    Today in Raleigh: grey Panoz Esperante at Sheetz on 401 near Ten Ten a little after 4p today. Never seen one of these on the streets before, different one than the blue Esperante that has been seen by a few users on here recently.

    -White current-gen Audi R8 with black wheels leaving Trader Joe's around 1:15p. First time seeing this one around.

    11/1
    -White Porsche 991.1 GT3 leaving La Farm

    11/3 in Charlotte:
    -Red California at the Stone Crest shopping Center in Ballantyne around 1:45p.
    -Red Lamborghini Huracan LP580 Spyder on Kings at Morehead around 4p or so.

    11/4 in Cary:
    -White BMW i8 Roadster at La Farm shortly before 3p. Second one I've seen in the Triangle already.

    11/5 in Cary:
    -Black McLaren 12C Spider at La Farm tonight around 4:30p. (I work here, just calling everything as I see them). Owned by Taggart, seen it before.

    There's a Black McLaren 570S I see every single morning in the Apex / Cary (NC) areas driving on NC55.

    Nice to see an exotic being daily driven!

    Spotted a red 308 GTS running eastbound on NC64 while driving westbound in my grey 308GTB. Pretty sure it was a QV. Sorry no pics. JP

    That was me!...and yes, a QV. I was just returning from a appointment where someone was test driving my car to buy. And he bought it today which means that was my last drive in my 308...what an absolutely terrific car!

    Later that afternoon, I saw a red 430 running through downtown Apex...it was a Ferrari Sunday!

    I usually don't post non-Ferrari exotic sightings on this thread, but yesterday around 12:30, I had a brand new black Lamborghini Aventador Spider turn right into the WalMart parking lot in Indian Land in the lane next to me. Always shocked by how low the roofline these cars have, and what a sound!

    BTW - the red 488 Spider that Nicholas posted is the same one as I saw on 521 twice now in the last couple of months, nice to see its being exercised regularly!

    Lambos and McLarens count, there are a few owners of each on FChat. Also, what was an Aventador doing at Walmart? Haha

    There are quite a few 488 Spiders around the Charlotte area, and I wouldn't be surprised if it's a different one actually. I've seen a different but identically-specced one at the Ritz in uptown before. The owner of this had a red California several years ago, then got a red California T, and now has this. I've only seen his cars in the Southpark area.

    My brother mentioned that he saw something “insane looking” driving through downtown Raleigh yesterday afternoon while he was in a meeting. Said he only caight a brief glance out of a window, but after talking with him, it sounded like it might have been either a McLaren P1 or possibly a Senna. It was black or dark grey. I know we’ve got a few P1s and a Senna in the Triangle, maybe it was indeed one of those?

    Last sighting of 2018 ended up being the matte grey 720S parked on Glenwood on 12/29 around 10p. What an unbelievable-looking car, glad I finally got to see one up close in person!

    Strangely, for the second year in a row, my first sighting was an Alfa Romeo 4C. Saw a white one with red, green, and white stripes on Hillsborough St a little after 6p tonight. Not the best pic, but still really cool to see out on the streets.

    I have yet to see a 720S in the wild yet. There must be far more exotics in the Triangle than there are in Charlotte, either that or you are a professional spotter!!

    That 720s belongs to a gentleman here in North Raleigh who sometimes brings it to C+C events. He's also an FCA - NC Chapter member
