They still come with the same POS seats, poor interior ergonomics, poor adjustment range for seats and mirrors, etc.

They are still stupidly stiff on the road except for places like Southern CA that don't have seasons colder than 'warm' where pot holes are only known in legends or things that happen to poor folk.


Preach it Brother Archi!

That said, I'd take the V8 in that RS5 I had over any Porsche motor I've ever had the pleasure to have driven. Squeeze that motor into a better package and give it Porsche software and you'd have an epic car.

Yeah I'm guilty here for contributing to the nonsense. I will refrain from any further responses to the comments here since this is clearly the wrong thread and wrong place seeing how 50% of the comments have zero seat time in the vehicle they are offering a comparison opinion on lmfao!

Back to the 992

Hybrid is definitely coming as it's been noted.

Different grill design here around Cyclops ACC eye.

Thanks for pics. Squires always good for the win.
Are you going to get any one of 992? Or any 991.2 GT models? I’m waiting to see the 992 at LA auto show and go from there.

Nothing planned now. Waiting to see how it all shakes out with 992. Taking on a new work project which will require lots travel and keep me busy next 2 years, so no hurry.

Following the soap opera here will be fun.

Any guesses what the "LAUNCH COLOR" will be???

Yellow seems to be popping up a lot.

They will have some new colors as well. Will be interesting. Black, Silver, and White are a given

Macan's new Mamba Green Metallic color made to the new Panamera;

Will it be selectable with the new 911?

It's a fresh color in standard external color price!

Maybe not so fresh to the world; Bentley and AMG GT and all the high performers have had greens as launching colors 3-4 years ago.

But definitely fresh for recent Porsches

Who cares if it's the same colour as on an Audi? The more colour choice the better. Porsche could adopt some of the amazing looking ones from VW also while they're at it.

The wild colors don't look good on the standard cars, only the GTs and the TTS. Case in point, how dopey that Macan and Panamera look in Mamba Green. Even LO looks bad on the main line Carreras and Caymans. The car has to have some aggressive/wild going for it before you throw the look-at-me-color on it. Throwing a wild color on a standard vehicle just looks mismatched. It would be like Brooks Brothers doing a shiny green suit.

Think Miami Blue will be retired? I hope not because I'm digging that color. They just showed off a lot of pictures of the new the new Macan in Miami Blue and it looked pretty good to me. I saw a Macan on the road the other day in Sapphire Blue Metallic and it looked amazing. But I'm pretty biased and love blues on cars.

Hope so. Not a fan of the color. Want a better bright blue. Bring back Aqua.
