Right. Because you step on a bee means you might as well take a bat to the nearest bee hive. Those record storms we’ve been having every year lately are so random.

So do you buy credits to offset your flights?

Can't say you're wrong, the 911 is a direct descendant of the beetle, although the one in your pic has the engine in the wrong end.

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.
That's not Hybrid/Batteries, that's data acquisition instrumentation for development.

Not sure what that even means or how it relates, but I keep the cats on my car and happen to not fly all that often.

^^^ Dashboard looks very reminiscent of my 2017 Panamera 4.

I’d be willing to bet the 992 styling is intended to be a middle point on the road to a much more futurustic looking car complete with a hybrid power train. Porsche is changing the look across the model lineup to give it a more modern signature and I think these models are likely just a waypoint on a much bigger transition. Makes me sad on one hand, but such is life. Change is the only constant.
Definitely. The 992 is the bridge to the new styling direction being introduced / formalized with the Taycan. In reality, the Panamera was, then the Cayenne, now the 911, and the Macan facelift to an extent. The next generation after those will strongly resemble whatever the Taycan looks like.

Yes, but with some definite improvements. Which were needed. While the Panamera dash is slick and well rendered, I don't think it's very functional, compared to Audi, BMW or Merc.

Perhaps the Norelco is an underhanded bid to nudge people into manuals.

I don't like the hard break and the "corner" where the screen ends and the gauges begin,....doesn't flow right, looks pretty unfinished.
