Good Morning Everyone,

So I suppose I'll start.

1. If I wasn't driving my 6, I would probably want the 2018+ Honda Accord (they're so sleek and definitely got a styling upgrade)

2. My dream car used to be a C63s AMG, but I think I actually now want a Porsche 718 GT4


Now it's your guys' turn!

Dream car would be relatively easy for me - an 2019 Mustang Shelby GT350R. Just the Nastiest sounding and mean looking t boot. As for a daily, that's a little tougher since the Mazda6 does most everything I ask of a daily, but agree that the new Accords - especially with the 2.0T and manual would be an awesome choice - maybe an inline 6 BMW?

I have a 2000 Chevy Silverado that was my daily up til this summer when the A/C took a dump. So I’ve been racking up the miles on my Mazda for now. But anyways the Chevy is set to get the A/C fixed, the suspension rebuilt and a rear main seal replaced this fall and be back to daily beater status by December. As for a dream car, a Corvette with a Gen3 LS. I’m well educated with the Gen 3 small block and know what I would want to do to make it mine

Im kind of odd. I don't really have dream cars per say that you can buy. I have cars that I've wanted and so far as of now, I've been able to get my hands on them. I just bought a 2004 Chevy Avalanche 1500 on Friday that I've always wanted since they have come out.

Now my dream cars can/have to be built. Im slowly getting their with the 6 and a main part is to take place next year to accomplish this dream.

With that said, at some point in my life I want to build a 2nd gen Eclipse again but this time put into effect of my plans that I had when I had my 1st Eclipse. It was a Dodge/Chrysler powered 420a. Keeping with a Dodge engine, i wanted to convert it into a mid engine Hemi powered Eclipse. I had all sorts of notes, measurements, and the plan of attack when it was time for me to get rid of it. Just couldn't have a play vehicle at the time so such as life. One day though I will have one bad ass 1 of a kind 2nd gen Eclipse.

Thanks guys - wasn't around the computer all weekend and just had a moment to clean this up. New forum tools are nice but have to get used to the new process.

If I wasn't driving my 6 daily I'd want my 6 - in wagon form. And red. Because red. The forbidden fruit.

A realistic DD lottery car (or if I made way more money) would be a higher end Volvo wagon. Because awesome.

BUT... our Pacifica PHEV has made a wonderful impression over the past 1.5 years. And instead of a Volvo wagon I'd most likely go Audi E-Tron / Jag I-Pace / Tesla something just for an electric drive train. Because driving electric is awesome and addicting.

I love my 6, but when I was looking last year, I really wanted a Tesla Model 3, but there was still the waiting list (kind of) and they only had the $50k models available to purchase. I wasn't interested in spending that kind of money on a car with no real reliability history and that much on the bleeding edge.

So, if I had the money to spend, and didn't have to worry about losing it on an unreliable vehicle, I'd be driving something like a Model S or Model 3. I'm a perfect candidate for an electric vehicle because I work from home full time and my radius of driving is very small. I'm sure I'm not doing my 2.5T any favors with all the short mileage driving, but that's my life right now. I'm trying to take it out for a little bit longer drives as much as possible to help it out. Maintenance on an electric would be almost nothing for me.

Yeah I actually have highly considered the Model 3 as my next car since my commute is like 10 miles one way. It really is a great bargain plus it has a $7000 tax credit. I have done many tax returns (I'm a tax accountant) where people have purchased Teslas merely for the credit.

Focus RS is a beautiful little hatch with great power! Wow Panamera interesting choice :)
A good friend of mine has the RS and it is an absolute hoot to drive.

As far as the Panamera is concerned it was a head to head with the
E63 AMG wagon.. It was always a Porsche on my bedroom wall so that was the tipping point.

Yeah Porsche is a proven and capable company, it's hard to beat their cars' driving experience!
