    There is only one problem: There isn't supposed to be a manual option for the 992.  Unless they changed this again, so they can charge for PDK. angry

    Yes, there will be a manual gearbox available for the 992! Smiley

    Keep in mind the 992 GT3 4.0 Touring and 992 R will both have a manual gearbox... Smiley

    There was a strong rumor that Porsche decided to say good.-bye to manual...

    Thank God rumors sometimes are just...rumors!!!

    You'd think they improved the interior with getting rid of the hideous PDK shifter, but then they cock it up with that cup holder. I'm not sure what looks worse yes

    They have most likely realised that there is a large gap in the market for a manual box sports car amongst the baby boomers and Generation X enthusiasts and that it likely has at least another 911 double model generation of sales left if legislation doesn't kill it off beforehand in terms of emissions. I just wish they'd drop the 7 speed manual version of the PDK and give us back the much better 6 speed that most buyers would prefer. They can afford to sacrifice a few tenths of seconds of performance to bring it back. PDK sales are now surely strong enough to warrant the development costs of that box without trying to eke out a few more by selling the questionable manual version of it. 6 forward gears in a manual box car are more than plenty and the motor sport team have always recognised this so it's time the bean counters accepted it as well.

    I think they would like to, but don't you think the GT3 Manual/Touring/911R/Speedster sold too well for that?

    actually, it does not look bad::::)))) maybe too much smooth untouched real estate in the rear. btw, when do we expect the 992 turbo S?

    The rear view looks like a 911 designed by Tesla.......Porsche is setting the stage to go all electric......get used to the look!


    Re: 992 (Next 911 generation 2018/2019) Thread Closed

    No chance the rear will look like that.


    Re: 992 (Next 911 generation 2018/2019) Thread Closed

    Back looks ugly.


    Re: 992 (Next 911 generation 2018/2019) Thread Closed

    I think it needs a GT3 rear wing to break up all that smooth real estate

    Haven't you seen the leaked photo of the yellow one?

    The front lights on that photoshop job are too big.

    No, rumors indicate 2019 for the Turbo S.

    Porsche is well aware that the benchmark 911 interior is currently supplied by Singer...

    ...let's see how they match that benchmark! Smiley


    Re: 992 (Next 911 generation 2018/2019) Thread Closed

    If benchmark means less safety, I gladly take the non-benchmark version. 

    Btw: This looks so outdated and yes, I know what a Singer is...still, not my thing.

    Had a similar interior in my 993, don't miss it at all.

    Sure. At a high enough level of abstraction (or squinting), everything is the same.

    If the interior pictures are true then at least the Hazard light button location is an improvement.

    You would be surprised how comfortable these Singer seats are. Safety - now that's another matter.

    Don't get me wrong, I love Singer and admire them for their craftsmanship, absolutely amazing job, especially how they pay attention to details and really offer a new experience, not just a simple restoration with a bit of tuning.

    I am more into modern cars, this is no secret. Smiley Even if Singer isn't really a classic...
