If you have to use it all, it's not enough. Pertains to HP and Garage Space..

thinking of trading my panamera for a quattroporte, saw one last week in LA , much better looking car in person, photos do not do it justice, the one i saw was a dark gray, black interior, and smoked out rims, very striking car , got my juices flowing. My wife is about to kill me, ive only had the panamera for a few months LOL

Here's the car I've been jones-ing for, but it just sold. If it is as nice as it appears, it was probably priced right. The search goes on.

As I've mentioned elsewhere on the forum, my current aim is to get a black 612 Scaglietti and keep the QP long term as the 'practical' car! I think the two cars will look pretty cool next to each other! All once I am happy the growth rate of my new business has stabilised...
Mowlas, I share your admiration for the 612 and have it on my list. I suppose if the 599s drop, I might take a GTB over the Scaglietti, but that's the decision I expect to make at some point, but happy with the GT Sport for the foreseeable future.

2014 should bring a different car in my garage. Not yet what I was expecting as I am still in an investment mode for a 2nd business started a few years ago (and now a 3rd one, in the music industry). Therefore the need to be prudent and more conservative, which means that the 612 that I really wanted in the coming year would have to wait (or likely replaced by a FF in a few years from now when ready).

Several available options within my budget (the car being my daily driver):

. Purchasing a certified 2011 QP or GranTurismo (had a QP before and loooved it, the GT is stunning too)
. Leasing a new QP with the V8 engine
. Leasing a new supercharged Range Rover

. Purchasing a 2010/2011 Aston Martin (last on the list)

My girlfriend really likes the Ghibli but no V8 yet and I prefer the QP. The Maserati Levante is also a real possibility if available in 2014.

I mentioned to my girlfriend (future wife) that I could buy a Lemon Prius and it seems that she is more in love with me than ever. I mentioned it out loud in a bar too: guys were all proud of me and pretty girls had naughty eyes when talking to me... If only I could find a Lemon Prius...

Well I just finished working (11pm, tax season) and I guess it's time to go home and stop thinking of the Lemon Prius...

More to come (car choices)...

I think you're right lol!

But I have to try. Because wife's GT3 will be 100% paid off by then and will give me more leverage with wife to get a Scud or 458. Plus other things we want to invest in right now lol

My next car purchase will be a tough one. Not sure about the marque or model yet but I'm sure it'll be in 1:43 scale
