They’re entirely different looking cars and nobody’s gonna confuse that plasticky Tron rear end with a 991.

Those pics of the yellow car perfectly show all that is wrong with the design of this car from every angle. That color just accentuates all the bad in the exterior styling.

Wow, the clam looks god awful in that video. Looks like the car’s bombing into a corner with the trunk open. And it seems they’ve managed to make the car sound even worse.

Front bumper looks weak and the front fender flares look wacky. Still not feeling this car at all.

Looks way better than the clam. The 991 spoiler stops at the down line without wrapping around like the clam. The 992 Canamera spoiler just looks full retard.
