The flared arches really let this design down, they’re just not right. If the front and rear axles were narrower (and the flares were sorted out) it wouldn’t make the proportions of this design look so cartoon-ish.

It could be a real looker IMO, if the proportions are sorted out.

The rear humps on a speedster should be smooth, round and aerodynamic in appearance even if in actual fact they aren’t.
This looks like it was styled by the Star Wars sequel design team.
Vents in the bumper too...they look like something from a TT.

Looks like a mass of design cues from past great Porsches thrown together and eureka! A 'classic' mess. Does look good one way.......away from it.

Probably because I never really liked the look of the 993 (996 was the first 911 I grew up with) I really like this. Looks like something out of Cyberpunk 77 but rendered properly. I love it.

Don't like the rear spoiler, the whale tail can't be beat and the wheels are not doing it for me. Else looks very nice.

Looks quite sleek, but I don't know why there is so little originality nowadays. A lot can be done with the basic 911 shape, so I don't see why they had to go to the past, especially for all that money. Thinking of all the undoubtedly considerable expenditure in engineering the thing, they scrimped on its styling. Same goes with the 250GT as featured in a recent article.
