I don't think anyone would mistake that for a 911.

Check out the rear profile >.<

It's like an Audi TT + 911 melded together.

The only thing would be the back end - and it looks more like a crossfire than a 911

911...no. PT Cruiser...yes.

It's like a mix of a New Beetle, Jetta, and PT Cruiser. Front end is ugly. I guess it's at least better than the last one. The New Beetle is possibly one of the worst cars I've ever driven.

(by New Beetle, I mean previous generation since that's technically what it was called)

You people have no imagination, I definitely see the 911 in it, from that angle at least.

they both have round headlights and a similar hood line, but the similarities end there. it looks way more like the original bug than anything else, which i think is fucking awesome.

Yeah my friend has an immaculate '67. Love that thing. Being a fan of modern car design, I couldn't be any happier with the mix they've got going on with old styling cues and current surfacing techniques.

Scrape the badge off and yes, people could seriously mistake it for a 911 at first glance.
