Maybe the shifter pops off so you can shave on your way to work?

Don't label me as Racist, but all 911's look the same to me...

x 1,000%

All 911's have been quite spartan interiors IMO and unfitting of a car in that price point.

I love the ass and that long light bar. I am certain the Turbo S version will be delicious indeed...

I'm still taking something more "exotic" with much better "curbside appeal for my $$$. But, I do appreciate the engineering and amazing driving of Porsche.

it just looks more and more blah --

sure it's got round lights but, the plastic bits along the nose and the rear that just looks like rounded ABS with some exhaust tips.

not a fan. give me some more aggressive hips - something that says less "wifes car" and more of a proper, gentleman's sports car.

Rear end is the biggest problem. Needs to taper like the 991.

Looks really good. Huge fan of the full light bar.

Glad they got rid of the Golf center exhaust look.

When I first saw the leaks a month or whatever back I hated it, but I'm actually starting to like it, especially the edit/or shot? with the HREs. Interior looks much improved besides the shaver shifter, but I don't like that they went away from the rounded edge hood and went with the sqaured one. Doesn't look right with the rest of the curvy lines on the car like the rounded edge did.

The quad exhaust through the bumper looks great. It does have some wide hips.

One of the nicest asses I've ever seen on a Porsche! The rear end is sooo much more aggressive and unlike any previous designs.

The rear light bar is definitely a throwback to the 964. The straight hood line is as well.

I watched a video on youtube last night, and on the move the rear end does not look good at all, especially when viewed right from the back. It is way too bulky, compared to the rest of the car. It is the first 911 since the 996, that doesn't appeal to me. Even though I can't afford it, it doesn't have that "Buy me" factor.

Maybe in 2 years time, 991 prices would have come down enough for me to get a Carrera S.

Definitely, the interior is now on par, or ahead, of it's competitors.
