Default Obtainable Dream Cars Thread

TL;DR what cars did you always dream about when they were $150,000+ and now they've reached that sweet spot where they are still relevant/ in style but at 10-25% of their original MSRP. This could mean Luxury cars like AMG's, performance cars like Viper/ ZR1's, or even SUV's like Escalades, etc.



For me it's the luxo-barges. Anyone that knows me knows I like trucks and cars that are as big as trucks. 7-Series BMW's, A8 Audi's, S-Class MB, etc etc.

While those are all fine and dandy, one car I've always wanted is a Maserati Quattroporte (probably due to the fact that E drives one in Entourage and they're cheaper than 63 Continental Convertibles lol.) 2005's and 2006's should be immediately ignored. The E-gear transmissions were very problematic and required frequent servicing. However in 2007+ cars they were fitted with a much more DD friendly ZF 6-speed Automatic. Many of the wear item parts are reasonably obtained through aftermarket and they have a decent reliability record from all of the research I've done. I tend to shy away from the executive GT's (luxury) and more for the GT and GTS sport models.



What I typically do is reference KBB and other sites that give average sale prices of model years vs. calendar years. With that I try and determine at what age/mileage I can purchase a car without getting "burned". With the Quattroporte's for instance, I can safely buy a 2007-08 in the 60-80k mile range ($18,000-$22,000) depending on color/options and expect to see most of that money back in one calendar year. With a 2010-12 car (still in the low-mid $30,000 range) I can expect to lose roughly $3,500 over that year still. Obviously this depends on miles, how well you take care of it, etc, but it's a fun way to buy and own a car for a year without taking a bath on it. Easiest way to do this is to have the money/independent financing to be able to complete a private party cash deal, you get a hell of a lot more car for your dollar that way.

My goal would be to buy a 2007-09 GT, and within a year or two hope to get an 11-12 GTS with the same confidence in retaining value.

I think it would be fun to own something like this for a summer... Each year something different. Same concept can be applied to 07-10 Aston Martin DB9's and Vantages, I've ran these metrics on a slew of expensive ass cars lol. Just FYI

I can't be the only one that thinks like this... Shit five years ago you could've bought a 308 Ferrari and have doubled your money by now. When I buy stuff I'm thinking of the sale price before I hand over the money. It's the same concept, just with cool stuff instead of Skid Steers

That's kinda what I was alluding to with buying private party. You have to beat them up equally or better than you're going to be beat up when you go to sell. Plenty of 1-2 owner great cars out there that are up for sale private.

Funny enough the whole quattroporte purchase idea was revamped by a good friend of mine saying he'd finally buy his C63 if I got my Quattroporte. Essentially take luxury cars to diesel events for the summer.

Civilian ones come down at all due to the military releases? Or are they still hanging around that $40,000 mark?
