    A few pictures from a recent quick trip to Big Bend National Park.

    First a couple of pics of the paved roads (the main reason I went out there) and a roadside stop :

    Thank you, Jeff! :cheers:

    On-road, it was awesome! In comfort the ride is more comfortable than I ever thought a vehicle with the Porsche badge could be. In Sport or Sport Plus, the suspension firms up and handles curves with ease without beating you up.

    Off paved surfaces, in "off-road" mode? It's not as happy, but I think it'd be alright for forest service roads and the like, as long as the roads weren't too rutted.

    It also has plenty of room behind the back seats for me to haul camera gear, etc. without anything being outwardly visible to prying eyes. :thumbs:
