post #3106 of 15744

Just bought an 1987 Alfa Romeo Spider, 106,xxx miles. Fairly solid, a drivers car (not a weekend show car)... $3,000 out the door, I am happy with it. Another year in Florida with out A/C, puzzled.gif . I will take pics tomorrow when I pick it up.

No a/c in Florida? No thanks. I'd die if my car had no a/c here in Cali.


And on another note, Porsche with a new cash cow...


A mid-high $30k small SUV since the Cayenne has been so damn profitable. Can't help but feel they're selling out.

Wasn't it supposed to be called Cajun or something?

Well Porsche is own by the Volkswagen AG now, so so they need to milk the cow, as they do with Bentley, Lambo and Bugatti.

It's build on the same platform as the Q5 and A4/A5, so unless it has a proper porsche eninge, I can't see a reason to buy it over a Q5 etc.

Yah, glad they didn't call it Cajun.

But yah, people will buy it over a Q5 because it will have a Porsche badge.

It just seems idiotic to buy a re badged Audi at a premium and from what I have read it's going to have Audi engines as well, the only selling point is Audi's new 3.0 bi turbo diesel, is going to be fitted, but then again, it's not faster than the 35d in the X3, so it has to really good looking for it to make sense.

Considering the Cayenne starts at $48k, this has to be about $8k-$10k cheaper, so about ~$38k-$40k? The Q5 starts at $35k. If the assumption is close to my guess, then it isn't really a big price jump and why wouldn't you pay an extra $3k to get the Porsche badge especially if it looks better than the Q5? It'll likely perform a bit better too, from what understand, the Cayenne does outperform it's competition but who knows what this will bring. Panamera Turbo S is also a beast so we'll see where this one goes.

Well if I could get a brand new Cayenne for 48k I would dance around like some one Jersey shore, BUT I live in Denmark and a Cayenne starts at around 300K and a Q5 starts at 130K, so the jump is wee bit bigger around here.

As far as I remember he cayenne is a good bit more expensive, than the competitors (X5, ML, RRS etc.) and so is the service and insurance and with petrol and diesel being aprox. 2,20$ a LITRE, I would get a diesel and I'm still not sold on the idea of a porsche diesel.

Audi RS4 Avant - Front Angle, 2013, 800x600, 3 of 38

 

not stylish or cool enough for some, but sprint blue, ceramic brakes, sport suspension and 450 HP at 8500 rpm and it's on my shortlist

for some reason Audi doesn't ship the RS avants to the US

I'm still not keen on the silver strip thing on the front of the new RS models, I know you can get a black optics pack, but still.

If I was to get one it would be in Daytona with saddle leather, now they have stopped making deep sea blue.

I fell out of love for audis.
post #3117 of 15744
I got to be honest, that RS4 Avant just doesn't do it for me. Have you seen the side profile, it is an ugly station wagon.


On the other hand, I am in love with this white 991 with black HREs.

Not far off from each other in price at all, here in the U.S. anyways. The ML starts at ~$45k and the X5 at ~$47k. In comparison, the X3 starts at ~$37k here in the U.S. too so I would put that new Porsche around that range.

Insurance difference isn't that much different either, I would only have to pay an extra $3-$4 extra a month for the Cayman in comparison to my current Z4. Service, well yeah Porsche will almost always be more expensive but it is a Porche.

My RS4 has the faux aluminum trim, and I like it, lightens the car up a bit.  I used to be into the monochromatic/blacked-out look, but as I got older that has faded.

Avus is nice but I've grown fond of bolder colors (used to be a white, black silver guy).  I like them looking like a toy. lol8[1].gif
 

Honestly the red looks pretty good, as in little red wagon, and wagons haul things, and this one hauls ass, lol

Most new audis look like shit, especially the avants, the new A6 avant is if possible even uglier than the A4.
