Chris Harris review on the new Porsche "992".

I hate to say i hate the rear lights.


The new rear end hasn't gone down well in the Porsche lovers circle. It's just too uninspiring and bland for my taste.

It must be so difficult to mess up the design of a 911, but my God, with that rear they appear to have managed it.  :-\

Optional Sport Design package make the arse look a little better but still not a fan of the rear brake light all the way across.

Think the spoiler looks like you left the boot open when deployed.

Will wait final judgment until I see one in the metal but not rushing to part with my cash just yet.

Looks like it's getting the same hate as the 996 headlights used to get.

Started seeing the new BMW 850i videos on Youtube the past few days, that car looks amazing.

The rear light set up is probably the best looking thing about the new Macan and Cayenne, but yeah it looks shit on a 'proper' Porsche.

Thatís because the Macan and Cayenne are two of the most atrociously ugly cars ever produced.

I love the Maseratiís too, so good to look at. 

On the flip side, Mclarens are pug ugly, I see quite a lot as I only live a few miles form their factory and they seem to run them in past my house.

I gave the driver a big smile and thimbs uo, he looked well chuffed.I loved the Kindig doors handles on it - Kindig designs in the US do a blended in door handle and the Aston has those.

Gotta disagree about the McLaren, I love those cars, especially in orange.

I loved that Jag. :thumbup

I like the look of the older Jaguars, I can't stand the modern cars, unless you are in the market for a Supercar, they all look the same, boring as fuck. The XF and the XE could as easily be a Ford, BMW or Audi.

I too like the looks of the older cars, especially the older Jags. Mine is not too old but it is miles away from those new ones.

Looked really cool with the black wheels.

There is a new show on Discovery called Trans Am. Two brothers who bought the Trans Am name after GM shut Pontiac. As well as restoring muscle cars, mainly Trans Ams, they are building a modern Trans Am based on converting a brand new Camaro. They do this because the original Trans Am and Camaro shared the same platform. This is the Bandit version they built. Limited run of cars, with the dash signed by Burt Reynolds

I hadn't really looked at the Camaro and I thought they'd made the car look different, but now I have looked at a 2017 car, I see exactly what you mean - I'd rather have the Camaro too.

Love the LC500 . It's on my to buy list , but the base model starts at around £70k plus , so will have to wait for many years of depreciation to have any chance of getting one ( the cheapest used over here is around £ 60k for a 2017 plate ) .

I happen to like the grill Lexus now puts on their cars, but there's no doubt it's hated by many. No grey area, you either love it or hate it, which I suppose is what they wanted. So many cars look alike now. It's nice to see someone at least trying to do something a little edgy.

And Spongebob, I'm with you. I love the car but at best I'll be buying a used 2019 model......in 2029 when it depreciates enough. So expensive. :(
