So, I don't think there are too many car fans here, but let's try.

I saw an amazing Porsche 911 that blasted by me on the highway. It's rare in Colombia. Not so rare in the US and other places so its sort of once-in-a-timespan thing.

LOL, I seem to see Porsche 911's all the time now... quite common it seems.

Well I saw a Ferrari F430 the other day, only problem is, most of its rear was scrumpled up and it was on the back of a pick up truck xD Still look good though lol

Lol I've only been to a Ferrari dealership. In the US about a year ago. The only real "common" Porsche here is the Cayenne.

studying motorsport engineering i get to see very special cars on a daily basis. this 1's designed and built by prodrive and is what happens when you take a car and a bike then mix the 2 together:

The most exotic car I have seen around here is an Audi R8 yesterday. Was lovely though.

I also saw an Aston Martin DB9 in McDonalds :lol:

I see a Lotus Elise on my way to school everyday.

Over this year, I've also seen a few Enzo's and F430's, a Gallardo, an R8 and a lot of 911's.

One day, I'm gonna own a Ferrari and I can't wait.

While I was living in Atlanta... I saw an NMG (No More Gas) vehicle... looked and sounded like something out of the Jetsons. I saw Maseratis several times a week... and a few lambos here and there. a porsche is an everyday occurance in atlanta. i saw a viper for sale not too long ago... guess the owners couldn't afford to gas that beast up any longer...

I saw an Audi R8 at my local Circuit City a few weeks ago. It looked pretty damn sweet. I was also surprised to see such a thing at a Circuit City of all places.

I saw a really nice yellow convertible viper with side pipes awhile back. It was propbably like a 1990something. Not new but clean and sweet

If there were Vipers here, one would be driven by me already...I love those things. 500 hp is just so awesome, along with a mean body.

I live in Los Angeles.

Well I saw Bam Margera's purple lamborghini with him in it. It wasn't the coolest thing that ever happened to me but he lives around me so I guess it's cool.

One of my neighbors has a Bentley Continental GT. The guy lives in a 17,000 sq. ft. house with a 3,000 sq. ft. guest house. The thing is ridiculous compared to all of the other houses on my street.

I have seen a Bentley Flying Spur multiple times (same guy each time, same road), that car is like a four-door Continental GT. One of my neighbors owns an M5 (and like 3 Datsun 240Zs) and another owns a Carrera 4S.

My parents went to the Audi Dealership about a month ago to get our Q7 serviced and they saw an R8 being pulled into the lot. They were allowed to sit in it while the people from the dealership were sorting out stuff. My dad said that the leg room sucked (he's 6'0") and that I wouldn't be able to fit into it (I'm 6'5").

When we went to pick up the Q7, we had heard that they sold the R8 for $155,000 even though it had 1,600 miles on it and it was originally bought for $125,000. The cars are so in demand that they can charge an extra fee.

While they were sorting everything out at the Audi dealership, I took it upon myself to sit in every single Porsche in the Porsche dealership next door. There had to be 15 of them and I only fit into the Cayman and the 911. The Boxter was far too small because the seats couldn't go any further than the roof mechanism would allow. There were no Cayennes on the floor, but basically, they are glorified Touraegs. The Q7 actually has the same chassis that underpins the Touraeg and Cayenne, but it is elongated to accomadate the third row.

Anyway, I won't be buying a Porsche or R8 in my life, ever. Even if I had the chance to, I wouldn't be able to fit. The Nissan GT-R would be my best bet.

In Denver you see cool cars on a pretty regular basis. I see Lotus Elises all the time and Ferraris and Lamborghinis on the highway here and there. I don't really care about Bentleys and Porsches are so common these days I really don't pay attention to whether I see them or not.
