Yep, you’re correct—it doesn’t look much different from the last one. Which itself was quite clearly related to the one before it, and now you come to mention it, wasn’t dissimilar to the one before that.
There were a couple before that one which bore an uncanny resemblance to the new 2019 992’s lozenge silhouette, too, because—and this might come as a shock—if you take a rear-engined coupe, give it a pair of small rear seats and a low hood line, you’ll end up with something that looks like a 911 pretty much every time.
Many people don’t like this styling outcome. “It looks like the last one,” they froth around Internet forums. “It’s an a**e-faced Nazi s**tbox,” they say as they mangle PJ O’Rourke’s harsh but historically and anatomically correct summary of Porsche’s strange little sports car that, well, just so happens to be the most successful of them all. The most recognizable, the most complete and the most long-lived. Rolex isn’t about to redesign the Submariner because it has found something that works and stuck with it.
