What kind of car do you drive?

Pretty basic, but curious as to what kind of car you drive? I still have the same old truck I've had since I turned 16 and will immediately be getting something far nicer once my first real check hits in the future.

For car enthusiasts and people who understand quality engineering, expensive really has nothing to do with it. If I spend $200k on a Porsche, it's because it's an amazing piece of engineering and really fun to drive. I'm not buying it because it's expensive, it just happens to be expensive. Only flashy idiots care about how expensive their car is, it helps them feel like they matter.

Its about comfort. If you have a sizable commute you're spending a good chunk of your life inside your car and it's going to be a lot more enjoyable if the car is more luxurious.

No car. Let's think about it here. If you live in the city with public transportation and can expense Uber/Lyft, how much incremental cost is associated with owning a car? Cost of car + insurance + gas + parking would yield to around 700 - 800 per month if not more. I'd rather live in a bigger apartment. 

There is also limited opportunity to use the car as an M&A professional, if you know what I mean...

Now this is just my cheap ass talking, purely from a financial point of view.

I bought a Supra last year. Had a small monetization event and luckily pay low rent living about 40 mins from work in LA/SF. I've had a car since I moved here and just upgraded in the pandemic selling my old car for more than I bought it for and rolled the gain into a downpayment for the Supra.
 

I don't recommend getting a car let alone an expensive one if you are living in NYC until maybe you are a VP and you really get joy out of driving. You'll be frustrated with traffic knowing the train is likely faster to commute. Any other city depending on where you live, it could make sense.
 

My financial situation is unique with the equity monetization and low rent. Furthermore, I have nearby access to amazing roads along the coast and in the mountains, and I fully take advantage of them and get joy out of driving. If my financial situation nor geography didn't make sense, I don't think I would have bought an expensive car. Lastly, I didn't buy the vehicle to show off, so I'd recommend anyone thinking about splurging to consider whether they are purchasing a similar car for themselves or others.

Not going to lie, I'm in a sweet spot between the commute time and low rent but commuting by car in either city sucks for most people. You also have to remember that parking at least in SF is $25-$40 a day, so you have to consider that as well. LA has more free spots or at least much lower daily parking rates depending on office location.
 

In SF, there is a decent train and bus system, and I'd recommend using that rather than driving if you can avoid doing so. The buses have dedicated lanes and entire streets, so you can avoid traffic that way.  A lot of people with cars residing outside of the city who don't live within walking distance of train stations just park their cars there and commute in. However, if you live in the city and your work is in Silicon Valley not near a train station, you are SOL will have to drive or Uber (not recommended for cost reasons), which will be a minimum around an hour from SF in normal, shitty traffic.

~$35K in 2016 for a sports car (won't specify the model as it's a fairly uncommon one and I don't know if people I know lurk on these boards) and resold it for around $23K earlier this year. Had like 5 legit offers. Didn't have the need for it for at least the next few years. Very fun car to drive, had amazing pickup.

Tesla Model Y, don't recommend getting a car. Never get much use out of one. I have a unique situation that would make not owning one somewhat more expensive even in my HCOL but not by much.

In NY, anything other than a bicycle or scooter is just a money sink.  that doesn't mean you can't own a car if you were really into cars, just be prepared for it to be a money sink you get little utility out of.  after you factor in parking, insurance, tax, repair (from getting your car dinged), I'd be surprised if the total cost of ownership isn't twice as high as somewhere like Houston and the utility less than half.

Out of curiosity, what is your aggregate monthly expenses associated with your GT3RS (car payment, gas, insurance, parking, etc.)? It is my dream car but I dont think Im financially positioned to own one. 

Monthly loan payment: ~$2700/mo.

Insurance: I think I paid $1200 or so for 6 months of insurance in Feb? I really don't remember. This is going to be due again soon so I will update.

Gas: I don't look or keep track at what I pay for gas. This car is not fun if you're not above 6K in revs where all the power and noise is. Consequently I get about 12.5mpg. When I first got it, I think I probably spent $700-800 in gas in the first month but that's because I was driving it so often. You gotta pay to play.

Parking: $75/mo for a safe reserved spot in my apt garage.

Other costs this past year: Here's really the meat of the costs besides the core loan payment. After I first bought it, I found out shortly after it needed new spark plugs = $1100+. I've driven it 5K miles this year and I've trashed the Cup 2's = $2000 for a new set. Had PPF already, but got new tint installed = $900. I pay $100/mo to have a mobile detailer come out and clean it. Did an oil change = $350. Bought extra exhaust components (have yet to be installed) = $2000. 

It's definitely not cheap in the slightest but it's doable. I personally justified it after saving up enough over my analyst stint to pay off the car almost 2x over, which was only possible thanks to COVID supercharging my savings. I've invested all those earnings and my base currently comfortably pays for all the monthly expenses. I honestly have no regrets - this was also my dream car, and the dream to own one has always been why I strived for a good career in the first place. 

Another alternative you can consider is the 991.1 GT3, which is 90% of the experience at 60% of the cost. Honestly this route is probably what I should have gone with. They are an incredible value at their current market prices.

Any considerations when choosing the GT3RS (vs like a 991.1 or .2)? The 991.2 has also been a dream car of mine (even more than the new 992s) and will likely be the next in the stable but would love to hear what made you go with the RS. 

You have great taste! I also prefer the 991 generation to the 992. The 992 is a technical marvel, but the 991 holds a special place in my heart. It was the generation I drove my first sports car and Porsche ever (a C4S) and to me I far prefer the 991 looks. Plus the 991 sounds better thanks to no OPF, which is a huge portion of what makes these cars so special. 
In terms of why I chose mine, candidly it all came down to price. At the time I bought mine, a 991.2 GT3RS commanded a $50-70K premium over a 991.1. I could not justify that given in spirit the cars are the same. 
I also considered a 991.2 GT3, which is about the same price as the .1 3RS. However, that car feels in spirit very similar the .1 GT3, which could be had for a significantly cheaper price $130-150K. With the engine warranties in the .1 GT3 still lasting into 2024/25/26, it just didn't make sense to me to go with a .2 GT3 when I could have effectively the same experience for much cheaper.

If I could choose again, I think a .1 GT3 might've been a better fit. The value you get for what they're trading at right now is just too good. It's slightly softer than my RS, but I don't track the car (although I intend to do so one of these days! Hard to do a track day if you can't get a weekend off…) and it would probably suit my needs better. And be a lot cheaper! No regrets though.

Having a vehicle provides a great deal of freedom that you don't realize until you actually have one. Even just simple things like getting out of the city on a whim one weekend, sure you can rent a car but that is often a friction point that will cause many people to just say "f*ck it" because they don't want to deal with the hassle of renting a car. I had a car while I was living in the city and a friend of mine didn't have a car, the amount of times he would ask to use it were significant. To me it's 100% worth the expense.

Beautiful 458 - are the wheels Novitec?

I had a hell of a hard time deciding between the 458 and F12 at the end of last year. To my eye the 458 is the most beautiful modern Ferrari and of course being the last rear-mid N/A V8 car to come out of Maranello will always be a classic. However, I sort of missed the window with prices skyrocketing and at the time F12's hadn't had such a meteoric rise to the point that 458's and F12's were within ~10% of each other.

Ultimately I decided to go with the F12 since I already have a GT3 and thought the V12 with the flat 6 would be a perfect pairing. Also the sound of the V12 is out of this world and puts the Porsche to shame. So far so good and pleased to see the values of F12's continue to rise. To many people (including myself) they look much better than the 812 as it is the last pininfarina designed V12.

Thank you! The wheels are Forged Motegi wheels - the company made the wheels for the 458 GT3 racecar, and released a commercial version that was similar styling wise

I think you've chosen perfectly - the F12 paired with the GT3 is a fantastic combo. Also agree on the styling point. These high performance N/As are not long for this world

I just want to say I'm so jealous. Nothing beats a Ferrari NA V12 in sound. Sadly all the Ferrari NA products have edged upwards in price and I don't know if they'll ever come back down. The 458 and 488 are about the same price now, which is absolutely bonkers that a 10+ year old 458 is now more expensive than 991.2 GT3RS prices. At this point I don't think I'll ever own one.

Completely agree that the F12 is far more beautiful than the 812 as well. Both models should hold strong on prices into the future. The Competizione is the V12 swan song, end of era sadly.

Deal Team Six, what's your opinion? Comment below:

2010 E92 M3. I wouldn't call it expensive as I was able to walk out the door paying less than the sticker price of the average new car sold in '21. I really wanted a high revving NA V8, and a 8200 rpm 4.0L S65 did the trick. Great car to daily as well as track. 

I knew repairs / maintenance would be bad, but it is so much worse than I expected. Fun cars are a horrendous investment, but everyone is addicted to something I suppose. Cant imagine what it would be like to own a GT3RS or Mc 720S. 

Regarding my next cars, I have two avenues I am considering. If I go practical, I would honestly just get a 2012 civic / accord. If I want to go further down the rabbit hole, next car will likely be a Supra, C8, or a V10 R8. Depends on how ridiculous I get. 

For anyone contemplating a luxury / sports car as their sole vehicle, I would highly recommend getting a beater first.

R8 V10 was pretty reliable when I owned it. At the time, Fidelity was offering an extended warranty for cars still under factory warranty, $3500 for +6 years of additional warranty over factory, bumper to bumper coverage with $500 deductible. The themostat on the car did end up failing during my ownership (fans would constantly run and temp never got up to normal), was replaced by the fidelity warranty. Otherwise a pretty solid car.

I would grab a stick Civic Hatch as a daily, the 1.5T is really fuel efficient but still a blast to drive. Hatch is massive.

Not a huge fan of the C8. Maybe I'm just biased against American cars but it just doesn't do anything for me, excited for the Z06 though.

2019 Porsche 718 Cayman S

Cost about $75k. Wanted a 911 or used R8 but got killed in the market this year, and got a pretty good deal on a CPO cayman with the right options so pulled the trigger. Was originally shopping for a Cayman turbo GTS, but apparently the S and GTS have pretty much the same engine, and with an ECU tune both can produce the same HP and torque and get into the ~3.7-3.6s range for 0-60, which felt like a bargain at ~$75k relative to the brand name, reliability, and performance potential.

Actually got my first car in college. Was a lucky bastard and bought a few Bitcoin in high school after a friend told me about it and sold around 17k. Used the proceeds to put 50% down on a 2015 RWD F Type R. Crazy to imagine these cars just 4 years ago were in the mid 40s. Was a CPO car and I got a good rate and 2 years of coverage.

Sold this car for a 10k profit during the Covid boom in 2020. Everyone wanted a sports car and this was the only year of a F type R before they went fully AWD (and was still the original styling before the current gen looks which are debatable at best).

Have been able to keep a car around for my 2 years as an analyst. Parking is nuts, 500 bucks a month. However, I think it's important to consider what you buy and not the monthly payment or total cost. Since the F type I've tried to buy cars which fit my liking but anticipate future demand. My next "car" was actually a Ford Raptor. Have driven it 30k miles in 2 years and was offered a short while ago for almost sticker of what I paid for it as I had it custom ordered from factory and factory orders can't have dealer mark up hikes at Ford. 
 

Won't go into the insurance and nuances in this post but I think the biggest takeaway is to buy cars which don't depreciate as much rather than just bottom line headline figures. An E92 M3 is likely a better buy than a 3 series from a newer generation simply because one holds value if not appreciates in value. The other is a widget. Do your diligence, be willing to take a weekend to travel to check something out, put in the effort to buy private part, and make your money on the buy not the sale.

Got off early tonight so here's a continuation of the above and my personal thoughts on good cars to buy in this upcoming downturn.

Below 25k:

Select AP1 generation Honda S2k (assuming you can drive manual and can upkeep maintenance on a 20 year old car, find a good Indy shop, most dealer techs weren't around long enough to know these cars well)

Subaru WRX STI Hatch: Subaru stopped making the hatch in 2014, and the eJ257 motor is unchanged from the previous gen to the current (pre 2022) gen. They discontinued the STI this year and the new car looks like a cross trek. These cars in good condition with acceptable mods will be worth a lot one day. 
 

Below 50k

cadillac CTSV (previous gen). Extra points for wagon or manual, or both!

e92 m3 with manual, competition (zcp), and carbon roof

W204 gen C63. Last of the naturally aspirated V8 C63s now that AMG is going hybrid 2L 4 bangers. Guaranteed future classic and easy for anyone to drive as it's automatic and more of a daily car than the above.

Audi A6 form 2005 that probably costs me more in maintenance and gas with its V8 than the monthly payment on a Tesla.

guys, in what cities can and cannot you drive a low suspension car?

I'm planning to get my first car sometime over the next year and I like cars that look like sports cars, i.e. suspension is low. I'm wondering if it will be a problem now that I read some comments above.

Houston is atrociously terrible. I am very selective where I drive mine and I've actually scouted out places that I've never been to beforehand to make sure I can clear a parking lot. A nose lift is an absolute must here.

I had a C63S a while back that I bottomed out the front lip on and it was so bad that I had to get a new bumper. And a C63S isn't even that low.

Sed facilis aut accusantium ea qui eos. Est sit quia aliquid iusto enim. Sint aut eum enim dolor. Consequatur quaerat sed a iste dicta. Officiis voluptas numquam nesciunt dolor.

Est vitae et eveniet hic doloribus. Sint molestias molestiae voluptatem dolor animi omnis. Odio nesciunt consequuntur alias est reiciendis non non. Dolorem sequi sed aliquam molestiae voluptatem exercitationem. Autem asperiores quasi voluptas voluptatem eaque quis odio amet.

Aperiam voluptatum dolor sint. Consequuntur quia ut laudantium dolorem harum dolorem rerum. Soluta dolor eum et dolorum sunt autem non maiores. Natus dolor porro sit est cupiditate.

Mollitia et dignissimos beatae reiciendis. Sunt corrupti ut adipisci natus repellendus excepturi. Qui et molestias earum eius qui molestiae assumenda suscipit.

Dicta omnis autem sed nam debitis. Consequatur officiis laboriosam et perspiciatis consectetur provident iusto. Hic dolorum nisi delectus commodi modi. Sed pariatur neque perspiciatis rem voluptatem amet. Nulla dolorem est accusantium quia perspiciatis rerum distinctio.

Culpa quae exercitationem quo dolorum repellat vel. Eum ipsa deserunt quaerat doloribus voluptatem. Possimus pariatur beatae ut assumenda quo et eum nihil. Quod est suscipit maxime explicabo.

Corrupti necessitatibus quasi ut magni eum. Iste enim a error doloremque. In aut aut magnam deserunt modi sunt quod quo. Qui recusandae vitae accusamus vitae nemo. Qui animi consequuntur omnis incidunt vel adipisci.

Libero fugiat qui velit facere non incidunt perspiciatis. In voluptatem ut beatae velit sit illum quae eveniet.

Aut et quasi soluta officia ut et aut fuga. Ducimus sunt sint animi nihil.

Velit eum sint accusamus minus est. Eum voluptatem ut veniam blanditiis natus et aliquam quia. Est et sequi aliquam repellat. Nostrum harum earum dolorem natus possimus ut. Sapiente distinctio sint nam.

Consequatur non vel voluptatem. Placeat inventore et eum aliquid voluptatem. Est excepturi doloremque voluptatem laboriosam sit vero. Omnis earum quia totam reiciendis possimus sunt earum. Deserunt odio vitae totam ab suscipit neque ducimus. Quod ut aliquid nihil numquam et enim. Eos quas possimus qui eligendi voluptas.

Beatae et repellat illo vel. Dolor dolore fugit alias facere. Ipsum itaque nesciunt exercitationem sit assumenda labore aut. Excepturi et ipsum voluptatem. Accusamus expedita esse laboriosam et et ut dignissimos. Minima voluptatibus qui nesciunt ipsum quidem.

Tempore voluptatem quam repellat voluptate. Consequatur officiis repellat autem esse rerum. Natus rerum in placeat laudantium aut voluptates. Vel labore rerum molestiae fuga.

Necessitatibus voluptas rerum doloribus accusantium nisi. Quo velit laborum rerum quisquam velit. Sed perferendis et rerum dolorum unde ad dolore. Quia enim suscipit et eius fugit. Eum id incidunt dignissimos.

Aperiam est cupiditate qui. Sequi veritatis et eveniet impedit magni quas sunt qui.
