I saw a number of them on a trailer heading to the dealer yesterday. I still like my 2020 better
I guess ‘need’ is a strong way to put it- part of what I do is a customer facing and the car plays a part in that for me.
Luxurious, fun, and presence. You want to be seen, right?
Do a specialty lease on a vintage car.
Any boring bloke can grab a new S-class Benz.
Roll up in a piece of well-preserved history… you have arrived.
I’ve driven a panamera for a day. It was a 2020 model.
The taycan is a superior driving car comparatively. Handling and steering-wise.
Panamera is fat And soft.
wow 2k car allowance…that is nice.
Or are you a professional truck driver?
I don’t know about “fat” since the Panamera weighs considerable less. My guess would be you drove a Panamera with low-end suspension vs a Taycan with upgraded suspension. The reviews I’ve seen would seem to indicate they are very very close in performance.
In any case, I was more of the “why not consider both” camp rather than exclude it.
Honestly, for $2k/mo … I don’t know. I think most of those discussed here are pretty commonplace. At least where I live. Certainly Rovers are. A bit less big Porsche sedans.
Can you lease a pre-owned Rapide?
not sure if the AMG GT 4-door can be had under 2k but it could be an option
Maybe he’s a sports agent. You can’t drive your baller clients around in a Corolla. On the show, Ballers, I believe the Rock drove a RR and then a Bentayga, among others. Also can’t go wrong with an Escalade ESV if you’re balling.
It’s a little early but the Kia Carnival Limo is really nice to chauffer clients around.
Lexus LC? But this rarified air is def something that I don’t know much about!
Personally, I want my agent driving a Corolla. Tells me he is not ripping me off. Only areas of business I can see wanting to show off is either in a pyramid scheme or financial advisor. “Look at what you can do if you just follow my lead and make money like me!”
But, sorry, sorry, we are off topic.
I still like the pre-owned Rapide idea. I never see those on the road, so that would grab my attention. Is that new electric Hummer available yet? That would certainly grab attention for a little while, at least.
The usual problem with “help me decide” threads is that the OP can never decide.
But how often do we get a $2000/mo budget? Wait, who’s this car for again?
We’re in the commercial real estate development game, so we see lots of big cars: escalades, evena few Rolls Royces, etc…
Test driving the Taycan 4s tomorrow, but I think this thread just reconfirmed the RRS for me.
Just my opinion, but with a $2k budget, an hse rrs would probably be one of the last on my list. Why wouldn’t you just get a full size RR at that point, more comfort and “presence”.
Alternatively, you could get a fleet of Nissan Leafs (Leaves?) - that’s one way to be seen.
An RRS SVR is probably in that ballpark
Nice car, even with the silver paint.
Get a big Nissan (Armada? GTR?) followed by a row of Leaves. Like a duck leading it’s ducklings around town to fancy commercial real estate deals.
Convert some of that unused Class A office space to residential. Help the unhoused!
