Likely mid-life crisis contenders:
-S2000 in yellow pearl
-BMW M2 in Long Beach blue
-Porsche 718 Cayman
-Supra 3.0 (only if a manual tranny drops)

if I had a huge garage:
-‘87-91 Mercedes 560SEL black/black
-‘03 BMW M roadster in Laguna Seca blue
-‘92 Ford F-350 in green

I don’t really fantasize about cars I know I’ll never be able to afford. I’d love to rent a McLaren one day for a track day.

LS6 has 450 hp ( gross horsepower) my friend had a LS 5 360 HP
M22 4 speed we were driving around in his 1970 chevelle SS fully restored when a 9th gen civic SI coupe was pulling away from us with ease don’t know if it was tuned but it gave the chevelle a hard time but if he had a LS6 than it wouldn’t been a problem
My point was that the cowl induction flaps were the coolest thing back then. Now you've got wanting to go hunting old muscle cars while on Phearable Map 3!

Not counting any super/hypercars, mine are:

- Mercedes AMG C63 Black Series
- BMW M5 F10 generation
- Audi RS3

Supercar is the NC1 Acura NSX.

Childhood dream car is a C6 Corvette Z06. I thought about one as a second car and I might be able to pull it off in a few years now that I have my Mazda.

Check out Rich Rebuilds on youtube- might cure you of that urge. Mind you- his was an early model but there is one episode where his ex-tesla technician employee gives a tour of that model. Bottom line they are great under warranty but after that...

Any new McLaren would be my dream car. It obviously would not be for commuting but if required to do so then without doubt an LC500.
I own Model S and I know that Teslas might be fragile... but don't trust anything you see on the internet. Giving a tour and owning totalled Teslas, like he does, kind of a different cases. He got his tesla bonuses suspended and he got mad and disappointed, I don't blame him and I watch his EV builds, but most vloggers/tesla youtubers overreact and start blaming Tesla if they get something negative towards them... My brother-in-law's Model X 75D is a 200 mile range egg... he has over 150k miles on it and it is still reliable and had no major issues :) So yeah, I still think Tesla is a great car to own if you want sporty, fast and roomy vehicle :)

One car? Latest S4 or M3 with manual transmission
Two cars? 911 or Miata, and a E class

Dream cars are pretty short in no particular order although the GT40 is the top. It’s still my favorite car until this day. I was so happy Hollywood finally made a good movie about it in all its glory...

Ford GT40 Race Car

1955-57 Porsche Speedster

and a childhood Favorite,

Ferrari F-40

And to round out the list,

AC Shelby Cobra MKI

Honorably Mention:
Ford Escort Cosworth Rally Car A-spec

Just "Back (me) to the Future" and I'd take my '68 RoadRunner 383 with its 727 auto. Great cruiser and straight-line family car. Marginal handling but what fun. Almost as quick as our Si.

Not really a “dream car “ but I always thought this car would be cool to own as a weekend or cruiser car and they were pretty quick to
A 1996 Volvo 850 R wagon and it has to be A red wagon

Back in 1984 I was 16 years old and i always thought the Nissan ( still at that time people kept calling them Datsun) 300 ZX was a cool looking car and seeing them brand new in the showrooms now looking at them with the basic straight line design of the eighties and that futuristic interior also from the eighties it’s still a cool looking car today

THe Nissan is on the top of the list for me. My first toy car was the exact same one dressed up as a police vehicle. The lines on the car flow so nice! And the flip-up headlights are the bomb!
