    Spotted a new BMW 650i Gran Coupe on the road, today... That's the 4-door version of the 6-series... It's very nice...

    I like the 650i too, the 4 door one, one of my fav BMW's on the market today.

    Saw a white Gran Coupe this morning, and some kind of electric motorcycle.

    Saw a black Tesla over the weekend with Mass plates. I guess the suit by the auto dealers to block Tesla in MA isn't working.

    ...red Dodge Dart near Montour and Levick in NE Philly.

    Darts must be getting out there finally. I saw a black one (or was it red?) yesterday, and a white one today.

    Saw a privately owned Verano and a white Tesla sedan this morning.

    I spotted my first Ford C-Max in the parking garage at work today. It had that ehh styling to it in natural light.

    Selling briskly, I'm seeing lots of them.

    Spotted a new RR yesterday, what a beast. Looking forward to checking it out in NY. :shades:

    A surgeon I work with bought a new black Tesla S and gave me a quick spin around the block yesterday. Impressive acceleration for sure, kinda strange, though, without any exhaust note. Not so sure I like the interior that much. While the seat was comfortable, it could use a better center console with real cupholders. For that kind of money I'd get a BMW or a Benz.

    Do you know which version it is?

    '17 F150 Crew 2.7; '67 Coronet R/T; '14 Town&Country Limited; '09 LR2 HSE. 44-car history and counting!

  • fintailfintail Posts: 42,211
    Saw a white Tesla S today, probably one of the ones I've seen before. Also a couple of new Fusions with private plates, don't seem to be as rental-happy as before.
  • iwant12iwant12 Posts: 269
    It's an S model. He said he checked off every box when he ordered it 4 months ago.
  • anythngbutgmanythngbutgm Posts: 4,277
    I've seen a few new Fusions as well. Still think the lower trim levels make the car look fat and droopy. Hard to explain but everytime I see one go by it looks like the thing is weighed down like they've got a full load of people when there's nobody actually in it!

    I actually think I would spend a couple of bucks more and buy a Taurus instead :blush:

    The S is the model, but there are various levels of batteries and power. I was just curious because all the reviews so far have been of the top-of-the-line range/power version and I'd like to know more about the base version as far as real-world range and power. I'm actually not sure the base is available yet. That's the one that is supposed to start at something like $55k.

    I've seen a surprising amount of hybrids.

    For the Taurus, the facelift isn't bad.

    The new Range Rover in white in the neighborhood. The tires look like rubber bands on those big rims...perfect for off-roading I'm sure.

    I think he paid around 90 for it. It's the Performance series. He said it could go 500 miles per charge, but the website says more like 265 miles per charge. I'll ask him again next time I see him what kind of mileage he's getting. The base (53 K) on the website says it achieves 160 miles per charge. Heck, I could drive to work, drive to the lake afterward, and back home easily on that.

    "He said it could go 500 miles per charge"

    He's going to be sorely disappointed. Guess it's like 'that baby'll do 170' or 'yep, gets 70 mpg'...

    Saw a dirty dark colored Tesla sedan today, unplated, and a new SantaFe Sport with decent body damage down the passenger side.

    Yesterday on the highway there were 2 black Range Rovers in front of me. While still in sight, another black Range Rover and a black Evoque passed me.

    I think the long wheel base and the lower body kit type style contribute to this.

    I've yet to see a Dart outside of rentals, kind of odd given how long it's been out.
  • jpp5862jpp5862 DenverPosts: 1,085
    Saw a new MKZ yesterday, silver 2.0 Ecoboost. Not a bad looking car, but definitely not the car Lincoln needs to make a comeback, much less survive.
  • jpp5862jpp5862 DenverPosts: 1,085
    I see a lot of new Fusions as well. The front is appealing but for me it's just too big, the back goes on forever. If I wasn't a car guy I would have picked up the last generation when they were trying to unload them for $7k off. Decent car for the money.
  • ateixeiraateixeira Posts: 72,587
    Saw an Audi A1, a first.

    Then an older Skyline.

    A new Hyundai minivan, not a 12 passenger model but not an Entourage either.

    Mazda Demio, also. Lots of small cars and transport vans there, basically.

    They drive on the left and that reminded me of my visits to Suriname.
  • anythngbutgmanythngbutgm Posts: 4,277
    Spotted my first, looked like a non X/T model with all the trimmings. I didn't realize they were on sale yet.

    Also a gorgeous weekend brought out all the "toys" so a few Lexus IS convertibles, a couple of new Z4's, SLK's, a 911 Turbo Cabrio...
  • fintailfintail Posts: 42,211
    I'd have expected some exotics in a shady money hideout like the Caymans.

    Only a couple, an older SL .... can't remember the others.

    Saw tons of that in Miami on my way back. Probably drug money.

    It is funny, though. "World Headquarters" with only 6 staff there.
  • fintailfintail Posts: 42,211
    Oh yeah, Miami is a paradise for untraceable money. When I was there last year, I saw more exotics on South Beach than I could count - and don't ask where the money comes from.

    I would have expected Caymans to be like Switzerland in a way, but maybe just not enough of a road network to make a cool car fun.
