I was sadly one of the victims related to the Shiraaz/Champion Porsche fall out but I must admit, they stepped up and made things right for me. In conclusion to that chapter, I'm glad its over and I'm happy with the outcome. I hope all of the other victims have the same conclusion to report.
So to come full circle with this story, early 2018, I finally broke down and decided to build a new garage for my car to be delivered late 2018, early 2019. Design started in March, 2018, construction began around the middle of June, 2018. I had photos and pic's of things I had collected for years, of which I wanted to somehow incorporate into my space. Yard was an obstacle and compromise had to be made on size. I ultimately decided on a 38'x29' space. I'm subsequently a commercial contractor so allot of thought was put into operating cost, longevity and obviously my taste for appearance. Foundations were probably an over kill but I wanted to make sure things set on a solid footing. Walls were constructed with 2x6 studs @ 16" centers. Front wall was constructed with 2x10 due to the clearstory ribbon window setting directly over the garage doors, hence I wanted to distribute the load to (3) 18" LVL's per door opening. Walls, Floors (elevated desk) & roof framing all have closed cell foam insulation, 5/8" gyp board. Concrete slab is 8" thick reinforced with WWF & fiber. No cracking what's so ever. I highly recommend fiber for those on the fence about it. Floor has been polished and stained to a natural grey concrete finish. Hot water is provided by a tank less hot water unit in a mechanical room below, A little natural stone accent on the exterior, slate roofing, copper gutters, board & batt siding (very affordable) with translucent stain and an exposed concrete driveway.
I'm pleased with the outcome and happy to finally share with the Rennlist community.




This garage is insane !! Just Amazing... Enjoy and when I retire I planned to build a nice garage. I have a GT4 and Shelby GT350R. Looking to add a McLaren 600LT or 720S.... wish me luck :-)

I’d love to hear a short comparison between the gt4 and gt350r! They were the last two I narrowed it down to and went with the gt4 but it’s always greener...

Well, I'm officially jealous of most people's garages here. Here's my little shack. :P

We get tiny garages in this part of town and I even managed to fit my 39" wide BMW R1200GS Adventure motorcycle in front of the GT3. Wife's Sonata parked outside sadly.

Next goal/house is going to be at least a 3 car garage or something that'll accommodate a lift. Heck, I can't even get a driveway around here.

It's a tough choice then because there isn't much overlap in my opinion. I don't have a R as I didn't see the value for my purposes and they were still hard to get and no discount.

Both serve different purposes. The GT4 to me is like a scalpel. The GT350 is a brute. Both will get you there but it'll feel different. 350 is big and especially big feeling when compared to the GT4. GT4 is a nice tight cockpit and smaller form factor. Goes back to the scalpel comment.

I think the GT350 is more enjoyable on the street and I find myself taking it more places than my Porsche's. Less to worry about. The FPC is a beast that sounds amazing in my opinion. Though hard to enjoy the sweet sounds at high RPM without easily breaking speed laws. Both transmissions shift really well.

I've only driven a Gt350 on track for one day including some autocross and was impressed by its ability but the driving feel doesn't compare to GT4 on track.

Fit and finish, well hands down GT4 though I wouldn't say GT350 is horrendous though I guess it depends on which one you happen to get for fit. Finish, well GT4 again. Materials in the 350 are on the cheaper side. The budget was not spent there. But again different type of car.

In the end depends on your use and what you want out of it.

Once you go to a 3-car garage home there is no going back (speaking from experience). If you are in So Cal and need a realtor, let me know as I do commission rebates for buyers.

Mooty. Outrageous sir. The contrast, the wall art, the collection, all just way over the top.
