    By the way!!! I found rather amusing several websites including Motor1/Carscoops/Autoblog (and i´m fan of these sites) using the words "completely undisguised" (The best one was "only the badge is covered"

    WTF is that black tape on the front and rear????

    Go figure

    I must admit that I like 992 a lot. Interior will be more controversial then exterior.

    Re: Porsche 992 Thread Closed

    For those wondering about the 992 GT3 engine, this article is an interesting read, given the source...

    "Porsche investigating 9500rpm street-legal 911"

    The man behind the spellbinding new 4.0-litre, 9000rpm flat-six in the 991.2 911 GT3 has hinted that the ultimate naturally aspirated Porsche road car could still be yet to come.

    With rumours of the next generation GT3 going turbocharged, some Porsche enthusiasts could be forgiven for worrying that the 383kW/470Nm unit in the latest 991.2 GT3 RS is as potent as atmo Porsche engines will ever get.

    But speaking to MOTOR at the launch of the new GT3 RS, Thomas Mader, Project Manager GT Road Car Engines, said the latest iteration of the 4.0-litre atmo engine will not be the last. "I don't think so," he told MOTOR. "We're working on that with our team, we're looking at power, driveability, we're looking towards the future ... Developing is going on, so we will see."

    Mader, who used to work in Audi's motorsport engine department, said it was possible to stroke the engine for further capacity, letting imaginations run wild of a 991-series equivalent of the fabled 997 RS 4.0, whose Mezger engine was then the largest capacity ever fitted to a road-going 911. Mader didn't say if Porsche had seriously investigated an increased capacity version of the GT3's engine, saying only "our engine designers would have to look at that".

    Instead, he said more revs were a possibility for the road. The 4.0-litre GT3 engine is almost identical to that of the RSRGT3 Cup and R racers, save for different airboxes, air filters and exhaust systems. The race engines also do away with the variable intake system of the road cars. The version of the 4.0-litre in the 991.2 RSR revs to 9500rpm.

    "This is also a point for development," revealed Mader. "We will look at the things we have on racetrack to put it in the street car, that's our job. The point is, this makes sense, because you want to have power, driveability."

    Mader stressed that any such execution would require a rethink of the rest of the car. "For [the new GT3 RS], [9000rpm] is matched perfect to the whole system. Now I have to speak to my colleagues and we will have a car, and we will have 9500 revs, and matched to that all to the gearbox, then we will work on that technical side, which should be possible ... but [although] we have that engine for the racetrack, the lifetime aspect for road car is different."

    Mader was mum when asked about reports of the next generation '992' GT3 going turbocharged, instead saying that "there will be a future" for natural aspiration and that more gains are available in making naturally aspirated engines more fuel efficient.

    "I would work on precise internal combustion," he said, in describing how to make an atmo engine more fuel efficient. "It must be very precise with timing, the amount of fuel you put in the engine, then you have very low emissions engine. Then you have the exhaust cleaning systems."

    The 4.0-litre naturally aspirated unit in the new GT3 could go down as one of the greatest engines of all time, combining a 13.3:1 compression ratio and screaming 9000rpm redline for 383kW and 470Nm in the new RS, its 15kW/10Nm hike over the 'base' GT3 owing only to the ram air effect of the Turbo widebody inlets and more aggressive variable cam timing.

    Mader also said it was "technically possible" to mate the Getrag six-speed manual transmission in the 991.2 GT3 to the higher output engine of the GT3 RS.

    Watch this space.

    Re: Porsche 992 Thread Closed

    Keep them NA as long as possible. The future will be electric anyways so lets make the most of the current situation. 

    Keeping one or two variants of the 992 NA woulld make many people happy. There is no need for them to have more power as they are already more than what most can handle but they can focus on lowering its weight and increasing driving involvement. 


    Re: Porsche 992 Thread Closed

    only white calipers for new brake option?  can you get any other color (black)

    thank youSmiley


    Re: Porsche 992 Thread Closed

    The new rear looks really good. The front and side - well, it looks like 996, 997, 991.... Its a 911 - what should I say. 

    The new interior center console looks wide. I wonder if it takes too much space. The car already was tight, with the center console I'm worried that it even gets tighter. 

    Did you see that the center of the front grill just has foil in car-color? I think the real deal will be black plastic? Too many plastic parts on this car. It is typical for VW - even 30years back on the GTI they worked with black plastic parts.

    yes it is. horrible esthetics and useless.


    Re: Porsche 992 Thread Closed

    Still better looking than the one in the 991.

    I'm hoping it's just camera angles, but it looks very difficult to mount a US license plate up front without blocking the ACC camera.

    Gauss:

    yes true, but only a small consolation.


    Re: Porsche 992 Thread Closed

    While a 911 does not fit my current lifestyle needs (as does my current Panamera) I am quite excited about the new 992 prospects. The slightly refreshed design is just fine with me, not wildly exciting, but just fine. The real appeal for me is the increased performance, suspension set up, modernized interior, and the other handling improvements I know Porsche will provide. Over the years, Porsche’s dedication to performance has always been its strong suit. and though I might be imagining it, the auto build videos indicate true performance, braking  and power development. 


    Re: Porsche 992 Thread Closed

    That is true, that is the important part.

    Dashboard seems quite retro.. almost 993-like. That’s fine by me - a bit interesting and different. Centre console doesn’t seem to complement it though yes

    Re: Porsche 992 Thread Closed

    Well, so far I like the exterior better than the new interior, I must say. heart

    The new, mostly digital instruments do look nice, though the white needle looks a bit strange. The old-style “wart“ on the other hand looks totally out of place and doesn‘t fit the rest at all. New steering wheel looks overloaded, missing knobs look cheap. Central screen is okay, though I wonder if you really need another screen here, if you have two of them both sides of the rev counter. And as Lars already pointed out, the centre console seems to be very (too?) wide and I don‘t like this shiny surface at all. Oh, and the new PDK lever is just hideous BTW. broken heart
