I wonder where they'll put the battery packs.
No need for battery packs. Porsche is developing an electric 3.0 flat 6 motor.
I think this would be an appropriate reaction.
I actually like the straight line of the boot/trunk and the front bumper. Also the wider front wheel well/front fender/front mudguards, or whatever you called it in English.
Exciiting times ahead for 911 fans.
Hmmmm, I'll need to wait to see one in the metal, but at this stage, she sure has a fat ass... and not in a good way!
I'm pretty sure I'm going to like this new iteration of the 911. That "fat ass" looks a lot like the new Panamera and that is why I know I'm going to like the 992, I think.
What I like so far:
* "Ass" seems to be wider on a RWD 992 compared to the 991
* Front wheel well/front fender/front mudguards, or whatever you called it in English are wider
* the straight line of the boot/trunk and the front bumper
* Placement of the tailpipes
* Radiator grill (rear end of the car)
* Looks shorter than the 991
It's not the width of the rear, more the deep bumper and narrow lights make it look too high in the photos.
I'll reserve judgement until I see one in the metal.
Sure it will drive amazingly well (as they all do!!)
Well, 997.2 looks prettier and prettier with each new model.
I'd probably throw 991.2 into the mix as well.
Any exciting news to report?
New image (to me)...
That looks better for some reason.
The lower black part of the rear bumper looks strange.
I like it. Looking forward to this generation. Gonna be a long wait before the GT2/ GT3 models though!
Red arrow; seems to be longer compared to the 991 models and more steep like the older models. Or is it an optical illusion? My illusion.
Probably because the last time we saw the rear of the car it was covered in tape...
True but maybe I'll have the money to own one by that time. The other thing is this model reminds me of all the reason why I grew up loving Porsche.
Nah, we saw the leaked photo of the rear awhile ago. It was ugly imo. This looks better.
Oohhh yeah i think its hard to judge from that original angle because of lens distortion.
The car looks better when we see the whole thing.
Probably three years at most until we see them.
To be honest, I wouldn't be surprised if this generation of GT3 goes turbocharged. As much as I don't want that to happen (n/a 9,000rpm ftw!), I can see it being so.
Probably end up liking it anyway.
Well this is basically the production car. There's nothing to hide now.
And here's the interior. Notice the two screens flanking the center tachometer?
I think it looks very nice.
I don't understand why they'd mess up the back end when they typically stick with nearly unchanging beautiful designs. I'm sure it looks better with the spoiler deployed.
I don't get their current obsession with blocks of grey plastic on their bumper designs (991.1 GT3 RS/GT2 RS and now this one). It looks cheap, blocky and haphazard.
What have they done with the rear end? It lost its 911 identity.
I want to see one IRL. When the 991 came out, I had the same reaction as I have now. But the 991 started to grow on me and now it is still one of the most beautiful 911. Maybe I'll get used to the rear end and will start to like it a lot.
If so, I'll buy one.
The new front bumper is probably the worst front end on any 911. It looks too blunt and square now. Rear isn't so bad despite being nicked from the Panamera. Hopefully once the Turbo and GT3 models come along with the wider hips will the new design look better
I actually like it. It's refreshingly unfussy. No fangs!
Found this in some Discord server. Probably offtopic, but I love it.
√999 is a personal favorite of mine
They should just add 9s for each generation and bundle them like this (1)9, (2)9, (3)9, etc.
What's going on with that black bit above the plate?
