The front of the car has a strong resemblance and shows its relationship with the Porsche 911 sports car. It also has vertical air inlets which are distinctly designed and placed at the front of the car to keep outlook classy.
The LED matrix headlights are all about style and are a great evolution from Porsche’s previous headlight designs.
