Default Do you ever feel like...

...just going out an buying the crappiest example of an exotic car that you can find and seeing how it goes?

I know it's a bad idea but damn, a $40,000 Bentley Continental GT or $55,000 Ferrari 550 Maranello are tempting...

That looks a cheap Bentley but who knows how bad it is.

I think I would rather spend the 55k on a good example of a 996 GT3, but it's not as "exotic" as those cars. I see where you're trying to get at though.

Wow.. That ferrari is Fugly inside, I mean I see that console and reminds me of a well used Chevy car..
Expensive to maintain, low resale value, infinitely unreliable, crappy interior.. Enzo was right, everything around the engine was free...

Brutal, eh?

But that's what I'm saying...an exotic beater that you just don't give a **** about.

Frankly...that's what my c2 is kinda like. It's just not an exotic...

It can be pretty bad. My father had mid 70s Aston Martin that spent so much time in the shop that he had an extra steering wheel ordered for it. I came to his office one day and he was sitting behind his desk with that wheel in his hands (with string back driving gloves) pretending to drive his Aston. We had a good laugh, but I think you get the idea.

Exotics, whether crappy or not, just aren't that good. One thing a 911 is..............is that it functions as a reliable car. Then it's up to you to figure out how much performance you care to wring out. And there isn't much out there that can stay ahead.

We can keep up with most exotics, and tor sure we pass them when they pull off for fuel and break downs.

I wasn't planning on getting rid of the C2.
