Default I traded my 14' Turbo S for this:



I traded even for this full option 1k mile CPO 2016 S600 Maybach from my local dealer. Not a Porsche, but goes like hell and the interior and four place seating rivals a private jet. This car depreciated $80k in 12 mos and even though future depreciation is certain, the value with long term CPO was certainly present over a comparable S550.

Dropping the kids at school in an 18ft long car will certainly be interesting.

Amazing car, congrats. You are certainly going in a different direction with this thing from the TTS. Any lap times with it yet?

enjoy!

CPO was a good move

you don't want to be on the hook for ANY repairs on that thing

get rid of it before the warranty expires!

interior shots?

You are 100% correct on the CPO. Each of the 4 seats have 27 motors per seat to enable massage, recline, ottomans, calf support, etc, etc.. The front passenger seat can actually join the rear passenger seat to make one continuous bed @ a 43 degree recline and the entire passenger side of the car becomes a single bed.

The interior looks like an Armani tuxedo.

Is that a car to drive or be driven in...I would think the back seats are the best seats in the house in that thing. You sir get cool points!!! Nice!

Wow! Hope you got a chauffeur to go along with it!

I'm certainly envious of this. Sounds like you scored a fantastic prize at a great price.

Fantastic car, and once you see the clown face it makes with the speedo/tach as the eyes, the airbag as the nose, and the steering wheel design as the goofy grin when viewed straight on, you'll never be able to un-see it
