The side profile is the best angle of the car. I kinda get ferrari/corvette influence from the design standpoint.
It'd be better if it were still mid/rear engined. Passengers probably wouldnt like that though ...

Man, I dunno what to think... I like the idea of a Porsche sedan (if for nothing more than to compete with the M5, Quattroporte, CTS-V and RS6), but that design is odd. It needs a longer rear deck...that looks is fine on a 911, Boxster or Cayman, but it's goofy on a sedan.. And in the profile view, I almost see a bit of....Chrysler Sebring or Dodge Avenger in it...mainly due to the way the curve of the c-pillar clashes with the clearly defined beltline and hard edges in the body lines and vents behind the front wheels..

Porsche engineers all need enemas after that bloviated attempt.

Looks like the bastard child of a Cayman, a Touareg and a Crossfire.

I thought I saw a little Chrysler Crossfire in the back...

It's like some kind of cross between a crew cut and a mullet.
It looks great head-on, but everything else is a mess. Kinda like the Cayenne. And I hate to say this because I'm a Porsche fanboy :(
I like the Lamborghini Estoque a lot better, hopefully they put it into production.

i guess, i too would rather have a cayman. of course a 997 is win.

The egg-shaped Porsche always has been attractive on coupes. Trying to incorporate it to a sedan fails. The front end could work but making a car that long ending in a hatchback just doesn't work. Maserati and Lamborghini just schooled Porsche in the 4 door category...

I hate the Cayman/Boxster rear end influence. Ugh. But overall, not a bad looking piece.
I agree with Gary, the Estoque is a better looking car.

rs6 would still eat them alive.

Agreed that porsche shouldn't be making a sedan, but its less of a disgrace than the suv they are making. I like everything but the back, that really ruins it, almost looks like a wagon.

That rear quarter view makes it look like a 4-door crossfire.

German G35 Sedan ?That is an insult to the G35. At least the G35 is well proportioned...
