Like a child Panamera?
In this way, I feel that I have made a big evolution from the beginning. I can not say anything because the new model has not been officially announced yet, but I like the current 991 type design. The new 911 (992 type) to which the light behind is connected seems like "child Panamera" because I am watching Panamera everyday ...(Excuse me)
Well, say such a thing, do not worry if you actually see it. I am looking forward to the official announcement.
