Hmm, not sure what to say, but if I could afford it, I it sure would make loading my two offspring in the back

Now correct me if I am wrong. But does not Porsche equeal mid life crises? And during a mid life crises I think that the last thing that one wants is the wife and the kids in car when driving.

I remeber when my dad bought a 300CD. He main reason was to have a car to take with him that did not fit my mom, and all us five kids.........

So to be blunt: Why get a 4 door Porsche - seems to defeat the purpose!

Stand corrected.

But still do the wife and kids come with the car?

Absolutely. Also, why does it seem that almost no car maker can prosper without producing across the entire market spectrum? Even if they can't, I don't see a vehicle like this paying its own way.

I will bet flamed for this but the only modern Porsche I like is the Cayenne. Although Porsche AG is the most profitable auto manufacture on the planet, I think the 911 design is just plain tired, but then again it's also the most successful design ever so I guess I'm the black sheep.

I donít like the lines of the new 928; Why not revive the original model. I like my 928 euro better, even with its 310HP engine.

White is the absence of color, I first though of putting on flames, but I settle for the Porsche log

FWIW, you're not alone...I don't really know why, but Porsches never appealed to me. I guess I wasn't ever really interested in the small, fast sports cars...

My dad had 928's from the first model to the S4 and loved them maybe now that I'm an old man now too I think a 928 would be a good car for me.

If Porsche brought back the original 928 it surely would be priced well over 100K, which puts it in company with used 550 maranellos and 456m's and choosing between either of those and a Porsche would be one of the easiest desisions a guy could make.
