Looking at the numbers, convertibles anyways, jesus H she's heavy. SOme 900+ pounds heavier than a 911. If that sounds unfair, it is still some 460 pounds heavier than a new Mustang GT.
Oh yeah. Thing weighs roughly 2 ton, 4,000 pounds

the gran turismo, on paper, seems very similar to the lc500.

I watched Demuro's review and he uses up 70% of his time going over the shitty interior. He's like, no lane departure, no auto cruise, no auto braking, no auto this, no safety that, no nanny here, no nanny there......i'm like....AND? Sounds great. I hate all that garbage.

You can crap on about the Mustang's interior all you want but bang for buck, looking at the weight of the cars on the table (maserati, jag, E92 M3 etc) and the GT is a compelling argument, bang for buck, in PP2 form.

Agreed - but it's still a Mustang, and I just never really liked them.

Yeah - I watched that Doug video and thought the same thing as well - I mean, it has a cig lighter, so I can easily connect my phone via bluetooth that way - problem solved, lol.

Going from my wife's Stelvio to my 13 year old Saab is a relief. The lack of distraction is fantastic, modern cars DON'T SHUT THE FUCK UP.

I know itís already been discussed but have you driven an F13 M6 at all?

I drove some of the same cars you are discussing when I was looking for mine and decided it was the best.

The gearbox, engine and interior are quite some distance ahead of the Maserati imho

Those are very quick cars - but just not special enough to me. Even though it's super fast - it's still just looks like a normal everyday car in a parking lot.

One of my 'must haves' is that if I were to see one drive by, it needs to make my head snap and go 'nice!'. No BMW other than the i8 does that for me.

Even with shipping it across the border it might be cheaper than buying it in the US. One thing that I've noticed is that cars right now, are a lot cheaper in Canada than the US.

If you allow for the exchange the sometimes yes. Despite the exchange and also a 6pc import fee, it is ALMOST worth importing some cars from the usa to canada. Depends on the car.

Soooo, do you have a favorite one yet?

I smell a second i8 - a Roadster

I also think about, to buy a scond one (Roadster), but on the other hand, I have my eyes on a E30 M3 Convertible. Yeah, they are about the same price 🤪 But because of lack of parking space, I would have to sell my beauty E30 325i Convertible 😩

The one attached. 👇👇👇👇

Very nice, sir!

Our current i8 is a roadster, so.... lol (pic below)

Seriously though - it's probably going to be the Granturismo - but I will likely hold off until after the first of the year since I am getting too busy to devote much attention to this.

If the right one comes along now though, I will certainly jump on it.

Well spec'd and gorgeous.
If I was looking for one I would definitely be bidding on it. Just under 90 minutes to go and it's only at 30k. I don't think it's going to meet the reserve.
