Trying to find good in a 23 mpg hybrid
Porsche. Many years ago I believed that a Porsche in my driveway would be proof of my success. Then my conscience developed and my materialistic desires lessened. Still, a Porsche could be my one vice, right?
Then came 9/11 and I knew I could never have one. While I have no qualms with those whom own a Porsche – virtually all of us are foreign oil guzzlers one way or another – I just can't be responsible for that kind of egregious gas-guzzling. Man, maybe a lobotomy would make life a lot easier, at least more enjoyable!?
Anyway, it's Friday. So, I'm going to start the day with a little positivism (mostly because I have some serious negativity to follow later).
So, what's so good about a 23 mpg Porsche hybrid?
Increased fuel economy and less emissions, of course. Plus, possible hybrid and battery-powered advancement via the wonderful engineers at Porsche. As Smurf likes to say, the more hybrid choices the better, and he's right.
Plus, plug-in Porsche hybrids are just around the corner. Consequently, a Porsche in my driveway is still a theoretical possibility. Thus, a clean and green path to appeasing my childhood vanities is yet possible. Woooohoooo!
Anyhow, the Porsche Cayenne S hybrid goes on sale in November at a starting price of $68,675.
