I agree with both of you.

I think it's time for porsche to change design. It's getting uglier and uglier. Same thing for so many years, boring

I just bought my second P-car last month. Now I have one that's 15 years old and one that's one month old. They have a similar iconic shape that's instantly recognizable yet both are very different. Plus their driving experience is so unique between the two yet with certain appreciated similarities. Both are 911 variants but both are like owning totally different cars. Different personalities from the same family roots. Changing the design would spoil that very unique familial connection.

If you don't like the design, then it's not for you. If you don't understand what I just said above, then it's definitely not for you.

Excellently Stated My Dear Friend. Ferry would be very proud of you.
FYI in the last few years Porsche has introduced several other cars Never done in their history such as Cayenne and Panamera. Ferry is probably kicking and screaming in his grave knowing that his beloved brand now has an suv and 4 door sedan. As for the 911 it has and always will be a 911.

Hmm where do I start? First of all I am NObody. However I've been very very blessed to meet, know and make friends who are somebody. God knows me better than I know myself so he's only allowed me BMWs for now. Maybe once I'm more mature He will finally put a Pcar in my path. If so yeah, if not so be it. Life is more than just cars if U wish to know I have an excellent story to tell you of a very good friend I have, how we met and why we met. You ought to see his collection and very humble guy at that.

Invite for Pcar event was by another good friend of mine with an excellent Pcar collection as well. He knows people in Stuttgart, I've only seen pics of that place and probably as close as I will ever get to it. Don't really care for any exotics other than Porsche (and Lambo) could care less for Ferrari.

I'm working on taking pics of my personal rides but today's weather messed up my wife's ride so it will have to wait. Once pics are done I'll shoot you the link...you'll see i'm just as normal as everyone else in here. Sorry bro no superman here just a plain ole Tomato of Average Intelligence

If you're familiar with the 911 shape then none of them look all too similar. They've done a great job making each generation look cleaner and more well-proportioned.

So tired of people asking for Porsche to change the 911 drastically. It's not gonna happen. If you don't like it then go look at something else.

I'm sure I shot it while at track too will have to do a search and find it somewhere. Personally pics don't do the Spyder any justice you'll have to see it up close to really appreciate it. I definitely like it but with the non race seats of course as it gets really old climbing in and out of especially in a garage same as GT2. I'd go either white or red stay away from black as the Spyder has way too many sexxy curves to hide them in black.

I saw a white one in person for the first time the other day and it took me by surprise - absolutely stunning. I bet it's even better to drive on a twisty road than it is to look at.
