It looks good, not phenomenal. Nevertheless, I expect it to sell well. I've got to admit, the hatchback design appears aesthetically odd, but I'm earnestly hoping that it looks better in production-form/reality.

I'm sorry if this has been flogged to death before, but how much USD are we expecting the MSRP to be? Ballpark of the S-Class/7-Series, or closer to the Quattroporte?

I have tried but I just cannot get on with the proportions of this car, particularly that bulbous rear end. Technically I’m sure it will be the pooch’s testicles but styling wise I am as yet unimpressed. Hopefully things will improve once the disguise is completely removed.

If this car turns out to be drop-dead gorgeous then Porsche deserves some credit for using camo to the greatest effect. If somehow they have managed to hide a low, svelte, seductively-styled coupe-sedan under that dorky shape then they are masters of illusion indeed.

Otherwise, it still looks dumpy.

It looks like someone made a Silly Putty Porsche 911 with a Carrera GT Body below the greenhouse, stretched the Silly Putty as far as they thought was necessary, then BOOM! hit the rear end of the car with their open palm.

It looks disturbed.

Not svelte (what a great word) and sexy, yet from the photo, the back seat doesn't look particularly spacious either. Compromised all the way around. It's performance had better be stellar...

And thus the good/sh1t balance is restored for another day. This really wipes out the smile that the LF-A shots put on my face. That looks like a whale with wheels. Seriously, do Porsche think that is a more appealing car than a Quattroporte or Rapide?

It doesn't matter how good this thing goes, there are much better looking rivals out there already and hopefully the next Jag XJR will render this car irrelevant. Sadly, too many people will buy for the badge alone

so true !
same for the cayenne
maybe it's an opponent of the cayenne, in a certain 'point de vue'


it still keeps me reminding of the bugatti 218, don't know why
