Dash lights on or off, IMO, the gray face/matte white tach of the S is indefensible. Particularly as there is an inordinate amount of reflections off the covers. For over half a century, Porsche has placed the tach as the largest dial in the center of the gauge cluster as, agree or disagree, it has been viewed as the most valued and therefore used instrument. Perhaps they persist simply out of tradition, much as with the LeMans key... but if you're going to make it your centerpiece of the stack it has to at least be readable. Instrumentation has always been well thought out. I find this very unPorsche-like.
As for questions, I'd love to know under what circumstances the ebrake is auto-released on start. Seems like sometimes its automatically releases, others, I have to pull the lever.
