Porsche Hatch?

While Saab lovers are arguing the merits of bringing back the hatch, Porsche has pretty much finalized a four door hatch for MY2009. Could a 911 be stretched into a four door and keep its charm? I wouldn't have thought so until I saw the pictures in the March 2007 edition of Automobile magazine today. It looks quite nice.

It seems like a strange idea for Porsche to be producing, but the concept is not entirely new. In 1988, the company developed a four door concept which looked like a four door 911 — the 989. In any event, I hope it's successful so that Saab will begin producing hatchbacks again.
