You've got the inside track on the apocalypse. Maybe the Mayans buried the key to the end of civilization in your yard, and you're the only one who knows. What car would you buy if you thought the apocalypse was coming in 352 days?

Sure, there are a million cars I'd love to have before the apocalypse comes. How can you possibly choose? Well, if I'm the only one who knows it's real, then no one will bat an eyelash if I show up at a Porsche dealer and walk out with a leased GT3. A couple grand a month? Maybe, but by the time they catch up with me for all the missed payments, I'll already have abandoned it in the desert, as the earth shatters like safety glass on December 21, 2012. In the meantime, I'll have had more end-of-the-world fun than any middle-class MF could possibly imagine.
