    Just look at the tiny wheels of the 964... I remember having 225/50 R16 on my 944...

    It's funny you said this. Tesla owner across the street has hit his house and his wall trying to get the car out of the driveway. His yard now looks like a boat dock because he's added all these (red) padded bumpers.

    And we are meant to feel relaxed as a Tesla autopilots us down a road at 100km/h...?

    otoh , doctors say this healthy 37 y/o may have survived a potentially fatal pulmonary embolism because his Tesla drove him to the nearest hospital quicker than if he were to pull over and wait during rush hour for an ambulance .. I suspect withn the next decade most if not all here will want for themselves or their lived ones, while all of us universally wearing some type of health status montor 24/7 autosummon an ambulance to their location if in a building or autodrive their  vehicle  to nearest appropriate care level health facility if swifter than flagging a passerby if even concious ( ie hasnt crashed into a tree after a sudden stroke behind the wheel ) when suffering incipient heart attack, stroking out , unconscious bleeding into brain after falling down stairs alone in home etc etc ( or even attacked )!

    not debating current primtive state if the art , I'm talking me about where this autopilot technology could  be a decade or more from now 

    on the same topic, analysis reveals no reduction in drunk driving accidents ( second to excessive speed as cause of auto fatalities ) because those using Uber etc are  the same who would have used a taxi in the past  ...the 24/7  drunkard still weaves his way home -fingers crossed - as usual , behind the wheel .....autopilot will benefit society 20 yrs from now

    The time will come where the technology is mature.

    Just not sure that this is one of those moments where being an "early adopter" is a good thing.

    As I am driving the kids to school, I do not want some algorithm struggling to make a choice between the oncoming truck, the adjacent river and the footpath.

    as you may know , most of these autonomy companies are employing religious authrities, philosophers , bioethicists etc to help them decide " relative value "  in autopilot algorithms who to sacrifice ...the 12 children cycling on the right , you and your two children in the backseat or the solo driver to your left who is the only surgeon in the world pioneering and beginninhead transplants !

    The situation with that car just became stupid, I'm waiting for new GT3 with same transmission and many other improvements.I bet you would be able to order these seats also.

    Will be better off anyway, since I will have a car I can actually drive on a regular basis without fear of losing $1/2mln just for putting a few k miles on it.

    Not from Porsche (I would guess), but some current GT3 owners have already had their own Pepita cushions made (not too expensive)

    a. I hate when they display 911 models that don't have a fixed rear wing with the tiny spoiler up. not having a spoiler and keeping the classic 911 shape was the point, way to totally miss it. 

    b. Damn, that looks more like a listing for the showroom with all those interior and building pictures, they really want to sell you on their service and capabilities as a dealership.

    After spending millions building and equipping the place they could be excused for wanting to show it off.  Smiley
