I just took home my dream car, a 2020 GT4. I think I have read every review and watched every YouTube video ever produced on this car. I am a motorcyclist and always thought this car would be as close to riding a motorcycle as I could get with 4 wheels. I was not disappointed. The handling and road feel this car provides is amazing. Having a naturally aspirated manual car was my goal and so happy to have found one.

I look forward to learning more about the car and all of the members' experiences with their cars. Thank you. -Dan

PS: My car did not come with Apple Car Play. I am hoping there is a reasonable solution to adding/installing car play and would really appreciate any suggestions or guidance.

I was a motorcyclist (Ducati, BMW and Triumph) but I'm getting too old to ride. 😐
Enjoy your new ride!

Thank you! I currently have a BMW s1000R and a Triumph Street Triple. I've always said I would choose to ride a motorcycle over a car...but now Im not so sure about that anymore. Love this car!

Gentian Blue is a great color on any 718, but your GB GT4 will be legendary. Glad to have you aboard!

Only car with open top can be close to bikes. ;)

As a biker myself , I need the breeze, sudden temperature changes , smells, visibility and the wind noise with open top to have the feeling closer.:giggle:

I believe the 718 Spyder is the closest one to a bike. 😉

(It does not take from the greatness of the GT4 btw) :cool:

I'm not a fan of the open top, but I can totally see your point.

I grew up in two wheels and always thought I'd try to take my bike to the nursing home with me as an old man. After traffic returned post pandemic I was thinking about riding less as the roads became more dangerous. Weeks after talking about that I got into a wreck with a distracted driver. Sold my bikes and now my BGTS 4.0 MT is my riding surrogate. It's hard to miss riding with wheels like these -- congrats on yours!

That is an awesome car, congrats! Must be nice to get your car and immediately be driving it like it was meant to be driven! (I’m still breaking mine in 😅)
Thank you South Bay. I agree that its nice to be able to buy a car immediatly drive it without limitations. However, I have to have hope/confidence that the previous owner did follow the break in guidelines. I was waiting for an allocation to be able to build my car exactly the way I wanted it, but have lost confidence in getting an allocation before they potentially change the engine. I wanted to have a naturally aspirated manual transmission GT4 and since I found one that was almost the build I wanted, it made sense to buy it.

You online name is South Bay, are you from the Manhattan Beach area? I love the South Bay. I had stored a motorcycle on Aviation and Rosecrans for the past 15 years.
