My 911 is the fastest car I've driven and it's scary fast.. Compare trap speeds with that M5

All you had to do was have an open mind and drive an x5m to know this car was going to be a complete return to form. If the M guys could make a 5300lb SUV do those things you just knew the 1000lb lighter more powerful AWD m5 was going to be a winner.

And the F90 looks good. It lost the saggy fat mid section of the F10. Got back to looking like a sedan with 6 pack abs.

Yup.

This and the new e63S wagon are my favorite cars out right now. They do everything. AWD for trips to the mountains, perfect DD/family luxury hauler, 600hp, decent transmissions, mileage isn’t even that bad considering. I have no use for a 2 seat sports or track car, I prefer super fast sedans.

I'm really really hoping the M1 and M2 red buttons on the steering wheel are for each of the missiles, otherwise that's dumb. Rest of the car sounds great!

I remember the days where you’d need to mod the f&$k out of your car to get it to 10 seconds at 1/4 mile.

Cool car I guess if you want something identical to it's competition. Also zero interest in a Luxo barge muscle car for that kinda coin.

I have no use for a 600 hp Land yacht, I prefer lightweight cars in which fun can be had at reasonable speeds.
