I concur
Skill is, sucessfully tightrope walking across the Niagra Falls.
Intelligence is, having the sense not to do it.

why spend so much money to develop and build a 5 door car, then turn it into a coupe afterwards?!

It has the same humped back dog-taking-a-dump look as the Chrysler crossfire or whatever it is.

Apart from the 911 and the Carrera GT, Porsche havent built a good car since the 80's/early 90's.
They have lost the plot IMO.

But they've made a lot of money in that time.

I guess this is pretty much a 928 successor - rather than any 911 replacement. A good 911 replacement should be a mix of Carrera GT and 911 IMHO. Mid engined, 2 or 3 engine options and a bit harder edged than the Audi R8.

You've hinted at what it is, an hatchback.... Like the Golf is to the Jetta, this is to the Panamera....

Yet the 928 was meant to be the successor to the 911 . . .
I think something fishy is going on.
