    Now that the year is over, was wondering what types and how many cars did you buy in the calendar year of 2015?

    Cars bought in order for 2015:

    1. 2015 Porsche Boxster GTS
    2. 2015 Jaguar F-Type 495 hp S
    3. 2008 Ferrari 430 Spider
    4. 2011 Porsche 911 Turbo S
    5. 2013 Ferrari 458 Spider
    6. 2014 Lotus Evora S
    7. Deposit on 2017 Lotus Evora 400

    I bought and traded back in, sold or kept 7.
    The Lotus Evora 400 is the only one that I have not received yet and should be here in January sometime. I am counting it also because I put the deposit down in December.

    The 2 Lotus' I have bought for my girlfriend ......but I drive them as well.

    As far as the Ferrari's go......I bought the 2008 F430 with 3,000 miles on it (One 600 Mile road trip )and sold it 3 1/2 months later to make room for the 458.

    I put 5,000 miles on the 430 in the short time I had it. The 458 I have had since Sept. 21st, have put 5,000 miles on it also, have not left the city driving it, and have been in CanCun for the past week not putting miles on it.

    My plans for 2016? I plan on just keeping the 458 for quite a while a long with the Evora 400. I could conceivably see me trading the Evora 400 in for the spider version when it comes out and possibly a 488.

    I only do Spiders as I live in a sunny place (Las Vegas) and can't imagine a car that I don't have both top on and top off......except of course for my 2007 H2 Hummer that has 170,000 miles on it but even that has a sunroof.

    The Evora S and Evora 400 (upgrade) are for my girlfriend and that is why they are not spiders.

    That's the story and worst/best case scenario for the coming year. Add your story as well if you'd like.

    Final thoughts in retrospect.......
    Should have just bought the 458 from the get go. LOL

    Two reasons, dumped before depreciation bomb hit and second found out 580-2 was coming and wanted something 'more fun' to throw around. The 610-4 is amazing and the electronics and dash are incredible (and oh that engine noise is sweet). The reviews have been great on 580, so looking forward to it (April).

    Right now just waiting on 458 (first stop in Dallas then to me in Austin) which should be a blast as well.

    Hey!! That's cheating!! If you are going to count that, then I'm including mine and my girlfriend's super charged bikes while we are in CanCun now.

    They even brought to our hotel the special low profile versions with extra trunk space.

    The year is not over so I'm counting these also![​IMG]
