Someone came up with some possible renderings of what the 992 might look like.

Keep in mind ... SPECULATIVE RENDERINGS

If true, doesn't look bad at all.

I think the back looks great, the front not so much.

The Porsche logo and rear brake light are probably pretty close. I'm guessing the front fenders will be wider and exhaust will probably sit higher on the rear bumper.

Prefer the rounded hood on the 991.

Same. Rear would be a big improvement. Front, no. Just no.

I not sure why but that 918 front bumper don't work that well on this 992 rendering.

But overall, I like it.

Whoever did this rendering should go work for the Porsche design team. This looks much better than the spy pics.

Looks good. One thing he got wrong, though, is door handles. On the actual spy shots they appear to have a flat design.

I like the renderings.
Here is a ground-breaking announcement that is likely to break the interwebz: no drastic changes to the overall shape of the chassis. Now let us argue over how many different ways Porsche can bend the frunk sheet metal.

Loving the 20" RS Spyder design wheels!

My money is on the exhaust moving up a bit compared to 991.

They might want the space to play with the diffuser. I think the 911RSR with the engine and transmission swapped ("mid-engine") showed that they take this seriously. They have to compete with mid-engine cars that already have the rear underbody space to work with.

Obviously they won't do the transmission/engine swap on the general 911. Yet. And big wings aren't popular with any of the vendors in the space, for the non-premium track variants.

Not sure whether a Panamera style folding wing would find space in a 911. Even if it did, you'd want the transmission in the back, going back to the same problem. So they are going for the wider version of the traditional 911 flap, which I don't think is enough to compete with mid-engine cars that have diffuser caves you have to check for sleeping coyotes before you start the car.

In addition to the relocated exhaust, vertical porsche rear badging and the full-width wing - it appears the rear air intakes have been moved up to the base of the rear window, eliminating the body colour panel that separated them in the .1 and .2

It's an interesting feature and coupled with the sunroof in glass provides a long swath of black before the now wider rear panel/spoiler...

But that rear spoiler when raised really has an open can look...
