That car is beyond the M on so many levels. Who cross-shops these cars when one is 2x the price?

I know the feeling of wanting a PCAR. Have had that fire in me for a long time. I just pulled the trigger on a 2013 C2S, still at the dealership waiting to be shipped. I was planning to get rid of the M3 initially but decided to keep it!

Know I have best of both the M3 and a 911.
There's no way in hell it's going to start at $125k. That's awfully close to a 991 GT3 price wise. I'm going to guess that it's close to $100k. But even at that, it's still more than pretty much every car it's going to "complete" against.

Who said anything about cross shop? I'm talking about an upgrade.

Haha so true! I saw that post about some 6'7" guy buying a new C7 and immediately I was like ' awesome! '. Wife and I went up to the dealer to drive and possibly buy one. Yeah I couldn't get my foot off the clutch with the door closed. lol

I am 5'5" and when driving my wife's minivan, I like to scoot the seat all the way forward just to see people do a double-take as I lumber by in it.

My sources are also saying in the $120K range. This is the car I have been hoping Porsche would make for years. I've said that if they make it, I'll hand them a blank check....and sell my GT3.

In my dreams: 400hp 9A1 based motor; manual trans, 5 lug wheels, serious suspension development, wider wheels; aero. If they make it, I will be first in line.
