The 992 will again redefine and reset the bar as all 911s before it have. It will be intriguing to see whether the GT3 retains an NA motor or not.
The similarities are crazy!

People think the new 992 looks like the 993 I donít think so it might in some ways but the hood is to far the line should be further up in my opinion the hood goes over the front bumper line I donít like that I also donít think Porsche should change body styles or do facelifts so often I felt like the new Porsche 911ís just came out I was just at dealer buying my 991.2 the new standard turbos now we got 2020 Porsche 911ís coming out looking like the taycan on the taycan it looks good but not on the 911. This is the new 996 Iím sure they will fix it in the next gen which shouldnít be to long

I disagree, I like the more annologue feel of the 991.2.

Personally, the 911 should be performance oriented rather than luxury, but each person is different.

The more troubling issue - Every new iteration adds so much weight. A 992 is going to be 120lbs heavier again, after the 991.2 already gained weight from the 991.1.

Rear end is horrible, I cannot warm to it at all. Still eyeing off 997 verts.

I think I've finally warmed up to its looks. Like I said earlier, get it in manual so you don't have to see that stupid shifter.

Anyone who likes the 991.2 will see this as a quantum leap forward and will love it. I might be sold enough to look at the GT3 version.

What do you think about the new generation? The subtle changes to the rear really make me feel like this car is a lot more futuristic!

Not a fan AT ALL. That's why I jumped on the last of the new 991.2s.

992: Rear, über ugly (third brake light, barf). Front, ugly. Door handles, awful. Interior, blechhh. A PDK that can only be shifted manually with paddles, OMG. Upsizing, sheesh!

Agreed, I do however like that all models now come with the factory widebody. What were they thinking with the terrible third brake light?

I would argue that the last great looking and driving 911 was the 997.2. But that's because I prefer NA engines and hydraulic power steering.

Agreed. Full width tails and lower plate helps a lot. Labia light isn't that bad.
