Too many lines going in too many directions in the rear. Just doesn't work for my eyes. To me, the 992 backside is not visually harmonious as it was in past generations.

That one is already black, so... Look closer to the yellow one, around the brake light.

From some angles that yellow car looks great, and from others it looks like a 350z.

Those pics of the yellow car perfectly show all that is wrong with the design of this car from every angle. That color just accentuates all the bad in the exterior styling.

Oxford green is a BMW color. That picture looks 99% like Moss Green from the 80s Porsches, although now they'll probably call it something else.

Edit: actually it doesn't. More like Forest Green.

Nicely done - I'd buy that.

But can you make them look like piano keys?

The third brake light looks good in the latest pic. I'd like to see a view of the 992 with a 991 or a person standing next to it in order to get a proper perspective.

Can't wait to see this car in person. Am really beginning to winder whether the fender flares both front and back will look great, or if they are actually now too large.

I'll say it again.. That yellow 992 looks like a mouse.

Although it looks like a 2-door Panamera, I like it. I'll probably get one when the 992.2 comes out.

I hope they don't make the 992 drive like the current gen panamera.
c and d just did an article on how numb the driving experience has been.
puts up good numbers, but the car is no longer connected to the driver it seems.

Problem is,....that is the way the driving world is heading. The group of real driving enthusiasts that want a connected feeling is slowly melting away, replaced by people that are more concerned with SUVs, gadgetry, and where can I plug it in. The 911 has held true to most of its ideology over the years, although many things have changed. I think the 992 will be the same, but I can sure see the pressure mounting at an accelerated pace for it to be less of a stand-out, and more of a family member.

I'm sure that standouts won't die out, just as there are still horse breeders.

They will be less numerous however.
