Turbo S vs 911R
« on: July 25, 2016, 12:46:29 pm »
Someone said they'd want a Turbo S for a daily if they won the lotto. I thought that was a really weird choice.

Bra.  You couldn't even daily drive a 350Z.  Stop acting like you're some hard ass that'd daily drive a car without AC or a radio.

911R can be equipped with A/C and a radio though. FAIL.

And if I won the lottery I wouldn't be commuting 500 miles a week. Z was great when I was working from home. You might as well say 'I would go with the Turbo S cause it has better gas mileage'. If you won the lotto what does that shit matter?

You get an A for effort but maybe next time! Don't take it so personally!

Yeah, the Turbo S continues to get more and more absurd.  IMO, it's the perfect daily driver.  If I won the lottery, that's what I'd daily.

BTW Mr H this was not meant as a call out, I just thought that was really interesting. Calm down

For me, 911 R no question. Like I said the Z was pretty good before I started to have to commute with it. I think that was the turning point. If I won the lotto I wouldn't work so a hardcore sports car for a daily would work for sure.

If I won the lottery, give me an all weather capable weapon that doesn't beat me up.  I'd have plenty of money for track toys too (BAC mono, GT3 RS, etc), but I wouldn't daily drive those in snowy Ohio.

I wouldn't abandon all my friends and family for better weather.  If I won the lottery, I'd have a vacation home too, but I wouldn't move away from Ohio :huh:

911R. Because 3 pedals.

Give me one without A/C or radio either. That shit is useless in California (where I'm obviously going to stay if I win the lottery).

I wouldn't daily either down here because both our to exotic. If I was offered a 911R at MSRP I'd pick that.

But I totally agree with Mike that the Turbo S is the much better daily.

Just noticed Civic is an option in the poll. Given that this thread was started by Sporty, definitely that all the way.

To be fair, the RR is probably the coolest FWD car ever.

Lotto money = you will probably need new friends, and redefined relationships with a lot of family. Plus lotto money = no need for a home base anyway. 2% a year of a couple million dollars = me n' wifey will be luxury nomads, with me hitting up tracks on various cars & bikes around the world. "Jeeves, send the Exige V6 and RC213-S to Suzuka in two weeks :golfclap:" So in a way to me the concept of a lotto money daily driver doesn't make sense.... hundreds of millions of dollars in the bank, why limit myself to one car, one house, one location etc.? Dream bigger ;)

But for the sake of the thread, between these two, I would prefer to jump in the 911 R for a milk run. Naturally it would be up at our summer house on a mountain. Launch control, vacuum cleaner induction noises and foul weather traction don't hold a candle to nailing 8800 RPM downshifts echoing off of rock walls :wub: If I had lotto $$$ I would never experience a nasty cold up north winter again.....

Why not add the 991.2 GT3?  Less limited than the R but will have three pedals.

I've been all up and down that state (well, to an extent). I can't remember a single time I wasn't using AC. If it gets over 70, the AC gets turned on.

And I like music when I drive, so some sort of music system is necessary.

I haven't used the A/C in years in my car so I pulled it out last month. None of the houses I've lived in in this area have A/C either so I don't feel it's needed. :huh:

That's nice. You making a point not to use A/C though doesn't mean everyone else has to though. You are like those guys who run around in shorts in the winter. "What? What? I don't even feel it. I'm not cold. What? What? Bro it feels like summer *jogs in place*"
