    Re: 992 (Next 911 generation 2018/2019)

    Porsche is all about Form follows function:

    - so, tell me, why would you need a little shifter at all? It has not function, just takes a lot of space. The paddles are enough and the gear selection could be done in smarter ways

    - Cupholder - essential I would say. But hey - try to get your cup out behind your rear elbow? And also - why only one? Put two inside. At least that hole seems to be more reliable and stable as that shaky thing they had since the 997.

    - and talking about form follow function, hopefully they stop implementing those sensor buttons from the Panamera, etc You can't sense what the button is good for, nor where it is at all. 

     


    Re: 992 (Next 911 generation 2018/2019)

    I wonder why they don't do something modular when it comes to contentious stuff like cup-holders - like they used to with cassette storage etc.  Just make it a zero-cost option: either a little, elegant storage bin - or, if you're that way inclined, a holder for your Big Gulp angryindecision  Just let the customer decide?

    That said, I always found those pop-out cup holders a bit useless.  Tried to put an e.g. Sprite bottle in once but it flopped from side to side alarmingly.  Only real use I found was for holding the radio Porsche give you on driving events.  Maybe they work for espressos..

    On my humble C30, there is a double cupholder in the centre console.
    Take the cupholder frame out, and you end up with a big compartment that can be closed off with a shutter... just sayin'  Smiley-shark.gif Smiley

    Re: 992 (Next 911 generation 2018/2019)

    I don't hold drinks in the car but at least these retractable ones come in handy for those occasions that I need my phone handy like when streaming audio to the PCM via bluetooth (otherwise I keep my phone in my pocket or door pocket and the cupholder hidden from view)... if they were on the rear of the centre console then not even useful for that.

    Car right now do not offer two things that would be hugely helpful:

    1) a place to put your phone and use it as easily as the built in screen

    2) Waze in CarPlay

    Re: 992 (Next 911 generation 2018/2019)

    There is only one problem: There isn't supposed to be a manual option for the 992.  Unless they changed this again, so they can charge for PDK. angry

    There's nothing attractive in this design. It's plain ugly.

    If you like the new Panamera/Cayenne interior, you will like the new 992 interior as well.

    Not at all, is pretty tight, I guess the phone's dimensions locks right, when I tighten the ring around it, it gets pretty secure. 

    Also it's convenient that the glovebox is right in front so I have a flat USB cable with which I can plug into the power outlet inside the glovebox and close it with the cable hanging out, and since the cable is flat it doesn't get punched by the glovebox door. This way I can also charge the phone if I would need to.

    I hate phone supports in a car, I'd rather have my phone in my pocket that have any type of phone holder even if removable, so this solution does away with that.

    Keep in mind the 992 GT3 4.0 Touring and 992 R will both have a manual gearbox... Smiley


    Re: 992 (Next 911 generation 2018/2019)

    If we didn't know it was from a 992, there isn't much indication that is a sportscar's cabin... maybe it's because of all the apparatus, cables and whatnotw all over the place...

    Re: 992 (Next 911 generation 2018/2019)

    That new dash design looks like it was intended as a return to the dash of the original model. Interesting to see that most of the functions on the centre console retain physical buttons as opposed to the haptic feedback type in the Panamera kiss The steering wheel also looks to be a new design with a thin solid lower spoke. The design of the column stalk for the wipers rules out a switch to column mounted paddle shifters for the PDK variant as it bends too far towards the back of the wheel for there to be space fr them.

    3 Months Spy Spics Diferences... Note - The most recent photo is from the a Cabrio. You can see the rooftop operation button bellow the shifter.

    Re: 992 (Next 911 generation 2018/2019)

    It’s certainly an interesting departure, and has plenty of cues from the past - brings back memories of my 964 and 993. This must be intentional - the sports car market must be a shrinking one. I wonder if we start to see the same changes that happened in the motorbike market - where the appeal shifted from cutting edge superbikes to models which evoke fond memories of youth smiley

    You'd think they improved the interior with getting rid of the hideous PDK shifter, but then they cock it up with that cup holder. I'm not sure what looks worse yes

    No Offense....I know that little details matter but.... really....the shifter and the freaking cupholder?

    Dont remember the Ferrari guys complaining about the Ferrari 360 F1 Gear Lever AkA Gate Lever 16th Century Castle!!!

    I also dont remember people complaining about the 918 Spyder shifter lever either (in the 992 it´s the same thing as the 918 spyder, except it´s located in the center console).

    Probably not that many people are concerned with 918 ergonomics indecision. I sat in one once and never noticed it!

    Think we are just passing time debating this stuff.
