We had a meal out with friends last night (before going to see Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, which was very good). Mrs PG is close friends with the lady. We see her husband about twice a year. Anyway, these friends are retired and well off and swap cars quite a lot. He always has a Defender for farm and dog duties (currently a run out 2016 model which he says he'll keep for ever) and he also has a 911 (that I've never seen as he never takes it out anywhere) and she has an Evoque.

As he never drives the 911, he'd been to look at the Porsche Macan. He was so impressed that he's ordered a GTS and will trade the 911. And she liked it too, so she's ordered a Macan Diesel S. Both are due for March delivery. His and Hers. At least they are different colours and specs.

Anybody else know of a couple who both have the same car?

It's a touch unimaginative, isn't it?

My first reaction. But if you both really like a car then it does kind of make sense!

My younger daughter has a blue 5-door Ford Fiesta, and so do I

For a few years after my late father retired, he and my mum had non-matching Volvo estates, an orange 145 and a burgundy 850

That's about as close as I can get

We both had A2's for about 15 months, although they felt completely different one being an SE spec 1.4TDI the other having been a Sport spec 1.6FSi with loads of extras.

Perhaps it is the only way to get ahead on the waiting list - order two?

I can't help thinking that it is bound to lead to disappointment. Everytime you step from the GTS to the diesel, aren't you going to be disappointed?

There's a chap and his missus that go to my gym, they change their cars often but sometimes end up with the same manufacturer, most recently they had a Panamera and a Cayenne as a 'pair' although they Cayenne has been replaced by an XF Estate. The Panamera sounds fantastic (I think it's a n/a V8)

There's a house I walk past with the dogs that has an XC70 the same as mine and a V60 in white. Can't help think life is too short.

I know a couple who have two Fiestas. There's also a house I used to walk past that had two Fabia estates outside. I did spot another place with two white Jukes on the drive once, but don't recall a second sighting, so it may have been just a visitor with no imagination...

We have had 2 Fiesta ST's at the same time and 2 Focus ST TDCi as well. And 2 Kuga come to think of it.

Our neighbours had 2 Skoda Fabia which seems worse somehow.

If, for some reason I can't think of, you're never going to be able to drive each other's cars then it makes sense, but otherwise, it's a real missed opportunity.

A couple up the road from us have a Golf and a Golf Estate and slightly further round the corner they have 2 Mazda 3's, a new 66 plate one and one of the previous model.

A customer of mine; he has a Dacia Duster, his wife has a Dacia Stepway

A customer of my colleague; has a Dacia Logan, his wife has a Dacia Sandero.

We have other families with multiple Dacia's spread throughout the family; parents, children etc and the same for Renault, for example we have a few where both the mother and daughter have Clio's.

My parents have friends who have a early top spec Evoque and when it was time to change hers decided against another MINI Countryman (I think she had 3) went with a new low spec Evoque.

I used to work with a lady who ran two Polos. Seemed weird that she didn't just stick to one and the husband the other. Imagine having to faff about with the seat and mirrors just to drive a burgundy one instead of a blue one.

Two of the same is way cool....observe




V8 on the left, V6D on the right with 10 extra points for synchronised parking.

A brace of XFRs or XJRs would look mega.

A guy at work has just got a brand new Evoque SD4 something or other and his wife likes it so much she twisted his arm to get her a (used) one. His is grey, hers is white.

When I worked at the garage a couple traded in a couple of BMW 118ds against a pair of brand new Mitsi L200s.
At least they were in different colours.

Don't you lose parking points for not straightening the wheels?

Don't know anyone like this but you've reminded me that I spotted and snapped this pair of his 'n hers green XKRs travelling in convoy in Battersea earlier this year.

They at least had different wheel designs...

Your jokes are far too clean  

Regarding the thread itself - I'm in the camp of it being a missed opportunity/a lack of imagination.

There's a house on the way to my granddaughter's school with two Dacia Estates in the drive - one bronze and one white.

I considered a Mini Cooper S Works which had I bought it would have sat on the drive next to our Mini Cooper - one of the reasons I decided against it was there would then have been little point in then having the Cooper apart from being there for the rare occasions we're both out in separate cars - better to have two completely different driving experiences.

I don't think two of the same make is an issue. I would bet a lot of the time they have just found one of those rare dealerships that look after their customers.
