Anyone here driven a Cayman R? I don't understand why these things haven't depreciated more. Must be a production numbers thing. I am intrigued, but given their prices, used 911 S seems like the better (and cheaper) route. Can even get a used GTS for that money.
Z3M also came as a roadster in the states. Flared wheel wells, better looking rims, fat tires, M side grill. Much more aggresive looking than the standard roadster.
Drag racing. The idea of having a "sleeper."
Actually, this is what people used to do. In the muscle car / hot rod era, people would change the badging so that people thought you had a 327 when you really had a 454 or something like that. Makes sense for performance cars.
That Fulvia they sold with the Rally get up is a nice one.
Regarding the earlier discussion surrounding VWs, I have had a Jetta and a Passat and I concur with the statement: all of the downside of owning a German car with none of the upside. Also, saw this vid recently on the Cadillac ATS-V and the Mercedes C63 AMG and was very impressed with the competition in this segment now. With these high performance 4 doors, it's no longer just the M3 / M5 dominating: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OEJYD6PS9q0&feature=youtu.be
My older brother bought a 635Csi off of a family friend when we were in high school (1999, I believe). It was awesome. He got it for a song. Put it in a ditch about 3 weeks later. Completely totaled. Was fun while it lasted.
I stand behind Rectify. Excellent show.
My wife ended up getting a Mazda CX-5. Not too exciting, but meets her needs.
I was at the Nordstrom Rack on State Street here in Chicago on Thursday of last week and they had a lot of Barbour coats on sale. I only saw a rack of women's so not sure if there were men's. I didn't look as I already have one and didn't need to be tempted. Women's waxed coats were in the $200 range if I recall correctly. Large selection. Guessing there could be men's as well.
