Looks like another rendering/artist’s impression, rather than the finished article.

The rear shape looks off from this angle. Those rims kick *** though.

Although, the rear-lights are exactly one-to-one Panamera like - which is a loss of identity for the 911, even if the design is still ok.

hope that the tape is still hiding something special!
Porsche now makes a two door Panamera

And it's going to be a great car

Love it.


It's from the last gen V12 Vantage S. They de-automated their single clutch automatic; the resulting dogleg pattern gives enthusiasts semierotic E30 M3 flashbacks.

Fixed it.

I sniffed around V12 Vantage S MTs not too long after getting my 991 Turbo. ADM on them made GT3 ADMs look like spare change.

The 6-speed non-Ss are reasonable used. IMO, the best looking AM evAr.

Oh wait. This is about the 992...

CHMSL still looks like a bloody booger landed on the rear grill after being flung out of the side window of a passing semi by the Zombie driver littering the remains of his last meal.

Only the cyclops eye of the ‘86 Cabs was worse.

I try to find stylistic qualities but the more it reveals ... :/ I expected a lot from this generation. May be too much
maybe with a dark color it will be fine. But the red does not suit at all

More views are at:

https://www.motor1.com/news/264089/2...d-undisguised/

There seems to be some disguise tape on both cars: head lights, tail lights and section connecting between them, center section of the the front and rear bumper caps, and third brake light on the engine cover. It would be neat if the third brake light is a couple of illuminating ribs rather than the elongated "blister".

It still looks more like a slightly evolved 991 than anything else. I expect significant mechanical changes giving new levels of performance. I can imagine that as many people who don't care about the mechanical changes will feel it has changed too much as will feel that it has stayed too much the same. I'm guessing from the red calipers and exhaust pipes that both cars are Carrera S and one has a sport exhaust.

Expect to see them on track at Rennsport in Monterey in a few weeks. The 991.2 showed up there last time ahead of "official" reveals.

I think it's looking great. I am drawn to it more in the darker colors I've seen though
