- - - - - - - - - M2 - - - - - 991
Wheelbase - 106.0 - - 96.5

Length - - 176.2 - - 177.1

Width - - 73.0 - - 71.2

Height - - 55.5 - - 50.9

Weight - - 3450 - - 3153


The M2 is a bigger car. Is the 991 bigger than it should be? IMO, yes. Is the 991 a big car, or a midsize car, or a luxury coupe? Nope. Its a sports car that is getting bigger like almost every other car.
Curious on this width, are you quoting the base car, or the wider "S"?

The M2 is barely smaller. It has supplanted the M3 and the M3 is the new M5 and M5 is a yacht and the M8 well....lets not go there.

Before the 991 was about to launch , it was considered ugly ,and 997 is the last remaining true 911. Keep in mind there is a lot of camouflage on the rear end ( same as 991 right before launch ) wait until the final product is release.

Also these are only the base carrera ,have to wait for more sportier options from porsche , like pasm sport ( lower suspension ) and sport design bumper/aero kit etc etc . Notice they’ve added a lower lip to this version ,instead of the flat front from earlier almost complete spy shot?

I mean, heck - a nicely equipped 991 Turbo S Cab is MORE MONEY than a brand new Ferrari Portifino and only about $20K less than the new Ferrari 488 GTB! The GT2RS is the same price as the Ferrari 812 SuperFast and $100,000 more than a Lambo Hurican. These prices just seem obscene to me. For crying out loud, a Boxster costs more than the M4 these days if nicely equipped. I just don't get it.
Well to be fair a Cayman/Boxster are superior to an M4 in many ways. Definitely in resale value.

Give me 325 whp and 2100lbs

And the position of that third brake light on the 992 is horrible.

You gotta forgo all the new technologies/safety/emissions stuff to get that weight.

*cough* Turbo miata *cough*

Or I guess use a ton of carbon/titanium to compensate when you can
