But more to do with how they sound aka, neat so good.
Porsche heard the criticism though and now it's announced the return of the Flat-Six [INAUDIBLE] turbos In the GTS model 718 bucks or in Cayman.
Now Theseus will be even more hard pressed to not buy the already Goldilocks like GTS when it hits showroom floors.
You guys, the lucid air is finally getting a debut in its production trim.
It's been a long time coming, I think at least four years now.
But the company has announced its plan to reveal the car in April in New York City.

That's Seeks to well and truly take on the best from the Big D. Can it do it?
Who knows but a billion dollar investment from the Saudi public investment fund will certainly help improve the odds.
The 2020 Genesis G 90 is a big polarizing sedan.
Some people hate the grill or the wheels, but the one thing that's really hard to eight is its value proposition.
See you only get three choices when you go to spec a 2020 G 90, the drive train and the interior and exterior colors.
There are no options because everything is standard.
And just how much does all this luxury and technology cost?
Try just over 78 grand for the top tier VA model with all wheel drive.
It's a hell of a thing for a car that like it or love it, has some pretty bold styling.
Something that's becoming more of a rarity with every passing model here.

Porsches icon Turbo S is in many ways the first true competitor to Tesla's mighty Model S. It's wildly quick, features super competent handling, and build quality that should make Elon weep.

The Triple S manager is a paltry 192 miles per charge while the Tesla Model S on 21 inch wheels gets around 325 miles.
Will this be a huge deal for most owners?
But will it be a deal breaker for some high end EV shoppers Absolutely, Bentley's Mulsanne has been the company's flagship model since its debut in 2010 and now it's getting ready to go the way the Dodo bird but it's not going out quietly.
