Also, no problem. Drop me a line if you ever need anything. Also, bookmark suncoast Porsche for parts. Thanks. I just ordered from Suncoast. :) Sonnen is also supposed to be good and they are very close to me, but their site isn't as nice as Suncoast. Suncoast generally sell at 10-15% over cost fro...

You’re looking at the new GT3 coming in late 2020 and an RS in 2021 at the earliest right now. These are the last new GT cars coming for a while, so values will hold very well. I’ve easily got a dozen more GT cars coming. I have 5 GT2’s in inventory. Your GTS is in a similar boat which is why I tho...

Ordered my first parts for the GTS.

OEM clear front LED side markers.
Indoor car cover
Frunk hood liner/protector.

So it begins.
Track day next. Even if it’s just an SCCA Track Night for $150.

What is the difference between the base 911 and the GTS? I don't sense any animosity towards the p car purchase, just a lack of exposure and n00b questions.... but I'm always the last to register that kind of BS I can't see myself purchasing a new 911 but would love to own one. The p-tax hits me ex...

Few of these cars are actually driven on the track. They’re status symbols and flipped from owner to owner. You’ve owned race/track prepped cars and karts, right? You know that’s a whole other level of commitment. At least with a production series car you’ve got a dealer network, a warranty, and do...

It’s kind of a bummer, in the “don’t meet your heroes” kind of way.

I can tell you first hand i’d buy a GT2RS at $420k over a 720S at the same price in a heartbeat. The McLaren is fragile, will spend months at a time in the shop, and just doesn’t have the same “heft” to it. With all the pedigree and engineering in the 911, you can drive it to the track, slay lap af...

I have seen a 720 delivered off the transport that we have had to replace a dashboard and front fender on that came loose on the boat. We had a 675 LT Spider arrive with the wrong color interior and an A pillar trim missing entirely. They are engineering marvels and phenomenal performers. I feel th...

This is where Porsche is going with it’s upper echelon models. Average household income of a Porsche client is around $550k, ahead of second place Jaguar around $220 k and Benz around $110. That number has recently gone down because of the 4 cylinder Macan. Porsche are getting wise to the resale/de...

Same thing, except the extra zeros and the fact that you could just buy some rental apartments in Oakland and make section 8 money forever on them... I dunno..

Sometimes you have some much money you don’t care.

Dramatic Downsizing - Dafuq Do I Doit?

All signs are pointing to not buying a house and you tell yourself you keep making life's worst decisions. This is one of them, in my opinion. House is not an investment there. Rent at $1200 for a 1/1 is NOT NYC rent pricing. I have friends that live in NYC they pay $2,600 for a 500sq.ft studio. On...

If any automaker goes bankrupt because they cand predict market trends based on historical data and analytics of market/economy/etc. then they don’t deserve to be bailed out should they fail.

Launch control in this thing is a hoot. Way better with the engine in the rear compared to the C6 and C7 launch control. The way it just squats down and goes is amazing. In the C4 GTS it’s just a constant surge of power. In the Turbo/Turbo S it’s all that just sped up a half a second. I was lucky e...
