This video popped up in my recommendations, and I thought it was interesting.

https://youtu.be/0U_5-sROQ30

So, I thought I'd do the same comparison on the UK configuator, and it doesn't appear we are getting as good a deal as our American cousins.

I specc'd a Macan S to the same spec as a Turbo and it came to £61,892.00:

The Turbo with the same spec is £69,339.00:

I may have missed something, but if not, it appears we're paying £7,447 for the extra 85bhp and 70nm of torque.

Yes, hoping to make it. If the weather is fine, I’m going to come the scenic route......

Wish me luck though, as I have developed a habit of breaking 911’s. More to follow on that.......... nooo
