Who here has more than one summer car?

Excluding a basic DD for work, does anyone have 2 or 3 sport cars + the daily? What do you got?

I don't daily my 'summer sports car', but I do drive it weekly. Usually on Friday's I will take it to work - sometimes more often if the weather is nice. I try to avoid driving it in the rain.

We have 4 cars total. Not sure if any are considered 'summer cars', though.

In Florida, i don’t think we have ‘summer’ cars because we don’t have winters that the summer cars are put into hibernation for.

But let’s say daily drivers vs. weekend/special occasion/leisure drivers? My family has 3 daily drivers, and i have 4 of the second category

Daily drivers:
Macan GTS
M4 GTS
Mini Cooper JCW GP (R56)

Not daily drivers:
E46 M3
911 GT3
GT4
McLaren 570s

I have my e90 335i with upgraded turbos and all the fun stuff for a weekend car, but daily a 00 turbo civic. Manual trans with coilovers and it's a blast to drive. Sure isn't the fastest, but 300hp in that thing is super fun

An M2 is my only car. It is so great that I don’t need any other cars.

I had the F type and SLK350 at the same time but they didn't get used enough so I sold them both when I bought the Z4. Now down to two DD's, one sportscar and two motorcycles.

I have an electric commuter, my track/weekend M3 CS, my family SUV, and a spare econobox Honda Civic for general purpose. I'd love to trade my Civic for something like a track prepped Miata, but too many family members use it and a stripped Miata with a cage and harness isn't as practical as a Civic.

i'll still drive the 458 or m3 2-3 times a week. The civic is just there to keep miles off both cars. As soon as I get home at 6pm it stays parked and the other cars are used.

And it doesn't hurt that during the rainy days I don't have to take the M3 out and get it dirty.

If I worked close to home i'd sell the civic.
400 miles a week on the m3 adds up quick: depreciation, rock chips, gas cost (93 octane vs 87), insurance, etc.
