What I do know, with almost complete certainty, is that if you don't paint them they will look like absolute sh*# after a short time by fading / discoloring or ending up with wax marks along the edges. So basically you'll be dammed if you do , dammed if you don't thanks for another brilliant call on this one Porsche!
That would only be the case if someone doesn't properly take care of them and detail their car the right way. A properly detailed car would protect the plastic and wouldn't leave wax marks on the plastic.

Apparently they don't want us to get comfortable with the hood/bumper lines/gaps either way. I actually don't mind it on the red car but here you can see it both ways side by side: https://jalopnik.com/porsches-still-...911-1829491823

Red one looks good. And white calipers as recently introduced on the new Cayenne.

I love how many people are slagging Porsche over cheap plastic on a test mule... because I'm sure that's exactly what it'll look like when it's produced.

Are there still NO pics of a 991 next to a 992? That’s when the real truth comes out.

Agreed. It looks and looked very jarring on the car I saw in person. Takes too much of your focus rendering it fairly clunky.

I read somewhere 10k, but is that typical?

I wonder if 991.1 vs 991.2 jump in performance is similar- 991.2 base acceleration specs are similar to the 991.1 GTS ( I know turbos vs NA) I wonder what the 992 base will jump to 991.2 S acceleration specs?
Not sure, but with turbos it’ll be easier for them to tune more speed. A base being faster than the previous GTS seems par for the course. The 991.1 base threw up better numbers than the 997.2 GTS in several magazines that tested both.

But I don't want that little shaver in the 992 so staying with the 991.2.
Hopefully by the time the 992.2 rolls around they will have put the PDK stick back into the car.
Ouch, that sucks but thankfully the car protected you! Any photos? Just curious in studying how the car performed.

Well, being that Ferrari, Porsche and Tesla are some of the most valuable car brands, it certainly isn’t “mass sales at all costs.” Boutique companies that generate aspirational value via exclusivity which leads to high margins which leads to reinvestment into products to ensure they maintain dominance in enthusiast-oriented fields, has proven rewarding nearly every time, across industries. It’s what made Porsche who they are. If they sold hundreds of thousands of 4 doors in the 90’s, they’d be any other bloated boring appliance brand today.

Separately, and not to be too blunt, but I think those of you ordering new 991.2’s now may very well be setting yourself for upset, especially considering the investment you’re making. 991.1 owners such as myself have reason to cling to our cars regardless of how much we may like the 992, if keeping an N/A with the tactile shifter is that important (it is to me, so far). But the 992 we all know will look good when it’s out, and will simply be a dialed up 992 in drivetrain and performance and character. Just IMO.

It's time to start selling your Tesla shares, and shorting on the stock. They have peaked already. They will not be in business as a car company in 10 years. Let's not use them in the same sentence with Ferrari and Porsche again. Those brands are profitable, too.

Lol. Yeah, how’d that work out for GM and Chrysler? Those bailouts in 2007 beg to differ. Ferrari’s current market cap is $25B and Ford’s is $35B. Ferrari snaps their fingers, turn out one SUV, and inevitably fly past Ford’s value without breaking a sweat. All whilst selling less cars in a year than Ford does in a day.

If Porsche didn’t create such cachet by way of being an exclusive and boutique brand, they wouldn’t have been able to cash in on said enthusiast value to the tune of mainstream customers throwing money hand over first just to get something “practical” with the Porsche crest on it.
