    I agree! Very close to the z07. If you look at the seam/break in the roof, it looks like the previous z4 coupe. The rear quarter window does have some curve in the bottom that the bmw doesn’t.

    Not that I’ve ever seen, and that’s a lot. I’ve owned/own 5 Porsches going back to 07, never once. My oldest current is a 2010… nothing.
