    What would you get after your Porsche?

    Now that you are enjoying a Porsche 997, what would be your dream car now?

    Is it an F430?
    Or a Gallardo?
    Maybe a DB9?

    Tell us what brand would you like to own next? If you want to stick with Porsche, that's fine as well, just indicate which model?

    Re: What would you get after your Porsche?

    I would love the F430 but the wait list is too long so I would go for the Gallardo.

    Re: What would you get after your Porsche?

    It is interesting reading on Ferrari chat all of the comments from new 430 owners who had 996TT's and 997"s and now say how much more they enjoy the 430 over the Porsches they use to have . The wait the extra money all make it a difficult transition but it seems that owning and driving a 430 really is the next step up . Again to have both I think would be the idea situation as they are really two different cars .

    Re: What would you get after your Porsche?

    I would love to have a F-612 Scag, but I'd probably like to get the Gallardo SE

    Re: What would you get after your Porsche?

    575M SuperAmerica with 6 speed if I could get one, I am not into this paddle shift stufff

    Re: What would you get after your Porsche?

    I would love the F430. How long is the wait list?

    Re: What would you get after your Porsche?

    I really like the F430. Delivery time is now march 07, at least in Germany.So I looked for the Gallardo and was really impressed. It is like sitting in a fighter jetplane. I am not sure if this is a car for everyday driving like a Porsche is.I will also be looking for the Audi R 9. I hope Audi will show it in Geneva.

    Re: What would you get after your Porsche?

    I would love an F430 but the price is too much for my blood.

    Re: What would you get after your Porsche?

    I'd love a Ferrari too. Might even be able to afford a 430 in a couple of years, but I don't think I'd be able to swallow the running costs...

    You hear Ferrari horror stories about Pounds6k services every 4000 miles all too often.

    For me it is the other way around

    I enjoy my TT very much - following the Ferrari experience

    Recently I have been thinking that a classic Ferrari (Daytona, 512BB, 275GTB - 250GT SWB is probably a bit too expensive) might form the perfect sports car combo with a new 997TTS? The historical Ferraris do not have the ambition to be top performing sports cars but represent nothing but style and elegance.

    The problem with F430 et al is: they are not as fast and efficient as a Porsche turbo. However, their appearance sets that expectation... I am afraid that I cannot stand the gap between expectation and reality any longer

    Re: What would you get after your Porsche?

    430 Would be nice, but realistically for my case, Id probably get a nice sport sedan, ie: E55 AMG, or maybe to be more on my level a nice QUAD cab Dodge Ram Hemi Truck. In my area having a truck would be very useful.

    Re: What would you get after your Porsche?

    my dream car is still a porsche... 997 turbo

    You are dreaming the right dream

    Re: What would you get after your Porsche?

    Skoda , Yugo or a Lada ..

    AWESOME ..

    throt..

    Re: What would you get after your Porsche?

    Carrera GT (if I can ever find one when that time comes)

    Re: What would you get after your Porsche?

    Shoot, I'll take a Ford GT please, minus the optional stripes. Call me crude, I don't care. It's a work of art..

    Re: What would you get after your Porsche?

    No question - Pagani Zonda F. Id love to have the Zonda and a Carrera GT in the garage though, and use the 997S as the daily driver.

    I'd love a 612 also, but realistically a DB9 would be nice (if they were more reliable).

    Re: What would you get after your Porsche?

    I'm gonna git me one a them Eye-talyun Ferrari Spiders. Pre-owned maybe. (will keep CarreraS)

    Re: What would you get after your Porsche?

    Next car is going to be something for the family: minivan or SUV.

    After that, 997 turbo. (probably turbo S)

    By the time I'm done paying for the d*mn thing it will be time to get a golf cart with running lights, deuces, fart can exhaust, and start frightening the "Sunset Boulevard" gated seniors community with my eratic libido and dwindling testosterone...

    Re: What would you get after your Porsche?

    My dream-car-plan (in purchase order):

    1) Porsche 997C2S Cab [check!]
    2) Upgrade my Audi S3 to an RS6 Avant (more practical for kids & dogs)
    3) Ferrari F430 or Lamborghini Gallardo (or both!)
    4) Mercedes SLR (mainly for that noise!)

    Would also love an Aston at some point but not for about 15-20 years. Pure 'hyper-cars' such as the Carrera GT/Zonda/Enzo are a little too 'intense' for me on public roads.

    Right, better get back to work to earn some more money I think!!

    Re: What would you get after your Porsche?

    A coffin - but not for awhile!!

    Re: What would you get after your Porsche?

    Dream car?

    No question, Carrera GT.

    Ford GT is a very close second, but I've never driven either, so I'd reserve my final answer . . .

    Re: What would you get after your Porsche?

    Bentley Arnage. For carrying four passengers in style and comfort, a Bentley Arnage is hard to beat.

    I've discovered that you can't even get on a list unless you buy a couple of Maseratis or used Ferraris from that particular dealership first. It's quite a business model, and I still am not sure how it works!

    Re: What would you get after your Porsche?

    Come on guys, Enzo all the way. Carrera GT after that. F430 Spyder after that.

    Re: What would you get after your Porsche?

    997 TT convertable for every day use and performance, F430 and Gallardo are way too flashy for my taste.

    Re: What would you get after your Porsche?

    Murcielago is still my dream car

    Re: What would you get after your Porsche?

    Another Porsche. I love the F430, but would not own one for two reasons: 1- My kids are only 9 and 11, and I am not ready to stop hearing the giggles when the top is down on a beautiful summer day, and 2- Although I would surely appreciate the craftsmanship and performance of the Ferrari, I would feel like I was in a fishbowl everywhere I went. Pulling up to Starbucks just wouldn't be the same, too glam for me, thats just imho.
