    Switzerland charges again 142k CHF with 8% GST for a 4s and Germany 118 EUR incl 19% GST - it is so ridiculously bad no matter of swiss package or not.... - so upsetting.....

    Why? Not too long ago the Fx was 1.5 and it will go back there in the future.

    I do not like the four-point braking lights.

    Same here. It looks cheap and ruins the whole appearance of the nice light strip at the back. Smiley

    I like them on the Carrera 2....but it does not work well on the 4 with the strip IMO.


    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 (facelift) Carrera 4 and Carrera 4S

    The four-point braking lights must be in the Form follows Function ethos. Someone somewhere has found that they are more conspicuous to the driver behind, I guess

    The targa looks terrific. Maybe the new suspension can mask its weight better than the last one.

    I think that the substantial increase in torque will be more useful at this, besides it seems that the 4-wheel drive is now the way to go, so while the Targa used to be a dynamically compromised 911 due to AWD and Targa concept (Weight, elevated CoG), now the Targa is  compromised "just" because it is a Targa.

    +1, particularly the, "give the effect that some bulbs are burned out," part.


    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 (facelift) Carrera 4 and Carrera 4S

    I also think the 4-dot brake lights look cool. In real life at least they look great and the Photoshopped image does not show it from its best side. Just look at the FL-Cayenne. Looks cool and modern.

    Are these now LEDs?  If so their brightness could mean that they don't need as many points of light; also for brake lights to be effective they need to look substantially different than normal running tail lights, ie have some "shock value".

    Well, there's a link to a video in the other thread where you can see them in action. They do actually look much better than the cheesy photoshop job above.


    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 (facelift) Carrera 4 and Carrera 4S

    Right, the extra torque should load the body sooner and settle the car down more.

    a s beauty ...but if it is a Lava Orange configurator sceen shot , the real world color is much flatter and as noted is a more salmony " track car " orange color ........this rendering looks more like the two versions of "  road car " metallic Daytona   Orange on recent  Corvettes , which I have always felt would be a better 911 color than a Corvette color .

    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 (facelift) Carrera 4 and Carrera 4S

    I like that shade of grey for sure. With all of these twin turbos coming up, I wonder how they will distinguish the actual Turbo other than the fastest one!!!

    I won't be surprised to see fancy electric turbocharger(s) on the Turbo that reduce lag and improve performance (as demonstrated by Audi).

    You're probably right. Something tells me we will see more synergy with Audi also. Porsche is also busy accumulating depressed VW shares. The family battles continue.

    Some pics of a very nice color on the .2 that I spotted at a specialist last weekend:

    Recently drove a graphite blue metallic 991.2 CS, same colour as the picture above.  Was struck by how good the colour looked - quite surprised

    Since both sides of the family schism are represented in the Porsche holding company, which owns the voting majority of the VW Group, VW share purchases are not necessarily a sign that the battle continues. They are just a sign that they think that VW Group shares are a good buy at the moment.   Smiley
