12 What would you buy?

I know these cars are very different, but just let me know what you would buy.

Say you already had a good daily driver (911 C4), but you want a nice summer car to replace your other car (NSX). This is completely hypothetical... :wink:

I'd definitely get the Cayman. It is much better looking than the others (except for the Elise and the 911). It also has much higher quality than the others.

i'd buy the cayman because it's an extension of your will....(i hate that cliche!) mostly because of the gas mileage but also because it sounds awesome to drive and has decent storage space. and it looks better than my toyota pickup........damn

oh and it would have to be the S

I would take the new scirrocco just because i love the old one, but its incredibly nice.

A Scirrocco, that's the craziest thing I've ever heard, I wouldn't put that in the same league as the other cars.

I decided to save for a little longer and try for an Ariel Atom, for now I went out and bought a sportbike (07 Yamaha R1), I'll ride that this summer and put some money into my Porsche.

a car with 8 liter gas engine is not for 21th century. Why would you replace NSX?

The first point is a sterotype, the second point I agree with completely. If I had an NSX, I'd only buy one of those other cars after I made enough money to earn both, unless for some reason I was completely incapable of advancing financially.

Anyway, I'd choose the Viper since it's probably the fastest out of that bunch, and besides that it's my favorite car. Though since it's 04, it would be the convertable, so handling won't be as good as the coupe, my only complaint.

Up here in Canuckada the Elise is the same price as the Viper SRT-10. I'm looking at around $55,000 for either of them.

I'm not worried about fuel, my partner at work has an SRT-10 and he says it's actually not that bad on fuel, he's done a couple large road trips with it.

I rode bikes for 7 years, I had a 2000 Honda CBR600F4 for 4 years, I loved it. Then I sold it and bought a 2004 Yamaha R1 and rode it for 2 years. I really miss riding, but I just don't have enough self control for one. I've been looking at a Ducati 996 just for cruising around and trying not to die, but that'll be later.

I've had the NSX for two years now, I've had a lot of fun with it, I've raced it several times on different tracks. Now I either want a really light car like the Elise with incredible handling, or a big power car like the Viper. I'm mostly looking for something I don't have to modify to have fun with. I've done enough wrenching when I was a DSM (Eagle Talon) guy.

I'm still not sure what I want, one thing I really think will be important will be open top, either Targa or Convertible. Right now I'm leaning towards an SRT-10 just because I haven't had a really fast car since my heavily modified Talon.

From these cars you gave me I chose Lotus Elise because it's (the initial first gen model) affordable and should be fun to drive. Viper SRT-10 could be an option if I had enough money to buy it and feed it with gas. And - a car with 8 liter gas engine is not for 21th century. After all I would just buy a nice new motorcycle for this season. Way more fun and pleasure, way cheaper to buy and run and better to the environment (if you care about that stuff). Motorcycle is a device that converts gasoline into pure adrenalin and does it with 100% efficiently. Why would you replace NSX?
