         The little buttons and cheap switches in the 991 are crap. Not that the 997 is beautiful but it does not have such a cheap feel. 


    Exactly. Those buttons in the centre console are horrible and if you don't order each and every extra, 

     

    Well in a GT3, 50% of the buttons are not used...what ever the option you orderkiss

    The 997.1 was the last Porsche with a great Sound! Ever after direct injection was part of it, the emotions been cut half. 

    And - yes, 991 is close to perfection but if you want to drive an S-Class, then go buy at Mercedes. The less perfect, the more fun!

    We're at the point where you can be the fastest or just sound like you're the fastest.



    The secret of life is to admire without desiring.

     

    I don't think they look cheap but yes, "blind buttons" are a (design) disease car manufacturers need to get rid of.

    Cheap as in relative to the 997 buttons. For example the light switch next to the ignition key.  The 991 knob is smaller and cheaper. Period. Like looking at the knobs on a Merc C class vs E or S Class. Just a bit cheaper in look and feel. Mind you I don’t give a flying fig about the knobs themselves but it betrays an overall approach toward the newer cars. Driven by accounting departments.

    What is wrong with the interior? It is the highest quality 911 interior ever. Smiley

    Based on the spy shots I’ve seen so far, the 992 interior is an awkward mess.  Center Screen too big for the size of the dash, hulking openings as a result, no consistency with the switch gear, stupid looking shifter. Odd looking shelf reminding me of an 80s golf.

    other than that it’s fine

    "Porsche 'Not Pushing' for Turbo Switch in Future 911 RSR"

    (5 October 2018)

    Head of Porsche Motorsport Dr Frank-Steffen Walliser has discounted rumors of the German manufacturer switching to a turbocharged engine for its next-generation Porsche 911 RSR, stating that he doesn’t see a big need to go away from its tried-and-trusted normally aspirated powerplant.

    Spy shots of what appears to be Porsche’s new-for-2019 GTE car were revealed last month, with a car featuring a revised exhaust configuration.

    Eyewitness reports of a significantly different sounding engine, likely due to the muffled noise from the externally-placed exhaust tubes, led to speculation that a switch could be in the works for its next car, likely due in time for the start of the 2019-20 FIA World Endurance Championship season.

    While Walliser declined to comment on the spy shots or the existence of a new GTE car altogether, he did admit that he still sees no performance difference by going with a turbo under the current regulations. 

    “For me it’s properly balanced,” he told Sportscar365. “But this is not depending on turbo or no turbo. The turbos are controlled, they look at the temperatures of the intercoolers, they look at the boost pressures and all these things. For me it’s fine.”

    When asked if he sees a long-term future of continuing with normally aspirated flat-six engines in its 911 GTE race cars, Walliser said it depends on the link to Porsche’s production cars.

    “For sure, I look at the street cars,” he said. “If I asked the guys here [at Rennsport], ‘Should we stay normally aspirated or do you want a turbo?’ It’s only normally aspirated. If I go down in the paddock and ask, there’s craziness about normally aspirated engines. 

    “So this is very essential: the link to the street cars. The guys understand more to change the position of the engine than turbo or normally aspirated. 

    “Performance-wise, it doesn’t make a difference. It’s a different concept but it’s balanceable. I don’t feel a big need. It’s something we can do but we’re not pushing for it.”

    With the GTE class set to begin a new three-year regulations cycle in mid-2019, following the WEC ‘Super Season’-ending 24 Hours of Le Mans, Walliser acknowledged it does present an opportunity for manufacturers to roll out a new homologation, or simply opt for an Evo kit to its existing car.

    “You have a new homologation period and it’s up to you if you go for an update of the car or keep the [existing] car,” Walliser said.

    “Some competitors have done it the hard way [with] Evos. Knowing what you have is also good. But a new homologation is a new homologation.”

    Sportscar365 believes that the new-gen 911 RSR could be revealed before the end of this year.

    Re: 992

    They don't quite have to change the RSR over to turbo yet.

    They can wait and see how the GT2 cars will be performing first.

    SRO has a GT2 class coming, Porsche's GT2 ClubSport is sort of perfect for that class right now, be it using the GT2CS or the 935 version.

    They can wait and see how that goes before deciding on the future of the WEC program.

    Video of the 992 rear light strip on the highway. Dont know where it was filmed but i have a feeling it´s Dubai (Judging by two old videos posted some 4/5 months ago)

    Looks nice. Would love if the 992 had the iluminated Porsche symbol but i guess we are going to have to wait for the Taycan.

    I had hoped or assumed the black part above the messy cut line on the lower rear bumper would be painted on the final versions and not look like a lost license plate cutout.  The lower third of the 992 is really looking like an unfinished tuner special or a shameless money grab that to have all your car... painted.

    Cars still have some camo on them.  I expect and certainly hope that extra black section is camo.
