For Example, I consider the new Hyundai Sonata an Exotic :):) :wink: BUT someone like [MENTION=2404]Vortex[/MENTION] considers it an Uber Exotic, above the realm of Saleen, Ferrari, McLaren , Bugatti etc.

You can get a 996/997 TT for less than that and those are pretty exotic to me as well as a Hennessey Viper or a Lingenfelter Vette??

For the sake of keeping arguements from occurring since it's a touchy subject

over 100k
Mostly foreign
Limited production numbers
Not common

thoughts?

Original GTR (Nissan) was less than $100K , limited production , NOT too common and is definitely in ExotiCar performance territory.

"There are a variety of definitions and beliefs of what an exotic car is.Some think that it's solely based upon how much a car costs, how the doors open, the country of origin, customization or personalization, performance figures, or other various aspects of a particular car.In some respects it is all of these characteristics, and yet sometimes it is none of them. Probably the best and most common way to think about what an exotic car is can be boiled down to one simple statement. Do you see one every day? Or, simply put, are you likely to see one in a traffic jam, parking lot, or during a daily commute? If the answer is no, then it's probably close to being exotic. But, there's more... An exotic car is also likely to be limited production, scarce, personalized or created in an unusual way, perhaps incorporates unusual materials in its components, has an unusual appearance or design, and is generally not intended for a large market audience of buyers. Some examples of exotic cars include marquees such as Ferrari, Lamborghini, Aston Martin, Bentley, Lotus, Bugatti, McLaren, Rossion, Spyker, Pagani, Maserati, etc., as well as supercars such as a Carrera GT, Saleen S7, Koenigsegg, Mercedes SLR, and also very limited production or boutique versions of a car such as a Dodge Viper, Acura NSX, or a Corvette ZR1, and more. Examples of cars that areNOT exotic include the Porsche Boxster, BMW M3, basic Chevy Corvette, basic Porsche 911, Mercedes SLK, Honda Civic, Toyota Camry, Lexus SC, and/or other ‘mass produced’ types of cars.Although these are all great automobiles, and many individuals or groups/clubs may be enthusiasts of them, they are usually not within the general population's first thoughts when an exotic car comes to mind."

In fairness, M3s are mass produced , unlike most AMGs that are in limited numbers. I'd define exotic as being more about performance than just exclusivity as we'd have to define an exotic as a Yugo (very very rare), a Michael J Fox era DMC-12, GEO Metro XFi or the Cosworth Vega from the mid-70s. I have had several AMGs one of which they imported less than 5 in my color and the other where they had a total of 100 come in. I'd call them exotic as far as rare, BUT not as performance. I'd leave that to most Ferraris, Lambos etc. Some guys think an IS-F or RC-F is exotic,. BUT is it really?? Rare yes, exotic, NO!! I see at least 5 of them on my daily commute, 3 in silver and 2 in black.

" Or, simply put, are you likely to see one in a traffic jam, parking lot, or during a daily commute? If the answer is no, then it's probably close to being exotic."

My Mazda when I had it was exotic for the america's... not so much over in Japan where it was mass produced... I wouldn't consider it exotic per say though... what about JDM's or other limited USA produced car? What about home build kit cars that are unique? What about model T's and A's that are mostly original or heavily modded... I could go on and on... I would consider my friends Gallardo an exotic... but IMO I also consider it mass produced... unless it's one of the rare limited production versions like the trofeo...

X2.

We have quite a few groups that are dead with no participation. Ideally a more broad group would be better.

I got one of the last Mazda 3's that were made in Japan. From ~2014 forward they all were to be made in Mexico.

Yeah hmmm... that is true. We have a fair number of basically dead groups.

We do have a car section here on the forums already. Would that be the easiest route to go? What would be the main benefit to create a private social group for it? Just curious.

I picture a place for owners and dreamers to discuss new models, their own personal experiences good and bad, share pictures, talk about exotic maintence, known problems, discussion how to buy one online, how to get approved for an exotic loan, exotic leases, getting good insurance policies, car shows, exotic rallies and ect

not to mention its great to meet other owners... It's always fun to roll with a bunch of cars
