Hello from NY


Recommended Posts

I am a new member from NY and just put down a deposit for an Emira.  The car is actually for my wife but I am just as excited about it.  I currently own a 981 GT4 w/ lot of drivetrain mods (4.5L, short ratio, LSD, etc.) which I use as a weekend and track car.  My wife recently caught the track bug as well and we have been looking for something to take her to the next level.  She prefers DCT for track therefore we are excited to get the I4 DCT version.  She currently tracks and daily drives a C43 so the AMG link is a nice bonus!  The dealer I am using has a lot of deposits already but tells me we are the very first for the AMG spec.  I have a feeling the V6 will be much more popular in the US at least.  Theoretically this could help us get an earlier allocation but we will see.  As a GT4 driver, I totally get the 6 cyl manual desire but that AMG motor is pretty darn cool for a I4.   It will be a nice compliment to our collection.

Here is a photo of my car at The Glen for fun...

Welcome to TYFL @sonorous (Owen) :welcome:

Awesome! Most people on here seem to be leaning toward the V6 manual. Great to see someone committed to the I4 model. (Except @Evotion who is buying both.)

Any questions or issues with using the forums, feel free to ask one of us mods. We're here to help. :)

All we know is that when they stop making this, we will be properly, properly sad.Jeremy Clarkson on the Esprit.

Opinions are like armpits. Everyone has them, some just stink more than others.

Hi and welcome! Nice Porsche, hope you're pleasantly surprised by the dynamics of the Emira, V6 or I4 but you're right, the AMG engine is quite something and I'm looking forward to getting a drive of it at some point.
