Don't know why there's been so much fuss over the light bar - comparing it to Lincolns, Kias, etc. It's not a new thing on a 911. I've got one, and I love it.

Yes, this is what I pointed out in an earlier post:-) In my opinion, I'm not convinced that the final car will have 2 "third brake lights". It seems a little much:-)

I was watching a Jay Leno's Garage rerun last night from 2016 with Jerry Seinfeld as a guest. They were showing off three of Seinfeld's 356s and eventually took a drive in the mountains in Jerry's (late 50's IIRC) Speedster. As they're discussing why Porsche's are awesome cars, Jerry comments about the minimalistic beauty and how there aren't any extraneous lines or busy-ness to the design. I don't think Jerry would feel the same about that 992 design.

We've already seen the car with less camouflage (but another exhaust system). Looks fine by me...

The back end of the car reminds me of the kid from Deliverance. Yes, I’m an interesting subject on a Rorschach test

I also don't my 911 to look like a small Panamera - and it's beginning to feel like the 911, Panamera and Macan are all converging. The 911 should be special and distinct..

Congratulations, I recently did the same.

Don't have it yet - I think it's a Dec build - so maybe Feb or March?

Now the waiting begins! My last Porsche order was ~ 3 ½ months & looks like this one is ~ 5 months. I'm hoping it ends up being 4 or 4 ½.

That actually looks fantastic in white. And i'm sure the third brake light will be revised before the full reveal.
This sold me. I'm holding off on 991.

What model do you guys think that is?

definitely don’t want the 911 merging with Macan/panamera...
