I’m still here. Just a lot busier due to a project I’ve been working on, but I’m very happy to be home for a long weekend to get some rest.
I was especially pleased to be picked up from the airport in this:
A brand new Porsche Cayenne Turbo which my dad has for the weekend. Obviously I couldn’t miss the chance of driving it, so I went for a little evening blast.

This is by far the most powerful car I’ve driven with a 4.8 litre V8 Turbo making 500hp. The torque is phenomenal, hardly any lag and it is simply explosive. I can vouch for the 4.4 second 0-60.

It’s such a nice place to be inside. I seem to always forget how nice new cars are, so comfortable and smooth. The DSG 8 speed gearbox is pretty good. It’s great for crusing but the gears are pretty short, so you seem to spend a lot of time shifting.

Good’ol Porsche.
