Maybe I'm weird, but I think I would be perfectly satisfied with my E36 M3 as my "fun car" in combination with a Golf as my "practical daily" for the rest of my life. If I decided to pare down to just one car, a mildly tuned 4-door Golf R would probably keep me happy for a long time.
However, I was thinking last night how nice it would be to be a member of one of those exotic car clubs. I don't aspire to own a classic Jaguar or Porsche 356 in my lifetime, as I prefer to live simply, but I'd love to have occasional access to something truly special. Being able to rent a classic Porsche for a weekend getaway with the girlfriend/spouse every now and then would make for some great experiences/memories.
What car would end the constant car fever for you?
That assumes that one would want to end the car fever.
And in order to do that two things would have to happen. 1) I would have to stop liking cars, and 2) new cars would have to stop being made so there would be nothing I haven't already seen that would tempt me into wanting it.
Fact is, I like too many cars to narrow it down to just one and done. If I were wealthy I'd be like Leno in collecting cars and still liking new and old cars.
I love cars, but the problem is they are like schroedinger's hobby. They're always in a quantum superstate of being both awesome and a huge waste of time and money... until observation momentarily forces them into one state or another.
I don't think there's one car that would cure my car fever. Because the desire for the car is merely a symptom. The only real cure, IMO, is the car and the ability to drive it. The fact that most of us here (i think) are cooped up in a desk job 9-5 or longer, then some of us have family commitments after work, we hardly have time to drive our cars. At least that's the case for me. I would just love to have a week to drive around the country in my GTI (I seriously envy those recent road trip threads we've been seeing).
but since the OP's asking about the car,
give me a porsche 959, 911 GT3 RS (any version), or NSX-R and I'll have a smile beaming ear to ear
its called 'the sickness' in my family.
THinking about what car to get next is the preferred way to pass my commuting time.
im still going through a bucket list which i expected to churn through something every 2 years.
2 of the cars have really been great and have stuck around alot longer than i would have thought
a gt3 rs4.0 or f360/f430 would fill the toy category, but imagine it would get dull over time (just a lot longer than a camry).
I know it's no exotic but this car is almost as close to perfect for me as possible.
I've wanted one since I was 12, bought 2 at fifteen to get 1 ready for when I got my license but many circumstances beyond my control forced it to go back to a dream rather than becoming reality. Still lusting, looking, saving and planning.
A 356, classic 911, Ferrari 328, or classic BMW would also work if the option were there.
