I drove Audi TTRS it was my ex wife’s and it was PINK ! 😳 enough said 

it was a very un-involving car not a patch on my Impreza Sti of years back 

however the Evora is such a special car the position and presence the manners on the road etc 

not driven these electric cars but my hybrid in electric mode is fun but soon wanes after a bit and you ride the car not drive it

...........this year so many kids knocked on door and I was greeted with “love your car” instead of trick or treats !

Ah, the joys of living in a civilized community. Round here, you'd more likely be greeted by a sneering "nice car" comment accompanied by the sight of one of their number standing next to it with a can of petrol and a box of matches to encourage your generosity during the treat dispensing process, :o.

Nope, just the rest of the world are pussies!  The best car I have had in the snow was back in 1985 when I had a lowly Ford Escort popular plus. I remember one particularly bad winter, snow everywhere and that car never failed to get me where I need to get to, snow or not, uphill or down.

The problem these days is the big wide, low profile tyres they seem to fit on every car now, they just sit on top of the snow and don't dig in.

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

The first guy to ride a bull for fun, was a true hero. The second man to follow him was truly nuts!

Whaaat, you’re suggesting I’m not brave? How very dare you sir, I once  accidentally walked into a gay bar so I could use the loo. How brave was that eh??? 😏😂

Joking aside, I know what you mean about wide tyres. When I started driving back in the 60’s,  if we had a snowfall, I would often take my car to a deserted supermarket car park on a Sunday (you could do that then) just to practice skid control. Even my Lotus Cortina which had, what were regarded as wide tyres back in the day, could find enough grip not to be stranded. 

Having said that, fitting the right tyres makes a huge difference to a cars grip in difficult situations, even todays rwd cars with a wide footprint. That is something we generally just don’t do in this country, but the additional grip afforded by proper winter tyres can be quite astonishing.
