They will. Last I looked 718s had already gotten into low the 40s in some cases. I’d agree they’re likely to be the next sports car bargains, and they’re still truly excellent to drive. Read more

This deal is CP for sure, I agree and want to live in that fantasy world of a decent $6k Boxster existing Read more

I couldn’t agree more, I love my XJ, but its spiritual successor exists already and prints money. Like it or not, the LJ blazed the trail then the four door Wranglers followed. We have a modern Cherokee, it just says Wrangler Unlimited on it. Reasonably comfortable, highly capable, four real enough seats, expensive Read more

No the 968 had the first production Porsche 6sp manual. It got it before the 911. You could get the tiptronic, but the manuals are more common. Read more

I’ve got a third gen and overall.... it’s my favorite car I’ve owned so far. I even pick it over my Porsches for recreational driving on occasion. Read more

Meh... I looked at a WK2 and the Touareg 3(2012-2017) and ended up with the VW. Sure the Jeeps are more capable, but the T3 is just fine for some mild two tracking, and laughably more comfortable. Read more

Good luck finding a Transsyberia that the owner is willing to let go of. I looked before I bought my T3... there were two and both were over $30k. Didn’t take long to get de-listed either. They’re extremely rare with the options you listed, and are probably one of the few Cayennes that Porsche PeopleTM want. Read more

Yeah, this is right on the money for a sorted 996 cab at retail. My local Porsche dealer sold a very similarly equipped and mile 996 (Silver over Metropol Blue) C4 cab with hard top for right around this price. Read more

Even then, my neighbors block the sidewalk in the ‘burbs. I feel bad about having five cars at my house for another few days, but the two people across the street have a full driveway(3-4 cars spilling over the sidewalk) and two cars on the street. It’s insane, at least I use my garage to store cars, and not stuff. Read more

You’re pretty much on the money. The people buying these like the idea of a Range Rover or Grand Cherokee, but don’t need the actual capability, luxury, or performance. They still want to appear to have some sort of quasi-luxurious/exclusive “lifestyle” vehicle that looks “unique” enough compared to the Escape etc.. Read more

I dropped the top yesterday evening in Austin. I mean I wouldn’t sit in I-35 traffic at 5pm with it down, but a hill country drive in the early evening? Not too bad at all with a little AC. Read more

Sounds like an implementation problem. VW provides 5 distances and 3 “aggressiveness” settings. Read more

Best feature on my Touareg, save for the extremely comfy seats. Won’t buy another daily without radar cruise.

Check listed TDI vs Gas prices on comparable Q7s/Touaregs/Cayennes, it’s not even close. When I bought it was nearly a $10k difference so I went for the trusty VR6. Read more

Yeah, I drove a 996 expecting to love it since I’m a huge Porsche fan, and I just didn’t. It was nice but didn’t yell, “Sell your 335i and buy me!” like the 944 and 987 did. Great budget sports cars, but they just feel “normal” compared to the older and newer cars. Really, even into the late 00s Porsche was using some Read more

It’s difficult. I just bought a 987.2 and have a 944. Since my dad decided to buy a 968 and there is no point in having two 3.0L transaxles, I’ll probably be selling the 944. That being said: Read more

Assuming you have the cash to fix issues when they appear, which at $35k budget you should, the 955/957 or the VW Touareg 1 and 2 are pretty good, relatively left field choices. Low Range and good traction devices(a rear locker if you’re really lucky) mean they’re actually good off-road. Plus they’re comfy, and are Read more

Q7 isn’t a bad choice if you get the VR6(or I assume the 3.0T, but I don’t have personal experience with it) and avoid the air suspension. I’m smitten with my Touareg, it is extremely comfy, quiet, competent and can handle mild dirt adventures. Overall, the Treg/Q7/Cayenne are a pretty stout platform if you take care Read more

No one wants to spend a week or two in DFW. Austin/Hill Country, Crockett National Forest, Mustang Island/Port A(Corpus), NOLA/Kisatchie, or even Hot Springs Arkansas, definitely..... but DFW? Not unless you have family there, it’s basically Phoenix without the state land, and none of the pretty scenery nearby.

I feel that... even though it’s a decent deal - I wouldn’t buy this MX3 either and there’s a lot of good choices for sub $5k at the moment. Read more
