Nice looking car. I have a few nits, like the rear hips being too wide (especially for a daily driver), but overall still a nice looking car. Still would have trouble believing those brake lights...

I agree. Although I still prefer the 991, I like the 992 as well and think it will be a great car. It's still a 911, even if it's a bit homogenized.

Aside from a problematic weight gain, I could see hybrid power being a good thing.
