I think we need to define Exotics

Are they defined by price or by the people who own them?
If by price at what price point does it become Ecotics?

I tend to think any car over 1 mil is an exotic so not all Ferrari, Lambo's, or McLaren's are exotics
and as to who own them if they a bottle of Grey Poupon in the glove box they are Exotics.

This one gets driven like they should. Shows up to a lot of the local events and on one drive he and I were bantering back and forth. I wanted him in front of me so I could hear his car, he and his passenger wanted to drive behind me so they could hear mine. Sadly, he stayed behind.

If I had unlimited funds, one of these would be in my garage.

Damn that yellow is gorgeous. I love that primal shriek they make too. Nothing street legal sounds like that, not even an Enzo. My buddy has a guards red over tan one. He has offered to let me drive it, but I have so far declined. Too much exposure if I fuck up, and from what I hear of that "on/off" clutch, I could likely get in bad trouble real quick.

My friend's GT. I'm trying to work out a swap for my 914.

914's are soaring in value, so I expect to have the GT in my garage soon.

Always loved the GT too. Never got to drive one, but my dealer did let me start and rev one in the showroom. Pure sex!

the 959 vs the CGT - it would be a Hobson's choice for me.
