Somebody seems to forget he has a cab which is slower and not tuned. 997 Turbo S coupe is a great car but it's no Ferrari. Being fastest in a straight line isn't everything. Want a real sports car Porsche get a GT3 RS

I now know I hate Mercedes unless is a black series, the merc is not very nice looking inside and out...

At this point the decision is between the

Porsche cayenne turbo
Porsche cayenne GTS
BMW M5
My brother had a 2011 and 2012 550 and i HATED that car. Terrible car with no driver feel, it was depressing to drive. When I drove it i hoped to God that the M5 wasn't comparable to it in any way...I'm glad that my hopes were answered. Buy the M5.

Agree -
But 550i should have a different audience

OP, a fully modded 550i makes at the crank about what an M5 makes at the wheels...and the M5's drivetrain is much, much better. The handling difference might be smaller, but it will exist...and the M5 will feel connected and alive through all of it...a 550i just won't ever quite get that. And that's a stock car. With any mods at all, an M5 will really be out of reach in any way.

Garage List
May be a Jag F Type R, this is going to be some car, less expensive than a Turbo S.
Or if you really need rear seats a Panamera GTS.
It's tough picking your next ride but great fun, I usually start about 2 months after delivery of the current one. Which means I will probably start next month
