Nice car. A bit homosexual though.

What's with the drag coefficient of JUST 0.31? That's quite awful, considering the E and the old S were in the 0.2x range.

I just cant stand the porsche cabrios, they are the ugliest thing created by man..just plain ugly, on the other hand the coupe version looks rather nice(Turbo, GTX or a regular one with some aero)

Dunno what u guys think but at the first glimpse it looks more like new vw beetleish. So if someone calls it a homosexual then i wont disagree with that as i dont think any man would wanna drive a beetle resembling car.....love other porsche but this didnt do the same as others did to me.

Porsche coupe looks much more meaner.

What are you guys talking about.. The car looks good to me??
What points are you considering to call it gay??
If the same car were to be found in one of the supercars in India Thread i will bet all the guys on the forum will be drooling over it..

Hey godfather everyone's opinion is different,bet you knew that already. I dont doubt about the performance of this machine but if i had a choice i d go for coupe version anyday. For me it doesn't have the looks of a mean supercar...it definitely would have the performance but i would like a car to look tough as well as perform. This juss doesnt cut it.

You like it thats fine mate.I aint forcin my point of view on any one here.
As far as droolin is concerned I wont be joinin the crowd.......just not my thing.

convertibles should have a long bonnet otherwise they don't look good IMO, this looks odd

also all the Porsches look good due to the classic roofline, here there's no roof
