My favorite line.

Purrty nose.
Doors unlocked guys! Very similar to the 991s. The nubbin is all that gives me pause.

There is a color board of the familiar on-line offerings. It's really cool to be here with almost no one to trip over.

Phefner, did you hear the Acura security guy yelling at people for going to look at the new NSX? He said something to the effect "Hey, you guys got passes to the wrong event!". I had to a little. I'm like, "Hey, were are car guys here!".

As I continue my Auto Show journey this morning, came across this neat display of Vettes. Be super cool if Porsche did similar on the 911 heritage. They do have a streaming video which does this which is great because you can see the dimension difference between generations. One chap I chatted with has a 911 from the Air Cooled generation and his only comment gripe is the 911 is too big now.

YUP!

The color-board that Phefner posted was a cool touch, but, truth be told, that's right were the Garrett's Popcorn was, and I was completely distracted.

OK so back to the Porsche area and another look. IMHO without looking at dimensions, it seems like there is a little more room in the frunk. And if your maybe 5'8", there is enough headroom in the back.

LOL I missed that. I think the display was being worked on and they were setting up for a recording.

Been told #1 question being asked is will the GT4 have a big NA 6. #2 question is will there be a manual offered.

Well, even the Mustang GT 500 has gone away from it's classic shifter with the dial.




I still prefer a PDK style interface and whilst I don't typically use it to manually shift; it does serve as a contact point when normally driving.
