    Good idea to put those two pics side by side luke kiss... You can clear!y see that the lower part of the rear bumper is all wrong in shape.

    Why bother to make a render of the rear of the car when we all have seen the real deal already? yes

    Especially when you don't bother to remove obvious things like the red tape on the rear decklid... It really hardly adds any value. Well, I guess it sells to put the render on the front of a magazine.

    Trust me, only nuts like us have seen the real deal picture. The average Joe doesn't dig that deep for information.

    Re: 992 Thread Closed

    If I recall correctly, we did have quite some discussion about the credibility of this particular image when it first came up. I don't recall the outcome anymore.

    However, I did some quick and dirty photoshop (decreased contrast and increased brightness).

    The following is quite evident:

    • the model designation "911 Carrera 4S" is fake.
      The level of detail of the source image is much higher (pixel size, level of noise) than the actual image of the car, the outlines are clearly artificial
       
    • the license plate is fake
      It is misaligned, and again the level of detail is higher. The transition between the actual image and the source of the number plate can be clearly seen on the RH side of the plate.
       

    My guess; the model description is added to give it more credibility as being "real", the number plate is added to either hide the real plate or for the same reason as the model designation.

    In the beginning I had my doubts about the weird interruption of the reflection of the overhead lighting on the right rear light cluster of the car, but it is in line with a break in the reflection in exactly the same spot on the left rear light cluster. My conclusion is that the image is real, the rear lights are real, the general shape of the rear bumper is real, but the model designation and license plate were photoshopped for whatever reason.

    (Sorry for my crappy representation, I don't know how to draw circles and arrows in photoshop (frown) so I copy/pasted it to powerpoint and then added those objects, then made a screenshot again... I know, I'm an amateur...

    Concur and expressed doubt when it was originally posted and commented upon.  The third brake looks like a return to the poor integration of the 1980s when Porsche used the war of the worlds pod and pram handle designs.  The company has moved well beyond those days.

    This is the original image. The one with the 4s script and plate was something somebody made 2/3 days after the original photo was leaked.

    Re: 992 Thread Closed

    Just kidding. I was praising your analysis of the picture !  

    Im far more interested in the specs than the look. 

    In of this order  1) weight and distribution  2) HP 3) torque 4) handling 5) mpg  

    price comes last 😎

    As always it will be better in every way   

     


    Re: 992 Thread Closed

    It just occurred to me that the clear portion on the tail lights would blend in perfectly on an agate grey car, giving it a super clean look on the back with only the red stripe standing out.

    Let me rephrase!!! I think a fellow Rennteamer took the time (his time and I Appreciate) to made some changes to the original photo so we can have an idea how the tinal product would (maybe) be!!!

    And I thank him for his effort!!!

    Re: 992 Thread Closed

    Guys, the photo of the yellow 992 is real, there has never been any doubt.

    I know the (un)official back-story to this thing, the photo has been taken in a Scandinavian country during winter testing by a Porsche employee, she has been fired since! The person who posted the photo on social media (also a woman) had nothing to do with the photo, even if it seemed to be related to a local Porsche dealer in Germany.

    I hope this clarifies things.

    So how did the second lady get the photo from the first lady

    They met when they were in the supermarket and simultaneously wanted to pick up the same can of whipped cream from the shelf. Their hands touched and their eyes met... love was all in the air and after a passionate night involving said whipped cream, a bottle of champagne and a bearskin rug in front of a fireplace, the next morning they discovered their mutual love for Porsche cars. The rest... is history!

    Maybe they were friends and lady #1 just wanted to share it with lady #2  . Lady #2 was the one that didn't use any common sense in regards to her friends job. Then again this is a hypothetical extra dramatic scenario that I'm making up in my head.

    The first lady was related to the second lady but the second lady didn't get in trouble because she didn't take the photo, she wasn't a Porsche employee (apparently just some sort of trainee at a local dealer) and also didn't realize what happens if she posts this on social media. Smiley
