Looks great, and could be interesting with a four cylinder. Not a fan of the cut line on the rear fender, or the bizarro tail lights/wing, but it does look 1000x better than the last, mildly warmed over version. Can't wait for someone to photoshop a roof on for the Cayman look.

It looks good, though I hope the rumors of a turbo I4 are greatly exaggerated.

The front fascia has a little bit of MR-S in it...

I don't like the spoiler-through-the-tail-lights idea, or the way the roof no longer tucks under the trunk (or whatever's going on there with that cloth-like area right behind the seats).

From that first image, it very MR2-ish, without the high ass... but it looks good.

I could be wrong but I think that is the baby Boxster.

Agreed, the Spyder was the best iteration of the whole series. I'd take a Cayman S over any of the other Boxster versions, but the Spyder was the perfect balance, better than the Cayman. A Spyder with a GT3 motor would be just about divine.

Wouldn't buy one but it does look better. The front end isn't much different but the side profile and rear end has been changed. I wonder what the interior is like. The new 911 has a really nice interior.

The car looks like a U. I'm sure its an optical illusion, but the front of the car looks like it curves up and so does the back. The front needs to be lower, but I'm guessing its a victim of the Euro pedestrian legislation. The squirrel says, "fuck them pedestrians for messing up my car designs".
