Oddly more drawn to the taycan cross turismo (basically same car underneath) although the boot is way smaller than the RS6.

Not sure if they are available to drive yet. I think the release date is early May. That's what the local dealer told me anyway. They had a GT in the showroom last week, it only arrived the week before and it hadn't had its PDI as it was still in transport mode.

You’d best make the most of non EV’s then!
Whether we like it or not eventually we will all be forced to go EV. They will raise taxes/fuel etc and hit you so hard in the pocket you will have little choice.
I suspect the figures of 2030/2035 are very optimistic (for going full EV)and the reality will be longer but they will just hit you in the pocket more and more until it’s financially not worth it.
Make some noise while you can!

Just put a Milltek badge on the car somewhere, that always makes you happy!!

for me EV are not the future they have a finite amount of lithium
were as hydrogen is almost infinite in supply why the motor company's have hurtled done the EV route is puzzling to me
Toyota are the ones to watch they have designed a hydrogen combustion engine

Interestingly, In1806, A Swiss engineer named François Isaac de Rivaz invented an internal combustion engine that used a mixture of hydrogen and oxygen as fuel
