    Yes ;)

    So how did the second lady get the photo from the first lady

    The first lady was related to the second lady but the second lady didn't get in trouble because she didn't take the photo, she wasn't a Porsche employee (apparently just some sort of trainee at a local dealer) and also didn't realize what happens if she posts this on social mediaSmiley

    The culprit was the one taking the photo...she was actually a Porsche employee and should have known better.

    Re: 992

    Any idea as to why the prototype car is bright yellow?  They're usually black to hide all the details.

    Cars are camouflaged but this doesn't mean the car color is actually black.

    Also, some cars are needed for photo shoots...

    This is all intentional. "Planned spy shots"; an oxymoron.

    btw the helpers are wearing the new Porsche uniforms. They are switching to red shirt and black pants this summer (used to be grey shirt with red pants). It's part of their restructuring.

    Re: 992

    The other useful function of these intentional spy shot releases is the same as that of prototypes at car shows: to prepare the buying public to a new look. We all had this reaction where, upon a new model's release, we recoil and immediately think "They ruined it!" Only to start liking it after it grows on us, a few months (or a year) later. So this is part of "socializing" the new look or the very different design language, prior to launch, so the initial uptake will be solid (the worst thing is for data to start coming in showing that a new model is not selling well; see, e.g., the new Honda Accord in the US.) 

    Is it any surprise that these leaks of the yellow 911 are rear shots? It is the rear that is radically different from the current models...

    Again...manufacturers do not leak shots of non-camouflaged cars, these are usually spy shots. It is also no secret that Porsche and other manufacturers invite car journalists for the final tests of specific models but these cars are camouflaged and the journalists have to sign a NDA, so they don't tell stuff they aren't supposed to tell (or show).

    There is a certain "mule" policy in effect at VW Group for example, it defines also who gets to drive these cars, etc.

    Guess nobody at Porsche know that on the original Star Trek if you wore a red shirt a horiible fate would befall you before the first commercial!
