I heard about it, but haven't look too much into it. Though I may just have to pay a visit to my local dealer. Have you had an experience with Range Rovers? If so, how have they been?

I have always driven Land Cruisers, I tried the new HSE, and I am happily putting the new Raptor to good use.

Wow, more Raptors! Already a couple in this thread. I honestly did not expect the Porsche community to be into Raptors. Are they that of good of trucks? I've never considered a truck but if you guys keep posting Raptors, I may have to see what the fuss is about.

I have really enjoyed my Raptor, it provides me the ability to enjoy all my hobbies in one vehicle. I also luv beating on a truck vs a 100K SUV.

And we had rented out COTA for a day, and took the raptors out for a couple laps. COTA officials weren't super happy with it. But great photo op!

LOL...My Porsche dealer is also the local area Land Rover dealer, and I had specced a $90k all-in Velar in my wife's favorite color combo, all electronic goodies, safety $hit, etc.... it was to be a surprise 50th b-day gift for her, but alas, she said no, too ostentatious and really can't stand the type of pretentious women she knows who drive Range Rovers....


I have a GT3, GT4 and 458 in the garage (modest compared to Nuvolaris and anonymous918, and C.J., I know) and she's worried about looking too flashy and extravagant in a F'ing SUV......she's a keeper!

She saved me a ton of bread, and I put my $1k deposit with the $1K for the next RS at the same dealership. Maybe the new Volvo XC 60 is more her style?

I would hardly call the cars that Jamie140 posted pictures of as "daily drivers", too bad he deleted his post pictures...

Wow, woman who doesn't want a Range Rover? Never heard of that before. They usually want that or a Mercedes, any model type. Just as long as people can see the badge But the new Volvo XC 60 is a great car. I've read nothing but rave reviews on it and even got to drive one at work a couple months back. Very luxurious. Though just not my style.

Apologies for the slight deviation from the topic.

Nacelle, for me, yours is the most interesting post on this thread. Not for your comments, but for your avatar pic! Peter Sellers in the opening scene of "The Party"! Fantastic! Singularly the longest death scene in movie history!. Lol.
