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

    waiting for PDK:

    I'm not worried about sub freezing temps for the door handles; I'm worried about them stuck shut--how do they open when coated in ice and if the door handle doesn't pop out, how do you get the door open?

    Very legitimate question, just recently we had had snowstorms, -50F windchill, then jump to +50F warm up in one day, heavy rain and then freeze again.

    Some cars left outside ended up covered with a thin layer of ice, you have to grab the handle firmly and tug sharply to break the ice.

    Friend's Tesla had it's door handle frozen solid, he had to pour boiling water on it to thaw it first.

    Not his car on the pic, btw.

    The article also confirms that the Porsche 992 GT3 engine will be the 4.0 naturally-aspirated motorsport flat-six 9000rpm motor with over 500bhp available with PDK or manual gearbox!  1538770913308image.gif

    Looks like a Panamera with a wing enlightened

    Hopefully far from the real deal.

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

    I rarely post, but decided to hit up the Philly auto show to check out the new 911 and take a few pictures for the board (sorry about the order, few others show first). Car looks great in person, but was hard to get true perspective on size given it was on a platform. Not a small car by any means, but with the wider rear and front it works well. Front bits with all the sensors / cameras looks a little busy (IMO), but what can you do, it's technology and not all will have these. Back looks big, but again, fits the car well. Pictures make the third tail light stand out more than it did in person - may have been the lighting, but it didn't look all that out of place. Wheels looked great, but they are big. Interior, despite not being able to really see first hand as it was locked, looked very good and premium (full leather). For how large the car looks on the outside, the interior remained tight and sporty.  Braun shaver also looked fine and not out of place. Wish they would have had a variety of colors, but suspect this car will work best in darker colors as it hides some of the busier areas front and rear. Overall, a very modern and fresh take for the 911 - looks the same, yet better (same story as every iteration). 

    In addition, threw in a few more photos. Senna looks interesting and this paint job did not do it many favors - not my style. New rolls SUV looks cartoonish IMO - probably a fantastic truck, but without deviation from the current design langauge looks like someone took a phantom and just jacked it up a little given the front proportions look identicle in person. Lambos looked as expected. @RC - good luck changing colors. The white on the performante looked great with the carbon, but amoungst the sea of whites they had around it, just didn't scream lamborghini. New mustang looked very good in person, where in pictures I thought had some design issues with the front end. Interesting to see that they still don't know price point or power output, but probably a great car for whatever they end up with. Finally, new Macan tail lights I will leave my opinion as undecided. Looked pretty good, but design was lost on the color they had - may have been intentional.

    Thanks for the pics dbf304!  Really like the GT500 and the blue on the 992.  Hate to think what that paint job cost on that Senna especially for one that isn’t that great Smiley


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

    Thanks for the pics...would love to own every single car in them but surprisingly with the exception of the Porsche(s). Smiley Maybe it is the color of the 992...not my favorite.

    Talked to a guy who drove the 992 on the track. He was very positive about the grip at the front axle. The wider track seems to have a remarkable effect SmileyAlso, he said, the design is much, much better in real life than on any picture he has seen. I am very excited!


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

    SciFrog:

    The 911 has a two model cycle, meaning the 993 is based on the 964, the 996 is new and more different, the 997 is based on the 996, the 991 is new and more different, this 992 is based on the 991 therefore very similar. Evolution and not revolution is a trademark of the 911 and something fans actually appreciate, I have no problem with it, on the contrary, I would hate to see a radical departure from the classic evolutionary design of the 911, it is a value in itself, and after 56 years running with increasing success they are not going to throw that away.

    You are correct. The 992 is a 991 but ate way too much over the holidays.

    992 looks fat and u-athletic. And a 991 already looks fat.

    The 997.1 was perfect design and size wise. But it did not have PDK...


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

    Yeah, the Tiptronic was absolutely horrible, hated it, no place on a 911 IMO.

    Yes, the PDK in 997.2 transformed the car greatly.

    Respectfully disagree.  I have recently seen a couple of new 992s and am more impressed when see the car in the sheetmetal than in photographs.  It is quite sinewy despite having the wide body look.  May even order one with the new PDK, which would be a first non-manual Porsche in the garage.
