Anyone here saved up for a while for a super car like a Lambo? Curious how long it took / what did you have in savings prior before feeling comfortable? Currently save about 80% of my salary and it seems I could afford one around 45 while being on track for early retirement

I’d like to clarify- saving all that $ wouldn’t mean I’m car poor, it basically means I’d meet my early retirement goals but also have about 450k aside to cover the cost of the car + maintenance

How old are you? I am just guessing, in 10-15 years, these cars are not likely to be in the 450k price range. They are in that price range now with purchase and maintenance, so you can expect it to get significantly higher

I don’t know how old you are but if people keep voting for failed progressive policies - the days of fun supercars with naturally aspirated or turbocharged V8s or V10s are limited. I say we have 10-15 years of ICE left unless Porsche develops that fuel.

Just do it. Get one, rev it up and down Ocean Drive, the Strip, Beverly Hills or wherever, and sell it within a year. You don’t lose too much money by doing that

Not much. You can’t just go to a dealership and leave with a Ferrari (without paying a massive premium)

You go hard
