Griz, what don't you like about it? The shape or the color? (sorry DJ, just had to do it!)

I'd own it if I could afford to buy it. That car's shape would grow on my quickly.

It always looked like an overgrown jet ski to me. I'm glad the only thing that made it into production was the super targa sunroof roof.

It definitely hints at the 993 and the targa in particular. Obviously a thrown together styling exercise. It looks a bit "kit car" now.
