Don't like it simply because I feel like it's a stolen idea. I'm sure I'll like it no matter what when it's released though.


As if flared fenders are somehow new..

That means "extended" shelf life to the MY2018 ones till 2019? Because in the US you will not be able to drive a 992 in October 2018, right?

You mean stolen from the 930? Porsche is definitely going retro Porsche (not retro corvette) with the wider fenders and hood lines. I like the new 992 alot!

Of course in this case, we can see the actual cut lines for the front.



I would love to work for these guys. They read these forums and are laughing their a$$s off.

Sorry, didn't mean to say stolen from the vette or any other car. Flared fenders are certainly nothing new.

The 992 front end pic is what I was referencing to with that c6/c7 front angle pic. The small fender flares look closer to that.

The BIG GULP is a bone for the US market

I hope it's accelerating hard in that photo!! Strong 4x4.

The front bumper and hood is hideous. Upside down sidemarker looks wrong because I'm so used to seeing it as it sits on current model.

Man, that hood shutlne is HARSH. Hopefully it looks more finished on the production spec.

Am I seeing a subtle air scoop at the rear c pillar (after the window)? They need all the cooling they can get for the turbos, but it’s kind of a big design change that hasn’t been noticed (I saw just one article previously muse over it).

Looks muscular, somewhat retro with a great engine - definitely looking forward to the release

Come on guys...
It's got the hood and (integrated) fender flares of a GT3RS (sans vents/grills).
And you get to have the hips of the GT3RS (again sans vents).
You get the design previously exclusively reserved for an upper echelon (best of best) model... what's not to like!?
