Am I the only one who doesn't like the trend towards having that black bar down the middle of the back with the PORSCHE logo on it? I didn't like it on the 718, and I don't like it here.

That's awful. Who signed off on that ****? Do they think the "aspirated or nothing" talebans who scorn the turbos are going to be seduced by some fake crap like that?

We need Eduardo from Scottsdale or someone else with that level of juice in Stuttgart to pick up the phone and yell at them.

They are making the interior into an IPad. I like mechanical and tactile not electrical.

I was thinking Lamborghini Huracan-ish rear end.
All VW products in the end, right?

It's just sad how bad they made 992 look. I mean they had 7 years to redesign and they come up with this? The front is just atrocious. The once fabled rear is now just weird.

Interior is 2 steps backward.

But i'm sure it will out-sell 991.

I have to say, I have never seen a bunch of men whine so much and so loudly anywhere. Ever. And I was in the Navy... even out on a 7 1/2 month cruise there was less whining about stuff. And that whining, at least, was about stuff that mattered.

All these cupholder whines, tailpipe, VW took over, etc etc etc. You guys would fit in with all these articles popping up about bridezillas.

Holy crap.

I guess nobody is allowed to have an opinion unless it's stroking the Porsche crest.

Not sure I'd wanna be on a 7.5 month cruise with a bunch of dudes, but I think we have a very active group on RL here who have a lot of passion and knowledge about their hobby. Take away some of the few useless posts, there are some real valuable comments and critiques here.

I've seen product or automobile releases where you have great excitement and enthusiasm to buy. I think it's pretty telling here the comments that have been made so far.

There's no doubt that Porsche is growing and has aggressive future plans. Obviously product strategy, placement, marketing, and design will also reflect those plans. How well they balance that, will be interesting to watch.

Hail Navy chief, patting on the shoulder comes with the territory. In this case, Porsche deserves what is coming.
