As much as we loved the Porsche 991.2, the all-new 992 does look like an improvement, especially once you factor in everything that went into its design.
Sure, the new headlights, revised air intakes, reshaped hood and different LED DRLs may not seem like that big of a novelty, and they aren’t, but the enlarged fenders certainly do, as do the door handles (flush with the body) and the new taillights, connected by a Mission E-like light strip.
But enough about what we think, let’s hear it from Peter Varga himself, as he is the Director of Exterior Design over at Porsche.
Over the course of this 4-minute long video, Varga outlines his top five exterior design highlights of the brand new 911, and he begins by telling us about the third brake light, embedded vertically between the rear window and rear grille.
Other design traits he really likes include the low rear design, similar to how it was on the first 911 Turbo, the previously-mentioned electric door handles, the front wing design and the car’s overall proportions – which he claims are an improvement over those of the old 911, something we won’t disagree with.
Of course, if the exterior doesn’t impress you, then know that inside the 992 there is a new instrument cluster, a larger 10.9-inch infotainment display, a more angular dashboard (inspired by the 911s of the 1970s) and more overall room, courtesy of the slightly longer wheelbase.
