    That would be my choice too. IMHO, the perfect balance of luxury, power, practicality and style. Plus have you seen the instrrument panel lit up on that thing! I would pay the 100K just for that alone!

    Supertuned hypercars with 4 figure BHPs are fine in moderation, but if you have to pick just one car then I wouldn't like to be sitting in traffic in one every day!

    BORIS WTF?? we are talking about car like the Aston Martin DB9 (one of the finest looking cars ever built), McLaren F1 (arguably the best supercar car ever built) etc etc and that is what you come up with! A couple of Toyotas, a bimmer and a Delorean! You need take a brake from programming, i think you are going potty

    I concur. If you go to the POrsche site, you can get the walpapers in higher resolutions. I posted the 800x600 versions here.

    Nah. Makes me laugh, actually.... The owner was obviously a dumbass to destroy a half-million dollar supercar. It looks like they tried to pull a DoH-style jump and trashed the rear suspension or somesuch....
