The cars look OK - they were strapped down.

my thoughts exactly

Looks like a C4 based on the lights.

Integration of the pipes looks different - extending more into the actual bumper. Has an r8 look to it.

Umm. No. Artic- and Desert-conditions testing has been going on for many decades. It has nothing to do with regulation and everything to do with engineering.

Looks like a higher front wheel arch has been adopted. Maybe 21 " tires? Also, yet another new door handle.

Just for the heck of it, I tried to take a photo of my 991.1 C4S wide body at the exact same distance and vertical/horizontal angle as the spy photo. There may be some differences that can be accounted for by different lenses. The lines you see are completely horizontal, I used them at first to help align the images but then I left them in as reference points to help compare the images.

Even if some of the differences could be explained by differences in the lenses used and slight differences in camera positioning, I can make out a few things that seem to be quite different that I don't think can be explained that way. Another thing to note is that my car has sport PASM and 5mm spacers.

What do you guys see? Unfortunately my photo does have the clear contrast of the spy photo due to different environments, but I did try to brighten it up some to help.

^^ The fenders look like they flare out more on the front and rear. The new model is supposed to be slightly wider.

Very interesting comparison. The roof line looks lower, and the side windows definitely smaller.

If my eyes don't deceive me, I think the door side is less rounded at the top... more vertical. Maybe it is pulled in a little more and that is resulting in the fenders appearing a little more flared? Or maybe they are simply more flared. There is certainly more outward angle just above the wheel well front and rear, less rounded on the front. Also, I think the vertical lip around the wheel wells is a little broader too.

I'm trying to decide if the bottom of the door on the new car is lower or if that is just due to something about the photo angles, or if the rear of the new car is just sitting lower. The back of the front wheel well has notably more flare and appears to provide a bit more of a rock-guard effect at the bottom than before.

I've never been a fan of the modern trend towards "flat" outlines around flared fenders, at their outer edge. Looks like inelegant, non-cohesive design, compared to gently continuing the natural fender roll all the way to the lip. In the photo it appears that flat outline is even more pronounced than on 991, but it could be the different lighting and greater contrast.
