8 way seat on a Porsche should be forbidden. If one thing that shows how popular the 8 way seats are is that none of the many Base loaners I got had them on it. Minimum should be 14 way.
18’s are only good if you can fit yourself comfortably on it. I tried many times and with heavy winter coats I could not find myself comfortable on the 18’s. My 14’s are fantastic and the lumbar support by pumping air in that area is a life saver if you have back pain.I actually like them more than the 14's . That flat 14 surface and extra electronics is hander on the back and shoulder area . 18's are by far the best and none are horrible .
You would be surprised how many Ferraris, McLarens, Aston Martins and Lamborghinis there are here in Minneapolis. I always scratch my head since you can only drive those cars for half of the year. I get that in Miami but here?? When I was waiting for my Macan back in 2015 I saw the Porsche dealer had a barely used Ferrari on their floor. I asked the SA what was that car about, he smiled and said it was one of his clients that took it out during the winter, could barely keep the car on the road, got pissed and drove to the Porsche dealer to trade it. He said the guy got in, saw a $200k+ 911 on the floor, gave the Ferrari keys and drove the 911 home. 😳 Anyway, he said all the 15 cars that will be at the dealer when it opens next month are already sold. It will be interesting to visit the place if they allow peasants there. 🤣🤣🤣Ferrari is an entirely different world . Most first time buyers are expected to buy a CPO . They want to get to know their buyers and wont sell a car to just anyone who wants it no matter how much he offers . They even put a cease and desist order a few years ago on a guy who put wrap on the car. Deadmau5 Gets In Trademark Catfight With Ferrari
LOL!!! I am missing the 6ft blond. 🤣🤣🤣 But my kids are Italians and one is named Enzo so that might help.We’ve been to the Dallas Ferrari dealer several times. They are wonderfully nice! Though admittedly, it probably helps with a gorgeous blond wife who’s 6ft in heels on your arm... Nonetheless, they were super cool and gave us free posters and such for the kiddos. My neighbor drives a 488 Spider, so we get to experience one up close quite often. He actually drives his quite a bit! The sound from his car is exquisite.
Great names. Both my kids have Italian names. Enzo has many posters of the Ferrari Enzo and Ferrari miniatures in his room. People love his name around here. Easy to say and very strong like his personality. 😍😍 Mi niece is named Valentina.I kid you not (no pun intended), we intensely discussed naming our son Enzo or Valentino.... we REALLY almost went with Valentino. 😬
They just dropped the asking price by $10,140. I could be wrong but things are getting back on track. Spoke with a friend who is a realtor here in MN. She said the last 4 months have been the most insane in her 20 years of being a realtor. People paying $500k over asking prices for sight unseen houses and no inspection. She sold $5mm plus houses in cash. Also, some people were adding perks to the family selling the house like full vacation in the Caribbean for the entire family. She said in the last 3 weeks that was gone. Buyers started giving the middle finger to sellers trying to sell houses without inspections. Prices are still higher but way closer to reality. I think the same will happen to cars. People are not that stupid.When @muhney poked at the 911 Turbo I looked and saw new cars asking near 300K . One or two even broke though it. So I decided to see what my car is selling for on the market. Granted the cars have less miles but OVER MSRP for a 4 year old car ??????

If this was the only example I would think it was a typo. Its everywhere . I may not trade my car but rather sell it privately when my order is confirmed and locked .
Banks are rejecting mortgage since these are way overvalued. Better have enough cash to spend.Yes, they are. A house six doors down went for $2.5 million over the asking price 6 months ago. Zillow has raised its value since then by an additional $1/2 million. Granted this is waterfront Lake Washington, but...
You probably missed the thread but yes this has been happening for a while now. Cars are being delivered missing parts that were ordered originally and will be replaced once they become available. Mostly seats and steering wheel that needs computer chips are being delivered with manual adjustments vs electronic ones.Are you suggesting they will deliver a car to a customer that lacks factory spec items?
My experience is dated. . . . But, that has always been a HUGE no no.
I don’t understand why Porsche cannot make the tachometer of the Macan always have the illumination on. My S has a gray one which is not bad during the day but it becomes another car when lights are on. I had a Base loaner this week and the tachometer is all black an it is almost impossible to read it during the day. This has been a complaint since the car was launched and not corrected yet.View attachment 248373
The wait is over picked up my GTS today. 18-way seats are comfortable, the red tachometer is a little hard to read, the exhaust note is sweet—two keys, Michelin tires, manual steering column adjustment, power steering column adjustment retrofit at some point in time. They do not have a clue when this will be.
It is very dark. It is analogue and without backlit illumination it is not easy to read. The speedometer os even worse.What is the issue with black tachometer during the daylight? I got a '22 GTS on order with lock date several months away, might change it. I currently drive a '12 Q5 with black dials and absolutely no issues during daylight.
Well, first it is a Porsche so not having electric steering wheel is weird. I just rented a Korean car and it had it. My wife is very small and she has a completely different driving position than mine. Thus, having the steering wheel go back all the way up so I can fit in the car nicely after she drove it is a big deal.For what it is worth, we (my wife and I) are not mad... it is not that important a feature for us.
