    Obviously this would need to be a P85. Needs to be in-hand now or very soon; some limited mileage is acceptable. My preference is Silver / Black interior, loaded. Timing is for holiday delivery to Texas. Will wire escrow and fly-and-buy in person or other safe arrangement for us both.

    Congrats to all owners; great community.

    EDIT 12/7/2012: PURCHASE DONE - NO LONGER RESPONDING TO OFFERS.

    Oh so tempting! Aside from members here, I do believe a few had shown up on eBay (I remember the black one)

    150k should work out. I had some cars offered for that amount but refused to buy.

    Prices will drop but it might take some more weeks....

    hope to catch one for 125k....should work as soon as 1000, 2000, etc cars have been delivered

    Thanks FLXX - I agree this is short term bump but have desire to chase in my case. I'll be taking $50k depreciation first 6 months at this level :scared: [shakes fist at motor trend!!]

    If you've got the $5k "comfortably liquid", consider putting down your reservation now. You might change your mind about the urgency of delivery once you've done that. ;)

    all - I have located a white vehicle with some perks and will commit to it soon. I heard from a few of you, but no silver. I guess that sort of makes sense to me from a pioneering user group - why would you pick default color...

    If you do have a silver w/black interior it may be worth contacting me for a short while - otherwise thanks all for your help! I hope to be back as a legit owner :)

    Ah, to have money to blow like that :). Though if I had my car by the deadline, I would have been willing to sell at that price, take the money and get back at the end of the line again.
