Hahaha, what do the M5 and the Saturn V have in common? Both German rocketships will bankrupt your ass before you're done driving them.

Just watch.... in a few years we're going to see E60 M5's getting aftermarket seats when their fancy "active bolsters" break in the prone position and make it impossible for the driver to use the car.

Sometimes less is more. @Anthony knows what I am talking about.

How exactly is the Saturn V a German rocketship? It was designed, built, and funded entirely in the USA.

I'm most interested in the brz limited though so we'll see. ..
I got my 14 premium at Manchester in NH. They have 2 limited models in selling for 25.4k.... I didn't believe what I got mine for but maybe this will help convince you to get one. LOL

Well... Development was led by German scientists (von Braun and Rudolph) who led the Nazi rocket programs, and based partly on German designs develops during WWII.

Sure, development was led by German scientists, but to say it was based on German designs from WWII is really stretching it. In the 1940s, not enough was known about liquid rocketry to come up with a design for a rocket that size, so it really couldn't have been based on any German concept or design more complicated than "let's make an enormous rocket".

I put off test driving my Porsche because I knew it would be over. That and the longer I waited my down payment fund would keep on growing. That and waiting for some small investments to mature.

Remember weren't specific on what type of car you wanted to test drive. I tell you I felt so stupid for spending that type of money on the car.

Everyone needs some Porsche in their life. If I didn't get to drive other peoples' on a pretty regular basis, I'd probably have to do something stupid with my money too.

'least she is paid off, only took me five months to do it.

But you just can't help but have that feeling of I can buy another house with this money.

How many houses do you need to own? But I still felt stupid. And the European trip to pick it up was a blast.

Previous Car - 08 RX-8 GT
Prior to that - E36 M3

BRZ Limited = Combo. It's delicious.
