  • Epaulet x Styleforum Alpine Loden Collection

    Loden wool, woven in Tirol for centuries, is known for its resistance to cold and wetness. Our project in collaboration with Epaulet introduces Alpine Loden, a modern 18oz fabric blend of 75% merino wool and 25% nylon, woven in Italy. It's lighter, more durable, wind-resistant, and more comfortable than traditional Loden fabric. Partnering with Rochester Tailored Clothing, we offer custom garments like sportcoats, suits, and overcoats, made to your specifications. Learn more about the Loden collection here.

Porsche reveals new Mission X Hypercar today (have to admit being smitten with the Rocket Metallic paint).

I understand that hypercars are going to be heavily driven by aerodynamic concerns...but I'm kinda meh on that overall.

I mean it certainly looks cool and like a hypercar, but it also just looks like a hypercar to me. With some small tweaks, I could see the same thing coming out of other companies...doesn't have that porsche feel to me.

I think the new AM DB12 looks better.

HC's are cool and all for the aero, technology, and speed but are really mehh for looks.

I don't disagree. I kind of wished based on its likeness to the WEC/IMSA Prototype cars that this would be a hybrid, kind of a street legal 963. Still looks cool but that's about it.

There are just too many models of hypercars to get excited about anymore. And they really don’t differentiate themselves from each other either. I think there are more hypercar models than econobox car models

I saw my first Rivian RIS this morning at the climbing gym.

Probably a Corolla now that the Mitsubishi Mirage is discontinued
Been driving the new one for a few months as a loaner until the new lease arrives from the factory. It’s as bland as it gets. With an anemic engine.

I agree there just isn't that much Porsche DNA or design language in this car. I think if they had done the headlights a little bit differently the shape of the front might have been tied into their vintage racing Porsche 910. So perhaps it was a bit of a missed opportunity, but even then unless someone is is into vintage racing cars most people wouldn't think it looks like a Porsche.
