    Except I don’t think it will fit in the garage.

    991.1 S Cab and cayenne for if I need 4 seats, it's a good combo and the 911 can be fun as you can really chuck it around corners with only 400 hp

    I'm enjoying this thread, hearing about everybody's daily. But, there is a piece of missing information to help others understand the choices.

    Do you have corners as part of your daily drive ?

    In my case: yes, a lot, both high and low speed.

    It’s a solid car. It’s my favorite mclaren. I would have kept it had a 765LT allocation not become available to me.

    BMW M4, great coupe for everyday. Fun, reliable, economical, and comfortable enough for me.

    I really like it. The ride is really nice as it is a 1/2 ton. Interior is nice. Infotainment is great. Diesel is plenty peppy and the fuel mileage can’t be beat. Best truck I’ve had in years and I have driven them all. F150, Dodge 1/2 ton (with and without diesel), Tundra (great truck outdated everything and terrible fuel mileage) and I have had all the 3/4 ton diesels that beat the snot out of you.

    Interesting perspective.

    I daily a Giulia QV. I absolutely love it.

    Downside is my "weekend car" AMG GTS barely gets driven now. Test drove a new R8 and 991 turbo and neither felt all that exciting either.

    I find myself browsing here and Rennlist contemplating between a 458 and 991.2 GT3.

    I owned a beautiful Sapphire Blue GT3 and while I consider it as close to perfection as one can get as far as reliable, powerful
    transportation, I ended up trading for a 458 and I find myself spending a lot of time in the garage just staring at the shape.
    I also got caught in buying the GT3 when it was at its peak price and the bottom fell out over the last 6 months. Porsche will
    be coming out with the 992 GT3 soon which will further hurt the price of the earlier model.
    I guess if you purchase one now you will benefit from these prices. They are wonderful cars, but I pass a ton of Porsches every
    day and without the wing and the cool wheels, it looks very similar to every contemporary 911. The 458 is such a beautiful design in my opinion and the model is no longer produced which will result in steady resale since it has turned out to be a very popular Ferrari. This is the first Ferrari that I have purchased where
    I don't think about buying the next model. I plan on keeping it for a long while.
    The engineering has moved so far forward from its predecessor and while I wouldn't say that it would be quite as reliable as a GT3, I am confident that
    you would love driving the Ferrari and it would make a very cool stable mate to your QV.
