    Photoshop... No, I don't know how the final car is going to look, so I cannot say if it is accurate. Smiley

    Re: OFFICIAL: The new Porsche 992 – a design icon and high-tech sports car

    I went for a first spec session today on a C2S. Surprisingly even to myself I ended up with Aventurine Green Smiley in the spirit of trying something different . Truffle Brown interior with crayon stitiching.

    I had not appreciated previously but the rear sport design does have the positive of raising the position of the rear number plate and therefore reducing the bulk of the rear. This may (only) just outweigh the silly painted "fins" that the sport design gives at the rear. Front sports design is essential owing to the sea of black plastic there.

    What do people feel about PASM? I ticked just about every other box (PDCC, RWS, Ceramics, 18 way seats, Burmester) apart from sports exhaust. @Gnil did the car you drove have PASM?


    Re: OFFICIAL: The new Porsche 992 – a design icon and high-tech sports car

    Personally, unless you drive very aggressively, I think PASM is unnecessary.  Congratulations on a wonderful combination – very old-school British.


    Re: OFFICIAL: The new Porsche 992 – a design icon and high-tech sports car

    The green looks totally different IRL, mind you...

    I actually don't know . Usually the test cars are pretty loaded . I will ask . It had for sure PDCC and RWS and Power Plus steering .

    An Italian owner has had his PPF installer wrap the 3rd brake light with gloss black vinyl to get rid of the red plastic surround. It's a pity Porsche didn't design it like this from the start as it looks much more integrated.

    @Crayphile : Yes, the car had PASM . It was firm, but not uncomfortable at all .  Even when activating PDCC , over bumpy parts of the roads, I did not even realize I had it on , as the car did not ' jump' . The suspensions absorb , in a from manner, all inequalities . 

    But, our roads are not too bad, even when bumpy . For extra confort in roads with pot holes  ,  no PASM is maybe better ?

    Thanks. From the Porsche website:

    Depending on the road conditions and the driving mode, the upgraded Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) actively and continuously controls the damping force for each individual wheel. The result: reduced body movement and thus more comfort with increased dynamism. The PASM sports suspension, lowered by 10mm, is available as an option, making the new 911 even more neutral and balanced when it’s on the road.

    So it seems that PASM is on the base car - which was my understanding. So the optional extra is the lowering by 10mm.


    Re: OFFICIAL: The new Porsche 992 – a design icon and high-tech sports car

    Yes, that must be it . And reading the above text, says exactly what I was feeling . I could feel each different wheel/suspension working independently to absorb the inequalities of the road .  

     upgraded Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) actively and continuously controls the damping force for each individual wheel. The result: reduced body movement and thus more comfort with increased dynamism. 

    SPASM should make the car firmer .

    I love the color on this car. Would probably do it the other way round though; the standard front and the aerokit rear...
    Don't mind the standard front too much and kinda dislike the diagonal lines in the aerokit front.
    Don't like the fins in the aerokit rear, but at least it raises the number plate...

    Here is the video of the car above.  Shows the color in different light condition.  Like the color, cool color for GT3 touring:

    More convinced than ever on the colour choice. He has the wrong wheels and no ceramics though. Sports exhaust looks like a poor man's GT2RS  - hang on that's me Smiley.

    I like the color. Conservative and elegant. 

    What’s with all the theatrics? It’s a run of the mill Porsche. yes

    I'm waiting for the targa but will likely go for Aventurine or PTS with something like Oak Green metallic.

    Agree, the right choice for the 992, will look brilliant. Agree on the sports exhaust, the 4 pipes look better and apparently it's silent outside anyway, with or without.

    Will be worth the wait. Plus I am sure more options will be available by then.


    Re: OFFICIAL: The new Porsche 992 – a design icon and high-tech sports car

    Aventurine is a classy and subtle color from the 993 range kiss

    Sometimes it looks gray and only in certain light does the green become obvious.
