I did the same thing 2 yrs ago. Changed the S8 for Ghibli & '11 911TT for a Cali then 612. Look back imo Porsches are great cars but Italians are fun...

Congrats

BladeMD is an unknown quantity at this point
Ive got a 360 3-pedal and just added my first German. '11 Cayenne TT. Love them both! Such a huge difference but both very fun!

Hey that's a good arrangment. We loved the Porsches but wanted a change.

Can't blame you a bit. The Cali and Ghibli are great rides! If there was a 5 passenger Ferrari, I'd go there. Looking forward to the reviews of the Maserati SUV

Well there were four cars mentioned, which two? Not trying to be dense here, just not sure what comparison you want. They are all four very good drives in their own ways.

kinda of off topic but I explicitly did NOT buy a RR sport or full size based on ride quality. Presumably this was due to my reasonable, legitimate & measurable hatred for pirelli....that was on all 3 different wheel size versions that i test drove about 6-8mo ago. Everything else was fine but the truck felt like it was riding on rocks constantly making mountains out of mole hills so to speak, what buns do you have on it and how does its ride compare with presumably the pirellis on your QP GTS, which I also know ride quality is unwittingly sacrificed by running a pirelli stock?


and the chap who asked about a compare... the new cali TT really isn't anything like the GT-S or other cars, its equally in its own catagory all together.


***btw, yes, I publicly denounce pirelli as a specific use tire and all together as a brand as they genuinely make junk when compared to even just mich, in each category.

The RR has Continental Cross Contact, it seems to be an all weather tire suitable for off road use which it has done well with. Picks up nails pretty well too but I take the RR off road in West Texas and it has a great ride out there. I also use it in the piney woods of East Texas where it can take the mud holes that some pickups can't get through. The RR is kind of a different animal than the QP GTS even though it's got luxury appointments. It rides higher like a truck so it's not a low luxury ride like the QP GTS which is much smoother but also way more connected to the road.

To fully appreciate the versatility of the RR, you need to have some off road or really bad road time in it. Then you will see where it shines. In places where my kidneys would be bounced out by a standard truck, the RR just rides smoothly over all kinds of ruts and holes.
