    The gaping maw look is awful,no matter who does it.

    What's with German auto manufacturers actively trying to screw up normalcy? Idunno how many decades of classy kidney grilles now suddenly dropped in favor of Ohmygawditshideous. Change the grille and the 4-series concept is a beautiful car. BMW already diluted the ///M brand something fierce, which was bad enough.

    And Porsche... how dare you use the word Turbo for your Taycan EV. Words mean things. A turbo is an actual thing, not a vague concept of something powerful. Damn alternative facts.

    I'm really GetOffMyLawn about this but it's true and it pisses me off!

    Seriously? They're using Turbo like Sport or GT or Z28 or Twister Special? That's seems almost insulting to their customers if so. They aren't selling Hondas or Chevies or Rascal scooters. Their customers are car enthusiasts!

    Nice rant, by the way.

    (I wonder who we'd have to ask for a smilie like that for this forum in blue, to match the others here)

    I was watching a YouTube channel's video preview of the Taycan and they reminded me that consumer electronics have been using "turbo" to describe their high powered/temporary boost mode for years, so it's a bit of full cycle silliness.

    Lexus must be feeling great, they're no longer making the ugliest looking front ends (other than the LC500) in the luxury segment, thanks BMW!
