Aston Martin did it again. Gorgeous car, and I am sure it will move as great as its looks are. However, I do not think Aston stands a chance of taking Porsche 911 piece of market share. I think Porsche simply outweighs Aston in volumes. Even if this car is only going up against the 911 Turbo, I think the next Turbo will be chasing after F430.

This car wont go up against the 911 Turbo.... the Supercharged version of this Aston (with ~500hp) will go up against the 911 Turbo.
