You're kidding, right? It's a car ad for a sports car that has been called a 911 for decades. The next generation of it will be great, and I look forward to seeing it. Have people been offended by the ad?

The new one is an insult to the old one...

^^^Well, that may be true, but I'm hoping that I'll be impressed with it when I see it in person.

At first I thought your title was referring to the white blob in front of the car and the word "coming".
And then I thought you were offended because they give them different numbers now.
And now I think you're offended over the 911-September 11th thing?
Whichever it is, it has no bearing on my wanting to beat the #%! out of that car on a track.

911?

I didn't see the link at all before you raised it...

It will be in bad taste and a PR disaster if they were trying to link the two..

The new generation of the 911 Porsche is coming out, soon. Spy pics, and maybe an official pic or two, have already been leaked. This has been in the works for quite some time.

No, it is not in any way offensive.

I don't think it's offensive but it's not in their best interest to even suggest a link to 9/11. I agree with lasbar, to do so intentionally would be in poor taste. Rather than "The next 911 is coming" they could say "The new 911 is coming". Sounds a little less like an event and more like a product.
