    So many 911 driven by women here in Bavaria... Smiley Even my wife's hairdresser owns one. Smiley

    There are also some women who play football although it is a man's sport.

    However, out of the masculine population real men drive 911 and especially the GT models.Smiley

    If you say so... Smiley

    Whoopsy:

    As usual, I shall be the one that says something that no one wants to say.

    The 911 is like a woman.

    First it was the pre-teen years, the original 911

    Then it is teenager, the 964

    Then it turned adult, the 993

    Then it had kids, i.e. the Boxsters and Caymans, the 996

    Then it got back to the gym after child birth, the 997

    Then it gotten older and became a MILF, the 991

    Now it's just a fat middle age woman, the 992.

    Next stop it will be a old saggy woman, the 99?

    Well said!  Smiley

    The great thing is we have the option of each buying our individual favourite "model".  The only surprise is how many like the fat middle age woman... but hey, she's got nifty rain sensors as she's too fat to drive in the rain otherwiseSmiley

    My Vantage has been one of the most reliable car I have ever owned even after 10 years, go figure... My experience with Porsche reliability has been average at best. Ferrari is Ferrari, it’s own league.

    991.2 Carrera GTS convertible = 0 issues.

    991.1 Carrera GTS convertible = 0 issues.

    991.1 Turbo S = 0 issues.

    997.2 Carrera GTS convertible = 0 issues.

    997 Turbo = 0 issues (only had an ECU failure the RUF ECU had a cold soldering point, otherwise the car was tuned...RUF 550...for over 30000 km, driven very hard, 0 issues). 

    997 Carrera S = 0 issues.

    996 Carrera 4 Powerkit = 0 issues.

    996 Carrera 2 = tons of issues, mainly interior quality and electronics.

    The 911 is a very reliable Porsche in my opinion.

    According to most Used Car Ratings,  911s are the most reliable cars above 5 years. And up to 5 years they are very near the top.

    For some reasons other Porsche models do not rank so high.

    Her. The hairdresser is a woman and yes, you probably can say that, no customer exits her shop without leaving at least 200 EUR behind. Smiley On the other hand, she is a good friend (we even did a driving event together...she was a bit frustrated afterwards though Smiley), she sent my wife hundreds(!) of patients, no kidding. So I guess we're good. Smiley She loves Porsche and especially the 911. Probably the reason she hasn't found a life partner/husband yet...she is too much into cars, most men feel emasculated (yes, I know what you think but honestly, this seems to be a thing nowadays Smiley).

    It isn't 100% Panamera, not even 90%, just wait and see. Of course they are trying to find the right amount of synergy between the different model lines, it saves cost and helps the brand CI. I like the new 992 a lot but I still want a 960. Smiley Smiley

    A bridge too far, or Panamera like--it could be made out of legos and still be better than the old one.  Talk about antiquated...

    Antiquated is what the 911 does best it would seem and what the "faithful" desire most.  NA engines, manual transmissions, and rear mounted engines seem to be most in demand and the most antiquated.

    Unfortunately younger and new customers have expectations of different levels of technology incorporating connectivity of mobile devices with the car.  Driving experience is less important to them.  


    Re: 992 Thread Closed

    According to Auto Bild (and the the guy who made thos for Auto Bild), the interior will look like this.

    Actually this a photoshop mix of previous interior spy pics.

    This is most definitely the case. We often forget what a tiny fraction of the market we represent. This explosion of weight, and contents was brought home to me more than ever when I visited RUF Automobile recently. What a joy it was to see such focussed driving machines. The CTR 2017 was a totally unique driving experience. A rear engined , carbon monocoque car with lot's of power that was easy to handle. Eerily precise steering, completely flat and stable under cornering; all accompanied by a cacophony of turbo hissing and waste gate nosies. Pure driving joy.

    See what they should have done is make the stupidly large key (like all keys nowadays it seems) BE THE GEAR LEVER. It's the same bloody size and that would have actually been cool. You put the key (which looks like a little braun shaver) in the hole in the center and then tap it forwards and back to shift into drive/reverse etc...
