    Looking to spend $100k-ish (+ or - $10k) on a nicer looking sports car. Leaning towards the Porsche Taycan or Model S. I know both of those are electric but not opposed to getting a gas-powered car too. Like the Mercedes CLS 450 too. I like the Model S interior and self driving capability but like the Porsche Tacyan exterior a lot more. Any thoughts between the two EVs or any other car suggestions? Don't like trucks or SUVs.

    practically speaking the porsche and tesla make the most sense. But practically speaking im not spending 100k on a car.
    So if it's 100k then Im getting a sports car that is fun

    Really not much at this price point -- a loaded Accord turbo might be an option.

    Fleet of drones carrying your Lay-z-boy is the answer.

    Since current jet packs are gas powered, dirty, stinky and requires protective gear.

    With a fleet of drones there is redundancy. And traveling on a $2k reclining chair is the pinnacle of luxury.

    I would go Taycan or 911 depending on what kind of car you want.

    model s needs a design change.
