    My dealer told me a similar story last week. He has one Chinese student customer who apparently has a daily expense account of £500k and has been buying his friends Porsches as gifts. Different world..........

    In the 70s, the one spending were rich Iranians. 

    In the 80s, the one spending were rich Japanese.

    In the 90s, it was the rich Hong Kong and Taiwan Chinese.

    Since the late 2000s, it's the rich mainland Chinese.

    But none of the previous cycles were as vicious as the current wave.

    Unfortunately the problem isn't what money can buy, but what it cannot.

    I underestand ,but last line is the answer, iranians were rich because of oil ,opec,cccp policies,west,..., but people didn't waste like these days,they use it for economy,travel,education, not the one we see over here, my neighbour sold his house it to a guy from mainland in near 7 figure and he get 10 days for closing, after a year passed, I might seen him 2 times, the son is here ,studying!!! in college.

    The current generation came to the riches all of a sudden. The offsprings thought money grow on trees, they have no idea how much $1 is actually worth. Or how hard it is to actually earn $1. 

    Compounding the problem is that most of the money from China are dirty. The father of course knew that, that's why the export of money. To let his family survive when he eventually get arrested and executed.

    The reality is actually quite dysfunctional and sad. Father worked hard for the family. But because of that he seldom see the son/daughter, especially when he export them out to have a better education and better life. But the offsprings doesn't quite get it, they don't have the father/son father/daughter bond, they get lonely by themselves and all they got are friends who are in the same situation. So these rich offsprings are just showing off to each other what daddy just got them. Instead of concentrating on furthering their education, they just keep spending, buying 'friends', partying, cause the tap keep flowing and they are living the 'good life'. 

    Of course a portion of these exports are good ones, they actually cared about their education and future, but the majority just don't get it.

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

    Yes, it does. But, Geneva is IMHO way too early for 992. What about tones of 991.2 GTS models that are sitting in PZs all over Europe(and ROW)?

    Well, if the Porsche 992 Carrera will need a particulate filter, then surely it needs to be unveiled a few months before they start building and delivering it... Smiley

    I guess there will be a few 991.2 models built in parallel with the new 992 Carerra and Carrera S models...

    Car looks real, not sure if the photo is real though.

    There is no Nina Stegmaier at PZ Augsburg, so kind of weird.

    Smiley This is a very serious situation, it is under investigation right now. So far, it seems that some parts of the posted screenshot are fake but the car looks very real (although there is a bit of inconsistency in the exhaust region, so maybe it is a fake). Will know more soon...

    I doubt Nina works at PZ Augsburg, but one of her friends probably do. In between her party and Prada posts she must have thought it was a good idea to share the 992 indecision The post has been removed since...

    Sorry to disappoint you but no pre-production car around without camouflage. 

    Still not sure if photo is real, even if it looks real. 

    The three photos by that magazine are photoshopped.

    What is the red blotch in the center of the engine cover? Is it red tape, or is that the way they implemented the third brake light?
