How do you get so many loaners?

I haven't had a sniff of one from Hatfield for 2 years now.
Seems to vary between OPCs, even in the same group (Dick Lovett). The last three loaners from Swindon have been a Toyota and a couple of BMWs. So far, including yesterday, I’ve always had a Porsche courtesy car from Tewkesbury.

I just try and book well ahead. At short notice, I guess that any OPC may struggle to produce a loaner. Some OPCs may have reduced their courtesy car fleet to re-stock their used cars for sale. 🤔

P.S. The hybrid may be heavier, due to carrying the battery, as well as an engine. It certainly felt like a lot of weight, when I came to a stop. 🛑
When I was vaguely thinking about a Panny before the 911, my accountant head said to get the hybrid and my office is 5 miles from home and the other main one in the west end - it seemed to make sense

The sales exec put me off saying I would notice the extra weight and it spoilt the car.
Yep. Head versus heart. Hybrid better financially due to tax breaks. ICE probably better from a driving enjoyment point of view.

Am guessing a hybrid Cayenne may be heavier than a Taycan or similar sized Tesla, as the hybrid carries the weight of a battery/batteries AND a conventional engine/gearbox etc.

I like the previous generation of Cayennes, they don't look as big and have a very nice rear. I think it's E2 generation from around 2015/2016.
Always catches my eye when I see one.

I know what you mean and I agree. A bit more compact than say an X5.

That's the one! I think that's the best version with regards to shape and style.
I am not a fan of the current fashion of strip rear lights. All those cars look the same in the dark.
