While getting my BMW serviced, I decided to go check out Porsche right down the street. It's actually my first time in a Porsche. I've always had an interest in the brand but never had the time to go see one, actually go sit in one in person. With lots of time to kill, I decided why not and go see all the cars they had on the lot. I apologize for the low quality images (only had my cell phone at the time)
I was surprised to see at GT4 at the dealer. It's a track enthusiast's dream with a that mid engined design and most of the unnecessary items trimmed down. Getting to sit in one was definitely a plus! The interior was less clustered than a typical Cayman. The knobs on the steering wheel were gone and only a manual transmission is offered.
911 Turbo S Cabriolet
One of the most expensive cars on the lot today was this Turbo S Cabriolet. it was something truly special. The red interior somehow worked really well overall. The build quality is superb as expected but one of the buttons was rattling. Not sure if it was just this car, but all the other buttons of the same style weren't rattling. The seating was comfort especially with that 32 way adjustable seating. I also sat in a Turbo S and the roofline was quite far from my head in the lowest seating position. There was leather literally everywhere expect the sport chrono at the center of the dash but I'm sure one could make it leather if desired. Porsche is know for it's wide array of leather and trim options that do get quite pricey. The leather felt more plasticly than the BMW M3's leather. The M3 leather is more smooth and soft while this one was more firm and slippery. I could definitely see the appeal of Porsche's in the entire realm of things. It does feel more pricey than the M3 and clearly they are way more expensive than an M3 unless you get a base Boxster or Cayman. The backseat of the 911 is pretty much useless. I couldn't even fit back there. There is almost no legroom and my head was hitting the top of the roof. It's more for smaller children and probably best just for extra storage. The visibility was alot better than I expected. I could see out of the front very easily. The only downside for the coupes was that the rear window didn't provide that much visibility. It was terrible but the glass hatch is simply just small.
It's a huge car, likely I mean BMW 7 series big. However, it seems to be loaded with a lot less tech features. No Porsche has a head up display and that's a huge downside for me especially when it comes to a family sedan or SUV. I mean it has the space for all the necessary equipment. The backseats were quite comfortable and seem to be able to be individually adjusted. There's no middle seat in the back and there's only basic temperature and seat controls and the ability to lock and unlock the car which I thought was neat.
Nice to see some high end SUV's here. The SUV was easy to get in and out of. It doesn't ride all the high once I got into the driver's seat. It felt lower to the ground and thus more planted.
A bigger Macan, I suppose, with some more features in the center console. It had a lot of off roading gizmos that really seem unnecessary, like I mean what soccer mom would take this to the desert? But hey, I guess you could.
