I was chatting with my buddy @ducstar last night during Porsche's live event to reveal the new 911. In case you missed it, here's the event:
Duc owns an absolutely gorgeous Generation 7 Porsche 911 Carerra 4S. He takes some pretty spectacular photos of it while driving around the Bay Area.
Porsche has a difficult task when it comes to designing new versions of the 911. They must look at their past to stay true to its heritage but also look forward and innovate for the future. If they go too far in either direction, they risk the car becoming stale or no longer feeling like a 911.
Most other car companies (except for maybe Jeep and the Wrangler) don't have this problem. If the 2020 Toyota Camry doesn't look like an 1985 Camry, nobody cares.
Last night marks the beginning of a new era for the 911. Generation 8. The 992. What do you think? Did Porsche design the 992 with the right mixture of heritage and future? Or did they go too far in one direction?
