I havent seen a post like this here but I was curious. What else do you guys drive when not in your Q50/Q60. I drive my Q50 on my days off, have a 2008 Acura tsx for my long work commute to downtown L.A. (currently at 250k and no major problems!) Also just bought a 2017 Honda pilot awd for the family car.

G37 Coupe is my DD, although my other garage space currently has my roommates 07 GTI... Which I'm still trying to convince him is something he should get tuned.
Prior to that it was a 72 Trans-Am that another friend had as a project car.

Q50 is the wife's car. It's the first brand new car we've ever bought, and the first car she's paid for all by herself.

I drive a loaded '15 Z71 Silverado 3500 D-max every day (literally, it's my job to drive it all day). It's a crew cab short bed with a gooseneck hitch, Fisher XLS and a wireless DownEaster, currently has 120K on the clock and it works it's balls off.

The Chevy replaced my baby, because it got too old for our bonding company to let me keep using it for work. It's a '98 Ram 2500 12V that is completely stupid. Balanced motor, bored, custom pistons, custom cam, built head, benched pump, compound turbos, built trans, 583K on it and runs like a raped ape... I should probably try to sell it and take my loss.

I also have an '05 Ninja ZX10R, and she has a '12 CBR1000RR. Oh! And a 52" Hustler Raptor zero-turn mower, which is faster than you might expect...

I tried to get the wife interested in a Nissan Leaf. It would fit her mission perfectly but she said there is no way she would give up her '12 SLK 350 Merc. I can't blame her. I like to take it for a spin occasionally in the summer.

Aye me as well especially if they release that Nismo edition with the larger battery, gas is $6.57 gallon for 91 at the moment so really considering turning the
G37 into a weekend Toy.

The Q50S is my DD.
I'm coming from a Scion TC, which I still have, but will be gone shortly.
I miss the manual transmission, the mileage and the smaller/lighter toss-ability but otherwise, I was long overdue for a "grown up" car.

Wife's ride is a '17 RAV4 SE AWD. The SE is the "sport" trim level. It has 18's, paddle shifters and more locked down suspension. I actually find it fun to drive.

The "backup car" is my daughter's '09 Civic that normally sits covered in the driveway while she lives in the big city.

3 season fun and occasional commuting: '15 Kawasaki Versys 1000 and '03 Aprilia Futura RST1000.

If you open up the list to "project cars you've once driven but haven't moved in a while...":
'87 Porsche 944S
'92 GMC Jimmy, 2dr/2WD getting the pro-touring treatment

Holy crap! I bought my Ninja for commuting back when putting 91 in my old Fox Mustang hit $5/gal a little over a decade ago, it's back down around $3 right now. I knew it was rough in Cali, but sheesh!

From Alberta, Canada actually but yeah Cali is pretty compare price wise to most of Canada, pretty much end up paying what amounts to $50-$60 a week in gas commute is
about 30 Miles/day. Hence the allure of an EV, my garage is also already wired up for a 240V outlet I made sure of that when I had it built. Good re-sale feature and its
handy if you own a compressor and other larger tools.

My DD is the Q50. I bought my wife a 2014 Santa Fe Limited Ultimate as our family car (3 kids, all girls, someone pray for me). I have a 95 Chevy K1500 as my obligatory pickup for dump runs or pulling trailered toys.

No surprise. I have owned four Hondas. Three Accords and one Civic. They made up four of the top five most trouble free vehicles I have ever owned.
