2015 Mercedes-Benz C400

Outside of some exceptionally rare or select AMGs, I don’t really feature a lot of new Mercedes-Benz cars. One big reason is that while this stuff is cool and all, they aren’t all that interesting to me. Another big reason being is that they are all quite common and you can just head down to your local dealer and dodge sales representatives until they figure out you can’t afford anything. After they realize that, their brain tuns to them saying ”Have you ever considered leasing a car?” while you scurry away. Don’t get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with these newer cars, but for me, I enjoy my aged vehicles.

Today, I happen to come across a newer, non-AMG, C-Class that peaked my interest because of two things. First being it offers surprisingly great performance numbers and second, it’s amazing depreciation for being only a few years old. This 2015 C400 up for sale in Connecticut is probably the best bargin W205 on the market right now, if not the best bang for the buck newer Mercedes. Let me explain why.

2015 Porsche 911 GT3

When I first came across this Signal Yellow 2015 Porsche 911 GT3 I could have sworn I had seen it before and already had posted it. The selling dealer looked familiar (and not just familiar as a dealer, but familiar for having this particular car for sale) and the overall look of the car looked familiar. I was sort of right.

The car I was thinking of was not in fact this GT3, but a Signal Yellow Cayman GT4. I assume you can see the resemblance. Given that the seller is the same I do wonder if the original owner of both cars was the same person, or maybe the owner of this dealer just really likes Signal Yellow. Regardless, pretty much everything I said about that GT4 applies to this GT3. Signal Yellow is one of Porsche’s best historic colors and it looks great in most any application.

2015 Porsche 911 Carrera S Coupe

It has taken me a while to warm to the 991’s design. I’ve always found it too flat and that’s coming on the heels of the gradual flattening of the 996 and 997. It has sort of a stepped on beetle look. I still prefer the more upright windshield of earlier 911s, but ultimately aerodynamics seems to have won out.

There wasn’t any particular turning point in my perception of the 991; over time I suddenly found myself walking past them and admiring their looks. Simple familiarity I suppose. I wouldn’t say it’s become my favorite 911 design or anything of that sort, but I have finally begun to enjoy the styling. The performance, obviously, always was easy to appreciate as each iteration of the 911 tends to improve in that regard. There’s no particular reason for leading with these thoughts, though I do wonder if others have found themselves feeling similarly.

It does help explain why a 911 like this, which I might have previously ignored, now seems so appealing to me. This is a Sapphire Blue Metallic 2015 Porsche 911 Carrera S Coupe, located in Pennsylvania, with 15,350 miles on it. It has the manual transmission and sport seats. It looks phenomenal!

2015 Porsche 911 Targa 4S

I have expressed my love for the Targa numerous times throughout these pages and that naturally extends to the reintroduction of the proper version as part of the 991 lineup. Porsche seems to have pegged the new Targa as the least sporting of the 911 models. It’s only available with all-wheel drive and at its debut I believe it was the heaviest (read: slowest) of the various 911 models you could buy. Though a GTS model eventually was made available it still seems like relative to a comparable Coupe or Cabriolet you’re opting for the Porsche luxury and refinement side of the spectrum. At least so far as their flagship sportscar goes. But let’s be honest, the worst performing 911 still is more than capable of lighting a fire in your belly.

While I think it would be great if there were a rear-drive Targa S at some point we make the best of what’s available. I think this one does just that. Here is a Guards Red 2015 Porsche 911 Targa 4S, located in Houston, with only 5,100 miles on it. It’s equipped with PDK, adaptive sport seats, PCCB, sport exhaust, and a few other nice items.

2015 Porsche 911 GT3

I have a very specific interest with this post. Though even once my question is answered I still think this 2015 Porsche 911 GT3 is worth some attention. My interest: what color is this? I don’t know if I’ve ever seen it. The ad description says it’s Meteor Gray Metallic. The ad also says it has 24,866 miles. The mileage obviously is wrong; the odometer reads 11,137 miles as indicated in other parts of the ad. The color too presumably is wrong, unless Meteor Gray Metallic now looks completely different than it did originally. I’m assuming that isn’t the case and that this is the ad text for a different car. The dealer’s site provides the same text so it isn’t simply a problem with the eBay listing.

So, does anyone know what color this is? Is it paint to sample? The asking price is quite high for a 2015 GT3 so it could be paint to sample. It’s an interesting color. I’d like to know more. (My first guess is that it’s Chalk. I haven’t seen many 911s that color, but those I have seen have shown a little more gray than this one. Perhaps that’s the lighting, or perhaps it’s a different color entirely.)

Mahogany Metallic 2015 Porsche 911 GT3

This 911 GT3 presents me with a do over. A little while ago I came across this Anthracite Brown GT3 and was quite impressed. As GT3s go it was a stunner, though not necessarily in the traditional ways in which these cars attract us. However, I had just written about a couple similar 911s and had a few others I wanted to post. So I sat on it for a little bit. It sold. Darn.

When I first saw this Mahogany Metallic 2015 Porsche 911 GT3 I thought it might actually be the same car. Perhaps this dealer had bought it and was now trying to flip it. Once I read what color it was I knew it was a different car, but it remains no less impressive than that Anthracite Brown example. They are fairly different colors: Mahogany is a much deeper shade of brown than Anthracite, but each still represents a departure from the norm for these models. That makes them quite rare and, for some, also quite desirable.

2015 Porsche Cayman S

From the first time I saw the 981 I was smitten. The redesign seemed to bring both the Boxster and Cayman into their own better than with previous designs, but it was the Cayman that really caught my eye. The slightly longer wheelbase seems to work very well with the body. It also has a Ferrari 430 look about it, though I’m honestly not sure how I feel about that since the 430 is far from my favorite Ferrari (even if it’s an improvement on its predecessor). Regardless, I like the 981 Cayman quite a bit. That the model culminated with the absolutely wonderful GT4 has drawn me to it even further.

I don’t tend to feature them all that often, but this one caught my eye. It’s more subtlety pretty than something that’ll stop you in your tracks. The dark blue is elegant, rather than flashy, and the total package seems a desirable one. Here we have a Dark Blue Metallic 2015 Porsche Cayman S, located in St. Louis, with Luxor Beige interior and 39,365 miles on it. It’s equipped with power sport seats and a 6-speed manual transmission. Excellent!

2015 Mercedes-Benz G550 6×4

Just when I thought I’ve seen everything, I see something new. It is probably pretty easy to see why I’m featuring this vehicle today, but it’s what it’s lacking that has me surprised. This is a 2015 Mercedes-Benz G550 6×4. Yes, a 6×4. It’s pretty crazy to think that a 6×6 G-Wagen is almost normal to me now, but a 6×4 is an entirely new way to get your six wheel kicks. From what I understand, this G started out as your normal G550, then had another rear end tacked on the end with an axle that isn’t connected to the driveshaft but the braking system is entirely functional. Inside, all the extra room from the extended body work gives you another row of seats and the regular capacity in the hatch area. Surprisingly, all this work looks pretty good and might even pass as a factory job if you are squinting hard enough. But of course, all this comes at what cost?

2015 Porsche 911 GT3

I’m going to follow upon yesterday’s Viper Green 911T by jumping forward a few decades straight into the depths of modern technology, all the while retaining that beautiful color. At least I think that’s what I’m doing. This paint-to-sample 2015 Porsche 911 GT3 appears to be Viper Green. We aren’t told the color specifically, but the look is right. I do always enjoy coming across modern 911s (and Caymans) painted in these colors. They add panache to an already alluring car and serve as a nod to those enthusiasts who’ve been with Porsche since nearly the beginning. And this one even comes in at a price a good bit under that of the 911T. There are just so many choices!

2015 Mercedes-Benz E350

Last week I checked out a W212 E63 S AMG Estate in the wild Dolomite Brown Metallic. Today we have another W212, but unlike the E63, this one doesn’t do 0 to 60 mph in 3.6 seconds while hauling a load of drywall. This is just the regular 3.5 V6 that makes a respectable 302 horsepower. So what is so special about it? Well, if you haven’t noticed, it once again is the color. This 2015 E350 for sale in Charlotte, NC is painted in Indigo Blue Metallic and is one of my favorite modern Mercedes colors. It is a little bit of blue and a little bit of purple and a whole lot of awesome in my eyes.
