i saw a clip of the new porshe on the News and it looks hot!!! It looks like a Porshe and a Lambo had a baby. 0-60 in 4.3! 200+mph and a sticker price estimates 250,000 - 300,000. Anyone have any weblinks to it? I'd love to find out more

One word to describe them, CRAZY. I really don't think anyone is going to spend that much money buying a Porsche when they can get a Ferarri 550 or Lambo. And the thing is that you can probably get to that much power by doing something to the 911 turbo, so why bother spending another $100000?

You find it ugly? In what respect? I understand you can have your opinion but I was curious what you didn't like about it....I think it looks pretty damn sweet

I've never been attracted to the way Porsches look (past & present) with the exception of the Porsche 928GTS. I find other exotics more attractive than this very highline porsche. To me it looks like something Speed Racer or Batman would drive... It's not my cup of tea as far as style...

I think edgier styling is more fitting for an Exotic (Lotus Esprit, Lamborghini Diablo, Ferrari models). I know that edgier styling is much less efficient but personally I find it more attractive and "exotic" looking..

I never liked any of the porsche until the 996 turbo. But if I have the money to spend of a $200K car, I would rather buy the Ferarri. I just don't consider Porsche to be in the same catagory.

I've got sorta conservative taste.

I think it's gorgeous, albeit way beyond my league. And to tell ya the truth, if I had that kind of money I still won't spend it on a f**king car. I love cars, but I'm not insane. There's many poor people out there that could use some food and shelter, I'd rather give it to them.
Comon Porsche, $300K??? Are you outta yer mindd?!?!
It looks nice though...I'd add it to my dream car list.

As I said on the Contour Forum, I'd rather buy an MR2 Spyder and a beach house with a garage to put it in. I'd be short 400 ponies, but I'd have a freaking HOUSE!!!

The picture makes a nice background on this computer, tho.

Totally agree!!!!! Yes, in a way it does look different, but to me it just looks a little bit generic......a little bit of everything thrown together......
