When people risk their lives, shouldn't it be for something very important?
Well, it better be.
But what is so important about driving faster than anyone else?
Lots of people go through life doing things badly. Racing's important to men who do it well.
When you're racing, it's life. Anything that happens before or after is just waiting.

That is gorgeous. Simply beautiful.


Does anyone know if Porshe has assigned a number to the Cayman Boxster or to this new bad boy?

A four door Porsche.

Ferdinand is now rolling over in his grave.

...again

I dunno, I sort of agree that it cheapens the sporty image of Porsche but if they make a real contender for the M5, etc. then you make rethink it. I'm sure on a profitability standpoint it will definately help out Porsche which is what they are more concerned about.

I've heard a lot of speculation about Cayenne V8 powered ideas. I guess this is the beginning of all that stuff about the new model line. I just hope Porsche doesnt turn into Mercedes.

PS: Notice the top picture would be suicide doors like the RX-8 and if you picture the door opening that way, any person inside would get hit with the part of the door towards the rear of the car. No chance that is an accurate drawing. They should have put the handle on the other side of the door. Unless it was gullwing or Lambo style?

Why does every photochop look like a stretched 911?

Not bad

I like the red one better. I am more of a traditionalist and would prefer the normal reverse right hand swing on the doors than having the doors like Mazda or the old Continental . Design wise is interesting. Lets see where Porsche goes with the design and possible production of the car.
