A big one. Still kind of luxury car esque though.

The sound was hideous. Most of the noise was tire noise. Not the case back in the NA days. Porsche needs to answer up with improved exhaust on the Turbo cars. Totally sucks.

Your never really going to get a true representation of the exhaust knot from a video ,,,especially if it has been filmed from most likely a phone . The current 991.2 3.0 TT cars have a pretty good sound to them and I would expect a similar if not the same exhaust knot from the 992 ..
There are all so many aftermarket exhaust available for those who want a little more volume for the current 991.2 ,,,similar system will be available for the 992 if not before but shortly after its release ..

Looks like the first-string designers were all on vacation when they drew that back end.

Interesting. And Porsche clearly want this car to be seen. No way in a million years is that third/middle brake light the finished article though

Tons of disguise still on the rear of that car.

Yeah that’s not the real third brake light. You guys notice that big empty long plastic thing in middle of the engine cover vents?

Looks like black tape holding it all together. Very strategic leak on their part.

"looks like a Lexus" "sounds like a Lexus" Maybe I need new eyes and ears but it doesn't look or sound like a Lexus to me...

I couldn’t care less about the extra HP, but the “significant advancements in structural engineering” highly interests me. Whatever it actually may mean.

One thing that’s cool for the 991, is that it will be the last fully Porsche developed bespoke 911 chassis, rear engine from the ground up.
