Our MD swapped his Macan for a Taycan. I quite like it, I wouldn’t say it looks bad or ugly, just different to the norm, not always a bad thing. Looks are also very subjective so no one is either right or wrong. It’s an impressive car to say the least

It's so people who don't want to drive an ugly car can have one...the Audi is SO much better looking imo. The Porsche headlights (and surrounding panels) are awful on the Taycan..looks like a five year old designed them!

The Porsche may look like it’s crying more than the concept version but the Audi looks like mess to me. Each to their own.

@cue2 That artega looks decent, a tad more proper sportscar lines on the back, although im not sold on the front, its a bit too bulbous for the Ferrari-look

As for the Taycan, i think it looks a bit overdone, and the weird arches around the headlights remind me of McLaren (which in this context is a bad thing), but i much prefer it to the Macan. One is a glimpse into the future, the other very much the past, and an SUV

As for the Audi, i much prefer that to the regular cross-over e-trons, and probably over the porsche as well, it looks far more generic audi, but to me that is what electric cars need to become, electric CARS rather then ELECTRIC cars. Spec it out with a decent set of wheels and a nice colour, and that is quite a nice thing, and id much rather have the audi on the drive then the taycan

A light metallic green Giulia GT on the A30 in Sunningdale. That was a pleasant surprise :)

I passed a small garage in Devon today and on the forecourt all covered in dirt and for sale were
A Celica convertible
A Renault 4
A Ford Mustang
A Triumph Stag
There were other there I can't remember. I should have taken a picture. A weird collection but it made me smile!

Isn’t that an Edd China special?
That’s the one, worlds fastest shed! I didn’t realise it was actually road legal, had some advertising boards on it so probably how it’s still going!

A Lotus Esprit looking great despite the green paint, and making a lovely noise as it went past me on my bike.
Not certain if it was just a sports exhaust or one of the rare V8s.. On the road between Grimsargh and Longridge this afternoon.

A black Rover P6 trundling down Langley Lane, Goosnargh. The quintessential old man's car.

Bauer 3-Series. I also saw bright yellow Fiat 128 3P which looked and sounded fantastic but sadly couldn't get a picture. I may invest in a dashcam.

Yesterday I saw a Vauxhall Tigra. I thought these had all been turned into baked bean tins years ago. Taping over the Vauxhall badge seems a good move.

Was Baur the constructor or was T-Baur a play on words or German for T-Bar?

Two identical bright yellow Lamborghini Huracan spiders crawling around Blackburn. Of all the cars, in all the towns 🙄
