I am partial toward Audi and Infiniti, but I do not understand what the "obvious reasons" for only including Euro and JDM cars are? Maybe someone would want a Mustang GT/Boss/Saleen/Roush, Camaro ZL1, Corvette Z06/ZR1, OR CTS-V

I would keep my F10 as an AWD beater and buy a 2015 MB SLC or an SL63 depending on the redesign. If BMW still exists, I may replace my F10 a M6 GranCoupe xDrive if BMW was willing to build me one.

When i went to drive event, i felt Audi to be very close call...and of course benz sucked big time, i hated its interior most...And i seriously dont like lexus don't ask me why...unfortunately i personally dont even consider other brands in place of BMW... any ways if ther is no BMW i would go with Audi or Porsche

Disclaimer: this is just my personal opinion no offense to any body.

I didn't even drive the Panamera when I was shopping because it did not offer a manual

I'd get the Rolls Royce with the Alfred option which renders clutch decisions irrelevant.

Porsche. My next car will likely be a Porsche even with BMW still in business. I'll stay loyal to BMW if they offer an F30 that handles as good or better than the E90 M3. And better need to apply to feel not only track and testing numbers. I'm not going to trade down on that again. That's a lesson learnt from the F10.

Manual transmission is non-negotiable for me. I'd probably look at all other European makes (Audi first, I think), limited to cars with a lot of power (I have a 550i) and manuals. And the Cadillac CTS-V would also be a serious contender.

thought RR listed that as the "Jeeves" package...

If I was forced to choose a NON BMW…

I'd go with a Nissan Sentra...0 down $89.00 a month. Well equipped with four wheels and paint. When I tired of the color, I’ll toss it in the recycling bin and get another….
