If you won the lottery would you keep your 86/BRZ?

No I haven’t won the lottery, but there is a $100 million dollar jackpot here tomorrow night and I often ask myself this question when buying a ticket. My answer is yes I’d keep it. I love my BRZ, the fun to drive factor, “chuckability” around corners, I think I’d miss it too much. But I’d definitely add a few cars to my collection.

FD RX-7 Spirit R or RZ.
WRX STI 22B
Porsche 911 GT3 or Cayman GT4 or both.

Goes to show how good a car it is when money doesn’t come into it, well IMO anyway. What are your thoughts?

Absolutely, but it would accelerate my current build and do a complete track car.

Definitely would add a couple of cars starting with an Alfa 4C and an Elise.

Absolutely I would keep it. I would Carbon Fiber everything, and make it as light as possible.

If I won $1 million I would still have it.
If I won a $100 million.

I would keep it. I would just have a bigger garage and more cars.

I would take my old 911 to Canepa and say, "make it new, and swap in a 993 engine and 6 speed."

Most definitely, and I'd try to dedicate time/$ to researching new stuff for this platform. I want to be an innovation expert but have 0 funding! Haha

Not sure why anybody with $100 million feels they need to modify a cheap car to try to make it what you can buy off the shelf for more money. Buy the expensive one and then modify it to even greater limits don't mess around with the cheap stuff.

I'd Likley keep it for a track toy to abuse.

I'd buy the car I've always wanted, and the newest one to match.



Then I'd winter drive one of these to flex on winter beaters.

With all that money why would you need to sell it?

From a track car perspective: I see people with more money than god show up to track days with high dollar cars. If they get hooked on the track life they eventually realize they made a HUGE mistake. Depending on their skill level they usually purchase another car like a Miata, FRS/BRZ, E36 or Corvette to replace the high dollar car on track. With that money those cars are disposable and maintenance/tires cost less than their favorite bottle of whiskey.

If I won, I would keep mine. Mainly for nostalgia reasons. I would continue to track it sometimes. But I would also quickly purchase a ELAN NP01 prototype to track as well. Along with a SLEW of janky 90s JDM cars for street use/fun.

I would totally keep it and build it. I don’t see anything wrong with liking a platform and building it to its potential. As much as I don't want to go the classic "I'm rich now let me buy a Lamborghini" route, it's hard not too lol if I had the money, I'd definitely buy things I wouldn't have been able to experience otherwise like McLaren, Ferrari etc. Maybe some classics like a Supra or RX7

If you win tomorrow, don't forget who was good to you here
