The 992 is obviously a beefed out 991, but man does the 991 look absolutely flawlessly fluid in its architecture and proportions. No gimmicks whatsoever, they just designed it to be holistically...

Forward looking? A car that's looked the same for 60 years, has a rear engine and prioritizes perfecting heritage rather than radically transforming it? Not to mention the fact that the 992 will look...

You're right on many points. But the glasshouse is DEFINITELY different. The windshield might be identical, but the side greenhouse albeit an identical shape to the 991, is slightly smaller. You'll...

That is a cool image, but also highlights how much closer to that original design our 991 interiors are.

WHAT?! Did they really downgrade the standard alcantara headliner on the 991 to the cheaper cloth (still nice, but no alcantara) used on the lower Porsche models??

I'm also starting to wonder if...

How has Porsche allowed some videos to state it has an extended wheelbase, while some state it doesn't? Quality control not on point.

Based on official figures, the new 911 DOES NOT have a longer...

It definitely has. It's slightly more slit/vertically narrow.



Good eye. Don't like the new "generic boxy" new mirrors. Porsche parts should always be stylized, and IMO appropriately round,...

Demuro is nuts if he thinks the difference between 991 and 992 is more than 997 and 991. The 991 launched an entire new sheetmetal form and architecture. The 992 is a very close continuation to the...

The war was lost the second the Model S came out. One of the reasons why "classical" and more visceral elements like N/A are increasingly important to me, is because I've accepted that emotion is the...

The lights will be 2 of the “fins” and they’ll protrude out a bit.



Looks SO MUCH BETTER AND MORE COHESIVE with the shutline going straight across.

A lot of that heaviness comes from the extra narrow glasshouse. Having seen the 992 in person, I think the 991's glasshouse looks better. 911's should never have "bunker" greenhouses, it defeats the...
