Unicorn here, first 928 for me. Looks gorgeous, waaay better than in games
Have you ever seen the Mythbusters episode "Reverse Engineering"? The 928 has been plagued for decades with a reputation for having aerodynamics so bad, it's more aerodynamic going backward than forward. So the Mythbusters decided to test it by pulling the body off a 928 and remounting it backwards, and then testing it against a normal 928. (Side note: they never once said "Porsche" or "928". They just called it a German sports car.)

The result was "myth busted." In every single test, the regular 928 was more aerodynamic than the reverse 928. The most obvious difference was the rolling test. Both cars got up to 60 mph side by side, then they put their cars in neutral to see which would roll farther. It eliminated every variable except aerodynamic resistance, and the regular car was far superior.

In my view just says something that the only cars with character in that line up above are the Viper and 240Z.
Case in point with the Pontiac above. “O...G” for sure. ;)
 
Sorry in advance about the bad quality; most of the photos had to be compressed when I was transferring them from device-to-device.

I drove by one of those "Euro Imports" dealerships and found a nice selection of Mercedes' and even a Bentley Continental GT (1st gen).

What appears to be a '90s Mercedes but more importantly: a Peugeot in America!

The fourth Bentley Bentayga I saw within the span of roughly 5 minutes. Couldn't get a shot of the first two, but got a pic of this beautiful white one (2017-2020).

I don't have many good "on the go" shots as you can see, and I don't hop out of my car to photograph cars parked on the street.

Wow, that thing is a rarity!
Considering there were only 220 total made, that will likely be the only one I ever see outside a museum or car meet. I caught this at my local Safeway grocery store.
