    Singer don’t build ‘new’ cars, so they don’t have to comply with the latest safety regulations, if I remember correctly...

     

    My 124 Spider, met the same regulation yet it's tiny parking next to a 991, let alone a 992.

     

    I’m not comparing car sizes, off course there are smaller cars Smiley I’m comparing car platforms/generations.

    Please show me a car model that got smaller with a new generation. Smiley  Even the Singer got wider than the original 964 it’s based on…

    Hehe you can blame the increasing size of cars on the increasing size of humans that goes inside them.

    You can now have your fingerprint painted on the frunk.  Exclusive is living up to the name.

    I mean, I am already nuts re wrapping ...but this ... I understand that the tech for this printing is outstanding, but ... c'mon ... btw, in Germany, this will only set you back EUR 7.5k ...


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

    If it would come with a fingerprint sensor for that price... ;-)


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

    Why whole anyone want an ugly giant fingerprint blob on the frunk? Weird indeed.

    Can’t they just do a giant penis on the hood? 


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

    what happens when one sells the car with his fingerprint on the hood? the next owner has to replace the hood I guess

    I guess the best you can say about this is that it does demonstrate the expertise and proficiency of the Exclusive Department. The millions of gray, white, silver and black cars around the world can be pretty boring, even depressing.  And, at least on this thread, we’re not talking about 0 to 60 acceleration times.


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

    You guys know that’s Mark Webber’s fingerprint, right?

    So can they do Webber‘s penis on the hood as well?  smiley

    Anyone have a miami blue 992 ? No.

     Any views on the color? Yes. I think a 992 (on the Porsche Configurator) looks a bit "blown up" in Miami Blue...so, not really a fan of this color, however, put some white (Porsche) stripes on it to hide the - to me - massiv proportions, why not ...

    Colours as always are a personal thing, but I think Miami blue is an amazing colour on 911’s - in fact I was very sorely tempted by a very low mileage 991/2 GTS in that colour but eventually head ruled heart (for once) and I walked away...😢

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

    Thanks guys. My dealer is all over me with a very aggressive discount on a Miami Blue 992 4S with shiny black rims, very much like the GTS in the picture above. The car is very striking and aggressive looking. My problem, and I hate to admit it, is that I live in a large metropolitan area where most cars are gray, silver or black, etc. The car would really stand out, and I’m not sure I’m comfortable with that. Probably a personality flaw, but that’s what Is holding me back.

    If my experience is any help, I'm just like you, always picked conservative colors for the 911 and don't like grabbing too much attention and prefer passing unnoticed when I'm enjoying the car, so I had the same conundrum when choosing the color of the 991GTS, it looked amazing in the GTS Carmine red but was initially very unsure and uncomfortable with such a eye catching color, thanks to the reassurance of some of the members of this forum I decided to go for it and turns out I never regretted it, love the color every time I see it, and while it catches extra attention, you get used to it, it is just a 911 after all. So imo go for it!

    Life is too short. Pick the colour YOU like, forget about everyone else, look ahead, focus, drive, and enjoy. It works really  well - try it.

    The fact that you're hesitant even with a significant discount ( that should tell you something. The dealer is trying to unload itSmiley) tells you all you need to know. Driving the car will make you feel uncomfortable. I have seen Miami Blue on a Porsche and in my opinion it's not a color for a Porsche. It has a feminine look to it. It might be better on a Boxster.Smiley 

    There are just too many good Porsche colors to choose from.

    Attached is a link to a fairly comprehensive listing of blues on the 911.  According to the author’s opinion, Miami blue is a very suitable color. https://gearpatrol.com/2019/12/11/definitive-ranking-blue-porsche-911/. Too many Porsche owners tend to shy away from more bold colors for Porsches; however, bold is always suitable on a sports car.
