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
My guess is guards red and GT silver:-)

The new ''corporate'' front-end styling, with nothing but parallel, straight lines, looks un-Porsche-like to me.

I saw some beautiful Euro styled concepts - Chevy should just copy what the magazines think it should look like. Their "cutting edge" designs always look plastic and clownish, IMO. But hey, they find a lot of buyers and you can't deny the performance.

The 992 wing - wow. What can be said. But as I am thinking about ordering my next 911, I drifted over to the Audi site. Why are PDK users buying 911's when the Audi TT RS has 440 hp and 0-60 in 3.5 sec (I think, or 3.6)? Okay, I need to do some work for tomorrow.

Based on the Instagram leak, I donít think the vertical color in the center of the bumper will be there. You can tell by looking very closely that itís a vinyl wrap in those areas.





^ Im pretty sure the 911 is following this design language... which I donít love 😞

I think it will look much better once the camo is off although I am withholding my opinion until I see the final product.

I previously owned two Vettes and loved them. I've drank the Porsche Kool-Aid, though, and cannot see going back after having owned a 911. Wish I could have one of each in my garage but they would never get driven enough...

Yup. The 911 is being assimilated by the Borg and the Borg ainít pretty.

These were taken in a hotel parking lot next to my office in Golden, CO. They come here every year, as do other manufactures.

Thanks for sharing.

How recent are those pics? The cars have more camouflage on them than the recent Ďspy shotsí in circulation, including the recently photographed yellow & orange ones.

The way the slope of the car flows from the roof to the back lip just looks odd for a 911. Looks really long, without the pronounced break to the lower bumper. Looking at the red car, it looks like someone took an old VW bug and stretched it out.
