    I think it’s such a shame. It really baffels me, what’s wrong with individuality? Especially coming from a brand like Porsche? yes

    I don't know, maybe you should ask their Cayenne/Macan only customers? Smiley Smiley Smiley

    I don't get where is the problem. Every big company has some kind of CI in order to guarantee an equal level of "quality" everywhere in the world.

    Some kind of CI wouldn't be a problem, like for example the company logo and some exterior design elements.

    There are actually CI manuals which even indicate how the restrooms have to look, so... Smiley

    Bottom line is: It gets boring when every single dealership looks the same and they often do. What works for Apple is a different story for Porsche and sportscar manufacturers. When buying a 200k car, you don't want to have the feeling you're at McDonald's. Smiley Smiley

    Porsche should think more like Doronin from Aman. The training of the personnel and interaction with the customers is the focus, not the exterior logos, etc.

    Thanks for posting the link, Carlos kiss Interesting to know that they will use Porsche Zentrum Dortmund as a pilot for the transformation / individualisation in Germany. PZ Dortmund has a quite unique architecture to start with...

    Visited once (when I was still searching for a suitable 997GT3), really liked it. Near the airport, no?


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

    Yes, Duckie - it’s a walk from the airport kiss Come to think of it, the design reminds actually a little bit of an aircraft hangar.

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

     Saw an almost identical yellow car at Sebring last weekend. Very exciting and attractive. The front and rear bumper treatments did not bother me at all, as they are not noticeable when you’re standing and looking at the car  from a normal angle. To me the most noticeable improvement is the way the back rear glass seems to extend further down the back of the car, making it look more cohesive and modern. I was not able to see the interior, but from the pictures it is appealing to me. And with the power and handling Improvements, the 992 should be a very fine car. Congratulations on your purchase!

    Seriously guys, in your views is there anything Porsche can do right? You don’t like the 992, you don’t like the Cayenne, you don’t like the new coupe, you don’t like the Taycan, you don’t like the Macan, you don’t like cost, you don’t like the design, now you don’t like the direction of the GT program.   Guess what you really like is to bash Porsche. wink


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

    The problem is that this is coming from many Porsche diehards...


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

    Not going to get into a debate. I’ll just say that for me Porsche continues to offer a wide range of very fine performance focused vehicles to suit my changing lifestyles.  And after spending two days at Sebring, and watching Porsche GT cars perform and win at the very highest racing level, I am more than enthusiastic about the future of Porsche GT racing and street performance cars.  


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

    Ok, just to support the right side of the force - I do like the 992, the Macan and the Cayenne Coupe and regard a Panamera Turbo S eHybrid as one of the most wonderful cars that nobody actually needs. The dark side of the force however are the sounds of the 718 Caymans / Boxsters, horrible.

    Black rims are so cool. Knockout car!  Love to hear your driving impressions when you get some miles on the road...

    They do offer a range of interesting cars, however it is just a model or 2 per family...

    the facelift Macan is not very pretty compared to the original model.Smiley and this thing lacks a monster engine in it but they will not do it just to not eat sales above...

    the Cayenne range lacks the GTS which is coming soon, it will be interesting against the overpriced turbo or anaemic V6...

    the Cayenne Turbo-s will be interesting but again super over-priced...Smiley

    Cayenne coupe is interesting but Lava Orange to challenge Lambo is a joke.

    Panamera line is nicer than before, GTSs are the sweet spots.

    718 is a disaster, they will even kick the production completely out of Stuttgart, flop! GT4/Spyder will be interesting and they will sell tons of them to counterpart all other version of the boring flat 4.

    992 - well so far not enough version, huge price bump and waiting on GTs but what I can hear is ''heavier'' and this is not a good start.
