I've wanted this car forever:



It's actually very easily attainable now, I just don't have any place to put it. So maybe not so attainable after all!!

Oh, and I want this (in black):


I'm a sucker for Ferraris

Nice!

Not so much the driveway. Just the Mazda mini van and old school explorer in the background make your car stand out like a sore thumb. LOL

Best wishes on the new digs. Congrats.

Can't pick just one. GT3RS 4.0; Zonda (any); LP-570; McLaren MP4-12; 458. Not in that order necessarily.

Ok, since y'all (TX, right) are so interested ... the house does have a 3-car garage. And it just sold for about the value of the SV.

Proof of contents. Or at least the need for the garage



and two M's. Gotta have something to drive when it rains.

Come to think of it ... that just proves your point: The rides are worth more than the walls.
I give up.

Cars. Can't live without 'em. Can't live with 'em.




Sorry that I can't provide any help.
I made the mistake of taking mine with me on a visit to Munich and then to the M facilities in Garching.
After speaking - on her own - with our guide at M, she got them to agree to build a Frozen Black E92 M3 for her. (I can't blame them; I would have given in to her, too.)

Part of me thinks waycool.
Part of me thinks $$$$

The next dream car that I'm hoping to get soon: 08 E92 M3, Melbourne Red, 6MT.

Realistic dream car one day: 997.2 Turbo with PDK

If something drastic changes, then maybe an Aston or Ferrari one day. Never really day dreamed about owning an exotic car to be completely honest, I'm somewhat of a realist.

Exactly Hopefully Porsche won't stop producing the GTS in the next few years.
