For those wanting AWD, I'm sure the CS will have that option.

The CSL is supposed to be a lightweight version and an easy way to lose 100 lbs is to lose the AWD hardware up front.

Based on the oversteer out of some of the corners that was quickly caught, I doubt that car was AWD.

Roll cage basically makes it a two seater, in which case just get a 911.

Looks a hair lower, but could be optics with a splitter, but I think the wheels were set further in the wells.

I don't care for that rounded winglet on the deck lid. I like the look of the flat one much better.

The real question is whats the motor and suspension mods.

That driver was pushing the car, fighting on turn in and track out of the corners close to the grip limit..Looked fast.

Clear oversteer correction here:

I think it looks okay. It is a good option for those that canít get a 911 GT3 allocation or a Cayman GT4 RS or any other GT Porsche allocation.

Something being new doesn't automatically make it better.

You guys are just upset that you bought a car that 80% of the enthusiast community finds ugly. Keep trying to justify it, desperation is an bad look.

Not really. It's just a group think thing at this point. The car is not ugly in person.

I've seen it in person and it's not any better. Honestly I want to like it, I'm a huge BMW fan. The engine is undeniably great. But the design is a Frankenstein. It's not just the grille. The entire car lacks congruity.

There is no way you can say that in good faith. I get approached literally daily from people who think the car looks amazing.

Car is amazing in person, I am a long term huge BMW fan and at first the grill scared me a bit but then it started growing on me, and the day I first saw it in person looked so menacing and aggresive that now I do love it.
I can understand someone could not like it but far away from being a "Frankenstein" design.
IMHO.

damn just drive whatever you like, I will never understand this discussions.

If someone doesn't like the new design they can stick with the F8x or change brand, where is the issue?

Some like it, some don't. Was always like this and will always be like this no matter which car/design

I think all the CS even the CSL variants will be AWD only, i know its heavier but with that kind of power G8X have, AWD will definitely be a lot faster on track and as well as in any conditions.
