Actually, tehy tried seveal tomes (914/6, 924, 928, 944, 968), all of which were more or less great engineered, looking more or less good, but all had one problem: people didn't buy them, they kept buying the 911. And Porsche got into serious finacial trouble with this trying. The car to save them was actually the 996 Carrera and the Boxster, bot very traditional in many ways....
This looks great as all old 911s, but honstly it's a perfectly restored and upgraded old 911 (there exist similar projects for old Jags, Astons and teh Citroen DS), so in my eyes not really a new car. Lovely, sure, but I doubt I would pay 275k $ for one....
