That i can agree with. Porsche has done some neat stuff, but it seems like they are running the same plays every time. While they work, it just interesting to see companies like Honda, Nissan, GM, etc bring cars to the market that are light years beyond their normal products. Its kind of like, I expect Porsche to keep upping the bar, instead they kinda keep the bar in place until the absolutely necessary to raise it. How long did it take Porsche to come up with variable cam timing? How about 100hp per litre, NA? Decent fuel efficiency? Water cooling? I could go on.

I love Porsche, especially after taking apart a 69 Vette this weekend, but I kinda wonder where they stopped being PORSCHE and became just another car company.
