    You may yet be in for a pleasant surprise.

    I've never yet known a car company that uses its concept model in an infotainment screen of its production model. I could be wrong and this could be the first time, but I hope Porsche will surprise me.

    This is why I mod my cars.

    My M3 started as this:

    and, now it looks like this:

    I've always felt that cars from the factory are like a semi-blank canvas. There's ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS room for improvement, and it's really fun to let your creativity flow.

    One of the greatest pleasure I personally get from being an enthusiast is knowing that I'm going to be completely changing the look of the car, so that it's unique to me.

    Nice :) Widebody cars get a lot of flack for whatever reason, but I think a lot of that comes from cars with no power that go wide. A properly built motor in a beastly looking car is absolute awesomeness in my eyes.

    Hmmm...going wide on the Taycan...hmmmmm...

    Yep........understood.........I've had new Porsche's cut-up by good tuners in Germany after leaving Zuffenhausen.......but the 'bodies' looked good from the jump and they weren't 4-door sedans.
    To each his own....the car only has to pull your chain.

    Not really, I have said in other posts I am still on the fence and waiting to see the Taycan in person before I decide either way.

    Yeah same here. Definitely not against it, but I am certainly apprehensive now.
    My deposit will still remain until I see the final product.
    It might be a petty thing to say: looks are very important to me for this car.

    Nothing petty about wanting to spend your hard earned money on what looks good to you !
    I took $200 and started cutting grass with my brother. 20 years later we were bought out of both locations. Thinking back at 2 decades and the challenges I also want what I want for my money. Or I'll wait till someone gets it right in my mind
