I'll take an LFA for the rest of my life.

Wife can buy a Sienna or Highlander or RX with her own money and lug the kids around. Problem solved.

Something more like these. You know its that quirky German off-roader, but it isn't some pretentious $100,000+ Chelsea Tractor like they sell here in the US.

I would like 6x6 G Wagon, but that would be waaaaaaaay overkill on the road.

I would said that will be a car that I built my-self. I'm not talking about "build-your-own" on a dealer website. I actually mean buy a junk for the frame/chassis and build it with parts of your choice and upgrade it whenever you want.

Being said, I don't think I will stick with only one car that someone design for mass production.

Tough choice, but I will go with a Porsche 911, really it has been the same basic idea since 1963. so it has proven to last a long time, so I would pick a 2013 911 Turbo S, the ultimate GT !

It makes much more sense for Porsche to develop a PDK that meshes perfectly with their engines, rather split effort developing a manual only Americans, and a far minority at that, will ever drive.

In the end, even those who complain about the lack of a manual will still buy one with the PDK, because there is no substitute for the 911.
