$50K MORE!!
Based on historical resale just wait 24 months and pick up one coming off lease for around $70K.

Are you saying anyone with a Dr. in front of their name can't drive?
I beg to differ as I am in NJ for a PCA race week-end as Irene is coming in.....

Why don't you just become a pro race car driver since you seem to mention how great you are in practically every post you make?

I was wondering how long it would take for you to catch that

I will say thet I've instructed a number of "professionals" who have the money to buy the car but need to stick with their day jobs.

The painful reality is far too many of the people who can afford a high end sports car really aren't very talented drivers.

OTOH, I raced offshore with a dentist who was one of the most talented and gracious persons I have ever met so generalizations aren't really fair.

I couldn't agree with you more about people with expensive cars and lack of talent......

I raced one in my '06 SRT8 from a roll and it wasn't even close, he pulled away from me easily. I know the WK1 suffered from heat soak, apparently the Cayenne didn't.
