    It would indeed be nice. Far fewer vehicles in Europe are sold with this hole in the body structure. It is forced upon the American buyer as a 'feature'.

    Back when I lived in Japan, one of my friends bought the Sportec modified Audi RS4. It was a sick car.

    Agreed. Hopefully those ridiculous roof rack bars similarly have a delete option, too. Good grief.
    Keep exterior smooth, sleek, and without noisy / mileage-robbing novelties. Be like an airplane!

    Way too much car for me. If, and it’ll likely never happen, I’d go with an MB AMG wagon. And it probably still has the giant weight-adding, trouble-causing, future leaking-and-creaking, headroom-robbing gaping hole in the roof known as a sunroof or moonroof.

    The A6 wagon looks good. That’s not a likely car for me either but far more realistic than the RS6.

    My next car, and I don’t know when it’ll happen, will likely be a Tesla.

    I know there are a number of VW GTI fans here. The Mk8 was debuted in Geneva and while it's more modern, it has cheaper materials and build to pay for the big infotainment console. The tactile controls are gone, too. It'll sell, but it's no longer a car for drivers. RIP, GTI.

    Does it feel like a car that weighs twice what a 911 does?

    I'm not sure if this is a sarcastic question?

    A Taycan weighs 4800-5100lbs or so.

    A 992 911 is 3300-3600lbs.

    The last 911 to weigh 1/2 of a Taycan went out of production in 1983.

    I've never actually driven a 911, anyway.

    To me, the cornering felt unnatural. The steering is really good, but the complete lack of body roll feels strange.

    0-100 happens *quickly*...

    Legit question, although I exaggerated a bit on the weight. I believe 911s run 1,430 to 1,670 kg, while the Taycan is 2,220 to 2,305 kg, so the light end vs the heavy end is 60% again (which I suppose is all battery).

    Thanks for sharing your experience. I'm keen to see how they do.

    Canít you just lower the seat? For that price it should have adjustable seats.
