Insanely fast. Unbelievably dangerous and tricky to drive. Anal levels of engineering and computer control. Totally uncool and id have one tomorrow

**** the bed! There's a car I share Gaz's views on!

I like old 911s but pretty much everything made since they ditched the original shape has left me cold, until they started putting GT2 & 3 badges on them. They are incredibly uncool but I'd love one.

Your English leaves a bit to be desired - I don't know how you think s-t-u-n-n-i-n-g is the correct spelling for 'average', and you've failed to realise 'great' is not a synonym for 'like Germans trying to be exciting'.

This Porsche may look slightly better than a few of their recent revisions, but it's still seriously uncool.

If it aint broke dont fix it. Porsche have the aerodynamics on the 911 practically perfrect, and have pretty much since ther first one.

I've always loved 911's and still do. Amazing cars but you just know you'll look like a knob driving one. The GT2 is one of the few hairy chested, scary to drive supercars around currently. Not cool but definitely in my fantasy garage

I would like any 911 and not being a purist any that does not have a Beetle engine in.
That just makes it uncool.

What he said

One of my favourite cars, and one day she will be mine, but it's just not cool.
