Ugliest car continued...

When I was young Porsche was a brand that my friends and I aspired to own, and we thought of them at the same level as Ferrari and Lamborghini.

I wonder if the youth of today have the same opinion of the marque.

I raise this question because the Porsche of today is quite different from the Porsche of 30 years ago.

Although the 911 is still strong, models like the Cayenne and the new Panamera have pushed Porsche well outside of its traditional market.

I saw my first Panamera in the flesh recently, and it is extremely ugly. Who does an ugly near two-tonne, five-metre-long car appeal to? Certainly not me, who as a child idolised models like the 928 and 911. I no longer think of Porsche in the league of Ferrari and Lamborghini, today I think more as a competitor to BMW and Mercedes-Benz.

It is hard to find a photo that shows how truly ugly this car is, you really need to see it in the flesh.
