    Disagree. The 911 series is marketed as a daily driver. Haven’t you heard salesman say it’s built to drive all day at 240 on the autobahn. They’re actually correct! My 2018 C4S is a daily driver. I’ve had several Porsche’s...911s, caymans, Panamera.....all daily drives. That’s what great engineering does. That’s what sets Porsche’s apart from pasta rocket Ferrari’s. This is prolly the dilemna here...is Porsche saying the taycan is a daily or a low usage, monster track car? 4 seats and air suspension screams,daily, to me. But....what do I know! To each their own.

    The Macan, Cayenne and possibly the Panamera are marketed as daily drivers....but definitely NOT the 911

    Enough of the anecdotes, some research is in order......I come from a family of scientists, including an uncle that was a statistics professor :giggle::

    The average Porsche 911 owner drives 4360 miles per year...

    Has any heard or have glean any info as it pertains to Lidar, etc. I thought at some point there was discussions that the Taycan would be getting some Level 2 type features, etc. I mean I get that Porsche owners want to drive their cars and aren't necessarily looking for self driving aides but I would have thought a car like the Taycan would at least be able to park itself ala a Tesla or even other luxury type cars.

    Thanks!
