Do you remember when the Porsche 997 came out? Do you remember the sense of relief?
It was finally a 911 that looked like the 911s you most loved, finally rid of the globular headlights and overly wavy lines that made the 996 seem so painfully desperate in its newness.
I rarely think about how difficult a new car can make it for people stuck with the old model. That’s mostly because I think new cars are for fools and also I can’t afford one. But it does make me wonder not what car was the hardest act to follow, but what car got totally shamed by the generation that replaced it?
