Might as well get a luxury sedan. Just make sure you get the lighter interior color and tint the hell out of it. Chrysler 300 with the cream leather might be nice. Or a used Benzo E class.
So a Corvette kinda makes sense down here, especially a nice 3LT with the vented seats, but it is a little unwieldy to drive in tight parking lots and stuff.
I was mainly laughing at the guy with the GT3 RS, or whomever is frequenting the Lamborghini shop we passed. Those cars literally exist as penis extensions down here, nowhere to drive them except freeway pulls.
Side note: I touched 100 in my Caravan today on 75.
Being frugal, I'd likely get a luxury car, preferably a Lexus LS, V8, RWD, good Michelin tires. Light color interior and exterior. Great Florida cruiser.
For something a bit more fun, Charger 392 Widebody in Florida White of course.
As someone who moved to Miami 15 years ago and has owned and driven all kinds of cars here, the answer is Wrangler soft top. Five months in and it is the first vehicle that I'm not constantly playing the "what car to replace this if it was totaled tomorrow" game. BTW having a soft top Jeep is an excellent incentive not to leave crap in your car at night. If you don't like the sun--drive at night (or seriously figure out why you are living here).
The other correct answer is anything expensive and impractical. I've seen a Veyron at a parking meter on Miami Beach and Lamborghinis (i.e. more than one in the same day) at the public school drop off line.
I'm originally from Central Florida so I've thought about this considerably. Traffic has grown immensely and there are absolute lunatics on the road. The absolute best car on the road under $100k is a Model X. Reasons:
It's hot AF. So always having an ice cold car and never waiting for it to cool down is so money. You can even cool it inside your hot garage. It cools via the app or via heat protection feature which does not allow it to go past 100 degrees.
Safest SUV you can buy when some crackhead rams into you on I-4.
Bumper to bumper traffic is no joke so get you some Autopilot to help remove some stress.
AWD for mega heavy downpours or sandy shenigans.
Electricity is cheap in FL so your weekly fuel bill is a rounding error in your budget.
It's fast enough to hustle yourself away fro nearly everyone on the road discreetly.
Seats 7 with large amounts of storage and can still pull a small center console the short distance to the marina.
