I think it looks the business overall although I find the rear lights a bit fussy.
Got an email from Porsche today and amongst other things like 'give us £3k and you can order one now' it says its 37cm longer than the previous model. That's a huge increase - hard to see where it all went in the pics though!

Really like it in silver and red - reminds me of a 550 or RS60 thumbsup

But... is VERY similar to a Ferrari California at the front - which is no bad thing, just not unique to Porsche.

That's a stunning looking car.

Really looking forward to seeing the Cayman now, hopefully they'll give it 350bhp and make a proper RS out of it - can't see me ever wanting another 911 if they do Very Happy

I am really liking the look of that new Boxster.

The rear/qtr panel profile is a work of art Thumb

Liking the 981 a lot. Very tempted. Would that mean I use the 993 even less? Oh dear...

I like that a hell of a lot. Would very much consider one to replace the 911 actually.

I'm just back from the local OPC having spec'd one up... I couldn't possibly trade the GT3 for one... Embarassed

Strange thing is that Sports Exhaust doesn't seem to be available which is odd, it's the only thing I wanted to add but couldn't. Maybe they'll announce a more hardcore version this year (Spyder?)

Oh, and not available to test drive until April. No matter how good a car looks I can't order one until I've driven it Surprised

How strange, neither myself nor the sales chap could see the sports exhaust on the showroom's configurator. Do you remember what the cost was? Actually I'm being lazy, will go have a look myself Thumb
