I assume the cupholder in your car is in the same spot in mine. You think its a good idea to have it right next to and above the console? One good bump or hard turn and it goes flying. There are several threads on RL or 6SP about this and alternatives on the floor.I am not sure I like this idea of putting a cup holder right behind the shifter.
And when you hit a bump, or turn to fast, and that cup jostles, .... liquid all over the console. Do a search on RL or elsewhere and people whine about it all the time. They are afterthoughts. The new interior I think comes from the Panny. You know, time to update everything with a new look. LCD gauges too. No more real gauges. Got to be "modern".The swing out, cup holders in my car are not that great. The one closest to me however is easy to reach and will hold a Contigo for coffee or a small bottle of water.
You misunderstand. I don't mean digital readouts. I think the new gauges look just like analog ones, just LCD or whatever they use these days with a dial. Watch. It's made to emulate the analog gauges.Real gauges suck, actually. Because it's usually quite difficult to read anything but very approximate values from one. If you can read your analog speedometer at a glance to anything closer than ~10 MPH, you've got better eyeballs than I do.
Here is another C&D article which suggests that the Pirellis are no louder than the Michelins, at least at 60 mph. In fact, the differences between all five tested tires are minimal.Finally, the tires selected by Porsche, P zeros are very noisy. They drown out every other sound on the highway. This has been written about in reviews as well.
"The one aspect that might not make one feel grand about touring in a 911 C4S is interior noise. Road and tire noise raise the sound level to 76 decibels at 70 mph, which is anything but luxurious. Even the Mercedes-AMG GT S belts out 74 decibels at 70, so the 911 isn’t horrible in this regard, but ears can grow tired of the abuse on longer trips."
I posted a link to this comparison in the tires and wheels thread. Here are some observations from that article. No comments about P zeros but I am familar with this tire (not this PZ4 though).Here is another C&D article which suggests that the Pirellis are no louder than the Michelins, at least at 60 mph.

That's not going to happen. 911s are five gauge pods period. Always, AFAIK, been that way. Of course, they could have dumped that years ago but its tradition, just like the ignition on the left. Maybe the Mission E will have no gauges.My 911 could benefit from a simpler set of gauges.
OK. But Porsche also offers options that add weight such as 18-ways seats, glass sunroof etc. (like in my car). Most 911s I see have quite a few luxury trappings. I don't see too many stripped 911s. And dealers don't want to order them either. No profit in low option cars. Some models like the Targas are considerably heavier than the standard Carreras."the bodyshell, therefore, we used very thin, but nevertheless extremely rigid, sheets of steel. Aluminium and magnesium were used extensively in areas such as the roof, underbody, front end, doors, rear wings and engine compartment and luggage compartment lids. Lightweight magnesium was also selected for the cockpit support beam. Such material efficiency is key to reducing the overall weight and, as a result, fuel consumption of the vehicle."
I doubt they made the .2 heavier. The car is acting exactly as designed.
Just saying ....
This is, in fact, what Tesla did with the Model 3.Maybe the Mission E will have no gauges.
