I'm not a fan of cabrio

Even Dr. Ferry Porsche decided to introduce cabriolet due to the market demand... not his philosophy... at least that's what I read from a p-car history book, IIRC

an S/C'ed Targa would be a better choice. I don't like the rag top....

I like Cabriolets but not Porsche. I'm looking to get a 1989 560sl soon, a very classy look. 2003 Jags are hot just not P cars.

Haven't read the specs... but isn't that counter productive to what a Turbo is supposed to be? I may rag on it... but I'd still sport one (if it was given to me).

I love the 560sl...I might get one for my wife as a summer car...esp 1989 the last model year.

Given the rear engine placement of the Porsche, it will be impossible for them to come up with space for the hard top. Not that I don't want one, but both the performance and design pose a major challenge (it will be immensely tail heavy)
