Maybe itís no worse than the 991.2 and just a visual trick but it looks bad. Sport design may help bringing the plate up a bit higher.

Darn! My girlfriend is looking for a 997.2 Cab, I thought its hump was big, this looks like a giant ant. Guess now the prices on the 997.2 Cab will climb even higher...geez. Preggo Cab.

Just when you think things canít get any worse, the new Cab has a back that looks like it has a folding hardtop like the Peugeot 207 CC.

For some reason pse does not sound that great in the video. Gentian blue looks good . I have to see in person for final judgement but rear looks more like 997 and from side profile more like 991 . The bridge and roads at 7:30 marker in video look great , where is this place ?

It really accentuates how enormous the 992 a$$ is. And now I can't unsee the proportions in the Coupe
