    Re: Porsche August US sales

    As I age, I am becoming wiser.

    Re: Porsche August US sales

    Nick, have you tried the PDK yet?

    I was invited to do so by my Porsche salesperson and I haven't done it yet. If it is anything like the Ferrari F1, I would buy it in a heartbeat.

    Re: Porsche August US sales

    FYI the future replacement for the Pagani Zonda F due out in 2009 (internal codename C9) is rumoured to be EPA/DOT compatible i.e. which I believe means it can be sold in the USA:

    About price, the price gap between the CGT and the Zonda S was zero. AFAIK both cars sold in the UK for GBPounds330000 but the Zonda F sold for GBPounds440000

    That depends on what youn like about the F1 tranny. I reckon the PDK is faster and more efficient but less "visceral" or does things with less fuss, even with the PDK in sport mode I would think. But the PDK is not only faster but also more practical for everytime of situation, you can start on reverse on an uphill for example without frying you clutch and in city or congested type driving its more confortable and smoother. The exhaust sound is also part of that equation so the sport exhaust system would help in that regard of sportiness. Try it and let bus know

    440,000 pounds is about $770,000. However, it is good to know they may be allowed to sell here.

    Carlos, I will not get PDK unless it has paddles. The steering wheel buttons are a joke.

    Just get a car for an extended testdrive, Nick. You might find you have a sense of humor and enjoy the joke.

    @ Carlos: Hey, you and I both seem to have lost the plot!
    The plan was to talk Nick out of buying a Porsche, to avoid ruining the brand's reputation.

    Nah, there'd be no fun in that.

    I think I'll just become a Nissan fan-boy instead.
