    I'm wondering why you set yourself up for disappointment in the first place with "only" a 6 car garage attached to your massive home? ;-)

    Urus.

    Jeep trackhawk if you need to go low key.

    Mercedes g63. Buy it at sticker and you won't lose much money in 30k miles. Heck get a 550. They are fast too

    Considering my hypothetical wife would have an SUV that I could borrow when I needed the extra space, I would cross off all of the cars that are too practical for me. That would leave me looking at a 550, gated F430, 997.2 GT3RS, 991.2 GT3 manual, first-gen R8 V10 manual, 718 Cayman GT4, DBS manual, or Evora GT manual. I do a decent amount of driving, so the DBS would probably be my top pick as it blends performance and luxury better than the other cars imo, but I'd be happy with any of them.

    For a year, my only car was a Murcielago.

    I had a couple 996's (1 LS swapped, 1 TT), Z3M coupe, a couple Viper GTS and now 575M for a daily. Just depends what you want.

    So been in a holding pattern as the place we want we find out tomorrow if we get it. We put in an offer and they let us know tomorow. If we get it- it’s new construction so won’t be ready till next fall.

    Right now on the short list of cars is:

    GT3- maybe a 2018/2019 winged edition. Manual
    Ferrari 488
    Ferrari F12

    don’t want anything too much more expensive as it’s a second home and we will be splitting time with our primary residence. So no Paganini, la Ferrari etc.

    I will rack up some miles on the car so want something dependable and reliable.

    Thought about the corvette C8 but just can’t get myself to like it enough to buy. It’s a very nice car but not foe me.

    The above are the front runners. I have a bit of time as they do construction. Meanwhile, our plans for the new home in Scottsdale are going to the city next week. Probably 18 months build time.

    So two new homes coming up. One small cozy near the ocean. Another our primary residence.

    great feedback from everyone. Lots of interesting choices to consider.

    Yes .... I’m shopping ....

    On my list if things pan out ....

    Love Scottsdale ... can you give us/me a casual idea of which ocean area you’re heading to ? Just curious. Good luck.

    Only one car is something I cannot imagine ;) because different cars are satisfying in very different ways...
    Instead I may consider in some future to drop one - that would be the "utility" one if alternative solutions develop.

    This would be the ideal opportunity for that Porsche swap car program if they have any decent cars in the program to begin with

    I think you mean just the opposite. Offer ACCEPTED... :)

    You said it still has to be somewhat practical so id go with a GTC4 Lusso.

    If it could be just any one car with no $ or practicality concerns, id go with a 250LM.
