haha..it's actually called "Nimbus Grey"

they only had six colors to chose from( red, yellow, blue, green, shadow grey and nimbus grey) it was best looking color to chose from besides maybe the blue one.

I'd rather have Camry white but they don't offer it

I put in a reservation about a month ago. No clue when I will get mine. 2022? maybe 2023 and I am number 11 at my dealership. I think this is the best looking sports car in the last decade or so. I can think of few sports cars that I think look better.

It's not a limited-production car so they'll be making every single one they have orders for. You'll have it next year at current estimates.

Lotus nailed it on this one.

Sounds like MSRP for US First Edition is $93,900 per a local dealer my friend has a deposit with. Not sure which drivetrain or what that includes.

Interesting, didn't realize they were using a heavily detuned version of the AMG M139 at 260HP.

$93,900 for the First Edition, which comes almost fully loaded. Only options you can add is auto and two tone paint. Base model V6 msrp will be less.

Base AMG 4 cylinder starts at $74,900.

Ha, same. Figured maybe they'd unplugged a spark plug to cripple it that badly.

Canadian $119,888 for the first edition V6 which is comparable to a decently equipped Cayman 4.0. Tempting if it can hold its value compared to the Porsche.
