Definitely go for the battleship! You could have someone build a little pod to ride in and just shoot yourself out of the 18" guns to where ever you are going. That would have to be the most baller shit ever.

don't forget to add the tomahawk missle option, it will come handy from time to time.

A Boxster is cheaper than a Cayman and a Cayenne is even cheaper than a Boxster making the Cayman the second most expensive car Porsche makes... not the cheapest.

Porsche doesn't make that car anymore. I would have counted it as third if they did.

I've never owned a Ferrari and I'll be like half the people here and say "GET IT OMG YOU WONT REGRET IT."

On another note, this thread is entertaining.

@OP - Maybe your intentions aren't bad, but you need to realize, people on the internet do not really know you so you sometimes have to realize you might come across a bit like a braggart.

OK, I just read this whole thing and it is ridiculous.

OP: You want to get rid of your BMW because of it's reliability issues and step into a hand built Italian supercar as your daily driver and only vehicle. Plus the 360 you are looking at is at the bottom of the price range for those car which most likely indicates either poor maintenance, high mileage, abused or, something else along those lines. Not to mention getting it serviced isn't like dropping the car off and picking up a few hours later. There is a lot of down time with a car like that. Definitely not a smart move.

You want it to impress clients with this vehicle. What are you going to do when you have to take a couple to look at a house? Strap the chick to engine cover? Besides most clients who are buying houses in this price range probably won't be too impressed by an almost decade old Ferrari.

Ever think about a Cayenne Turbo or something along those lines. It'd be a good people mover and a nice daily driver vehicle.

THANKS YOU FOR YOUR WISE COMMENT.

I have asked my other friend. he said it is not worth to buy. you will have to spend more time fixing it and $$$$. IT is also hard to find special insurance group to insure your car.. it is not a cheap maintance car to beginning with.. Other popular insurance group wont insurance for you because the high cost when something go wrong.

No problem. A few people I work with own Ferrari's and not one of them uses the car for reliable transportation. They are all more of a toy than anything else.

If you are in your 30s and are concerned with what other people are driving, you've got more to worry about that your wheels.

Well I personally am nowhere near my 30's. And that is my point many members on here are concerned about what others drive and will down anyone who is doing better than them.
