Have to see one up close. Meanwhile, my uncle's 2006 Boxster--the first Porsche I've ever sat in besides an 80's 911--is pretty dang awesome!

If you think the Turbo has scary acceleration, don't get in the GT2, it's crazy. I was genuinely scared to floor it because it could get sideways so fast. In the TT the AWD keeps you straight. I'm waiting for a friend to pick up a 997TT now that he got rid of the GT2.

Living in Naples I see LOTS of nice cars. I saw a yellow Carrera GT last week and an Enzo the week before, and there are plenty of Lamborghini's, Ferrari's, Bentley's, etc. LOTS of money in Naples, but it seems there are no roadster fans :cry:

sorry... i dunno if it tops the mclaren mercedees slr i saw 2 weeks ago. it looked like a big freakin shark when it passed me up!
probably not but these cars are in a pretty exclusive club of being OBSCENELY exspensive !!!

I reckon in order they must be :

bugatti veyron
ferrari enzo
maseratti mc-1 ( cant remember the correct number of this one ! )
slr
carrera gt
konigsigg ( spelling )
pagani zonda

( just including current/recent models )

Those cars are sweet, we have a yellow one that cruises around town sometimes. Would you believe the guy took his to a tint shop?? CRAZY! Well i don't know if he got his windows done. Harleysville may be small and you could drive right through it but you'd be surprised at some of the residents. In fact we had lawyer living in one of the small neighborhoods with Gallardo and this is just an average joe kind of place. And the owner of the local home building company? He drives one of many sports cars. Not very exspensive but he still drives a Prowler around. And the top dogs at our insurance company drive new porsches. A few weeks ago though, I noticed a white Porsche GT2 in town. I guess someone got a new car? lol. But yeah Carrera GT-s are amazing machines . I saw a Ford GT driving on the way to school about 20mins ago lol.

i work in south ken so i get to see some great cars from all the yuppies driving past, plus there is a lambourghini show room next door and our other site sells even more exotic cars (i.e the million dollar + catergory)

so far i have seen..

100 X lamboghini
1 X porsche 959
1 X merc SLR
3 X Enzo
100000 X normal ferrari's
1 x Zonda

959 was the best spot i wreckon, rare as a pocket fox

Anywhere in the LA area is a good place to see exotics. Heck, I saw a $300k Maybach parked between a Protege and a Probe on the street in Manhattan Beach :shock:

I'm lucky. There's been two times I've gotten to get up close and personal with a Carrera GT, and the first one was at a track day.

When Forza shipped, one of the guys organized a trackday, and got a bunch of people out with cars from the game, plus all of us from the team. 2 of the cars happened to be a GT and an Enzo.

I got to wave both of them by multiple times in my WRX, and while the Enzo sounded great and had the trademark Ferrari wail, the Porsche just sounded incredible each time he bombed past me. Gave me goosebumps each time. It's just this indescribable banshee wail, and though I know I'll never get to own one, it was almost good enough to get to hear one.

Somehow the next one i saw parked indoors wasn't quite as special, comparitively. :(
