    Just saw an article on top gears Twitter page on the new Porsche. My view is it’s absolutely stunning 4AAFD464-8936-4320-ADD5-A32BA988F53C.png

    That’s very stunning isn’t it!
    Porsche’s really get on my tits! There I’ve said such profanity
    Every time I look, I desire and pine, turn to the wife and say “ Can I” with puppy dog eyes, she always says “yeah if you want”
    She know Dahm fine I want! :nono::punch:
    Thankfully self restrained!

    Another one to avoid when I’m next in the showroom. Porsche showrooms always make me feel poor.

    That's gorgeous.

    On the subject of new Porsche.

    Ordered a Taycan Turbo, hopefully due November. Mostly due to the massive saving on BIK, so overall as the owner of the company I will be better off.
    That said it took TG review to convince me, my biz partner was chomping at the bit whereas I just adore my Panamera.

    Over lockdown ( I am working as we are a critical supplier -I could bore you with things we have been involved with for Covid - one involved Rolls Royce Controls though), I have hardly had my engine on and currently I am over 90mpg having done over 600 local miles since back from the Philippines on March 15th, so a full EV isn't a massive issue for me.

    Only downside is the dog, or perhaps if we do Scotland or Lyon again, so we need to change the Mini for something dog friendly, prob an XC60 or an Evoque.

    My boss has a macan gts is battle ship grey as I say to him to wind him up. You’d easily get the dog in the back of on of those. (y)

    It will be going no where near a super market car park if I get it! :). As part of the 'deal' the wife's 1 series may be updated to an X3 and that can do the shopping duties :ROFLMAO:

    That's beautiful, pure automotive porn :ohyes: , but like @Jonnyg123 I'll never be able to have one :oops:

    Before committing, have a read of potential problems with the PDK 'box - I remembered I'd read somewhere about this [might have been Honest John reviews, but this is appropriate [yes, it's PH, but......]

    https://www.pistonheads.com/gassing/topic.asp?h=0&f=230&t=1751689

    And this one too https://rennlist.com/forums/991/1100019-pdk-failure-and-outcome-story.html

    Seems like it's vital to have the 'proper' Porsche extended with these if available - I can't see any aftermarket warranty covering a replacement "Wear & tear innit, Guv". Failures/problems might be few and far between, but The Law of sod and all that. :whistle:

    Please keep us updated with your decision.

    Very nice with all the right extras. Only thing is the Porsche dealers are closed aren’t they? Mine certainly is.

    Hi Ian yes the dealer is closed and it is 150 miles from me but have been in email communication with them. You are right on the options particularly for me sports exhaust, damper control and sunroof. :)
    As for the PDK box I cannot believe I am looking at an automatic Porsche but the box in the 6 series is sublime and I must be getting old as changing gear in a manual car just feels a bit of a chore.. I have heard the horror stories but if I buy with a 2 year warranty and keep it up then hopefully I am covered..
    My sons are both now at Uni (albeit back home at the minute) I am 50 in December and would love another 911 so if I don't get one now when will I and I have the green light from the wife:cool:. Watch this space, I am in no hurry and still torn on whether to sell my 944 if I am honest as I have now owned for over almost 23 years and it has still only done 78K miles..

    Thank you. Yes it is an S2. 3.0 litre 4 cylinder and still pretty quick even compared to the 640:)

    Found pics of the new targa on Instagram must say I prefer the targa over the convertible C9CDA5DF-3040-452C-A29E-73382B202516.png 6903E1F3-11E3-49E3-8120-C4808A409B43.png 7ADE1DBF-109E-48B8-88C1-F15E633C2E42.png DE76DFDC-4584-4B7F-AD20-2A07A5D553B2.png
