Here’s the thing. I like big, burly and boisterous cars. I appreciate their being, and the idea of tagging your family around in one is appealing. Also, as much as a car as vigorously entertaining as the new E63 S had you write on it the way you did has me see no point in disagreement, I still don’t think I’d buy one. I miss the W212 E63 AMG. It never showed its girth when going sideways in the manner the W213 does, sounded equally brutal, and most of all, looked really sharp. The new E63 S looks like the new C63 S with pixie dust sprinkled on it - and the very thought annoys me. Owning the old W212 E63 made a lot more sense because nothing looked like it. It boasted of a design that would have me save its picture in a folder; the new car doesn’t make me want to do that. It’s too bulbous, looks like something else, and wouldn’t even look half as sinister if it isn’t for that grey matte finish. And at the risk of being reported as spam, the idea of a pre-owned 981 Cayman S with no more than 12,000km on the clock, for a lot less money, and lots more money to spare for trackdays, doesn’t sound like a bad idea. It’s low, lithe, sporty and practical - what’s not to like?
