Are you a current or recent car shopper who bought an EV and then installed solar – or who had solar already, making the decision to go electric easier?
Are you a recent EV buyer (past 3 months) as a result of manufacturer incentives and dealer discounts on these vehicles, including year-end deals? Were you convinced to buy an EV after finding a good end-of-year deal, or due to uncertainty around which EVs will no longer qualify for full/partial EV tax credits in 2024?

    Why go for AWD and ruin the fun in a sports car that's probably not going to be your daily driver?

    And for those people who get one as a daily and drive it through winter: Why???

    No. AWD has its advatages, but ultimately it spoils the balance of the car.

    I had AWD in my 1996 Porsche Turbo and it didn't spoil any fun, just have to balance it properly.

    I agree, stick with the RWD.

    I would argue that RWD is actually less exciting, you're constantly feathering the throttle to avoid unwanted rear tire wear or attention from the police and/or 911 dialing pedestrians. With AWD (from my experience in modern Porsche Turbos) you just get frightening, sweat inducing acceleration-even in the rain from gears 2+.
