The issue with the 996 was that it just looked cheap. That's probably because it was visually indistinguishable from baby Boxster. I like the three-dimensionality of the rear in the leaked shot. While I maintain that the facelift for the 718 was a step backwards — the integrated spoiler/taillight combo was/is awesome on the original 981 — I do like the text "hovering". That's a weird HMRBL though.
