Not heard anything. Was at the dealer this weekend (they are buying my RS6 off me) and told them I’ll be interested again if a performance model comes out, but they said nothing yet and actually unsure if one will come especially with the current focus on EVs
Current:
911 Turbo S on order - due May 2021 (hopefully!)
2019 Aston Martin Vantage - Hyper Red

Previous:
2020 RS6 Vorsprung - Sebring Black
2018 RRS SVR - Firenze Red, Carbon Bonnet and all the toys
2016 Aston Martin Vantage - Magnetic Silver (alongside the SVR as the weekend toy)
2017 RS6 Performance - Ascari Blue
2014 RS4 - Prism Silver
2013 S4 Avant - Estoril Blue
2012 RS3 - Phantom Black
Lots of others.....

What's next, why the change so soon?

Couple of reasons, firstly, I have a 911 Turbo S shaped itch I need to scratch, and having waited patiently for a year that day is nearly here!

Secondly, I have realized that 99% of the time, its just me in the car, so do I need something quite so big. My wife has a big family wagon, so I'm going to try to do the sports car for everyday use thing (although I have convinced her the 911's back seats are fine for short journeys!) :bigblink:

Have loved the RS6 and would probably get back in one in the future, in particular if a performance version comes out, but for now I'm counting the days down to realize that childhood car dream!

Good luck, it's always nice to achieve the dreams. I am sure you won't be disappointed with your car choice!

If you’re acquiring a 992 TTS you’ve done well, they have been hard to acquire. You’ll love it. Does everything an RS6 but 100 times greater. I loved my 991.2 TTS. Assume you’re clear of build pain caused by the semi conductor shortage?

Yup 992. I believe if you wanted to order one today your talking 15+ months wait. Build complete day is today so should be just the wait as it does its journey from Germany over to the UK.

Will miss the RS6, but interested to see how the TTS is, as I've not driven one yet as when I ordered there weren't any in the UK to drive!

Ah, that’s quite a big punt, though you’ll not be disappointed.

15 months not long at all, why you bought it if you wanted something else? I still use my c7 rs6 from 2016 and happy, and plan to use it at least 5 more years

Think he’s explained clearly why he’s sold it on Tadass.
Glad you’re enjoying your RS6 so much.
I love my RS4 but am considering moving it on as I don’t use it much.
I use my JCW mini more day to day than the RS so I totally get where Tadass is coming from.
