    Default Spotted - Porsche 918 Spyder!

    Hope it's cool if I post a thread of these 2 beauties I saw down in Scottsdale a couple weeks ago. Not Calgary but I couldn't not share this!

    Porsche 918 Spyder and Gemballa Mirage GT

    918!



    Sorry for the cell phone pics but I don't normally travel with my SLR anymore.

    There is also a beautiful voodoo blue 918 in the same area. I saw it out at a show and shine at Mcdonald's in Scottsdale, but do not have any of my own pics on this computer. I also had the chance to hear the Mirage GT ripping it around Pebble Beach during the Concours d'elegance. I have never heard a better sound in my life, just a fantastic car.

    That McDonald's show n shine. Great show and worth going to if you're down there. Get to see a whole lot of different cars compared to Calgary.

    Interesting to see the older cars and how the A/C was all plumbed in and done. You don't see that up here with A/C being very expensive when it first came out.

    I had seen a photo of the voodoo blue one on instagram the day I was heading down and was really hoping to see it around. I guess having to settle for the Black Spyder was ok!

    Didn't get to hit up the show and shine but I will have to look out for it next year when I am down there!

    Nice spot! I know it's technically not a Carrera GT anymore, but Carrera GTs are still one of my favourite supercars.

    That show n' shine is definitely worth hitting up, such a variety of cool cars. I was down at the start of January and they had a Barrett Jackson trailer setup with an original Cobra sitting beside it. The only thing that got annoying was the 1000000 Corvettes haha, they definitely got redundant.

    Yes... and no..

    Despite a name derived from the French word for ‘illusion’, the GEMBALLA MIRAGE GT is very real, and is a limited edition series of 25 very special cars based on the legendary Porsche Carrera GT. Unique and desirable, each MIRAGE GT is made specifically for its owner, and sets aesthetic, aerodynamic and technical standards that approach perfection.

    The benefit of masks is not known at this time. But we do know it is some non-trivial amount more than zero.

    We also know that the cost of mask use is, essentially, zero.

    So the cost:benefit of mask use is approaching infinity. I'll take that every time. And every time I see someone without a mask, I think they are stupid.

    Scottsdale is such a fun place... We have a house down in San Tan Valley. Drove down to Scottsdale over Christmas, and hol-e-crap theres some intense stuff in the automalls there. So many Royces...

    Stopped in at Nissan to look at a 2014 GTR track package they had. Guy offered me 20k off within 2 minutes of talking. And Bentley had a bunch of Conti's with 30-50k off... Crazy.
