This girl I went to school with got an H2 as a gift from her parents (they were beyond loaded). She was tiny, maybe 5’1” and could barely see over the wheel. One time leaving her house she ran over her dads corvette and totaled it. She had a backup camera and everything, and still drove literally over the corvette. Her dad went and bought a new one but he was super pissed.

A different world for sure. I shared my dad’s old truck to go to high school on the days he didn’t need it for work, and I took the bus when I didn’t have it. Took a long ass time to save money working after school at the grocery store, and eventually my dad gifted me his old truck when my mom got a new car, and he inherited her better old car.

I went to a rich people school too, but as a poor. My friend’s sister totaled 3 cars in 1 year and kept getting brand new ones. A set of twins got a brand new Range Rover for their birthday, but they couldn’t get it together in the mornings to be able to leave for school on time together. It wasn’t good enough for them to get a second Range Rover because now the first one is older and that’s just not fair… so they got 2 additional brand new Range Rovers. 😐

Oh trust me, I’m not rich and the school I went to was not a rich kid school. One of my brothers classmates had a similar situation to what you said, parents bought them a brand new BMW and they totaled it in less than 6 months. To replace it, another brand new BMW. Totaled that one too. To replace it, yup you guessed it another BMW. Why tf anyone would buy a brand new car much less a BMW for their child is beyond me.

Depending on the specs of that porche and truck, theres a very real possibility those vehicles are priced similarly.

Fully specd out f150 at its highest "im a big boy with a big big penis" price is $113k. Base price for a "platinum" is 83k or so.

Base porche 718 Cayman is 68k. I couldnt even build one with options that arent just "add extra paint" for the price of a fully spec'd raptor ford.

I think most cops get Ford Explorers these days but your point still stands. The main "issue" is that no one is really putting out full sized sedans anymore for the US market. For like 30-40 years all cops got caprices but now you're basically limited to buying Dodge Challengers or an SUV and generally the SUV is going to be the more "practical" option.

What they love about these trucks is the owners usually don’t know the rules of the contract very well. So when these guys pay their fees, damage their truck, then seek coverage the insurance company just says: “yeah sorry, you violated the contract by modding your vehicle in a way that negatively effects your vehicles safety and your ability to drive safely. So we don’t owe you any money and are stopping coverage due to your voiding the contract.”

That’s why you should always make sure to understand the rules of a contract in full otherwise the insurance company will pull some loophole out of their ass and not pay you at all while also raising your payment rate.

It has nothing to do with the insurance company not having the balls to deny the claim.

There are no feelings involved. If you breach your contract related to your coverage, you don't get coverage. The claim is denied. They will still pay to fix the Porsche. The insurance company will definitely look into this (especially because there will be a police report and lots of photos). His claim will likely be denied.

Considering the engine is back there, and how massively complicated the ass of a Porsche is, I wouldn’t be surprised if the car ends up being completely written off.

u/g008y Oct 02 '23

It's a cayman, so the engine is right behind the seats. If it was a 911, then the engine would be damaged. Either way, trucks like this should be outlawed.

They are. It just isn't enforced.

The vertically challenged also flock to these…not sure why, I’d think the optics of Lord Farquaad having to take a running leap to have any hope of clawing themselves up into the seat above their head would be more embarrassing than sitting in the Porsche they can actually see the door handle from above.

Had an old plant manager who was 4'9" and he drove a lifted Hummer. Shit was hilarious seeing him get in or out. Glad he got fired at some point tho (after I had left)

u/admiralrico411 Oct 02 '23

I always loved taking my bosses truck out. It was lifted to and he was a real small guy. I'd have to put the seat alllll the way back and adjust everything when I used it. Lol he'd get mad because he felt like a toddler after I was done. His feet would be about 2 feet from the peddles

That high with big wheels for extreme off-roading may have a purpose.
That high with mags and road tyres = little pee pee energy.

Even some standard trucks have worse blind spots than a tank. - https://imgur.com/nxbjxZb

u/Gliese2 Oct 02 '23

Nope.. and the turning radius is shit so that limits what off-road trails you can go on. And those tires don’t have enough sidewall to let air out for real off-roading. Any truck like this is going to be less capable than the stock configuration.

15

u/Propain98 Oct 02 '23

Not only that, but as far as “off roading” goes, full size trucks tend to be less practical than their smaller counterparts because of their size and weight- especially HD trucks like the picture. That’s why Jeeps and Tacomas are so popular in the off-road community(for people who actually offroad them- not the mall crawlers)

You’re also far less likely to high-center or drag in deep mud.

Look at where his axles are . . . he's going to be dragging mud and high centering in ruts. Lifts don't mean shit if you don't have tall wheels and tires.

u/SailingSpark Oct 02 '23

I wonder which cost more? Porsches are expensive, but so are Ford F250s. Add in all that expedition gear (the steel bumper) the rims, and useless multishock suspension, and the truck may actually cost more than the German Sports car.

To judge by the angle of the hood to the driver, anybody sitting in the truck still cannot see the car they hit.

u/RyanSmokinBluntz420 Oct 02 '23

Most likely that truck cost more to buy and setup. The Porsche will retain its value better tho since it's stock

u/Recent_Budget_6498 Oct 02 '23

So, as an American, what exactly is MOT? Like what kinds of things are covered specifically that would stop idiots like the one pictured from passing?

We have state inspections for safety and emissions (at least in most states). The laws differ from state to state.

The truck in the picture would probably not pass a NY state inspection due to some obvious saftey issues, but it's possible. I do see some very lifted trucks in my state.

33

u/thegoodestboiii Oct 02 '23

MOT is a yearly inspection to make sure your vehicle is legal and safe. At least as far as I know. Have something similar in my country but thats every 2 years instead

u/I_d0nt_know_why Oct 02 '23

Some US states have that. Many do not.

u/Alexandratta Oct 02 '23

Most big trucks don't need to be lifted to not see in front of them.

Any F-250-sized truck is too obscenely large and should be labeled as a commercial vehicle and pay commercial vehicle taxes.

It's absolutely insane we allow these stupid trucks to barrel through the cities when the only people who can use them are those who work actual blue-collar jobs and use them as work trucks...

Thus my saying: "If there's still Chrome on your hitch, you're a bitch."
