I would think that one "practical" car and one "sports" car is better than a "practical sports car", which dosen't really make sense.
Was the M a coupe or Roadster?

uh.. dude.. there is NO list. You either have an allocation or you don't. BTW, you drove the wrong car... just ask drex, world of a difference between a 997S and a regular 997... and of course if you get a gt3. BLine has a turbo and OldGuy has a 997 GT3 and they can chime in... and btw.. 160K for a turbo??? even if it had ceramics, that's way overpriced.

I drove a carrera and honestly didnt feel better then my 335 and didnt feel faster either.
they had a turbo but , couldnt drive it and it was specked out to $160k, the dude that ordered it backed out and they kept his $10k deposit so anyone interested can get $10k off, good deal I guessm if you like all the crazy options he put on it.
I guess I need a run in a Turbo or gt3 anyone around me have one?

What do you mean there is no list? I could have put a deposit dwn and gotten one, that is what I meant, maybe the guy lied.
What I drove was the 911 carrera s. I thought it was lacking. I am sorry if I offend anyone, but I drove a porsche about 15 years ago and didnt like it. I drove this one and walked away with the same feeling.
Maybe the turbo or gt would be different, but as of now I would not buy one, I dont think.

~500 GT2's worldwide. All spoken for at this point. The guy is lying. Some dealers are not even getting 1 and no offense, guys who call it "911 carrera" are well not porsche guys.. It's a 997S. BTW, these cars are never about straight line speed. It's about how easily you can rotate car around and get on the power early.

ok the 997s, my bad, and like I said I am not a porsche guy, but I was willing to change that. I know they are not about straight line speed, but like I said it just didnt do it for me. I think that there are jsut some other cars I would pic before a porsche, now that I have driven one. of course, I didnt drive the Turbo which is really the best looking one imo, well and the gt2(which I guess I couldnt get) and the gt3.
and that turbo they had for $160k msrp, is way to much money I think, but agian what do I know, other then I could get into Italy with that.well maybe.

There is a dealer here in the Houston area with at least 8 or more ///M5's on the lot. I remember when you would never see a ///M5 sitting outside on the ramp. They have at least 4 of them sitting outside. IMO that's a bad sign. As everyone else has stated, sales are slow. If you get one, make it a lease. Cause you're gonna take it in the shorts when you try to unload it.....Phil

M5 is 2% over invoice at my dealer. I am sure you can negotiate even more. I have decided not to be 1st year M3 guinea pig.
