Z06 and 992 GT3

As you said we're in a strange phase. I want to have some swan song experiences in NA engines while I can. Electric will continue to improve with performance, design, and charging infrastructure... so I don't see the need to be an early adopter of electric.

I'm kind of excited to see this new Volvo V70R even if they want CPO Porsche money for it

992 GT3 even though my 992 S isn't really hitting the spot.

I dunno I find most new cars boring. Falling in love with my e92 all over again.

Lately none of the cars has impressed me, I am looking for a new SUV but I think will wait for another year or so..
I am also planning to buy a BMW Motorcycle: BMW 310GS. It looks really promising, and is a BMW, so cannot undermine its abilities.

This question has been bothering me for months now. My F80 is exactly 6 years old now and I've never owned a car that long. One reason is because I've been really happy with this car, but the other one is the fact that there isn't really a car that excites me enough.

The situation is that I have never owned a car for so long, my financial situation has never been so good and at the same time I have never been so willing to buy a new car. But unfortunately, right now of all times, there is just hardly any car that appeals to me enough, which is pretty frustrating. The ranking list currently looks like this: 1st choice 992 4S, 2nd choice G80, otherwise there is basically no alternative I'm interested in.

Your situation is a good one. Keep what you have and save up for the next car that you would want to get. Something is coming out that you will like.

Bronco, but might have to wait for the Warthog for all the goodies. This one would suffice in the meantime:

In person, it definitely has presence. Think G-Wagon & Wrangler had a love child.

Is there any new car that has you excited?

Honestly feel like the car scene has kind of been dead. But the few I'm looking forward to is
The new M2 and (although some may call it blasphemy) the new C63. Interested in how this car is going to compete.

The new M2 is about it, but I'm sure it will disappoint considering BMWs current direction.

I saw the four-door variants in person a few months back, they are definitely awesome, the Warthog (or possibly Raptor based on current name rumors) is gonna be awesome, they will be selling every one they make and probably at markup too.

There's nothing wrong with it, I like my car. It's just a little too "soft" for my taste.
