    That guy will be the first I know of that got 2. 

    Well probably the 2 families that had 4 918s might have multiples, but even the Americans who had 3 cars don't even get multiples.

    Same here . One guy in Geneva has 2  918 . He did not get any R .........    Smiley

    Why would someone want two 918's? Smiley

    One to drive and one to keep. 

    I regret not ordering a 2nd car when I had the chance. Many owners also felt the same way. The VIP program has nothing to do with that.

    Europe has no VIP program, no 1st dib rights. Getting allocations or not is purely a client/dealer relationship.

    I'm with bluelines in this one. The 911 R looks spectacular, but it remains a 911. The 918 is in another league imo.

    Common 911s look better than 918...

    918 looks better than a Cayman...

    But Spyder looks the best ;)

    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 R (2016)

    I would buy 3 911 Rs, one to drive, one for my museum and one to keep in the Safe at my bank...;) yes I have a huge Safe. I might even add a fourth one to showcase in my living room or garden but I am still hesitating. What do you think guys?

    Unless money is in unlimited supply that doesn't make much sense to me. Buy a P1, CGT, 993 GT2 or whatever different on the side that's also sure to keep its value. If you're going to speculate, I would at least diversify between collectible cars...

    But then you'll have to bring 2 cars every few months for the total disassembly due to the recalls. By the second year, they will have to write on your cars: Engineered in Germany. Assembled in Canada. Just like Apple :)
