The smooshed front headlights bother me the most.

Anyway, no 992 to for me.

Thanks for posting those pics. Saw the test mule crew yesterday on the north side of GGB, going into the headlands. Wish I had gotten a closer look. I wonder if that back bumper has been finalized. It’s a bit hefty looking.

OK, test mules still around San Francisco. Testing to see how well they drive through needles and feces on the roads

Thanks for the additonal pics. I guess we will see how popular the design is after the launch and then sales numbers. From what I am seeing, I’ll keep my 991.

One more note. Right now we have a 17’ 911 and 17’ BMW X3. Our plan was to trade the X3 in a few years for a Cayenne, but there is no way I want two vehicles that look similar from the rear end. I wonder how many people they will deter from buying an additional Porsche.

STG you hit the nail on the head when you mentioned that they brought in other feathers from the other models. This is lacking the classic 911 attractiveness.. Even if it drives amazing I will not buy an expensive car if when I walk away I don't turn back to check it out because it looks so fine. This 992 is looking weak for now. Normally I would not be negative. I am a very positive person but I am disappointed in both the rear look and the front look. The profile looks decent except the mirrors. The sound on the above video was muted and feminine, totally unmanly. Go listen to a Corvette or Jaguar, cheaper costing cars but sound so much better than our beloved 911. It is sad to me.
I have owned a 911 or two every year since 1978; that's 30 years of driving 911s and now I am seriously thinking of keeping my 991.1 GTS Cab for a long time. Obviously we need to wait and see the car in person before we pass judgment. The exhaust sound, if they improved on it, could sway most of us to go for it but the examples so far have been more like VW Motors is building our 911.

...or even 40 years of driving 911s. Doesn’t time fly...!!

Headlights have about the same proportions and orientation as 991. Not any more squashed or flattened.

I dont why why this would bother anyone..stick on PDK and auto cars are ornamental anyway.. you have paddles..but then again I have only had manual cars and don’t see the need for giant stick like in my wife’s Macan

Spot on Captainkirk. I've been thinking for weeks about where I've seen that design before, and your remarks triggered it. A Braun shaver !

Did they hire non 911 enthusiasts into the company or hire hipsters and they decided to put a beard trimmer.

Awesome vid, capture entire fleet of upcoming Porsche models. Is that a GT4 and a Boxster Spyder I’m seeing?
