I haven't heard or read much about it recently, although supposedly it was announced it would come to market by the end of this year (not sure if this will be pushed back due to the virus).

Here are some quick facts if you're interested:

Agree with both, can't forget about the Carrera GT though.

Apr 7, 2020

+1 for Porsche, though personally I reckon I'd just go for the "standard" GT3 on the basis of more understated looks than the RS and an engine noise that's leagues above the GT2.

This is my Dream car as well. I don't think there's anything better all around, especially for the price. The Turbo S is a great competitor if you want something softer and just as fast.

Some people may quote track times of the GT3RS being faster but I would bet quite a lot of money that for 99% of this forum, the limiting factor is their driving ability.. not the difference between a Turbo S and GT3RS

GT2 RS is always special too. And the 993 GT2, aka the "Widow Maker". I'm a big Porsche fan. My dad had a 912 while I was growing up. Sold it, bought a 1984 SC. Then he wanted a car both him and my mom could enjoy on long drives to San Diego so he got a Panamera 4S. The Supercarrera was cool and fun, but no ABS/ no traction control/ no power steering/ and suspension purely focused on performance makes driving it get old as you get older

Pagani Huayra coupe with the gullwings doors is definitely one of my favorites since Horacio Pagani was working at Lamborghini and left. I was surprised that it wasn't included in the roadster. Zonda Cinque Roadster or Lamborghini Veneno is my favorite. I highly doubt any of those cars will ever be for sale ever in life. Zondas are illegal in the U.S.A.

"It's okay, I'll see you on the other side"

Apr 7, 2020

It'd be pretty difficult to put gullwing doors on a convertible by design, since the roof has to fold away. Would be pretty cool to see a Huayra with no doors bombing around like an off-road Jeep.

Top pick would be a Lexus LFA. Those things sound angelic. Something more practical for daily use would be an M3 or M2 manual. Maybe an RS 6 Avant - always been a sucker for wagons.

And just to toss it out there an Aprilia RSV4 for my 2 wheeled itch :)

+1 For the RS6 Avant, such a beaut

Good taste

Apr 6, 2020

You're romanticizing about the material objects commonly associated with the banker lifestyle. I'm deep in the E, applying validation to cells with triple nested conditional and indirect functions then writing my own macros on-the-fly before sending up to my father for comments. **There is a difference. ** Cute of you to adopt the lusory attitude, but it lands you no closer to the prolusory goal. IMO, the best part about being at a capital-T Target isn't the network, or shortcut to superdays...but the peer pressure that drives constant competition because if you're not getting better than you're getting worse. Oh & to answer the initial question, I drove an X5 in prep school and had some fond memories. It sufficed.

The 458 is absolutely stunning. It sucks that you cant just buy it outright, but have to have purchased prior models now. Seems to be Ferrari's new policy, although this is all secondhand knowledge (as a first year analyst I have never seriously considered buying anything from Ferrari).

I have always loved the RS6. Shit on wagons all you want, that car is so fucking practical, drives perfectly, and still rips. Plus it is so low key that many will write it off as a relatively regular car. That twin-turbo charged V8 though.... Makes me drool.

Although not a huge BMW guy, I have always dreamed of owning a E46 M3. This is a pretty generic response, as it is one of the more popular models. Still deserving of the recognition in my opinion.

Ideally, I would have 2-3 cars, while all under 100k a piece, that is truly my dream. I don't see the need for 100k+ vehicles. I am not a racer, I will rarely exceed 100 mph, unless I'm on a track. However a practical car with some nice pick up and a sexy sounding engine would be awesome.

Not to stray to far from OPs, question, but it would be fun to see a thread of the most overrated cars.

I have some favorites:

M2, M3, M4, M5

Lotus Evora 400

Lamborghinis

Ford GT

Bugatti Chiron

Old NSX and new NSX

1963 Ferrari 250 GT Lusso

1965 Shelby Cobra

Ferrari Enzo

LaFerrari

Jeep Tomahawk (I like the sleeper concept)

I'm probably forgetting some.

I drove the Lotus Elise years ago and had a lot of fun driving that car. It is like a street legal go cart. The interior is bare, but the skidpad is an amazing 1.03g so handling is superior. This car doesn't have a lot of go compared to others, but the new Lotus Evora is a lot quicker. Not super quick, but better.

I like the handling aspect as it is so much fun and you can just kill it on corners driving around or going to an overpass or exit. I feel like the drag strip specialist cars like the GTR are great, but you just can't exploit that power and go of the car without immediately being in 'you're going to jail' ticket ranges from the cops.

Of course, with a supercar you have everything. It would be nice having a 10 car garage and just being able to choose. I feel like at some point between having 1 car and 10, you have to make the decision to not donate to charity and be selfish for whatever reason. Or at least thats the rationale that comes up in my mind. Is this purchase really benefiting the world? Maybe you believe in the high end artisan that makes the Ferrari leather and feel it is supporting him. When spending so much money on cars, I think there has to be a thought process there. I probably couldn't ever go to the race track as I've heard its just a massive money pit. Is it worth it? Maybe. It all sure looks super cool. I've been into cars my whole life. They are incredible machines - we live in incredible times.

In terms of biggest automotive flexes, I'd say managing to get street legal conversion of the old GT1 cars from the 00s (Murci SV GT1, MC12 corsa GT1, 550 GTC, 911 GT1 etc...) has to be up there, both because of the physical presence and legal difficulty.

Also something like a Porsche 917 for the same reasons

Apr 8, 2020

I'm amazed that we've seen two McLaren P1 comments, but since we're all daydreaming about price is no object cars, nobody's mentioned the big daddy.

If I could have any car I'd take a McLaren F1. Weighs less than a Miata, 3 seats, decent cargo space, and oh, did I mention the 600HP V12? I love that everything is manual, it doesn't even have ABS. Also, for a 30 year old car it still looks modern. Car guys get what it is, but for others it's just a 'nice looking sportscar.'

From a more attainable (not $12M car) standpoint, I'd take a Cadillac CTS-V wagon with the manual in black. There is something awesome about having a C5 Corvette station wagon that nobody's expecting. I'd also like a Caterham.

Current car: ND Miata in candy apple red.

Oh,I don't want it, because having a F1 team follow you around all the time is a pain, but everybody should check out the Renault Espace F1. It is bonkers, and I love it. Frankensteining a F1 car to a minivan must have been something they came up with at a bar one night.

Always wanted a rolls royce, but I love the 458 Ferrari and Lambo Gallardo.

I think if I had to choose a few cars, I would probably do a:

Daily Drive: Mercedes GLE43, G55 or Porsche Cayenne S
Sports Car/ Friday/Saturday Car: Porsche 911 (4/4S/Turbo) or Ferrari F8
Classic: Either an 60-70s Mustang, or maybe an 50s-2010s Mercedes or Rolls.

Current car is a MB GLC
