I like the side air intake gills. Also noted the use of the yellow caliper covers.
Good lines overall...wonder when we'll see road test results.

Very nice from the back, not so from the sides I think!


Cool photos, Porsche will be ripped when they hear about it.

You saw it HERE ON 986FORUM first!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I do not like the look and feel of the new shift knobs Porsche has designed for their new cars. Reminds me of the nasty round one I yanked out of my 1997 the second I found one on Ebay with which to replace it.

It definitely has a profile problem, and the front foglights look too trendy for me. The air intakes now look like Porsche is copying Hyundai rather than Toyota though.

the rumor is they are shooting a commercial in LA right now.

I really dig the side and back. I don't care for the front and interior at all.

THose are the ceramic GT3 brakes with the yellow calipers. Molto dinero!

The more I see this car the more I'm convinced that this will be the new flag ship of Porsche sports cars.
Once they retire the GT3 SuperCup you'll be sure to see this car onthe track racing.

I love the body style. I would really go for it if the pointy head were flattened out somewhat, a la speedster. I edited the side view with this in mind... now how do I upload an image? Lets see if this works

no these photos are in Germany.
The LA sightings haven't revealed any pics yet. If you live near Westwood keep your digital camera handy if they haven't already finished shooting the commercial.

I don't get the bubble top at all. Now they can't even put a sunroof in it.

They should've made it a notchback. It's too 911/Bug/TT/Crossfire looking. A notchback would've made it look a little more Boxster, which we all know is badass looking.

Whoever designed the wheels should have their ass kicked.

The side vents look even worse than the 987.

The rear quarter panel that goes down at a 45 degree angle doesn't work on the 987 and doesn't work here either.

Rear quarter windows should've been a little longer.

Foglights are lame. 987 front end looks better.

Ugly interior with even uglier steering wheel. Nice square glovebox. LOL.

Performance-wise, it'll kick ass. But looks-wise, it doesn't move me at all.

Gill & Foglight Deletion

I think the car looks cool. Here are a couple revisions. Lose the gills and shift inlet back and up slightly, and 86 the foglights -as such...
