    Hi, I hope this works? Yes the R8 was an absolute beauty, if I am honest, it got a much better reaction on the street than a 911. I was even let out of junctions by lorry drivers! It is a very easy car to drive, like a big Audi TT really, not unlike a 911 in terms of ease of ownership. I would say it needed quite a bit of warming up of oil, tyres etc, so not suitable really for a large number of short trips. Practicality not bad as you have the space behind the seats, which can even fit golf clubs. Again, keep it quiet on a Porsche forum, but there is nothing like the sound and pull of a good old fashioned normally aspirated V8. A great car, based on the Lambo Gallardo and if I had enough money, I would have kept it, but experience shows that when I have two cars other than the wife's horse box trailer, I would use the practical one 75% of the time. So hopefully the Macan will do a good job of fulfilling two rules until another R8 crosses my path, a V10 soft-top.

    Macan S is the base/cheapest Macan right now. I haven't heard anything lower/cheaper coming to the U.S. for 2014 or 2015...

    They were willing to sell this one ~$70k. If you find a base one (without the $3,500 in options), it would be even cheaper.

    My Macan S is coming out to $65k.
