I'd like the Ford RS, if I was a teenager that wanted a fast economy car that looks like it was built for a teenager without any class.

At 45 grand, I don't see very many teenagers getting one.

random sidebar: 5 years ago I'd not even have to decide between an RS and the CTS-V, I was making fun of the "oversided heavy land yachts".

Now, it would be no contest: CTS-V without even thinking about it. Am I getting old, sons?

$36k w/ no options.

But even then, the average person doing no down payment loan for the full amount is nearly a $700/month payment + insurance. So I'm with you, not many young kids getting one unless they have 4 roommates and spend all their money on their car..........and there are guys that do that.

And yes, you are OLD.

But I can't say anything I want rid of the BRZ and get something with a bit more space, faster, and more comfy.

Someone is buying them, because I see a decent amount of used STI's around. Hell the Navy base near my house has a damn requirement that you have to own a blue WRX/STI or a diesel truck.

What I don't need out of a car: A color-matched stitched spaceship interior designed for market that can't afford the car.

This Boxster S appears to be a killer deal, if the car is sound:

Cars for Sale: Used 2011 Porsche Boxster in S, Pasadena MD: 21122 Details - Convertible - Autotrader

I had my eye on it, but ended up getting a local one in a color I preferred. And then the price dropped.

full bolt on "big" turbo car on slicks.........trapping 110

LOL

Anyways, despite getting old I still cannot even fathom owning a "fun" fail wheel drive car. It just doesn't compute.

If I wanted to do high 11's I'd buy a 2012 c63, not the cheapest of economy cars with bolts-ons.

A 2012 c63 with around 50K can be had for ~$30K.

It looks like you'd need to buy a 2011 CTS-V with over 75K to even get close to the same price -- no wads of extra cash... plus you're driving a caddy with known issues and a still has a cheap shitty shiny-plastic GM interior to top it all off:

much class:




I don't think a CTS-V would fit in my garage to be honest. I do wish there were more options for a sports sedan other than a BMW or Audi. I do have the is350 AWD f-sport on my list.
