No offense but that car got flipped over when Florida Gators beat OSU for the national title. Not a car that fancies my eye. But it does yours so thats all that matters.

But you're gonna buy an expensive car. Makes sense that the inside of that Porsche is better than the place you, your girlfriend and roomate (hopefully its just one) reside in.

Hes not hating, hes just giving you the cold hard facts. You wanna buy a car that will cost much more than where you live :

That money could be spent much more wisely than on a car with a name.

There are ALOT of nice cars out there for half the price, but not the name, but if thats what you want, go for it.

Does the car have a hat rack? That's probably worth the 65k Roxy.

you are probably mistaking this for the standard focus but this is the SVT (special vehicle team) 175 hp 7500 rpm getric 6 speed trans I could go on and on about it I will admit it is not the prettiest looking car but driving back to Cali in it and was doing about 130 at about 4500-5000 rpm in 5th gear with another to go I called it my poor mans sports car.

You can get a really nice Infiniti or Lexus for 20 grand less.

The only way you could justify spending that much money on a car is if your salary is 7 digits. Or if your parents make 7 digits.

I'm in the car sales/leasing business, and i'll try to give you some advice if you'll accept it.

Sorry, Dude. But you won't get that car for $65,000. Its listed at $71,000+ right now, and with taxes, admin fee and a waranty, its going to be waaaayy out of that $65,000 price range. Waaay. If I were you, i'd go a year down, and maybe even get a car with less mileage maybe (I haven't checked the mileage on that 911)? Or go for a Boxter? If its about chicks, then I highly doubt they even know the difference between a 911 and a Boxter. Its all 'A Porsche'. Oh, and its always better to buy something straight up in cash, then to have to make payments of some sorts. So don't listen to people that tell you to finance, and pay intrest and have to pay all that bullcrap. Buy your car straight up, leave, and never have to deal with a bank or dealership f*cktards again. Trust me.

Personally, i'd go for a cheaper car. With that kind of dough, Probably a later model M3, or even a little but older M5 or something. You can get very low mileage for $65,000.

errr boxster, thats nasty, if your gonna get a proche that isnt a 911, the cayman is the minimum, boxsters are ugly hairdressers cars, caymans as very very nice though

the good thing about buying that 911 though is that they do hold their value very well

Well, it does seem like he's buying a Porsche just to have one, and I suggested a Boxter. Boxters have pretty decent resale value as well.

The souped up Camry is half the price of that porsche, the standard is about the same as the Altima. Both are really nice though.

I recently went to a Honda dealer, and this asian guy that worked there told me that HOnda recently made a deal to bring over some Chinese sedan that would instantly become the best on the market sometime in '07. I'll be interested to see this thing. I didn't understand everything he said, so I might be paraphrasing, he seemed excited though.
