    Mercedes marketing at their finest. It's the same reason people spend an extra $70-80k over the S63 which has nearly identical performance.

    hey at least you have a car for those long trips. At the end of October, we traveled an hour north to go apple picking. $180 for that fucking rental car.

    I have to say, making payments on a car I use at least once or twice a month is totally worth it over the costs of renting or zipcars or hating my life sitting on a crowded bus and the extra time wasted waiting in lines or waiting for someone to pick me up at the stop etc.

    when GreenFrog moves here, we have an iron clad agreement that I can rent his car for when I need to pick up toilet paper at Target.

    Porsche couldn't have that... You have to maintain the proper model hierarchy.

    Base Macan S will have a 3.0L V6 putting out 335hp while the top range Macan Turbo has a turbo 3.5L V6 (Seen in the current Panamera S/4S) that produces 394hp... That one will be a rocket!

    Went to the Sotheby's auction display today and took a ton of pics. Enjoy. Just dumped a lot of them in there in no particular order and varying quality.

    You do know that the cayenne comes in a base diesel with 29xhp and a diesel s with close to 400hp, so it will happen.

    The Audi diesel gets aprox 380hp, with a remap alone.

    Seriously :(

    I continually consider buying a car, but logic always gets the better of me when I realize that insurance costs alone make renting a car the better option, even with the outrageous rates.

    Aren't there very reduced rates for car owners who put very small amounts of mileage on their cars? I have a track car out here in California which I drive mostly to track events and rarely on the streets. My insurance is still under $50 a month for basic coverage because of the low mileage option. I could imagine NY being somewhere around the same but I'm not too familiar with the city.

    :confused:

    I recall making no such agreement. This feels like a one-sided relationship. What's in it for me?!
