    If anyone is looking, I know of one for sale - Silver / Black. Looking for $500K.
    Seems reasonable, but are people paying $50K over for a Porsche?

    It will be interesting to see where the EBay car sells for.

    MSRP was $450 and change. Out the door was about $470.

    The car is REALLY nice - although the looks are a bit "tame" for a car in THAT price range - and the performance is breathtaking. In my experience the closest comparison it to would be a 333 - except the Porsche had a roof, was more comfortable, had a stereo and had A/C.

    The fellow that has it is really a Ferrari guy. He would rather see the money go to a nice F-40. If he can flip the car and make a buck, he will let it go. Otherwise, he will just keep it and put of the F-40 for a few months.

    Martin - if you would like to see the car in person, just let me know. I can arrange a "viewing."

    MSRP is bogus... Wasn't the Enzo's MSRP $670,000? They go for about 1.2 million now.

    Nice car, but what exactly do they mean by "612 BHP - ENZO BEATER"

    Every "Supercar" that comes out lately is an "Enzo Killer", "Enzo Beater" or "Enzo Eater" which should, in itself indicate what "Supercar" is the current king.

    If these companies (and there are too many to list here) want to prove what an "Enzo Beater" they really have, put them on the race track side by side and prove it in front of 150,000 fans and millions of television viewers around the world.

    Having seen denziens of Enzos (ridden in one) and seeing one Carrera GT, the first thing noticable between the two is how small the GT is. Obviously, Porsche is obsessed with weight having riden in my friends new GT3 last week, the doors cant weigh more than 3lbs and seem flimsy.

    Porsche are missing marketing opportunities with the GT left and right. There should have been one on display at Sebring this year and if there was one at the Rennsport Daytona Reunion at Daytona, I sure never saw a picture of it. But, considering the company, none of these things should come as a surprise; bunch of arrogant fops.

    Porsche's on-again, off-again dance with actually racing the Carrera GT wont happen unless they know (that) they have certain built-in advantages in the rules so as long as Aston Martin, Ferrari, Corvette and (now) Maserati are in the mix, dont expect to see Porsche return to compete any time soon.

    My mistake, there was one (1, uno) Carrera GT at the Daytona Rennsport Reunion in a field of (what was reported to be) upwards of 500 cars.

    Granted but you cant buy and R8 for the street.

    And, even if you could, every time you wanted to start it, an official
    Audi engineer would have to be present. Ask Dave Maraj how frustrating
    that is.

    Guud, ja?

    James,
    everything is different from "those" days :)
    no no I am not implying you are old LOL...

    R8 is one wicked machine. Would love to drive that to the office every now and then.

    "what do you mean I was going 45 in a 30, Officer? I was merely in idle!"

    AMS @ Autodromo del Levante in Bari has the CGT lapping the Enzo in under 60 laps - (note too the CGT is quite difficult to drive early on vs. the automatic Enzo so lap times should decrease more on the CGT than with the Enzo with experience):

    CGT: 53.86
    Enzo: 54.98
    Merci: 55.82
    SLR: 57.45

    Car is great looking but I think that the prices will drop on them because of their production numbers. They are making FAR more than the Enzo.

    at the top of the Gotthard pass during our fchat rally switzerland, we have accidentally met a gt in real, see pics at http://ferrarichat.com/forum/showthread.php?t=28705
    it was bought by a guy from thailand, which put 1000km on it in 2 days. actually it happened to be the car of an uncle of a ferrarichat member :)
    the world is small ....

    but i have to confess that i wasn't that impressed, the car looks rather unimposing and sounds like a vacuum cleaner :)
