The vertical face on which the "PORSCHE" logo is on. They've made that strip that is right in your face as opposed to being on the sloped bumper as less billboard like.

The rear spoiler design/layout reminds me of the 2017 Panamera.

In fact, so do those front hood creases.

Kind of an odd (deep muffled) exhaust note, don't you think? Does the current car sound like that??

Sounds different to me than the 991.2 (for the better). Not that we have a lot to go off of here, but from my initial impressions.

The 991.2 gets a bit of a whizzing sound in lower speeds.

I didn't care for the deep resonating tone - kind of sounds a bit like some of those loud farting mufflers I see on the back of Civics. After listing to some exhaust videos of the 991.1/.2, I prefer the sound of the current car. Anyway, thats whats on order for me right now (991.2), so it will be several years before i have to think about a different exhaust sound.

Yeah, I'm sure they're still tweaking the 992. Too early to tell

I like the front and the throwback straight lines around the hood.

hate that rear. The song looks odd and I keep seeing this.

The front reminds me of the 993.

Front and rear flares look just right to me. Glad they didn't mess up the 991 shape.

Front hood creases are like the 991R. Nice gesture to tradition, and a change from the smooth expanded of the 991. Perhaps they stiffen a carbon fiber hood here too.

Looks like we had the same thought on the look there.... look back at the photo in my post #119: https://rennlist.com/forums/991/9734...l#post13931216
