    992 Turbo S is quick! Even with PZeros.

    I was expecting better from the R8 which had Cup 2.


    Re: AB Sportscars: Audi R8 V10 vs BMW M8 vs Nissan GT-R Nismo vs Porsche 992 Turbo S

    The M8 is impressive in all tests !

    I was expecting better from the R8 which had Cup 2.

    The Cup 2 for the R8 are a joke, had them on my R8, they were not really faster than my current PZero Corsa on my Performante. They are optimised for street driving, not the track.

    Even so, the R8 Performance track performance is quite disappointing in this test in my opinion. Apparently they made the car not only less loud (PF) but also more comfortable (according to my former Audi dealer, customers demanded that Smiley).

    Yes, the 992 Turbo S uses the latest generation Porsche N-rated PZero and it seems to be a fantastic tire...at least for one Nordschleife run. Smiley

    Yes, indeed. A friend had the M8 Cabriolet Performance as a rental car, he was pretty amazed with the performance.

    The GT-R needs to be retired. Hopefully, the next GT-R moves the game on again for everyone to catch up again...

    There appears to be a 400Z coming, much sooner than any GT-R.  Of course not in these leagues.

    New Nissan Z Not Coming To Europe, Roadster And Hybrid Nismo Possible


    A shrinking European sports cars market and specific regulations on emissions mean that Nissan was unable to build a viable business case for the introduction of the production version of the next generation Z-car in Europe.”

    At first I thought it was boring but I watched the video nevertheless.  Some of the details, which do not photograph well in the more distant shots, came alive.  The design, at first appeared unfinished, is very redolent of the designs languages of the older Z cars.  Add a manual transmission with a 400 bhp turbocharged V6 to the mix and this car becomes attractive to a number of consumers in North America.  If Nissan can hold the price to around $50,000, they will have a sales success.

    Initially, one thought the same about the grille.  However, that changed when watching the video.  This detail will probably change, along with the tail lamps on the production model.

    Re: AB Sportscars: Audi R8 V10 vs BMW M8 vs Nissan GT-R Nismo vs Porsche 992 Turbo S

    The Toyota GR Yaris is an amazing little racer with AWD. I was actually thinking about getting one (lease) from my local dealer but he told me that he needs to get his "numbers" (whatever this means) first, before he can make an offer. He also said that the car is in high demand but in the end, he doesn't believe that many of the interested people will actually be able to insure this car (he has lots of inquiries from young people who probably cannot get proper insurance for the car).

    My son hates this car, he wants something with a "punch" (torque, sound, engine). yes

    It's already sold out in Australia!

    I would never get my son this car, way too fast for him. Smiley

    My son still put his mind on a pickup truck and this comes from someone who loves sports cars. Smiley I think this happened for two reasons: He is very tall and he really has issues fitting in smaller cars and he is scared that he is going to be too fast as a beginner and this is his way of self-restriction while still being able to enjoy an emotional ride (V8 sound, etc.). Not sure however if driving a pickup truck in Germany is the best idea Smiley but he finishes school next year and if the grades are as "expected", he will get his pickup truck. I think. Smiley

    Right now he is madly in love with the RAM 1500 TRX but of course he knows that he is never going to get such a powerful and expensive truck. Smiley He would be very happy with the RAM 1500 Rebel (see photo, exactly in this color). It just needs to have a nice sounding V8. Smiley

    2019-ram-1500-rebel-white-agt-europe.jpg

    Will be difficult, in Germany pickup trucks, especially with a V8, don't have exactly a very good reputation (environment and all) and another problem is parking spaces, I don't have a clue how he will park this thing here, most parking lots in Germany barely fit my Mercedes GLC. Smiley

    Re: AB Sportscars: Audi R8 V10 vs BMW M8 vs Nissan GT-R Nismo vs Porsche 992 Turbo S

    There’s kind of a revival of the 70s Datsun pickups in the US now... people actually collect them I think. Ram is the third most popular brand in Texas, fourth if you count Chevy and GMC as separate, but my friend that like Ram buys a new one every 3 years or so and won’t have anything else.

    Interesting, didn't know that. Smiley

    I guess my son would be happy with any kind of pickup truck, as long as it has a nice sounding V8. Actually, any kind of car with a V8. Smiley I was thinking about a Camaro or Challenger as well, they have those electronic nannies to limit power/speed for teenage drivers or valet mode but in the end, I think that my son is going to get what is (financially and reasonably) possible at the time he has his driver's license. No Smart for him though, he hates this car. Smiley

    Can't wait for the Raptor version of this.

    And hopefully this drives better than a Wrangler, which to me is just not that good. One of my siblings has a Rubicon JLU and even though it's new and packed with cool features, it is just not that fun to drive.

    One big problem with this car (my son knows it): No V8. There are rumors that Ford might offer a model called "Warthog" with a V8 (maybe even with the Raptor engine) but so far... Smiley 

    The reason why my son wants a pickup truck is not because he loves these cars but because he wants a big car where he fits in properly (he is over 1,90 m at 17) and which sounds properly and unfortunately there are only SUVs and pickup trucks. Smiley Smiley

    Not a problem for him though, a novice driver doesn't need the V8, in fact they lowest V6 versión is almost too much already imo. I heard it's not coming to Europe anyway.
