    Latest generation, not that one. Sorry if I got the name wrong. Now THAT is what a car should sound like.

    What's with those guys? Bit... chodey?
    I'm not even sure how I would describe them. Old, white, political, opinionated, males, with lots of money, from florida, the midwest, california, or texas.... That's the best I can do.

    edit: and also, how dare you? How DARE you?

    edit 2: I can't imagine the c7 z06 crowd would be super great either....

    My brain isn't wired to drive fast stuff slow. There are a couple of spots around Boston where I can reliably 4 wheel drift a Prius in the wet without freaking out the traction control. Fast cars and the street and my license are incompatible. No restraint for long.

    The C8 vert is checking all the boxes for me. Mid-engine hardtop convertible with a warranty under 100k, yes please.

    Ive always enjoyed acceleration more than top speed. WOT to 10 over the speed limit then let off. Love that G-force feeling

    The C8 is supposed to be like $60k when the prices stabilize. Its CRAZY value.

    My budget cool wagon is my daily Volvo XC70 with a 6spd V70R swap, along with interior parts, brakes etc.

    V70R wagon prices are insane along with all the other performance cool wagons.

    Lots of utility in a wagon for sure.

    Agreed, except I can't let off at 10 over. First time I drove an STI when they first came out was on a little side road. I got boost happy and just kept grabbing gears. Oooooo, that says 110! Fuck, I shouldn't be anywhere near that here. Even my truck sees the limiter from time to time and that thing has no business being there with those brakes. Boost builds and I get giddy and stupid faster then the speedo rises.

    Did you order a few extra apex seals?
    The motor has less than 100 miles on it, straight from a rotary shop.

    Honestly the engine itself is the only thing I'm not worried about on it. Ha.

    Well, if it's still at the dealer on Saturday I'm buying a BMW M240i, so I guess that's it.

    Late 90's Supra tastefully modded as depicted below... Preferably with about 800ish HP.

    “Realistic” dream car ... the original Toyota MR2 turbo - the poor mans Ferrari.

    Was looking at one new many years ago right before the wife became pregnant and life turned toward Subaru wagons ...

    Thats a great call. Still quite affordable too. (I assume you mean 2nd gen).

    I had 2 NA and they were really awesome cars other than the T- Top leaks. Still have a very soft spot in my heart for these cars. Really cool to be in such a small cockpit and the motor right behind you.

    Re: What's your realistic dream car?

    I know I’m a little late to this. My dream car doesn’t really exist, so in theory what I want is a small, 5 door wagon, with 500 horsepower out of a I6 turbo, AWD, and a real 3 pedal manual (a sequential if I’m really dreaming). Plus leather and a nice sound system. The RS6 avant is kind of close, minus the manual. The Golf R also isn’t too far off, except the power. But, I picture something more like the new Mazda 3 with a m2 competition s58 motor in it.



    For cars that actually exist, that I could potentially see myself buying in the future:
    BMW m2 Competition
    5the gen Camaro ZL1
    C6 z06 or any C7 or if a manual was in a C8
    New Supra if they release a manual
    Gt350

    And for perspective, I have a truck and a modified BMW 135i now.

    Re: What's your realistic dream car?

    Yes, you’re right - 2nd gen. My other choice would be a 240Z.

    My father in his second (or third) childhood had a series of Datsun 240/280/300 Zs. Great fun those things. Have a wonderful mental image of doing a 4 wheel drift pass a VA state trooper in a 300 Z turbo on a back road. For some reason he didn’t turn around. Perhaps he appreciated the artistry of a well executed, controlled drift. Either that, or the Z simply disappeared down a side road.

    Sounds like a shrunken CTD Ram with a cap.

    Those cars were fantastic and ahead of their time.

    I just googled what a PDR recorder is!

    The Performance Data Recorder (PDR), available on 2015 Corvette Stingray and Corvette Z06 models, allows you to record, share and analyze your driving experiences on and off the track.
