Tires 2'000.00 (Every 4 years at a cost of 8'000.00)
Total 11'900.00
Sorry, but 8000 CHF for tires? Supercar sizes (around the 300-35-20 mark) are not more expensive than 500 a pop online, and Pirelli P Zero can go under 300 even.

Where in the hell do you pay 2000CHF/tire? What kind of tire are you buying and what lucky man is charging you installation?

You are right, I may have overshot a bit on the tires (not actually changed them yet) but if we assume the rims also need to be fixed or replaced (curb dents etc.) then it can easily go over CHF 8'000.00. Just the tires is a lot less expensive.

Re: Sports car - Multi owner approach

Whooo! The post became quite popular!

Actually you all touched all the points I had on mind.

I do agree COMPLETELY that to make it reasonable profitable, the plan must be properly executed.

How new customers are enrolled? Using which financial figure? Shares on a business (quite unpractical), what to do when a new car is bought? Capital increase with new shares to new owners?

They should be owners, however the real added value is when the business is managing the car itself without any complications to the owners/users (eg: bringing the car to the service, a scratch happened and must be brought to the paint shop). So there is a management fee for every car depending on the yearly use, car...

Questions like what happen if any of the co-owners crashes a car? Or, what if someone wants to leave? Does he/she sell the share of the car to the others or bringing someone in to replace him as co-owner??

I will surely have a look to those clubs you've mentioned there....

Re: Sports car - Multi owner approach

People who want or can afford such cars usualy just buy them for their own use here, otherwise they can rent them for an ocasional weekend.

I don't think the concept would work here, there are plenty of up market models avaialbe here, and money or leasing deals for people to buy them for themsleves, complete with what ever options and the chance to use it whenever they want.


Must have been useful having a convertible last few days here.....

I could have had the roof off on Saturday when I was out and about in it - but the boot was being used

By mid-morning the roads were mostly dry - the troublesome bits were on the Pfannenstiel where there were a number of streams coming across the road. After the first one inducing a fair bit of tail out action I turned into a "dog on a slippery floor" when it came to driving through them
