Yes, you are right, they seem to remember how to make thrilling cars. Alas, I fear these are the last years of that kind of car.
The tax for the Alpine is around 1400 euros, this year. Next year, it will be around 2500 Euros.
For the Cayman? 20, 000 Euros this year, and probably 30, 000 Euros next year.
And it will be worse and worse, with years passing.
