    Which new shade of Silver?


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

    Wonderbar:

    Which new shade of Silver?

    Dolomite Silver - it's in the Configurator on Porsche website (unless the photo above is GT Silver)

    I'm not sure if it's a re-release of an old color, but it has not been offered on 911 (without PTS) as long as I can remember...  Maybe it was used on 4-door vehicles?  Not sports cars...

    The most recent 911 Silver was Rhodium which is gone now.

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

    You are correct, thankswink


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

    Dolomite was introduced on the Panamera earlier this year.

    Coloured tach dials have also appeared as an option of the US configurator for the 992.

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

    Thanks to both of you guys. The color was somewhere in the back of my mind, so I’m glad you have cleared up the confusion. I think the color has a hint of blue in it, a bit like Polar Silver several years back.

    Let’s hear it for manuals:  https://www.carmagazine.co.uk/features/opinion/mark-walton/the-joy-of-manual-gearchanges/ Too bad the 992 will probably receive a seven speed manual versus the stellar six speed found on the 991 GT3 Touring.

    Careful here...interior sound is great, exterior sound is a different story. I heard a car with sport exhaust and it definitely sounded much(!) worse than my former 991.2 Carrera GTS Cab (which sounded great for a turbo charged car). Very generic sound but maybe they tweaked it, the mule I heard was a couple of months ago.

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

    Played around with some options in the German 992 configurator, came up with a price tag of around 161k EUR.

    Nothing fancy, a bi-color leather interior, sportiest chassis setups, painted rims, BOSE, rear view camera, no sophisticated assistant systems, etc.. Ouch, pretty steep at 161k EUR.

    "Good" news is: The standard lease rate from Porsche Financial for such a configuration is 2200 EUR (incl. 19% VAT and no initial payment, 10k km per year and 36 months). This means that some lease companies will offer the car under 2k EUR per month, there could be also some special offers along the way for 1600-1700 EUR...

    Just three "interesting" photos. I believe it's in Japan.

    Camo on the front lip bumper, rear bumper and 4 black dots along the rear light strip (who many thought (including me) some months ago that the rear light strip would be divided in 4 parts).

    I agree. I post on another thread what the 991.2 sounded like and it was an embarrassment. I believe th sound in the video is provided only for the interior. The outside sound I suspect is an abomination.Smiley

    seriously impressive !


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

    Thanks, Boyko23 for the upload - very informative document Smiley BTW the document mentions the 7:25 Nordschleife lap time, which means that the NoS-performance is not on par with the equally powered 991.2 GTS (not that it means anything for reallife use of the car).

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

    I believe there is a previous post on this thread which helps explain the difference in lap times. Different tires on different cars. For an accurate comparison, times should recorded with same driver and same tires.

    ..and on the same day and at the same time. Track temperature variations and  general condition can add or subtract seconds.
