So the 550 and Carrera GT aren't real Porsches?Transcend said:I still consider "real" Porsches to be those that stick to the RR layout and 2 door coupes (basically 911 series). But Porsche wants a bigger piece of the pie, can't blame them for trying.marc said:It would make sense to beancounters, but not purchasers
People spending $100,000+ want a "real" Porsche
sure, a few poseurs won't care - but the purists will **** their pants.
Historically Porsche and Audi have always worked together to develop "new stuff" for each other. So I wouldn't be surprised if they chopped the roof off the A8 chassis, made the roofline lower and use different body panels for the exterior.
