What did Porsche contribute? Certainly nothing in the drive train and I really don't see anything in the interior that hasn't already been done by others. The exterior design, attributed to Porsche, is nice but it is still a brick and not very aerodynamic. I don't think Prevost has anything to worry about.

Well that's one contract that's a waste of money. Nothing special in that coach design.

Porsche Design is not the car folks, it's a majority owned subsidiary of Porsche AG, the car folks.

hmmm... I wonder what kind of payments they could work out for me? Nothing down and zero interest maybe?

I knew once Porsche introduced a 4-dr and SUV, it was a slippery slope from there [emoticon]

Beautiful coach.

Yeppers, beautiful coach, but, no thanks.
To begin with, of course, way to expensive and fancy for my jack-pine-savage tastes.
Second, that thing would not fit in any USFS campgrounds I would be likely to want to visit. In fact, I would never want to take it off the freeways! Come to think of it, I'm not sure many of the commercial campgrounds I visit could handle that length.
Third, as the old song goes "Give me 40 acres, and I'll turn this rig around..." I'm quite happy with my 32 footer. I do not need 45 feet/4 slides.
I'm sure they will sell a dozen or so, but I won't be one of the buyers.

Hmmm. Tom Brady retires and buys one--who else can afford?
