The thing is, if you park a Macan and a Cayenne next to each other, the Macan isn't really that much smaller. What Porsche needs to build is a smaller Macan, not a smaller Cayenne.

Imagine how...

I don''t understand how the new Coupe model fits into the product line next to the Macan. Why would someone choose one over the other? What's the difference? :confused: Seems like unnecessary...

If I were going to upgrade the engine at all, I think I'd go straight to 3.8.

OTOH $6K sounds like a pretty good deal, to put it mildly.

So many gratuitous ridges and crannies for dirt... this thing must have been designed with input from the detailers' union.

Keeping a 992 interior looking good is going to be a full-time job.

No lag whatsoever in my '13 981S.

I think a lot of people who have historically complained about lag don't understand that a PDK is not a traditional automatic with a torque converter. How it...

People in that market aren't looking for "perfect," they're looking for "interesting." An automatic in a car like that isn't very interesting.

Sometimes worse is better.

I'll be the Debbie Downer and point out that this thing really doesn't sound very good.

Frankly, it sounds like a 4-banger in this particular video.

Don't get me wrong -- I like the 918 just fine -- well, except perhaps for the idea of putting the fuel filler next to the exhaust manifold. :corn: I didn't mean to disparage it when I...

As has been pointed out numerous times, that's because the 918 basically is a Prius. It's a highly-automated hybrid, in which the shifter is much less relevant as a control.

You people need to read what the filmmakers themselves, including the late Bruno Ganz, have said about those videos.

IMO what killed the 4C was its transmission. A car like that makes no sense with an automatic, any more than a Miata does.

And I say that as a firm PDK adherent. If I were buying a 4C I'd want a...

Safe to say a lot of people stepped into the dealership thinking, "Manual or nothing," and had their minds changed on one or more test drives.

Not super common for automatics to have a shift boot, but not unheard-of (https://www.google.com/search?q=automatic+gearshift&hl=en&source=lnms&tbm=isch) either.

They have also ditched the 3rd brake light, going by the spy photo of the new Turbo that somebody took in the factory. The Kremlinology is indeed interesting.

It's well understood that these 'reliability' surveys don't distinguish between a dropped Bluetooth connection and a dropped intake valve. Not particularly useful for anything but marketing purposes.
