I can just see those white wheels scuffed after a few curb encounters

Personally I wasn't wowed by the design

Of all the nice Porsche wheel designs, those are ugly wheels

Thank you for sharing the photos Steve. I actually think it’s pretty ugly. It looks like the doors are dented and hyper muscles like a kids toy.

The cars of the 1960s were so much better looking. There are no small cars anymore.

I have to say those images are less impressive than the one I saw when it was first announced (which i thought was very good looking...below)

I am sure it is better in person. But from the pic I dont like how yhe front quarter panel integrates with the door. Looks like two different cars

Steve’s photos look like a Toyota Supra or something. A transformer robot. IMO. Ymmv.

I am not sure if the image i saw and posted above was an artists rendering...or whether the options/choices one makes can make that much difference...but the 2 cars DO look totally different to me. One is sleek, ultrafuturistic, like something out of Tron...the other like PeterA says, a really, REALLY ordinary white car.

The rendering shows the fuel panel moving forward to except the plug in. Door knobs panels everything is totally different including the rear end.

Who's really choosing this over a Singer 911?

As I said, I was not wowed by the look and I agree about the wheels

when I walked by talking to my wife I happened to glance at the front end and it reminded me of the Tesla model 3 and I was not sure what I was looking at until I walked around the car. It did nothing for me

He probably forgot to order the $1,000 optional sport door handles. :<)
