Also have you heard a refreshed V8 Vantage with an exhaust?
Wow. Like I said, i certainly understand the appeal I'm just a Porsche whore at heart, the first clear memory I have of a car involved holding tools for my grandfather when he'd work on his 911s.

It was a hell of a lot of fun to drive, don't get me wrong, but I just don't know if I would want one anymore. Maybe having one that I customized to the way I wanted things and something that wasn't a rental might be better. Gear changes felt slow and the car didn't seemed as "refined" as I was hoping for. Granted, my GT-R probably skews my view on some of those things.
Lol those damn GT-Rs spoil people, so much performance and competence for the money. IMO for 'refinement' it's the Germans who do it best. Italian cars will always shoot for flare and drama over refinement. While Hanz is studying the acoustic properties of a door chime in Germany, Francisco is likely figuring out how to add more flare to a fender. Different priorities I bet the 458 absolutely screams up top though..
