No notch in new iphone, enough ppl complained about it yet bought it as well. But overall sales were down, it was not considered a success.

we are in a good slot, we have the option to wait for 992 or buy a 991.2...in few months 992 will be the only option and it will do just fine.

The aero doesnít make sense for a GT car which is usually always part of the test mules for obvious reasons. Maybe this is a GT3 Touring mule or new variant like the 911R but I also wouldnít expect any new variants until all the basic models have been launched.

I think the clam-shell spoiler looks pretty good here.

Oh, were iPhone X sales for the year since it appeared were a huge failure? Apple stock tanked too, right? Is that why all the new iPhones and most of the competitors have notches now?

Sales were up 2.9% year to year. It was suppose to be a greater success.

there is more to apple stock than just iphone.

people buy what ever they want.

Masarati still sells cars, you don’t always get what you pay for and sometimes it doesn’t matter.

lets get back to the 992.....it will be a success like all 911s and there will always be people on either side of the fence

What if the 992 has an awesome Ducktail addon. That way, all the clam shell annoyances will go away.

Lets wait for the official release. I really want to see the new interior. I need proper pdk stick. I never liked the paddles. And they should also make cars with manual transmission.

Not to derail this thread, but my 130%+ return on my AAPL stock and record breaking quarter after quarter says otherwise... and iPhone has accounted for upwards of 70% of Apple's entire revenue.

As a $1 trillion+ market cap company, I think the notch is doing just OK. Everyone copies them anyway, so expect to see every new Android/clone with it. I've already seen a bunch.

But agreed the 992 will be a success for sure - these controversial nit-picky details will be forgotten about when people drive it.

Then view some old clips of 911 on Nurburgring.
Maybe this is the hybrid version with all the electric stuff under the front panels, we saw earlier on other photos? More weight at the front...?

I donít see the comparison. That is a true wing that retracts (similar to a Turbo). The Carrera clam spoiler is basically hinged and looks very different.

For a guy with your username you'd think you'd have a keener eye for *** design.

Nah, 200,000 years of refinement beats any design.
