    Thats why I bought a Diesel RR. Not too flashy. If you tell people its a diesel, people will start treating you lowly. LOL

    So, stupid to me was the presence of the "cooler" in the center console.

    While handy for those that need their drinks cold (it seems cold enough to make ice), I'd prefer the storage space. You have to open the lid, then open the cooler lid, then toss your stuff in. About the size of 3-4 smaller water bottles, narrow and deep, and you cannot easily put stuff in or take stuff out due to the dual lids.

    I went to store sunglasses and there is no place to put them. Missing from the roof is an eye-glass storage that is standard on 95% of vehicles made - especially an SUV.

    Actually, unless you want to reach across to the passenger side, there is zero storage other than the "cooler" and the two cup holders (I'm not counting the door, as it is just a big opening on the lowest part of the door).

    I need to keep: sunglasses, regular glasses, keys, phone, phone cord, coin and paper change, pens, maybe some hard candy like mints, spare napkins or Kleenex, maybe a spare charger, and there is just no place to put anything. If you use car play you have to plug in your phone, and there is no place to keep the phone with the "cooler" option. It just dangles on top of the cup holder(s).

    My 911 have more driver storage space.

    Rides and performs like a dream, but horrible storage for the driver. I asked service to find out what it would take to remove the cooler to recover the storage - "we've never done that".

    Obviously this is on me, I picked the vehicle, although the ones I test drove did not have the cooler option.

    Sigh...

    thankfully everyone is fine.

    cops called another driver saw it happen and also just happened to have a dash cam that captured the whole ordeal. Kid and mom in car. Kid lost control doing stupid stuff on fwy, hit our car, went into weeds, switched drivers and took off.

    That will leave a mark on their records.
