Re: Swiss launch of the Porsche Taycan - also one for the starwars fans ;)

Cars are so 'out' in the constellation of things in a growing number of people.
These things are becoming as trendy as a suit and tie.

So: if only the body shape counts you surely agree that an FF is a hot hatch, right?

No, wrong, for at least two reasons. One, when did I say that the body shape was the only factor? (Hint: never), and two, show me a hot hatch that has a bonnet the length of the FF's, or indeed a V12 under it.

Mind you, I'd take a hot hatch over any four-door Porsche any day.

So a hatchback body shape isnít a hatchback anymore when it comes with the right engine?

A shooting brake is more ling a two door station wagon and has a really different shape, regardless of the engine.

A Ferrari V12 hot hatch would be nice but it would never look like a hatchback if a V12 would need to fit in the front.

Indeed, in some places the parking costs make you think about why having a car in first place......then the question becomes: why live in those cramped places?
