As such, I’m going to be a little selfish and put aside the 2021 gifts to whip up my Christmas shopping list – if Santa doesn’t have any surprises – for the 2022 edition. loved every part of Chevrolet’s teary Christmas commercial featuring a cool 1966 Chevy Impala, but still prefer the smell of the new car to anything else. So my choices are simple … and affordable or very expensive.
Regularly, I am a father of two and my daily driver is an ordinary station wagon. As such, there’s plenty of room in the back for what looks like tens of thousands of sports car and DIY maintenance accessories. Seriously, it’s like Batman’s cave in there, if he wasn’t a billionaire (genius philanthropist, just to make a pun in the direction of Marvel) and his crime-fighting toys were real. , as safe as possible… real toys. But I digress.
The bottom line about Christmas and Santa Claus – if you’re not the religious type (nothing wrong if you are, of course) – is that such a celebration is always great in terms of hope, of cheerfulness and human well-being in general. . So, we have the right to dream a little. Or more, in my particular case. With an emphasis on more.
As such, for Christmas in 2022, I decided to imagine myself with a few sports cars that only have two seats each. Frankly, if by some miracle (Christmas is always the best time to hope for one) I could have them both, I wouldn’t feel too guilty: me with a kid in a car, the lady, and the other kid in the second . Race (below actual speed limits, or on a suitable racetrack) a bit, then swap cars, drivers, and kids. It would be fun, I guess.
Anyway, let’s see if anyone agrees with my 2022 dream picks. First on the list is the daily driver, a 2022 Mazda MX-5 Miata. I have to admit that since then one of the my dear friends made his lifelong dream of owning one come true, i vowed that someday i would improve it with a newer and cooler example. And what better option would be than playing around town in a more agile Mazda equipped with banned Formula 1 technology from the 1990s.
Don’t raise an eyebrow, just check out the explanation of the pompous Kinematic Posture Control. Now, that’s nothing outrageous, is it? Wait to hear about the track toy. This would be Manthey Racing’s new take on the Porsche 911 GT3 (992). It will be available from the second quarter of next year, enough time for every fan to lament that it costs an arm and a leg on top of the huge paycheck that the German automaker demands to own one. .
Still, owning a Porsche is utterly fascinating, especially one that stands out the right way in the tuning crowd. Manthey was nothing fancy from a technical point of view. They just added a four-way adjustable suspension kit, awesome lightweight Manthey OM-1 wheels, a brake upgrade kit … then some awesome aero upgrades.
The pack contains such things as a front / front lip splitter, cops, rear diffuser, carbon fiber rear spoiler (including side plates), as well as air discs for the rear axle. What can I say ? They got me at “Manthey took up the challenge to further increase the performance of the new Porsche 911 GT3 (992). “Now I am looking forward to their second round of the Nurburgring Nordschleife to see how fast it has become compared to the OEM setup …
