LOL agreed!

I'm talking about the dimensions/shape.
Can't think of another 991 which has fender flares that wide in the front, only one who does is the RS.
Granted it's a separate piece and the fender has vents *hence the sans vents comment) I think it comes close to the amount it widens the front.
Same for the rear (again without vents) it looks like the same width as the RS/Turbo, except that the top is of the shoulders are round (T/RS are flattened out).

Like I said time will tel but I like what I'm seeing.

I personally canít understand the concept of a digital tach thatís meant to mimic a real tach. It doesnít look as crisp, classy and high def as the real thing, and it isnít as immediate in its movement. And not as dependable. Tech for the sake of tech (gimmicky), imo.
Agree 100%

The half lit bars in my fan speed display agree as well.

Otherwise, I like the new Panny much better than the old about everywhere else (N/A V8ís notwithstanding ).

absolutely! Just look at Phones. A year old phone feels old now. Last year 4K OLED TV's were the end all. Now its, 8K QLED. Digital technology becomes obsolete way faster than mechanical engineering. I wish my car had all analog gauges.... the one on the right is neat - or was like 10 years ago. Tech is perpetually accelerating.

I bet the digital speedo on the #1 cars will outlast the turbos on the #2 car I bet 100 bucks.

Exactly. Staring at an LCD display that launched on a 2019 car will look and work like a 3 year old iPhone in the year 2022. That's premature aging.

In fact, perfect example: My cars interior looks identical to a 2018 911, minus the steering wheel. The only thing that looks dated at all on my entire car, is the PCM screen. The MFD you mentioned is indeed cool and functional. And I remember in 2014 when I got my Macan, it looked so sharp and crisp. Now (same MFD in the 911), it's looking kind of pixelated compared to what my eyes have been acclimated to. My interior would literally look less dated with no PCM screen at all.

As for the width of the 992 (being compared to the current widebody hips), it makes sense that the C2 will be as wide as the current widebody. When the 991 launched, I remember seeing a side by side with a 997 Turbo, and the base 991 had/has wider hips.

I bought a low-miles 12YO 996 X50 Turbo in 2013. I searched for a few months because I had a definite list of things I wanted and didn't want. Among the deal killers for me was NAV screen. Back in 2002 they ran off of discs, which were of course not available nor had ever been updated. It literally caused me to walk away from one otherwise perfect Turbo. Fortunately, most of them I looked at had skipped that dubious option.

Who knows what the "nav screen" of today will be in 10 years?

I'm more interested in how it drives, most people won't care if the gauge cluster is analogue or digital. Its not a comparo between a Hyundai and a Kia.

Agreed, but there are none available to drive yet, so we have to b1tch about the gauges instead.

They look pasted on so these pics may just be a trial balloon. They do look ginormous from some angles.

Those rear fenders look insane...like the 930 turbo

Visually not much else looks different, even LED DRLs look the same as the .2

Those flares are like tape over the tail-light quarters...just disguise.

Wow... I like it!
That is exactly what i've been talking about, the 992 Carrera will be much wider than the 991 gen.
Which made me wonder how wide they's go with the Turbo 992... guess I've got my answer lol.

2 things though.
1 this is definitely a very rudimentary fender flare add-on, the real thing will look much better and probably not as wide.
2 This has the C4/S rear light bar... so either they will be adding a side intake to the C4S or this is a 4S with a vent to confuse us... or the new Turbo will have a light bar?


Regardless, I'm very excited about the 930 direction 992 styling is going in!
I'm sure the real thing will look spectacular!

Great find, thanks for posting.
