Congratulations!

Does this mean that you will not have your QP 09 anymore?

Deal cancelled...no Tesla for now! There was an overwhelming opposition to parting with the QP from wife and kids and friends. Will stay with the QP for the foreseeable future. As for anyone considering the Tesla. I took the Tesla (85KW not the P85) to triple digits, it was very very quick and handled well over twisty roads. The overall experience is not that different to the QP (with FD upgrades and if you put your foot down aggressively). The QP is bigger, has more road presence, the styling, sound and the Trident badge just puts it a few notches above the Tesla IMO. I would have happily swapped that for the new technology aspect of the Tesla but for others (including a few of my friends) it's not something they would trade.

Good move, Volt. Why don't you trade for the new 2104 QP S Q4? There are some used ones around now-best car on the road....

I agree with Michael. Would you consider it?

I am not ready to buy again right at this moment due to many investments, but even a few QP GTS are currently for sale for the price of S Q4 (demo/dealer cars). Tempting...

Well got this on Friday.
The best " sports car" I have driven for under 90K

Leased this one for 2 years as the AMG-GT is my next " big" buy.

Levante may be in the future as well...depends what engines and transmission they drop in it

I've been narrowing it down the past few months but I think my next purchase is days away. This is the winner: 2010 Used Maserati Quattroporte 4dr Sdn S at Fort Lauderdale Collection Serving Pompano Beach, FL, IID 11259189
It's not mine yet but I'll post some pics once it's in the garage

Beautiful car! Did you get it yet?

Coincidentally, I just bought a 2005 Maserati Coupe less than 5 minutes away from that dealer at Stellar Autos in Pompano Beach. Here's a link to my purchase:

2005 Used Maserati Coupe Coupe at Stellar Autos Serving Pompano Beach, FL, IID 12461453

But that's not my most recent purchase. Just last week, I traded in my 2012 Jaguar XJL Portfolio for a 2014 XJL Portfolio at The Collection in Coral Gables.

2014 Jaguar XJ XJL Portfolio, $85,044 - Cars.com

Ironically, when I first bought the 2012, I had been looking at used QP's, but ultimately decided on a new XJL instead. I've been quite happy with it, which is why I went with a 2014 model rather than re-evaluating the QP this time around. (Please don't hate me, lol.) However, now that I also have the Coupe, I'm now able to enjoy the various amenities of both Maserati & Jaguar.

2014 Jaguar XJL Portfolio - Lunar Grey w/Navy (purchased 10/1/14)
