    My wife thinks the wings belong to a track only and when she sees one driven on street she laughs, calls the poor guy a poser trying to look like a "race car driver".

    Loves the Lusso and 812 but not the 488.

    Too obvious and classic in the Ferrari. She would look even   better in a GT3 RS. Smiley

    If it's an RS, I want the wing. So a GT3RS Targa.

    I love wings. I have had cars with no wings, a small wing, a medium wing, a large wing, a extra large wing, and one that have an erection function.

    The car I love the most is the one with the extra large wingSmiley The Cup car!!!

    the-missile:

    what is the concept of castrated GT3? touring is non sense...it is same chassis and setup as the wingy...no difference in whatsoever part. placebo feeling that you have an R?

    where are the exotics parts then?

    PAG is laughing all the way...

    The replacement of the fixed rear wing with the normal retractable spoiler obviously compromises downforce. I wonder how is this deficit compensated? Is there a diffuse or another aerodynamic aid?

    Either the fixed wing is not necessary and superfluous or the roadholding and safety of the wingless car is reduced.

    Any explanations by experts?

    technically from the engine side yes, from the material used on the car no. R has exotics parts in CF and magnesium that regular 3 does not have. Smiley

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

    The red and green (from the cabrio thread) really highlight how bad the car looks in bright colors, with all the black plastic and disjointed horizontal lines.  Porsche also cheapened out and didn't take the opportunity to fix the 991 roof which, in black, is very obviously not in line with the edges of the windshield or rear window--a flaw which is more obvious with the black plastic piece at the base of the rear window.

    Does anyone have experience with how the needlessly complicated flush door handles work after an ice storm if they're frozen shut?  As it stands currently I can eventually tug my frozen door open, but if there's no handle to grab do I just wait until Spring?

    Not that they care in Weissach, but I'll be sitting out until at least the facelift.

    Intend to agree. Think the door handles are Ill-thought through. When I teach my kids to close the door on the 993 or Macan I tell them not to just push on the door panel but to push on the handle. How do you do that with the new flaps?

    Re door handles: Tesla-itis? 


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

    One assumes those door handles would have been tested in freezing conditions? Wouldn’t worry to much..

    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?

    Deviating stitching has become so common with the GT model Porsches that I forgot how nice plain black stitching looks.
