What're you towing?

How much can a Prime tow?

The current RAV4 looks pretty great, IMO.

Motorcycles, track car, boat.

It’s rated at 2500 lbs.

That limits track cars, but I could do a Rush or a Radical, or a Legends or Thunder Roadster, etc.

Boat would be over the weight, but 99% of the time, I’d just be towing it 500 yards from dry storage to the ramp. (And the other 1%, I could use the 66 pickup).

F150 Lightning would be great, but I figure it’ll be a year or two at least before I can actually buy one…

And an EV/PHEV Maverick / Ranger / Hyundai Santa Cruz / etc would be good, but they’re not even announced yet.

I figure I can either get thr RAV Prime and call it good enough, or I might have to wait a couple of years to get what I really want.

And if I don’t get thr RAV now, they’ll lose their $7500 tax credit, and loan interest rates will go up (I can borrow at 2.1% right now.)

Yeah I don't picture a unit body FWD based CUV as a good candidate for towing a vehicle. You just seemed a little surprised by it, haha.

The process to buy new, remotely desirable vehicles, is fucking ridiculous these days. You have to put down a deposit months (if not years) in advance.

Yep. I'm not paying new prices for used cars, and I'm not putting a deposit down for something I won't get for a year. Not unless it gets to a point that I absolutely have to.

Oh that’s the one, but they’re so much more expensive. Basically Z06 money.

Grand Sport is the sweet spot, but the prices on them seem crazy.

Hey Snewf, where you scoping an LLV? From what I've been reading, it sounds like they're going to the scrappers. I'd be thrilled to learn that that's not true, though. I'd love to see them all released to the public at stupidly low prices to be driven into the ground, icecream vanned, amazonned, modified, armed to fight the fascists, covered in candy paint, clearcoated to preserve the patina, laminated in a junk-mail theme finish, LS'd, Turboed, 4BT'd, K-swap, 1300 busa'd, electrified, human-powered, solar, jet, rocket, horse-drawn, dogg-drawn, housecat ok nevermind, they just pull in all directions equally...

yeah i read that the new GT3 RS can corner harder on on its DOT-legal tires than a Porsche Cup car can on slicks.

kia ev6 ... total basic bro EV car from behind the wheel. I test drove one this morning and was extremely irritated by how the steering wheel completely obstructed the speedometer readout on the gauge cluster. For much taller drivers or for people who like the steering wheel oddly high, maybe it would be ok. But that's a huge pet peeve for me, and I could barely consider anything else about the car. It'd be like trying to evaluate how I feel about a car that required me to sit outside the car. Like... what are we doing here? big modern display for really representing ONE signgularly most importnat DRIVE VARIABLE.... Speed, and it was COMPLETELY obstructed? Like... WTF.

Praga Bohema... $1.3 M, 700 hp, 900 kg, a trackday racecar tuned to supercar outputs. But after the blah-ness of the EV6 test drive this morning, such a frippery is so alien that it just... seems irrelevant. I am getting curmudgeonly in my middle age.

Also, the current C8 corvette still pisses me off, with its mixed up styling, wacko interior, ketchup paint, camaro grills, lack of a manual transmission, and almost nobody buying one for anywhere near minimum spec. It's ridiculous that a typically specified one of those goes for over $100k.

I've been out with a praga r1 on track a number of times. the bohema is basically double everything (weight and power) for 5x the price. the r1 is a great car and the one i'd get for 1/10 the price used.
