Love the pictures; thanks! I do wish Porsche would have showed up more

I would have loved to see a debut of the 718 GT4 or new 992 Turbo.

Thanks for pics, Alex.

I too am rather disappointed in Porsche. Would have like to have seen the new GT4 or Spyder

Obvious from GIMS this year that much of the industry is rapidly switching to electrification, if not fully, at least hybridization. I wouldn’t say ‘peak car’, but rather ‘peak combustion engine’.

Super cars need electric to keep getting ever faster (both AML and Ferrari alluded to hybrid turbo V6s for the future), while normal city cars need electric to meet ever stringent emissions (especially now that diesel is paractially dead). Cars are evolving right before our eyes.

+1 to that.

Thanks for posting the pics & thank God for the 911.

Thanks Alex for your writeup and great pics. Interesting that you had the same vibe from within, that this year appears to have from afar.

A few more from today... #peakcar is the unpopular trending topic here though.. it just reeks of Great Gatsby selling, with vendors looking for the actual buyer. The inside info on each company's finances, future plans, secret buyback programs, conflicts... oooof, one could write a book. Better to just sip the espresso, drink the Dom, and just enjoy the beautiful lines. Something nasty is coming.. buy the cars to drive not to show off, that's all their worth, which is A LOT.. (just maybe not as much as they want you to think).

Also yea, i tend to take detail shots as all the magazines probably have the big panning ones. Also because I enjoy finding cool angles.
Also bc iPhone

Ps: how cool is that carbon chassis RUF?... oooooh ehhh.. sublime
