Oohh, very nice! I'm an Audi fan as well. I would love to get my hands on an R8. The car you're driving now looks to be an A4?

Nono, it is a RS6, a little bit tuned as well up to 750 PS.
I bought it when my second kid came because the Porsche was too small and I used the last Porsche only for driving to my clinic.
So now she is 2 years and I ordered a GT 3 RS for my personal fun and the Audi remains the family car.

Audi R8 is an exciting car but it has the same Problems as my Porsches. Too small for family .... :lol:

Sweet rides Bert !

Audi came a long long way, beautiful cars that have luxury and power, I'm a fan.

I'm also a HUGE Porsche fan!
My favorite is a 928 hands down !!
The back view of that particular model screams SEXY !!! Coolest headlights on any car ever imo.
The 944 is my second favorite.

Side note * Did you guys know that the lead designer from Audi went over to Kia ?
If you look at the body lines on the 2016,17 and 18's Optimas you will see Audi's fingerprints on them...just some interesting info for the 4 rings crowd

I´m a Porsche Fan since I was 6 years old. The neighbours of us had a 928 for the Dad and each Son had a 911. One of the Sons picked me up every day for a short ride. So I waited every day for him until he came back from university for my daily car drug :lol:
The Dad died 2 years before and then they sold the 928 to a private Porsche Museum because it had only 10 k km and was nearly new all around.
I´m also looking everytime for a good 928 because I like this car also.

Besides from that I started my Porsche career with the age of 29 with my first 993. Since that car I owned 7 other Porsche 911. So it is my first year since 1995 without any Porsche in my Garage. But as I said, I already ordered a 911 GT 3 RS, so that I can stand the time until delivery. :D
But I really miss the sound of an aircooled 911. The engine sound as well as the sound of the doors falling into the lock. That sound is unique.

My last one, which i sold last year

Nice cars.

My wife has ordered the new Porsche Taycan. Expect it in about a year. It doesn't have the sound your used to with Porsche, but it's fast.

For your wife it might be ok :laughing7: :rose:

But I could never drive in a car without sound. If I remember my Racetrack Tool, I get goose pimples and my little friend is growing ... :shock: :mrgreen: :whiteflag:

I was waiting for someone to come along and challenge Tesla !!
I have a strong suspicion that VW will have a better track record than Tesla right out of the gate. They have to protect the Porsche name so I'm sure they've done the homework.
I'm torn here tho because the sound of a Porsche motor is like nothing else but the thrust of electric motors is insane so it is a trade off. Either way its still a Porsche Joe so its gonna be an amazing car..
Congrats to you and your wife

I just hope Harley Davidson doesn't hurt themselves this summer with the launch of the electric motorcycle...

I'd love to ride one tho, MASSIVE amounts of torque on 2 wheels likely turning to 1 Wheel

Thanks. The sound is probably missing but the torque will as you say be great.

Regarding the HD. My wife and I had one HD each. She had the 1200 Sportser and I had the Softail Heritage Classic. I miss them every spring and when someone mention them. Here are a couple of pictures of the bikes. My softail and my wife on her sportster (when she had dyed her hair dark.)ImageImage

Sunsets are beautiful.. Newborn babies are beautiful.. This is freaking AMAZING!!! Looks like you're in an Asian or Kosher market of sorts, the writing on the sale display looks to be either Thai or Hebrew.. I think the ribeye is far enough away from the sciatic :dont: Maybe too early for me to try and figure out this morning. Lol!
