While I don't have an issue with the concept, I don't like that they went back to a 1960s style font/design with the analog tach. Just too retro and jarring against the TFT displays.

Nobody that...

Probably front axle lift; rear looks a bit high, too, so could have shipping blocks in the suspension.

If you are referring to your own opinions of design, perhaps. I am no fan of the 996, either...while I think the 996 GT3 is one of the best 911s ever made, I would never own one because I can't stand...

You missed my point. The 964 -> 993 and 996 -> 997 examples I gave are similar in transition from 991 -> 992: Wider, new interior, advertised as 'all new' but really based on the previous generation...

This isn't that. 991 -> 992 will be very much like 964 -> 993 and 996 -> 997. Some will cling to the previous generation, but the newer car is better and the majority will welcome the newer design.

I don't need to look at the pictures to know I like the 992 exterior better. ;)

With so much negativity, thought I'd put a positive spin on it...coming from somebody that has had and enjoyed long-hood, G-model, 993, and 997 generations:

That actually makes a lot of sense...4-cylinder hybrid with a retro badge. Not that I'd buy one, but I think it would do well...

I think pure EV Porsches will be on unique platforms.

Why does it “gotta be”?

Not only does it make no sense for a relatively small production vehicle to have an all-new platform after 6 model years, but it is far too soon for a Huracan replacement...
