In the distant realms of my automotive fantasy mind, I was sort of contemplating a move into the GT4 and early renders like this one had me aesthetically interested...

But I have to say that the production version is not my cup of tea and while I appreciate performance wise it might be awesome, I would not buy one based on looks alone. I have always appreciated cleaner over more busy and the wing, and side scoops are a little too busy for me.

If it looked like the render minus the rear wing....I might have been motivated by both looks and performance...

Not sure why the render gave you hope. The final product ended up being remarkably close to the render. The main difference is the side scoop. You knew a GT car was going to have a rear wing after all!
yah you got me on the rear wing, though I guess in the render the black painted portion makes it less visible, but I also see differences in the front spoiler, rake and yes the side scoops are really not doing it for me

I love the wing. I was looking for a wing ever since purchasing my 981S Boxster and nothing out there seemed right. This one does. Hope they sell it. Or copy it.

Is the front different? I'd have to pull up the actual pics to be sure, but from memory as I look at that render the only difference seems to be the side scoops and the mirrors. I think the new mirrors are neat and the side scoops probably pop right off if you don't like them. The wing could be painted any colour you like.

I like it too. IMHO - the wing is smokin'.
If I was not an open air Boxster guy I would be thinking about exactly what kind of a hit on depreciation I would be taking by trading in my current 981 right about now.

Are you kidding me? I can’t even tell the difference between the render and the press release pictures... :taunt:

I agree the wing is more of an RS version than a GTx car. And the side scoops are ugly, but the front of the GT4, the exhaust note and horsepower are enough to sleep-walk me to the dealer.

I think the car looks awesome! It really does. Better looking than the GT3. And the price....! I'm still shocked at how low it is for a low production model. Porsche could have gotten a lot more coin for this car. I'm excited about this car.

The wing is the best part of the car, I wish it was an option for the 981 Cayman. I'm a fan of fixed wings, not too crazy about the retractable spoiler on the current Cayman.

The production version looks pretty close to the rendering if you ask me.

I love the way the GT4 looks. Gorgeous looking car with top notch specs at a reasonable price. I wish I have 200K USD to spare for one (that's the listed price in Hong Kong)
