There is nothing wrong with this car apart from the idiotic "Turbo" and "Turbo S" names.

Otherwise it has the "4 door Porsche " look that the Panamera somehow never managed to accomplish, and an attractive interior, even if I will never be a fan of a "HVACs" touchscreen over some nice buttons....

I sincerely hope that you can order it without the "turbo" badges....

It's by no means a bad looking car, but it's still sad to see how watered down it seems to be compared to the Mission-E concept.

Agreed. Visually as well as specs wise as well.

I think they stayed extremely close to the concept. The suicide doors were never going to happen. Headlights are a nice evolution for the brand (wonder if it'll carry across).

I despise the Turbo nameplate, but whatever.

That said, they're not slaying any Tesla's at that price point...

Why does the car even have turbo as a model? O_o Weird choice by porsche.

While it is watered down from the concept, it still looks better than the panamera in profile, and reminds of that old old 90s 4 door sedan concept.

Did Porsche dare build a car better than the 911?

yes, it's called Cayman. But it's been neutered with 4 bangers.
