I just saw the TV ad and they said "The first true sports car for four".

K, the NA 2+2 ain't a Porsche, but it IS a sports car, no?

And weren't there quite a few other European "sports cars" for four?

They must mean other 4 seat sports cars have been made, but they don't count because they aren't "true" sports cars.

I personally think it looks like a cross between a G35 sedan and Porsche Cayman.

and about the 2+2 being a 4 passenger... looks to me more like a "take your kids with you in your sportscar" kinda seats =P

There is a Top Gear episode where they drive and review Porsche's "4 door sports saloon" (sedan). I think that they're aimimg that "The first true sports car for four" statement/comparison towards sedans. But, if that's the case, what about the BMW M5? It's a very capable sports car even in sedan trim. I'm sure there are several others.

I think the G35S or G37 are about as sporty as you can get outside a true sports car, except that you cannot get them in a 5 speed, at least to my knowledge. Over 300 HP is powerful too. Maybe I'm just too old fashioned for the paddle shifter which, admittedly, is pretty fast.

I know BMWs have always been high performing sports sedans, especially the M models, but they've always been so expensive to buy and then to repair, partially due to the exchanged rate. I remember back when the BMW CEO was asked,"Why do your charge so much..." he replied, "because we can," or something to that effect.

what about that maserati 4 door? ITs just another ugly Porsche they are trying to market to idiots. The thing is hideously ugly. looks like a cayenne had sex (incestual) with a caymen and the resulting Panamera is the abandonded on a homeless shelter door step ******* offspring. Maybe im being a little brutal? but the thing looks like a pile of crap.

I don't think the Panamera looks that bad, but it doesn't have the same appeal to me as a 911 GT2, that's for sure. In any case there are plenty of 4-seat sports cars, but I'm sure the author's intent was meant to say that maybe the addition of rear doors makes it a sports car made to seat 4, as opposed to a sports car than CAN seat 4 (like a 300ZX 2+2, etc)

I'd take the M5 hands down...

if you're gonna take 5 people you need a sedan... a sports car was meant for a couple... PERIOD.

Either guy/girl, husband/wife, father/son, mother/daughter etc... and if the whole family wants to go out and have fun in a sports car... take both of your Z's with you! share the fun of driving!

I hate the idea of the "incestual abandonded on a homeless shelter door step ******* offspring"!

Amen!

Plus the weight of four people in the car will make a huge difference in power and handling. Did they base performance characteristics off of the assumption of four people in the car? Or two? two people could change the weight of the car by three to four hundred pounds!

I can feel a huge difference will just one additional person in the car, forget three!

The statement should of been "The first true LUXURY sports car for four" since its in the higher price point category.
Then again, a sports car is considered a 2-door, so Porsche can't make the claim either way. Its a Sedan no matter how you put it.

I think they are referring to the fact that it is a 4-door.

Ferrari California has been out a while it seats 4 and is a high end sports car and it Makes the Porsche look like a lack of innovative design after thought.

I see your point. It's just what they consider to be clever marketing.
