Porsche's

Do you think they are rich mans cars, or do you think anyone who can afford one should get one?


I've seen some in the Trader for $30K-$40K with under 100k so they aren't that expensive. But I rarely see regular guys or even young guys driving them.


Thoughts?


p.s. Im talking about the cars, not the SUV. Cayenne's are definetly for chicks lol.

I'd buy a car for the ride / reliability etc, more along the lines of the physical aspects of the car, not the status symbol or what it means to other people. If you like the car and enjoy driving it, that's all that matters.

PLUS, even if you manage to buy it, How are you going to insure them?

I am sure that anyone who is able to buy a brand new civic can afford a used porsche, but maintaining AND insuring them is another question that one has to consider.

How bad can insurance be on a 30 Grand car?

I highly recommend you contact your insurance and get a quote from them on a Porsche of your choice. Then go into Pfaff Porsche, and re-iterate your initial post and let them explain to you the joys of Porsche maintenance/upkeep.

As you stated, theres a REASON why every joe schmo who can afford a 30k Porsche doesn't drive one.

Regards

^^mid life crises FTW........lol. I know you can pick up a decent one for relativley cheap. But you cant winter drive those......unless your an idiot...lol.

Also insurence depends on the type of car not its value...........you will get raped by insurance as well as maintinance.
