They found out today and if I hadn't had bought it, it would have been gone in 30 seconds tomorrow.


It should be here in the second week of October. Not as expensive as the Porsche 911 but at 47,000 it's a good chunk of change!!!


Welcome to having a car payment for a very long time!

I am very happy to be getting a new truck!

GET WELL MAYOR!!!

Did you pay MSRP, or did they ding you for a premium?

Congrats on the new truck.

Yeah, I got schooled at the Porsche dealer. Way over my head. But what a nice car for those lucky enough to have one. Guy told me they had 30 in the service lot, that were totally flooded. Totally lost all of them. Worse part is, if one of those cars was yours, you can’t get a replacement, none available.

Porsche Taycan, 0 to 60 in 2.6 seconds. Faster than a 3 million dollar Bugotti.

I would post a picture but it would be my last post for a while .
The VMA dress was invisible. The red one at the Met Gala was much less revealing. She is quite beautiful, lovely with the long black hair.

Not exactly Megan Fox's first skimpy outfit though but I doubt if that has gotten old yet.

Funny when you mention car payments. The Porsche guy told me he could put me in the 3 year old 911 for $1500 a month for 72 months!!! With a bit of money down of course. Salesman speak in terms of 60 an 72 month finance these days. What ever happened to the 36 month finance? I was taught never finance more than 3 years since their will be a point that you will owe more than the car is worth. Plus the streched out interest payments. Crazy world we live in these days.

Can you rent one? Or rent any other supercars?

Living with a supercar has it's drawbacks. I like driving more than owning.

I thought the Chiron was a 2.4/2.3 second 0-60 car. Add to that another 100mph to the top speed and I'd expect the Bugatti to give up a 1/0 or so on the 0-60.
I've seen Taycan 0-60 from 3-2.4 seconds quoted. Bottom Line - it's all fast with other factors to consider.
I will say a road car should have drivability and not just sheer numbers. Transitional handling and a little manners will beat raw numbers when you start living with it day to day. Dodge Viper???

My (tuned) Stinger gets under 4s 0-60, 11s 1/4, and I've had it up to 176. Cost me right around $50k - although I leased it, so $600/mo, 0-down.

Thanks dlong!

Paid total MSRP ($45,571.00)

I leased it (36 months) and got a good buy out price at the end of the lease. It is a brand new release from Toyota this year, so not a whole lot of opportunity to look at prices anywhere else. No one has any, nor are they able to order any from Toyota. I lucked out in that a guy ordered one 3 months ago and they are mistakenly sending two. I was in the right olace at the right time.

My 2005 4-Runner's frame is completely rusted out and it will not pass inspection. They are giving me 4K for it off that MSRP!

With an additional $3500 down, I will be paying $435.00 per month.

Oh, and "flip!"
