    Re: Bentley Continental GT- sportscar? Anyone having experience from this car?

    No-way I would go for a Panamera. If you take the Porsche badge off it looks like a Passat. Super boring. And again my favorite phrase "Stuttgart employee car of the year" - so many lower management people and part time Posche-Employee Mum's driving that car. You must be an idiot living here and spending 200k for such a mainstream Volkswagen.

    In Ohio, NOBODY would confuse a Panamera with a Passat.  I get all sorts of thumbs-up acknowledgements from passers-by who wouldn't look twice at any VW.

    That said, if it weren't for the 4-door thing that I need, a Continental GT would be in my wheelhouse.

    In USA, a nice Panamera can be had for US$150k.  Continental GT is more like US$250k.

    Enough reason to wait for the new Flying Spur.  The current variant is spectacular when compared with the first; however, the new platform will make this car one of the best on the market.

    I already have an old-school Arnage, so I don't see a Flying Spur in my future because I can't drive a Bentley to the office.  It's just one of those things.  I don't want some jerk passing through the complex's parking lot to key it.

    Wow, I didn't know that Cincinnati isn't much different than Germany in this regard. Smiley

    Sounds like you worry too much, let your kids worry about their kids, you did your job already.Smiley

    It’s a family money thing. Going back many generations and wars. You gain an appreciation for the ability do so and you take the responsibility to perpetuate it seriously. It’s a good thing. I thanks my great great grandparents all the time. A ten year old Turbo is hence my speed and plenty fun to drive. Keep in mind I have been driving Porsche’s for 39 or my 54 years.
