      Its a beautiful car in person. Someone wanted it real bad and was sold for $247K before taxes and fees.

      I've seen the $100K market adjustment on the i8 as well.

      If you want to be first on your block, what's money?

      I predict the government will probably do something about it soon. It has indeed gone way out of hand. $5k for an STi? Eh, I guess. $100k for ANYTHING? Calm the (asterisk-asterisk-asterisk-asterisk) down!!

      The gentlemen at the local dealership told me the first i8 they received months ago went for more than 100% markup (over $300k).

      i didn't realize there was that much demand. It's a neat car, but there are a lot of different ways i would spend that kind of money for automotive pleasure.
      signatures are annoying, right?

      If you can pay a $100k markup on a car, $100k is probably nothing to you. Betting the purchaser has multiple $100-300k cars in their garage already.

      Honestly... if I wanted my rich man's eco-friendly fix, I would just buy a Tesla before an i8. Tesla is checking all the boxes in terms of building up an electric vehicle infrastructure, keeping the car's software flexible and upgradeable, and covering anything and everything with their cars because they want the company to take off. The Model S P85D is a dual electric motor AWD with nearly 700 combined HP, a range of 253 miles, and an acceleration (for it being massively heavy) of 3.2 seconds and it's $98,170 (according to their website ) after the $7500 federal tax credit.

      Am I making a bad comparison here? I'm not even sure what category the i8 is. Sporty, luxurious hybrid coupe? Definitely a beautiful car and might be something I'd consider if I was throwing money at the wind.

      I really don't know much about the i8 other than it's hood caused quite a stir on the forums.

      Actually, it's very hard to find a rich fool. This car is worth it as of now for the fact that it's exclusive. Ten years down the line, they will be a dime a dozen and depreciate like the charge on it's batteries. But if i had the money, i drive the hell out of one just for the gawks.

      The Tesla is a boring sedan compared to the futuristic i8. I see the appeal for people with the means to pick one up.

      Well, one is a sedan and looks like a sedan. The other is a sports coupe with ****ing awesome doors. So yeah, kind of.
