Evora 400 vs Alfa Gulia Quad? Help me decide

Porsche where the engine monster has a tendency to eat the engine internals or where on the GT models the suspension wants to break free through the top of the body work.

Can things go wrong? Of course. But not usually catastrophic unlike others.

Just like the buffoons that slate Lotus you’re slating a brand for the sake of it with no idea of the real facts or numbers. 

Utter rubbish.🙄

Apologies. I need to stop reading Porsche specialist websites such as these http://www.revolution-porsche.co.uk/news/ims-bearing-failure-symptoms-and-how-to-spot-them and also seeing the real stories on the various Youtube and other petrol focused websites.  There is a difference between the repeating of a 40 year old saying that is more akin to a folklore than actually reading recent occurrences of events by real owners and specialists. The real utter nonsense in my point of view is how this particular brand is held as being unimpeachable.

Next you'll be telling me that the fairy doors I'm seeing on the houses in the IoM are not real.  😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣


Alcohol. Sex. Tobacco. Drugs. Chocolate.  Meh! NOTHING in this world is as addictive as an Evora +0. It's not for babies!

real facts or numbers aside, personally i felt like i was playing Russian roulette with a catastrophic huge expense engine failure everytime i started mine,  so i sold up..

the internet had a big part to play in that..for sure,  as only 2 people I  know of in real life had major problems with engines that required total rebuilds ..2 was enough for me to get very edgy .... i didnt want   be the 3rd !....  i just couldnt stop thinking about how much their repair bills were.. 

 the fact remains, some of the engine designs have inexcusable inherent design flaws.., then when you see the suspension turrets failing on recent models , you have to wonder how such an important stress related area in a sport car  can be incorporated and from what i have read been ignored by the factory?

to be fair you could pick a number of design flaws with all cars, lotus included.  it just seems flaws with Porsches  are major items and  cost way more to repair  SHOULD it effect yourself..

Was exactly the same reason why I moved from a 996 to my Evora. Bore-score and crankshaft bearing wear almost inevitable on the 3.6 M96. That, plus rust issues taking hold quite firmly, too.  

More modern 911s also absolutely enormous now; more GT than sports car.
