Whenever there is a new generation of 911, we like to compile opinions from as many different sources as possible before making a full judgement. To that end, we were excited to see Yuri and Jakub of The Straight Pipes throw their opinion into the ring. Every generation of 911 has gotten better [Yes, even the 996] and it’s difficult to believe that the 992 can improve on the near-perfection delivered by the 991. These two get behind the wheel of a brand new C4S and get into the serious details with this nearly-twenty-minute review. It’s comprehensive, to say the least.
It’s important to start with the fact that the new 992 still feels like a 911. It takes everything that was great about the 991 and exaggerates it just a bit.
Sure, there are some gripes. The PDK shifter in the center console is a little wimpy looking. The gauge cluster still has the traditional five rings, but the outer two are near impossible to see through the steering wheel opening. The Apple Car Play buttons are a bit on the small side. Obviously the rear seats are still useless for adults. And it’s expensive. These are things you get used to when you buy a new 911, however, and maybe not that big of a deal if you really want one.
It’s a really important time for Porsche right now, with a new 911 just hitting customers, plus the launch of the Taycan. They’re really busy over in Stuttgart right now. Which would you rather have? Let us know in the comments below.
