I really hope the spoiler of the Turbo model makes the rear look a little better...

Hmmm.....the first pic does look good....!

Anyway, not to worry....Like Cayenne, this thing is going to sell like hot cakes over here. I swear, I see so many Cayenne's and X6 over here that I think to myself "Hey, did a new cab company with X6 and cayenne's as their vehicles open here or what?" I'm not saying it's a bad car but people in the Gulf love SUV's. Especially due to the cheap oil prices ($1.75 per gallon)

Porsche is trying really hard to get the market for luxury sedan. Compare this to the CLs or 650 or bigger S class the choice is obvious. cLS LOOKS better S class is gonna be more comfortable and 650 or even M6 are probably gona be cheaper than this. Don't think its gonna sell well.

Although the looks aren't all that great in pictures, I have a feeling it is going to be a sedan that is a joy to drive.

Yep, has strong resemblance to the EB 112: http://www.fast-autos.net/vehicles/B...2_Concept/1449

I just hope there's a front-mounted V8 coupe in the future. I loved the 928's since we use to have one (sadly it was auto).

The end of the car in 3/4 view looks like a Cayenne, the original Porsche culprit

While I'm not crazy about the back end of the Porsche, it's no where near as bad as the hidious Aztec. The Aztec looked hidious from every angle. On the Porsche it only looks bad from the back end, IMHO.

I don't have to be a car designer to know what I like and what I don't like. I've never liked the back end of the current 5 or 7 and I'm entitled to my opinion even without being an expert in car design or a car designer.

My opinion is not ignorant, he was in charge of the 5 and 7 design for the current models with the butt ugly trunks.

Don't knock my opinion.

Wow, that thing gets progressively uglier as you go from front to back.

The rear quarter panel and back look horrible.
