it makes sense to buy this car when it is a couple of years old. That way, someone has already paid for the depreciation. It is a great car. Feels rock solid, with amazing agility and acceleration. I use mine sparingly these days because of the high gas prices. It requires premium fuel, which has topped $4 per gallon in Southern California.
Yes, you can get another car for the same amount of cash that has more doodads, but they don't feel as solid, don't last as long, and don't have the exclusivity of the pointed ornament on the hood.
All in all, this is a great car. You will want to drive it a lot and keep it a long time.
