    RC:

    Yesterday, me and my son had the pleasure to enjoy this little puppy.

    I am actually thinking about getting a used one in two years or so, after my 991 Turbo S lease runs out. Perfect weekend fun car and I would even consider this color. indecision

    My wife still told me that she would divorce me if I would get one but after she saw how people react to the car (pretty positively, which kind of surprised me), a quiet "maybe" came over here lips. 

    If I had the money, I would get the 918, no doubt about it but I think the Aventador is the next best thing if you have a "tight" budget.

    Looks like you've tested the pricey roadster.

    I prefer the coupe, but still holding back because of possible facelift *hopefully* by summer next year + power bump. Hence: no direct injection yet and 11.8:1 CR vs 13.5:1 CR for the F12.

    1st choice! can't have them both in same color though

    Sorry for going OT Smiley

    A very informative video! You really get a sense as to what it would be like driving the car.Smiley


    Re: 918 latest news Thread Closed

    The screen movement seems clunky and slow.  Perhaps needs faster processor?

    Or maybe because of the video quality?

    Looks like you've tested the pricey roadster.

    Forgot to mention it...of course I would only go for the Roadster. The roof panels were closed because it was very hot outside and they need to be "operated" manually (even if they aren't too heavy, the removal and storage is still a little bit inconvenient). Still...Roadster all the way because it would be a weekend car for nice weather only.

    Sorry for highjacking this thread but I was so overwhelmed with this car. Of course I would get a 918 if I could afford it.

    So long the 918 looks the most conservative...

    Re: 918 latest news Thread Closed

    918 will always be the boring looking one, at least from the front. The front of the car is more timeless classic while the rear has the wild side.

    Re: 918 latest news Thread Closed

    I think the 918 is exotic big time.  It's just not busy, over-desgined like its peers. And so with less cuts and swoops going on it gets labeled as "boring" but only compared to $1,000,000 company.  I'd rather say it is beautiful and leave it at that.

    I don't know, me think this is the one colour the 918 doesn't look good in.

    Re: 918 latest news Thread Closed

    Agreed.CGT was great in red yellow or blue. The 918 not so. That leaves silver and black...


    Re: 918 latest news Thread Closed

    I like it angry


    Re: 918 latest news Thread Closed

    The front end does look similar to the Ferrari 360.

    My wife would be only OK if I "hide" the car somewhere. Smiley

    Hmm...

    Well, luckily(?), neither the 918 or the Aventador are "accessible" for me right now, so one worry less. Smiley Smiley

    Re: 918 latest news Thread Closed

    Maybe try do what I did with the 918? Try to hide it until the last possible moment? 

    After I 'shocked' her with the 918, she said she hates it when I come back home and say by the way I bought another car. So I promised to try to not do it again. But I almost did.

    I was looking for a Carrera GT the last 2 weeks, I ended up with not 1 but 2 candidates, both currently in Canada and for about the same price. Was going to finalized one of them today. But you know life, it always throws curveballs when you least expected it.

    My friend asked me to tag along with him as he is ordering a car for next year, so I did. And I walked out with a car. 

    Well, not quite, but will be taking delivery next week, perhaps.

    The CGT will once again be put on the back burner like last year. Last year I walked into Porsche expecting to finalized a deal for a CGT, but walked out with a deposit for a 918. For some reason me and the CGT has no luck getting together, like the Vantage, had 3 chances to buy one and still ended up with none.

    Anyway, it was a literally a last minute cancel and as luck would have it the sales manager was taking the call for the cancellation while talking with my friend for his order. It is something special that won me over the CGT.

    As for what it is, stay tuned :)

    I think red works quite well... It also makes a difference what the setting is with a picture. The off-white walls and beige floor tiles don't help.


    Re: 918 latest news Thread Closed

    Whoopsy:

    As for what it is, stay tuned :)

    Hmm...458 Speciale, Lamborghini Gallardo (one of the latest "edition" versions) or Aventador, maybe the F12 or the FF?

    C'mon, Nick...just spill the beans. Smiley Smiley

    If you got yourself the Aventador, I officially hate you now. Smiley

    Re: 918 latest news Thread Closed

    Lol, It's not a a-vent-a-door.  But it was a very tempting car too, followed a blue roadster on my way to the rally earlier. Looks extremely good.

    Anyway, I said it was something special, and in Italian it's Speciale kiss

    My friend was ordering a California T when the phone rang. Salesman then took us to the car and boy was that a big mistake. Fell in love with it first sight. White with black roof, flinty of carbon everywhere.

    The clincher was that it is the first car in town, no one else got one yet. Also will be my first Ferrari ever. Sadly I will be parting with my 12C.
