If 2011 is a good year...

Looking ahead to 2012...and a bigger garage.

What's the vote between:

1. 2010 Porsche 997 TT - coupe w/tiptronic and chrono -
- possibly with AWE 750 kit
- always wanted a TT in my lifetime ever since I had a 85 Targa

2. 2010 Audi R8 V10 - coupe
- stock
- love the looks but always thought the V8 was always wanting

3. 2010 MB CLK BS
- maybe headers and roll cage
- great drive and with the headers and mufflers massaged it sounds hellish


4. Nissan GTR
- with Cobb upgrade

Hey,

Ok for starters If I have to be truly honest, number 4 is automaticaly out for me. It's a Nissan the 1st choice would def be a great one next to number 4. The 997 TT is class with *****. Than again comes option 2 and 3 which are both mazing cars. This is why overall I would have to vote for number

****3**** why? Because you have 2 beautiful Benzes another black one would be like Batmans garage. This would make your car collection one of a kind.

If youre looking at any Porsche, go drive a PDK. It is a completely different car than anything youve driven before. The PDK makes the car feel like it has 50 more HP automatically.

Avoid the 2010 like plague. Get a 2007-09 (convert the lights if you love the look) then do the 700 hp deal. 2010 (997.2) won't take anywhere near that power on the stock case.

I know you wont leave the exterior stock lol like me as well, so my vote is the 997 TT.

I like the manual option as good as fast as the PDK is.

The AWE 750 kit OMG, I've seen it go on the freeway ( takes out just about everything I've seen) and is straight ridiculous...SOOO FAST.

I have not driven all of the cars on your list so my input is less than truly objective. I drove a CLK 63 BS at road Atlanta this summer. What an awesome machine it is.

After speaking to the tuner house (C2Design), I am leaning towards a white CLKBS in matte CF exterior details OR a black Porsche 997TT PDK. Now I need to bust my **** this year to finance this dream garage...

I guess I like having a project cars...

Big variance in price But, if you want opinions... Here is my 2 cents.


1. R8 V10 with TT kit. Game over x 2. (On my list of most wanted cars)

2. 997.2 TT (Crazy out of the box performance and fun to look at)

3. GTR (I like this car a lot. Best bang for the buck)

4. CLK63 BS (Slick ride, unique, sounds mean)


Oh yea, +1,000,000. GL to everyone in 2011. It's going to be a good year!

I would go for the 997 TT. Great ride..., incredible power and a very reliable daily commuter too.

Best of luck to you.

I don't have the insane garage like you do, but I am looking to change the M5 next year and two of my choices are pretty much the same... either a 2010 997TT PDK or a 2012 GT-R or the upcoming C63 AMG Black Series.

I'm heavily leaning towards the GT-R. I don't care what people say about it being a Nissan, the GT-R is a fantastic car. You can say the same thing about the upcoming C63 BS, it's a $100k C-Class. I don't care about status, I want something that I find fun to drive.

Either way, seeing how you've modded your cars, you won't be making a wrong decision

Go with the CLK BLK Series, you will not be dissapointed. I love the idea of flat white, however the black will def match your other rides.
