    Tesla burned down 4 (or is it 3) out of 25,000 cars so far. 2014 GT3 burnt down like 90% of total productions so far

    The fires are probably due to the GT3 being mad at its maker for deleting the manual gearbox . . .

    2006 Porsche 997 Carerra Coupe 6-MT - daily driver
    1992 Honda (Acura) NSX 5-MT - classic investment I couldn't resist and occasionally drive
    2004 Honda S2000 AP2 6-MT - track day car
    2006 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IX MR 6-MT - when I need a backseat, 4-doors, or a real trunk, and still want to haul ass . . .
