    Wow, Porsche is really making a nice transition with the additions of vehicles that are not your typical Porsche.

    its a shame they couldnt do a sedan with the 911 drivetrain layout with those rear mounted flat-6 engines, but i guess having the trunk up front would turn away most buyers

    Based on this spy shot I would tend to think Porsche would be better off sticking to 2 door sports cars.

    Holy Carp, a 4-door, I kinda like it though, from that side pic it kinda looks like a Aston Martin mixed with a Ferrari F430 front end.

    I'll take a Porsche sedan over a Porsche SUV any day. Looks hideous there, but it's just a prototype... I suspect it'll look really sharp in the end. This is probably just a mock-up to test the oh-so-important keyfob.

    I thought Porsche needed a partner (VW) to maintain cost & development control?
