Cool Beasty Porsche Cayenne GTS - LA

What you guys think of this thing? Is it a beast or what?

(Sorry they are just jpegs. Not the best quality.)

UPDATE: Added some more day light pictures. Is it really that bad?

I think it's a little brutish and ugly. However, I understand this is likely the appeal.

Too much black - no contrast at all. The matte finish is too overdone... I was never a fan of it and still not a fan.

Completely agree. I think they look as good as they are going to look stock.

Not a fan of the way this one was done.

You guys don't like it? Wow? I am surprised. I think it looks good. I am not a fan of too much exterior modding but I think this one was done with some taste still. Personally, I might have done a bit less.

Interesting. People in West LA and Beverly Hills and OC love it. Constantly pull him over and compliment him. Hmm.. I guess it's a love it or hate it design lol.

It just doesn't look integrated at all. Basically take a Cayenne, throw and aftermarket front bumper on it, then wrap or dip it matte black. The wheels are stock and other than the bumper and color, it doesn't look modded at all. It looks like what you'd do to your hand me down Cayenne if you're 23 and don't have much money. The orange accents just add to that impression as it seems to be "what can I do to make a statement without spending any money?"

The car itself is obviously nice, just not what's been done to it. Of course cars like that turn heads, but so does a Caprice on 30"s.

I 100% appreciate the work that went into modding this car. I just think you can't really improve on the way a GTS looks stock and in more ways than one, this GTS just has too much going on.

Dont like the mods, but for its size, there isnt a better handling/feeling SUV. Add in the fantastic V8 and it's got win all over it.

Nice feedback guys. Just making clear, this is NOT my car!

I know the owner very well. He is 23, very wealthy and has a few cars.

I personally like the car I gotta say. Maybe in person it looks better. I like how the orange accent goes all the way through from the front to the rear exhaust in one line. The stock GTS is too boring. This one has obviously the bumper, hood, straight exhaust and the matte metallic black wrap (the first black metallic wrapped car in the US.)

And without spending much money I would say is relative. The car was $50k and the mods about $12k.

I think it is a beast and not comparable to a Caprice on 30s And as far as I know... the car works very well if you guys understand what I mean

Another check to the "or what" box. Might look beastly if you just came out of high school.

I agree with everyone else. Nothing dipped can be done in good taste. It's a nice look for high school or college kids, not a grown adult.
