Mazda 3 GT is like 25k new and it is the Benz or bimmer luxury you see at 50-60k+.

I have a new 2017 auto sedan and the women are impressed.

have some other priorities, but the porsche boxster is hard to beat at about $15K all in with repairs, etc. I also like the Cayman, which is the boxster non-convertible, but its hard to find as cheap.

Cayman is holding its value so well its cheaper on a cost per year or cost per mile to buy a new one.

also like old vettes. lots of research to do.

The Cayman looks extremely nice. You can get a 2010 base for around 20k. You can put some caliper covers on it and give it a spoiler and it would look like a beast.

The BMW 650i should be on your list. The coup for pure driving dynamics or the convertible for the bitches.

The problem is that there aren't many of them, and in my area the prices tend to be higher. (Plenty of Boxsters and lower prices) But I'm very much in tune with what you are saying.

Have you looked out of your area?

I couldn't find the (very specific used performance) car I wanted in my MSA, eventually opened my geographic scope, and found a great deal 500 miles away. Put the deal together, flew out, closed, and had a BALL driving home.

My observations from my first time doing this were -

1) Makes a Lot of Sense if You Want a Specific Ride/Great Deal
2) Requires Patience
3) Considerably easier & Less Risky than it seems
4) Only Makes Sense for Rare or Performance Cars
5) Fun Way to Shop/Buy
6) Get a Good Radar Detector
7) Make Sure You Have the Right (Economical & Independent) Mechanic

Also, I found a wealth of model specific, out of warranty maintenance, and performance info on the following sites. Extremely knowledgable and helpful forum participants who actually have owned the rides you are considering, especially the Boxster. (You're going to want a Boxster S, btw.)

rennlist

You also may want to check out your local Cars & Coffee. Lots of friendly, knowledgable folk. Also cars that never get listed.

Good luck. This is a fun process. You've obviously earned it. Enjoy it!
