Plenty of choices out there

The 992 is looking like a modern GT style sports car - it will appeal to that type of buyer, they will be looking for a sophisticated, polished, fast super cruiser. In some markets these cars cost double to triple the prices in the US - it isn't hard to see why people paying that sort of coin want more from an interior compared to budget markets like the US, in this regard I think Porsche knows its market very well.

The 992 looks almost identical to the 991.2 - its hard to imagine the chassis is radically different.
1) Unobtanium
2) Unavailable in US
3) Not four season daily-able, dead if rear ended

Oh, and none of them have the rear engine personalty.

A gutted, harsh, base engine 911. It's not too much to ask.

Last year mass imported was 2011.

I was talking about new, configurable cars.

Shame about the Lotus - the Exige Cup 430 looks brilliant

GT4 - put some deposits down at a few different dealers - you may get a surprise

The most detailed close-ups of the upcoming car I've seen to date....in the last 3 minutes of this video.

Really hope they keep the quad pipes and rear bumper like that. Looks better than the current 2 pipe sports exhaust.

The narrow-look "OG VW Bug" middle pipe look on the .2's will about definitely be a one off. Thankfully so.

Anyone noticed the door handles popping out when the driver unlocked the car using the fob?!

Three different styles of exhaust in the video, GT2 RS-like double round, quad round and double square (loudest).

The rear valence....not digging it. Integrated trapezoids...ugh. Looks like a freaking Lexus. The twin twins look too much like an E92 M3. Meh.

So much for "they improved the exhaust sound." Those things sound like V6 Lexus sedans going around the track. Hopefully they've just highly muffled it up to "trick" us, but I have doubts....

That rear valance is totally disguised... there's probably a diffuser down there being hidden by that fake panel.

Agree that there is still some masking on the rear of car. Without knowing exactly what is underneath vs. the masked parts, the eyes can be easily deceived in making a definitive conclusion. Iĺm looking forward to seeing the car revealed. I might be surprised and want an upgrade👍
