Now thats a true car guy. Yes indeed, the Mercedes E500 was indeed produced by Porsche in the early nineties. It is undoubtedly the best E-Class ever! In fact the editor of Motor Trend also owns one.

hey cool, a four door Porsche seems a good idea. It will get them huge profits and then they'll get a faster and more powerful Carrera GT. Hey the Carrera GT engine, isnt it a Le Mans engine?

I feel Porsche will surely find success with the four door V8 . I just really cant wait for it to hit the road. Wonder what this German car manufacturer will come up with next? A hot hatch maybe

Cheers

it is a nice looking car (except for its back) but i dont know how much of a pick will it be, at more than 130,000$ it would cost more than S55, S600, 760li and I dont know if they will be able to provide the limo style lux inside while keeping the shape and everything else about it..

time will tell..

Hey CFS

it may cost that much but I dont think Porsche is gunning for luxury and enthusiasts who arent really concerned bout luxury may well go for it. How many times have u felt you could ride with some one in his exotic and couldnt so so since it had just 2 seats?

Cheers

You bet man so many time I have wished if my friend 355 or 360 had even a teeny weeny seat in the rear I could tag along with him since most of the time he has his business partner with him

I think more than the 4 door, they are considering the 2+2, I just read it in a mag that its definetly on the cards and 4 door is also being looked at. They are trying to position it as a competition to the 612 and the other in the class like may be CL65 etc..

The discussion was never about the Cayenne, but a rival 2+2 to the Scaligetti.
