IMO, this is the angle that matters the most. Wait until the magazines put this car next to the Aston Martin Rapide and Mercedes CLS...I can't believe I'm saying this, but it'll look worse!

I know, but regardless of what they're for, it's too many. Most magazine have been criticizing the Germans for years about how many buttons they put in their cars...this one takes it to a whole new level.

I'm with you...my dad had a 1967 Corvette Stringray...pure driving bliss. I wish we could go back to the old days when cars weren't so complicated.

OMFG, say it ain't so!!!

VW just shouldda started a branch-off company to release these bastardizations of the Porsche name.

A bit of a sad day in motoring... I mean, im sure its fast, and its kickass, but thats not the point: they're selling out, plain and simple.

And if you look at the interior of the new Audi S4 it has more buttons, switches, and what not that this porsche.

Don't get me wrong because I am looking for a mid eighties 911 for a new track car when I get rid of my 350z. but for just cruising around and taking the wife out to dinner or shopping if this comes in AWD I will be all over it.

Would you like variable settings on your snowboard like 15 different pop settings or flex for stiff to soft? No?

Getting RID of your Z? I have a 2004 Z-R Enthusiast. Now THIS you have to explain. Why would you get rid of such a delicious car? Unless you have an '03. Then I completely understand.

No, I wouldn't. I have no use for little fiddly bits. I'm not a competitor and all that silly stuff has very little effect except for people who are serious racers.

I wouldn't mind different settings. It has more use than just for serious racers. If the conditions are pow, make it stiff and rigid for pow surfing. If it's hard packed and you want to hit the park, and you can adjust it to be softer that's great also. Nice to find a board with both attributes instead of buying different boards for different conditions. I'd buy a versatile board like that that. 15 a bit far fetched, but you grasp my analogy.
