Critics are what critics do - they complain the car lacks character, that its too good, too comfortable, too capable. Sounds like it answers what people want as daily driver! The part about costing too much money, there's always the base! If Porsche just makes one standard model with premium performance and premium price, it would have been mostly untouchable. There wouldn't be anything to gripe. Just human nature, I guess - always something to complain about.
Me, I'm really enjoying my base 7M 991.2 Cabriolet. On a nice day, I roll the top down; if it's windy, I flip the windscreen up and enjoy open top luxury. Some critics found the 7M gear lever too high - I installed the stock GT4 short shift kit enthusiasts rave about. It's snick snick short and precise shifting. For even more precision handling, I'm installing a DSC Sport V2; and as soon as the Cobb is available, I intend to get one (I know
). Of course none of these are needed, but the point is there's performance, and there's more performance. You can mod, stay stock, go base, or go TTS - but it's always a 911.
The thing about a 911 (or two) is it talks to me in ways no other cars could. It's precise, refine, fast, classy, luxury, sporty, with a beautifully sculpted exterior/interior that's comfortable to drive everyday. The 991.2 is an improvement in most ways. It may not be the fastest, exotic, or most involving to drive, but it's possibly the best premium sports car you can own and drive everyday.
