In the short term, sure. It'll take quite a while before self-driving cars trickle down down to all parts of society... But there's no reason sensors and software won't be able to eventually overcome...

First of all, my apologies for coming off a little more condescending and snarky than I intended to there... It's a problem I have on forums. Especially after a happy hour and a rough day, heh.

I'd say that what destroyed the American worker, if anything, is automation and an ever growing trend towards oligarchy. Not to mention a completely broken primary and secondary education system. Not...

I don't understand why people are so convinced it's "better" to build stuff here. It's just selfish thinking if you ask me. What makes Americans more deserving of these jobs than Mexicans? It would...

Incidentally, my dealer actually kinda screwed me on the order. My first choice was Porsche's "Racing Yellow". Long story (not sure if I already told it in this thread, actually, heh).



Thanks!...

Driving is fun in certain situations (especially at the track), but this is old man thinking. When people no longer have to drive, the world will be better for it.

I will go on record as saying, yes, some kids born today will never have to learn how to drive when they would have if they were born five years earlier.

Not all, though... Autonomous cars will be...

Belated update, but I ended up getting the GT4. Picked it up in July, still only has about 900 miles on it (long story). Had the Grand Sport been available at the time, the question may have become...

Car looks good, and I'm sure it will fly down a track like a bat out of hell... but that's about where anything positive I feel like I can say about it ends. Same holds true for most modern supercars...

Yep. I was really surprised they didn't address any of those issues with the 6th gen redesign... It looks almost exactly the same to me. I mean it would be one thing to compromise visibility on a...

Well the thing is that if they didn't limit production, no one would be paying marked up prices for any GT4s. They might not even be paying MSRP.

Yeah, I really wish I could get a rearview camera and keyless entry/ignition on the Porsche -- something I've had in other cars I've driven for nearly a decade now.

To me, there are still major...

From what I've been seeing over at Rennlist, the demand still outweighs the supply. It's not quite GT350R territory at this point, but dealers in many places (especially Cali) are still getting 5-10K...

For the price difference, I think the GTS is just too inferior of a performance car. More weight, significantly less power, significantly smaller brakes, weaker chassis.

Congrats on the new ride. Was it mostly the great deal you got that made you pick it over, say, an M5 or M6? (since you said you wanted fun)




What if you had a 128i and she had a K900? ;)
