    when GreenFrog moves here, we have an iron clad agreement that I can rent his car for when I need to pick up toilet paper at Target.

    Porsche couldn't have that... You have to maintain the proper model hierarchy.

    Base Macan S will have a 3.0L V6 putting out 335hp while the top range Macan Turbo has a turbo 3.5L V6 (Seen in the current Panamera S/4S) that produces 394hp... That one will be a rocket!

    Went to the Sotheby's auction display today and took a ton of pics. Enjoy. Just dumped a lot of them in there in no particular order and varying quality.

    You do know that the cayenne comes in a base diesel with 29xhp and a diesel s with close to 400hp, so it will happen.

    The Audi diesel gets aprox 380hp, with a remap alone.

    Seriously :(

    I continually consider buying a car, but logic always gets the better of me when I realize that insurance costs alone make renting a car the better option, even with the outrageous rates.

    Aren't there very reduced rates for car owners who put very small amounts of mileage on their cars? I have a track car out here in California which I drive mostly to track events and rarely on the streets. My insurance is still under $50 a month for basic coverage because of the low mileage option. I could imagine NY being somewhere around the same but I'm not too familiar with the city.

    :confused:

    I recall making no such agreement. This feels like a one-sided relationship. What's in it for me?!

    I figured the statement to first be absurd, but then again... the gt-r does exist...

    So tell me... why anyone would opt for the BASE 991s when they can get the F-Type R for the same price? And this is ignoring the fact that the base 991s is a turd, and a reasonably loaded model is probably pushing 125-130k. You can literally load the F-Type with every option and it only increases the price by $10k.

    I'm a big Porsche guy but Jaguar pretty much decimated the Carrera S with this offering.

    Drove them both back to back. I found the 911 to still be the better driving car. Don't have time to fact check but I think it still performs slightly better all around, numbers wise

    Jaguar is prettier, sounds better and is better value - I do agree with those points

    Believe the Jaguar is close to 400lbs heavier than a 911S. For something to throw around a track I would still take a manual 911S.
