Pork scratchings


#501

Did that a few months back - it passes.


#502

Usually on the inside lane with the driver on his phone…


#503

Nice car, smooth ride.
I know someone who has one and loves it.
But, it’s a barge.
Mark, have you driven one? If not, do try one sooner than later.
They drive quite well, it’s just that they’re huge.


#504

I drove one before I got the Macan. Lovely car, but the newer generation is significantly better. Drive an old one and a new one.


#505

New gen is 2013- or newer than that?


#506

IIRC 2016 onwards for gen2


#507

Yes, big car with difficult to see extremities…

However, beautifully made and a good left field alternative to the usual, Merc E, and BMW 5 series barges… :+1:


#508

That app is a massive time sink. What about the maserati quattroporte, they’re cooler (imo)


#509

Haha, I was just telling @Jim on Friday that he should get a Panamera.

It’s a lot of car for the money at second hand prices. Bloody big, mind.


#510

I was looking at the Ghibli. TBH, I don’t think the new Quattroporte is that nice. The old one was a lot better looking.

Probably too scared to drop cash on a Maser as well.


#511

Second hand prices are really nice compared to the 911/Cayman


#512

Indeed. Even new they’re significantly cheaper than a 911 - kind of goes to show that the 911 is a bit of a rip off.


#513

Possibly because the looks are marmite. I really like them though, and they are an uber cuntmobile :sunglasses:


#514

Pete, I’ve never costed a Panamera, but I suspect the final price will very much reflect what/which options you’ve specified. It won’t be a surprise, but buying 2nd hand, the options will also reflect the asking price.


#515

When I last looked the 911 started at £77k, while the Pananera was £67k for the base model, which us kind of odd considering just much more car you get.

Obviously Porsche are experts at making everything optional and that will increase the price (a lot!).

Certainly with the 911 Some options are definitely more desirable, while others don’t seem to make much difference.


#516

Everyone will hate you. :+1:


#517

Fxt


#518

Apparently, and this was a few years ago, it cost Porsche just £6K extra to build a 911 Turbo more than a Boxster!

I think they make more money per car than any other volume manufacturer…


#519

Wouldn’t surprise me!

I bet the Panamera costs more than the 911 to make.


#520

Yes, it must do…
