That’s an easy statement to make, & I’m not necessarily disagreeing as I’d prefer a P car over an overpowered off-road truck too….but that’s partly b/c I already have an overpowered off-road truck in my ‘20 Raptor (tuned) lol!!If I was going to spend $165k on a vehicle it would have two doors.. be made in Germany... And have a flat 6 with turbos.
I had a boxster, it was an absolute blast to drive but I ultimately sold it shortly after I bought my raptor. My old boss had a 911 turbo s a 2016 I believe. That was a damn special car. I was considering getting an R. I'll see if the market calms down in a year or two but this is stupid, 150k and up for a pickup truckI have a Porsche, it ain’t that special. If I had to pick only one, a Porsche or an R…it’s an R everyday of the week and twice on Sunday. But, I’ve never driven an R before…maybe I’m wrong? Wait..no, I’m not wrong…it’s an R!
I'm not, just sayin' what I would do with that kind of money for a vehicle....heck, I paid less for my first house 25 years ago.Uh, fellas, do as you will. But are we really comparing a 911 to a Raptor? That’s akin to deciding between Twiggy and Raquel Welch in their heyday.
I owned two 911s, and I’d drive them to the gym and the track.
I’ve owned four Raptors and when I’m not driving past Starbucks, I’ve driven them to Moab.
I totally get it. Unless I was loaded, meaning millions in bank, I’d never pay that kind of dough for a Raptor. But I would for a Turbo S.I'm not, just sayin' what I would do with that kind of money for a vehicle....heck, I paid less for my first house 25 years ago.
Well put. I have a 2015 Turbo S and a 2017 e85 Raptor. The Raptor was $59k in 2017, I just can’t bring myself to pay Turbo/Turbo S money for a F150.That’s an easy statement to make, & I’m not necessarily disagreeing as I’d prefer a P car over an overpowered off-road truck too….but that’s partly b/c I already have an overpowered off-road truck in my ‘20 Raptor (tuned) lol!!
But if we are truly being neutral here….even if the R was MSRP equivalent to a Porsche turbo etc. (it’s not….& Porsches get markups too, even not so special ones) - the Porsche can only carry 1 other person & minimal luggage, it’ll go in the winter if AWD &/or snow tires…but it’ll make you cry every time you take it out in that kinda weather while grenading the resale value, it is a rough ride over rough pavement - & obviously can’t go off-road, it can’t tow shit, can’t haul shit, it can’t jump shit, & doesn’t sound as good as the Raptor R either nor will it have as much power even @ the tip top trim levels.
Everyone sitting around here acting like it’s normal to even be able to purchase a factory vehicle like the R, it’s truly amazing this thing (or the TRX or wrangler 392 or Bronco Raptor) even exist, let alone potentially be cross-shopped w/ European luxury sports cars
