the answers to these questions also will impact you in regards to taxes, insurance, license, inspections. Im sure there are a few other things that you may need to consider as well.
Hope this helps a little.
Ok.. so if I re-locate, it would be thru a us based company. I am not sure they would cover the car though as most people just sell theirs.
To take into consideration, I am actually a German National and I would proably register the car under EU Laws etc..
The car itself is arriving this December and of course, build in Germany but sold to US and with US specs.
Oh, an non military.. relocation.. just a regular high tech industry job
My re-location is not for a good long while.. but it is definitely going to happen.
After custom ordering my car and spending so much money, I want to take it with me. Taking Depreciation etc into account, It would not be worth it to sell the car for at least another 7 years.
Plus, if I take this to Germany, the value goes up a great deal. I build the same car in the German Porsche configurator and the price is much, much higher.
