2003 Porsche 996 Turbo

PostPosted: Wed Oct 07, 2009 4:22 pm    Post subject: I think the Panamera..... Reply with quote

Looks better in the flesh than it does in the photos ...

I had a good look round a couple in the OPC today, and IMHO, they look better than the photos lead you to believe,

Now I know the camera never lies (!!!!???), but I think they look longer than the pictures make you think, so the rear end doesn't look so out of place,

Just my observations, FWIW.

I think it is immense.

Next to a Maser Quattroporte it has none of that car's styling finesse or delicacy (I guess "elegance").

Although for all its dull heaviness, it probably won't share that car's mechanical fragility.

I too looked around one at Mayfair OPC. Conclusion? wouldnt touch one with a barge pole, ugly heavy disappointing design

Maser please or even better the Lambo Estoque.

Porsche have lost the plot, (since about 1999) when they started playing with H2O.

I cannot think of a car that is more colour sensitive. I saw a black turbo the other day that looked half respectable and saw a beige/gold one shortly after that looked just revolting.

My daily car is currently a CLS so I really should be their target audience, but it is just way too ugly for me to even consider. More Austin Ambassador than Porsche....
