It's a totally different wheel. A new "updated" Carrera S.

Similar to the clown wheels they’re offering on the ST.

When I first saw the 991 interior it looked cramped and busy with its high console and row of buttons, but it turned out to be less obtrusive and more functional than the previous generation.

I have have seen nothing that suggests the 992 is a shrunken Panamera (the 3/4 inch longer front cap doesn't equal that) or takes Audi design cues in its interior because it has more electrics.

The negativism would be baffling were this not a Porsche internet forum.
Of course there is negativism , look at this thing it has some serious issues right there in front you in these photos..... You've got a group of passionate enthusiasts smart enough to see through all this crap Porsche thinks they can get away with. Clearly, I'm not one to go blindly cheering ON something just because " it's a Porsche and everything they do is great" . This car , in reality, couldn't be further from that belief.

Agree.....entire rear end spoiler which is different approach in design and functionality looks like it goes on another brand of car or is an add on aftermarket part.........

Fixed regular GT3 spoilers are now looking good even for the base models............must be cheaper to execute this new spoiler.........more profits..........and it conforms with Panamera design functionality

Basically, there are minor changes with light design in both front and rear.............. connecting the rear lights not as well executed as 996 C4S or 993.................make rear end look like it needs a diet and not that distinctive anymore..........

993 and 991 were design hits..........looks like we have the 964 or 996 upon us......skipping generations for good designs it seems.......

I was driving the streets of Los Angeles the other day when I came upon what I thought was a 992 mule, but it wasn't. It was the new Panamera. Oops. Yes, they are distinguishable but the exterior design differences between the two models have narrowed markedly. I agree with those who think we should wait for the final product before passing judgement on the 992 but I also am a firm believer that newer is not always better and that Porsche is completely capable of an interior and exterior misfire with the 992. "New Coke" - how did that turn out? One of the stupidest business decisions of the 20th century. I am in no way saying the 992 will be Porsche's "New Coke" moment. My point being that newer is not always better. Just ask the executives at Coca-Cola.

Slc4s - Give me some slack, I live in Los Angeles, the capital of drama! Drama, no drama, whatever, that was my observation. Here are two pictures, one of the new Panamera and one of the 992. Perhaps you can see why, at first glance, I may have thought I was seeing a 992 test mule (which have been spotted in LA, by the way) rather than what it actually was. There are definitely similarities between the two. In fact, I am a big fan of the new Panamera's looks. A big improvement from the previous generation. Just not a fan of the homogenization I am seeing between the 911 and the Panamera.

Right, cuz with the spoiler deployed on a 991 it's truly a thing of beauty. [insert snark here]

Looks way better than the clam. The 991 spoiler stops at the down line without wrapping around like the clam. The 992 Canamera spoiler just looks full retard.

991. Turbo spoilers might be the last of the most practical and best eye appealing of the road going non GT cars. You can see out the back and it flows better with the lines of the overall design..and the downforce is still there..

It really does look like a Panamera coupe.

having seen the testers around LA I'm sticking to my guns that in person people will feel very differently. Its a very subtle change from the 991.
