Lmao, yeah Porsche purists hate the Cayenne. I love it though. The interior is what grabbed us on the Porsche. She has 500hp and 0-60 in 4.2 seconds. Almost as fast as the Evora 400. Not bad for a SUV that’s 2,300lbs heavier. I bet it’d win in a head to head actually. The launch control, sports tach and 4 wheel drive make it pretty easy to straight line race. The Lotus would obviously destroy it on a road track though lol.
I’ve had other sports cars but never an exotic. Absolutely in love with the car! It handles so much better than anything I’ve ever driven. I was first looking at an Elise after seeing one. I liked it and it was fun to drive... but I then saw the Evora 400 and tried it out. I felt like it was a better fit. It had room to take a few suitcases for a road trip which was a bonus. The Elise seemed to more of a fun car to track but getting in and out wasn’t fun. And the interior doesn’t seem like a super car. My wife didn’t care for it really. So I started looking at older Evoras in the $35-$45K range. But then I learned of all the charges in 2017 and esp liked the lower door threshold, and the new interior, the safety upgrades, and of course the 400hp lol. Was looking at the same car without the black pack but it had a rebuilt title. It had some vibration issues. Gave him a couple months and went to try it again and the brakes still shook like crazy. So I passed on it. I saw this one on eBay and bid on it. I went from looking to get an Elise at around $25-$30K to jumping up to an Evora with only 2,500 miles on it. It was in pristine condition. The funny part is the guy selling it lived 500 miles away in South Carolina. Bought it on eBay and we flew to get it. Turns out I’m working a deal (I’m in sales) where the seller worked and I knew everyone he works with. Small small world
