    Well, duh!!

    What have you thought all your life, that Porsche was an art project with goverment funding or a charity?

    Porsche was started AS A BUSINESS because Dr. Ferry Porsche wanted a) to put food on the table for his family in a very difficult economic environment and 2) because he wanted to do meaningful work.

    As a successful automotive designer, of course he would start a business making cars. And he wanted to build not just cars, but a COMPANY that would employ people, advance engineering and grow.

    And now YOU resent them making business decisions? Please!

    The best possible world for enthusiasts is for Porsche to be strong as a company. In this market, that means a diversification into other models, there is no way around that. But note: the diversification is true to the Porsche 'brand promise' which is that the vehicles will be excellent in design and performance, best in class in handling and quality.

    This is true today of the Boxster. This is true of the 996. This is true of the Cayenne. This is certainly true of the Carrera GT. And this will undoubtedly be true of the fourth model.

    So chill!

    Re: 4th model line.



    Dain's posts can be quite entertaining ... when he's properly inspired!

    Thanks, Gary.

    Re: 4th model line.

    I really dont think it will looks like that. But every pic I have seen on this car it has looked like a 4-door CGT or 4-door 911. Atleast I hope that it will be more different from the CGT and 911. If it is ever produced...

    Calling SOCAL HOOSIER!!!

    Hey, where's SOCAL HOOSIER in all of this? He's the guy who's actually seen the proposed car at the factory focus group.

    We need to get him together with Farina.

    Yeh, he does seem to have gone underground.

    Did he suddenly remember that he'd signed some kind of confidentiality agreement somewhere along the line, or something?
