Kris, this is actually quite a profound statement.

Being that Porsche is now such a huge and financially profitable company, like Honda, it now has to produce cars that appeal to the largest number of unimaginative, workaday consumers. Ironically, for the sake of continued massive profits and sales, it cannot afford to alienate any customer except one; it's core enthusiasts (like us) which now make up a small portion of it's sales unlike when it was a smaller company. Hence, bland styling, which doesn't offend anyone, appeals to the joe country-cluber and females just enough to let people know the have a 'Poorsh', but is not too 'testosteroned' or 'threatening' (read feminine), ie; doesn't make any of us go 'wow'

But hey, that's what tuners are for and why we build the cars we do here.
