With advent of the 992, my thesis on this is proving more correct, not less. It’s also not just my own eccentric view.Goddamnit!!
Shouldn't we be arguing about peak Porsche now.
I don't think anyone is going to argue that the 992 is peak Porsche. The argument will probably be your GT vs older model Porsches.With advent of the 992, my thesis on this is proving more correct, not less. It’s also not just my own eccentric view.
Yeah, that’s what I’m getting at. It is not hyperbole to think or say that the 991.2-gen GT cars are likely “peak”. 992 is a step back or a step in the wrong direction.I don't think anyone is going to argue that the 992 is peak Porsche. The argument will probably be your GT vs older model Porsches.
The new 718 Cayman GTS 4.0 seems like it would be pretty close to peak Porsche.
And this effect is doubled on getting out.It's not the knee height that matters. It's the height at the bottom of your butt. You don't slide in with your legs bent at a 90-degree angle. You plant your butt on the seat and then swing your legs into the vehicle.
I'm 6'2 and I can comfortably slide into a full-size SUV (1994 RRC) without climbing at all. I have to crouch down to get into my Boxster or my 2002 or my ZHP (when I had it). It's simply easier for me to get into a higher car and it's 1000 times easier for me to load kids/stuff in and out of a higher vehicle because it's a straight-across load instead of having to lower the load into the car. But I recognize that people come in all shapes and sizes and things that are a good fit for me aren't necessarily going to be a good fit for someone else.
My Dad is only 5"5 very thin, and in his 70s. When he was younger he drove BMWs, MBs, Porsches (back in the days before any them made SUVs). By his late 50s with some back issues he gave up on sports cars as found it too hard to get in and out. He has a 2016 MB E350 sedan and an MB SUV and he greatly prefers the SUV, just for his ease of getting in and out. Today he even finds sedans a hassle to get in and out of.Yup my in-law is in her 70s, getting into the back seat of a sedan (and getting out) is definitely harder
