    People really overestimate how much used Ferraris and Lambos cost. Drop 70k on something from the late 90s, have it sit in your garage & enjoy the unlimited sex. This will work if you’re < 300 pounds

      As a compromise you could even get both a reasonable car and a really fun absurd car, like a used lotus elise, alfa romeo 4c, or maserati granturismo, together with something reasonably decent and utilitarian for under $70k combined.

    In case you haven't noticed, Macan is the FANG equivalent of suburban soccer mom cars.

      May I suggest a used 911 at 45-50k?

      Be more interesting, hold out and put in a reservation for the taycan or taycan crossturismo.

      Why is buying a used sports car a bad idea. Wouldn't it be a better option financially if most of the major depreciation is over?
      May 15
    • Google __human__
      Yeah, depreciation is the biggest cost in high end cars. People don't like the lottery of part failure outside of warranty, since it can end up worse and that is scary, but on average it's pretty much always cheaper to buy used, especially slightly older sports cars with no depreciation left, like a lotus elise from the 200Xs that hasn't lost any value in like 5 years.

    I got a Maserati Ghibli sq4 used. No problems yet. Not as polished as a German but it is an emotional ride....

    I can recommend a BMW 4 series - 430i or 440i Gran Coupe.
    I got one myself in Snapper Rocks Blue, M-Sport package and it's so much fun to drive and I get constantly compliments about the color - https://cdn.bmwblog.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/2018-bmw-430i-gran-coupe-test-drive-13-830x553.jpg and my friends envy me for it. Definitely turned out to be my best car purchase so far, by a lot. You can get good discount and deals with BMW - I got mine more than 30% off MSRP
    (not saying this is usual, but I'm not kidding).
    Definitely going to be in or below your budget, even with all the options. BMW M5 is also a beast, but probably not within your budget. New 3 series seems also quite great but haven't driven it myself yet.

      just to add: the Mazda 3 2019 is also an awesome car imho, especially price / value wise, but it has really first class interior, features, looks good and is similar fun to drive like some much more expensive cars. Obviously it's prestige wise not in the same category as most other cars here, but if you just like to save a few bucks but have an fun car nevertheless, you should give it a shot.

      I would wait with Mazda until they (hopefully) reintroduce Mazdaspeed 3

    Lexus if you value reliability and money. $250k isnt that much. Buy a 2017 RX350 for $30k or less.

    I got a used Porsche Cayman, super reliable, a lot of fun to drive and most importantly cheaper if you buy used or CPO.

    Why a Macan? It’s the cheapest Porsche, afaik. Are you brand conscious? Anyway, just curious. You can get so much more performance/dollar from other cars for 60-70k.

      It has same engine as VW GTI, and is not exactly quick on the freeway since it’s a lot heavier than a VW GTI. If Macan, get at least the S with the V6.

    I’d recommend a GTS although it’s pushing 80K with reasonable options

    I have a Porsche GT3 with less of a TC. It’s all about your budget and expenses.

    Buy a cheaper car and invest the money instead. No one cares what car you drive.

    Love Macan ! It's amazing. Lots of options under that price range . Audi A5 is a good choice too. You should at least test drive model 3 too
