At the time of this post, journalists are experiencing the all-new 992 911 Carrera (S, 4S, Cabriolet S and Cabriolet 4S) on some spectacular driving roads in Spain. To say I'm jealous is an understatement :D Behind the scenes coverage continues to show up on all the popular social media platforms. I follow quite a few publications and specific journalists and assume some of you do as well. While we wait for reviews of the new 992, lets share what we find in that coverage on this thread. This will be a great time to see certain 922 911 Carrera configurations each one of us are after, in my case that's a Racing Yellow Carrera 4S and I can spot a few of them already!.

That's an awesome picture of all the generations line up beside one another. With the small engine bay and plastic cladding, this is probably the only look we'll get at the engine in the 992.

Unfortunately it seems like the journalists only got to drive the 992, giving them seat time in different generations brings a level of perspective that's invaluable.

I would imagine that most of the auto journalists at these kinds of events have already spent lots of time in previous generations of the 911. It is unfortunate there is essentially nothing to look at in the 992's engine bay.

Not always is the experience still fresh with them so really there's no replacement for back to back testing.

Chris Harris touched on that from his review. Stating that its a shame that you have nothing to show for the money you spent on the car when popping the trunk. Seen nothing but praise in regards to the 992's driving dynamics so far.

Its always great hearing from people like Chris Harris and even Jeremy Clarkson, some very well respected journalists in the automotive industry.
Matt Farah is another person i'm hoping to hear feedback from.
