I think they're supposed to be bought as lavish trojan horses for your worst enemy so you can burn their house down from the inside out. Right? [Waits for letter from Fisker legal team]Ya, but the Fisker will probably break down after 10 miles, or did they fix that yet?
It is a freaking beautiful car. I saw quite a few in Amsterdam.
Agreed on the ST. No way. No how. Either he's just got a short memory, or he missed the point of the "exercise". Or I'm in for a HELL of a surprise.The guy said the ST to drive up page views and get the internet to pay attention. There's no way anyone would pick the ST when given $100k to spend on a car. The vast majority of people would either pick a GT-R or something German.
Based on your other comments about supercars, I'd say it is incredibly unlikely based on the racecars I've met. What's wrong with Porsches? M3 is a great choice. As is a GT-R. If we're talking street cars, the Audi R8 is a great grand tourer, too. Not a great performance car in earnest, but good looking, comfy, quiet, and easy to drive.If it wasn't for the mad science aspect of the Fisker, GTR would be my pick too.
I'd never pick a supercar. They're cool to look at, but horrible to drive around the city in. And Porsches are so...Porsche. An M3 would be fun. But a GTR is just over the top and still a great car to drive around in. People who know, would respect it.
Is there a good rally car that's still streetable that you can get for $100K+?
Yup. CTS-V is a very nice car. Also very heavy, but very well done indeed.I feel like you can't go wrong with an M3. Should be well-behaved on the streets and doesn't draw too much attention without the supercar looks.
I would have to consider the Cadillac CTS-V line... that car packs a punch!
What ZL1 would that be?I think the Tesla Model S is one of the best and most interesting choices.
But extremely hard to the Tesla choose when you're up against my other favorites:
Nissan GTR, Corvette ZL1, CTS-V Wagon
I want to say Porsche 911 in there, but I think I would prefer an older 911 or the newest Boxter.
I'm also surprised I didn't see a prominent showing of the BMW M3 or 1M.
Magazines rave about the 911 and BMW M3/1M every time they drive them. But I agree, they don't have the complete mindbending performance aspects of the GTR or ZL1.
You're probably right on this one. But the GT3 didn't really cross my mind because it's above $100k.What ZL1 would that be?
I'd take a GT3 RS over a GT-R any minute of any day.
Fair enough. The GT-R is AMAZING off the line. I agree. Not in those minutes (or seconds!!).You're probably right on this one. But the GT3 didn't really cross my mind because it's above $100k.
Consider that the GTR's straight line performance can be a lot of fun as well. Less important, but it is a consideration. So I wouldn't agree with any minute of any day.
