    Maybe we should open up a separate thread with sports car family pics but if you want privacy, you better cover up faces, license plates, etc.. Just saying.

    Is this the son who was driving the Gold R ?  How do you find the car ?  Over here, it is mainly the Toyota version that is sold. ( they are the same cars )  I see rarely the Subaru. Why take the Subaru over the Toyota ? 

     

    Yes, same one I bought the Golf R for. He still have the Golf R. 

    We have like 5 Subaru dealers locally, 3 of them are apart of a bigger dealership group and I know the owners of all 3 Smiley

    No but seriously, when my son asked for one of these, I checked and there was like 3 cars left. Each dealer only gets one car. Next morning when I start making calls 1 of them were already gone, another one had a deposit on it and the 3rd car is like 400km away. I pulled some strings on the one with the deposit, that other guy was waiting on financing approval and it didn't look good, so I got the car and the other guy was offered a cheaper model to fit his financing. Lucky so to speak.

    Locally I rarely see the Toyota version, ratio maybe 5 to 1 Subaru vs Toyota. Not sure why, maybe they just like the Subaru styling better.

    Thanks. I'll have to looks more into it. Normally here the Subaru' s are sold very well, but mainly because of their AWD/snow capacities and reliability.

    Subaru/Toyota is suppose to be readying a new version of the car, the tS was the send off for the old platform.

    I imagine there's new Porsche fans that google information and whenever they stumble upon a link back to RT they just leave cause the information contained in a thread never corresponds to the title.

    That is a beautiful photo. I am lucky to have a grandson who is equally passionate about cars. Plus my future son-in-law. A love of cars also ensures there are never any awkward gaps in conversation!!

    Like looking at a 992 motor?  You guys have the funniest questions. Maybe reflect on the good old days when there were horses. I bet people looked down on cars and could not understand why anyone would trade their horse for that. Smiley

    Nice review. Thanks for posting. Seems likely I would react the same. 


    Re: Porsche Taycan Turbo S - Short Review

    Don't think I have posted my Taycan Cross Turismo pic

    iris-3.jpeg
    iris.jpegiris-2.jpeg

    Nov production. Think I am going do a matte wrap when it gets here.

    As it happens, one of my buddies ordered a Cayenne turbo GT, Nov production also and he is doing European delivery. He knew I had a car on order and forgot what it was, as he had asked me to do ED with him together. 

    When I told him mine will be a Taycan, first thing he said was he isn't waiting for me to charge the car Second thing he said was to ask me to find a Nov production Cayenne turbo GT to match him.

    This conversation with him highlights the biggest issue with EV still, infrastructure. In Germany there are enough chargers along the highway, but they just aren't fast enough like filling a car with gas. His car maybe thirsty on the autobahn, but it takes him 5 mins to fill up, I would be losing 20 mins to him on every stop. This simply isn't going to work the way we travel together. 

    Taycan's range is perfectly fine, but Porsche needs to do something about the charging speed, and they are already the fastest charging EV out there.
