    It's true it would attract attention. I had a flashy car once and did experience that. It was like a magnet for cops.

    "Get by with a lot more" of what though? Do you mean like driving a souped up Honda Civic?

    Not worth the money sure but not cool? Not aesthetically appealing? Seriously?

    Well the assumption is that if you are an ENFP then you are probably an Enneagram 7. Also, if you are on this forum and you are an SFP, you are probably an ISFP and the ISFP wouldn’t want to make you feel stupid so they would just look at you and say nothing (meaning no).

    I still can't get over how amazing it is to have a car with 4 wheel drive. The rear camera, front and back collision sensors, the blind spot detection system and the fact that it stops automatically if you are going to hit a car in front of you (if you're going 20 or under) does make you feel pretty safe. It feels very sure footed on the road. That's the best way I can describe it.

    So, my complete answer to the Ferrari question is dependent upon the answer 'yes' to three more ifs: if we could reasonably afford it, if it wouldn't compromise our retirement and if it was a dream car for my husband, then yes, yes I would buy it.

    Probably a used one though.

    That's a good question.

    The definition "afford" would be that you:
    1. Have enough money that you don't need to worry about it (and you could easily buy a new one) or
    2. You have enough already to comfortably retire (and you could easily buy a used one)

    It's probably a pretty low number but 2 years, for the sake of argument.

    I don't know how much leg room a Ferrari has. Football players drive them though so I imagine there is some. The 911 has more leg room than any car I have every driven and that is a sports car.

    Ask your average male kid if they would rather have a Ferrari or a chauffer when they grow up. In every man, there is a little boy but as they get old, they decide they don't want a Ferrari because it is not practical. It is much more practical to buy a big house that you don't need because real estate always goes up.

    I don't want a driver. Another person to smile at and make eye contact with? Exhausting.

    If I had enough money, I'd buy all of them so that nobody else could have one.

    Yeah, my subjective definitions of such concepts don't encompass Ferraris; I'm probably a minority in this.. my own weirdo minority.

    Yeah, something like that. If cops are anything like truck drivers, they judge people based on their cars. If you stand out or you fall into one of the 'jerk' stereotypes, it's going to get negative attention.

    Did I imagine the housing bubble?

    But, I *am* boring. I've never been anything but boring, even as a teenager and I've never been male. And, honestly, I'd rather be boring than bored. I was never thrilled about driving and I would much rather read or play with my laptop than drive. Until self-driving cars are available, drivers are the best option. And FWIW, my husband would love a self-driving car. I'd buy him one in a heartbeat if I was loaded and there were good ones available.

    In the meantime, if I want ed to gratuitously waste money, I'd have someone build me my very own Bag End or some such nerdy nonsense.

    Ask him if he had all the money he needed if he would want a Ferrari - not as a practical thing - but to have fun driving and maybe to look at. Maybe after getting the self driving car.

    i would too - at a heart bit.

    really, the freedom a car gives me (going anywhere on my own schedule) with the freedom public transport gives me (work/study/play on my laptop) in one? sign me up.

    can driving be fun at times? ofcourse, on the highway or in the middle of the night.... but i don't think i ever thought that while being stuck in traffic on an average day, and even if it wasn't the case: i prefer playing a good action-adventure RPG or RTS over any racing game.

    ooo! if i am that rich in this scenario, can i get a self-driving landyacht? i want one of those!

    edit: also, drinking while being self-driven-car driven... legal?
