     Sometimes you pay strictly for performance and not looks.  It happens every day Nick.  More often if you like to drink.  😁

     

    Hmm, even when impaired, still won't watch a 300lb lady dancing...................

    On a separate note, my Targa Heritage arrived and I didn't take it. 992 simply look fat in person. First car ever that I refused delivery.Smiley 

     

    Was it in Black? If not, that's the problem.Smiley

    Several years ago, I turned down a Turbo cab I had ordered because I wasn't enamored with the way it looked. I was in light blue.

     

    It was actually in white. 

    But I have been buying non-black cars for a while. The last black car I bought was the Panamera turbo S........I think.

    I would think the huge front black plastic part will come body color painted in the Touring version, as it not a version for the track. Which will make it look even better.

    Re: 992 GT3

    Touring2.jpgThese are the 2 areas I'm having a hard time accepting. Why did they change the bonnet design in the first place? Even the CUP has the 992 bonnet (with air openings). 

    The worst, however, are the sides of the front bumper. They are totally boring and blunt.

    IMO if just the thin front section of the lower bumper was body coloured on the touring it would look great. Also, big yes to Cuoio..

    Ok, the non matching off white tone doesn't help but I have to agree with you now, it looks horrible! Smiley

    Maybe what enmanuel suggest could work, just painting the lower lip.

    Re: 992 GT3

    Nick, I knew you have been buying cars other than in Black. I was referring to the fact that black would have made the car look thinner. It all explains why you thought the Targo was fat. It was in WHITE.Smiley

    I followed a 992 and the rear is really extremely wide  When the full width brake light lit the rear looked endless..

    I suspect Porsche wish their new 911 to look very wide. They haven't tried to conceal the width but on the contrary they accentuate it by the design of the rear lighting. Perhaps, car buyers like full bodied cars nowadays Smiley Let's face it all new cars are substantial in terms of dimensions.

    Last Saturday there was a white Taycan 4S in front of me. It looked so proportional and so compact and low. When turning the front side "intakes" curved from the body so nicely. IMO it is a top design from Porsche. Pity they haven't given this car a "real" engine.

    Re: 992 GT3

    it looks like darker colors suit the front better and lighter color give it a more "Disney Cars 1 - 3" look - perhaps a tuner could add / paint a smile on the front intakes...

    Re: 992 GT3

    Guys, I'm in the process (together with my son) to convince my wife that the GT3 is the "cooler" car for her, not the 992 Carrera GTS Cab she had in mind. blush

    Just yesterday we watched the GT3 presentation video together and I told her afterwards: "Nah, this car isn't for you, too sporty, you need something different." You should have seen her face, as if I told her she gained 500 grams. 

    Then she asked my son what he thinks about the GT3 (my son was already "prepared") and he shouted: "Coolest car ever...but not for you, this is a car for younger people and not for women.". This gave her the rest, she was so upset, even this morning, she was furious. 

    Now she wants to talk to our Porsche sales guy about delivery times and lease cost...stay tuned. smiley

    Just a few minutes ago, she told me that she really wants something "cool" once (as if she never had any cool car before ) but she also wants a convertible. I told her to get a cheap BMW 2 series convertible for sunny days and city traffic and the GT3 for fun. Now she is also calling our BMW guy. smiley

    Well...my wife isn't stupid, I think she is seeing through this but I also think she really wants to give the GT3 a shot, she really loved the test-drive in the 991.2 GT3. 

    I'll keep you guys informed. 

    This is how she configured the car already... (price around 197k EUR).

    Re: 992 GT3

    Unfortunately this is for the first time, I dislike the new GT3. "Aftermarket" wing yes "Unfinished mouth" in the front, busy fat rear and those holes in the bonnet mail  A disappointment for me. Can't force myself to like it. I'm afraid to think, how ugly the 992 GT3RS will be enlightened


    Re: 992 GT3

    P.S. And the price....no For this price, it makes it look even more ridiculous.
