Oh crap, enough with the "you haven't seen it in person". It's not an amazing looking 911, personally I don't think it even qualifies as a 911. But that's just my opinion. If it was so awesome it wouldn't have an "I hate it thread".
Porsche is not the boutique car company I grew up with that produced these special little German machines. It's now a massive corporation that pumps out nice, throw away cars that are completely forgettable (excluding GT cars and 918 type stuff) after a couple years, just like BMW or Mercedes.
If you love it more power to you, go buy it. It's wonderful we all have so many cars to choose from.
Look at all the photos below. Do you need to see her in person to know you wouldn't date her?

My fave line from the Petrolocious vid. “There’s very little that is unnecessary on this car”. Sadly that no longer applies.

There’s an ‘I hate it thread’ because small minded individuals need a place to whine and vent. If you’re so broken up about Porsche drifting away from it’s roots, go out and buy a 1980’s 911 and see how much you like it. And while you’re at it, go full retro and stop using Google Maps for directions
and go back to paper maps. Let’s see how long that lasts.

Small minded? More like big hearted son. Btw, possessive form of 'It' does not use an apostrophe. Back to Reddit with you now.

Oh I get it now, your one of those full on retards who gets upset when someone doesn't like the car that you like. What's more small minded? Not liking a particular car or getting upset when a bunch of people you've never met don't like the car that you like?
Your coming across like an pompous, arrogant, millennial douche and you probably wouldn't survive if you had to rely on a paper map instead of your Facebook infused smartphone. The small minded individual is one who can't see elegance and purpose in something made a couple of generations ago and also believes that everyone should "think" as he does.

60s, 70s, 80s and early 90s 911s will have a much longer shelf life than this rear engined Panamera....end of story.
But as I said earlier if this car makes your heart flutter, buy it and enjoy it.

Maybe participate in the "I Love" thread and stop heckling here?? Just because you don't agree with someone doesn't make you right.

And neither does the plural of 1980.

Since we are correcting grammar on the Internet now, you forgot the comma before 'son'. lol

Like when you slow down to look at an accident on the other side of the road.

Of course, failure to capitalize LOL is the unmistakable mark of the n00b.
