2013 Porsche Boxster

I know I’ve mentioned this before, but if you are looking for bang for your buck, Porsche is not your brand. You are paying for much more than power, at least that want Porsche wants you to think and how we justify buying them, but it is true to a large extent. Everything just seems “right” despite not having the biggest numbers on paper and that is what keeps people lined up around the block to buy them.

Today’s car, a 2013 Boxster up for sale in Cleveland, Ohio, actually has a fair amount of value for what you are paying for it and brings a little flare with it as well. You see that red leather cabin.

2013 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT

Mercedes-Benz has an interesting habit of giving names to the colors but having them look nothing like you would expect. Just recently I looked at a 2005 S600 finished in Designo Graphite Green Metallic but as you can see, there is nothing in that shade of color that shows green. It is all graphite for sure, but green? Nothing. Today, we have another one of those colors with this 2013 SLS AMG GT that is finished Designo Cashmere Pearl. Just looking at the color, I’m not seeing anything that would tell me that is cashmere or pearl. Strange, right? Well, this one might have an explanation.

2013 BMW M3 Coupe Individual Java Green

I wonder where the E9x series cars will trend over the short-term future. If you look at the E46 as the rough equivalent of the Porsche 993 – last of the “classic” formula – then where does that leave the E9x? Perhaps it’s more like the 997; modern, but not too modern. Fast, but not too fast. Good to look at, but also not so shouty that you stand out in the crowd.

Well, at least most of the time that’s the case – but not with today’s car. This is actually the second time I’ve looked at one of the rare E92 coupes painted by BMW Individual in Java Green:

Green with Envy: 2013 BMW M3 Individual Java Green

Though it looks the same, today’s car is one of the other claimed 11 made for North America. What will it cost you today?

2013 Porsche Cayenne GTS

Remember the old saying, “The fastest car is always a rental”? While that might be true in a lot of cases, there are cars that are faster: the “Corporate Executive” vehicle. Why? These cars operate with the same philosophy as the rental cars, but are actually fast to begin with, and not Chrysler 200s from the airport rental parking lot with stale donuts under the seats. They are treated with the same disregard for ownership as the rentals, although usually luxury cars with way more power than Ted the CFO at the oil and gas company actually needs. Case in point? This 2013 Porsche Cayenne GTS up for sale in Texas with over 205,000 miles on it. Yes. One owner and 205,000 miles in 10 years. Over 20,000 miles a year on this GTS, which isn’t exactly a beacon of cheap running cars or reliability. I hope the write-off was worth it on this one.

2013 Porsche 911 Carrera S Coupe

Hard to believe we are coming up on 10 years since the launch of the 991 Porsche 911 chassis. Even though they are officially 2013 model years, production of them began in mid-2012 and they were called “The new 911 Carrera” because there were some leftover 997.2 Turbos that were still produced as 2013 model years. There were no GTS or GT2/GT3 cars for this model year, so if you wanted the best, you had to go with the Carrera S model. Naturally, some who really wanted the new 911 and all the toys that went with them really went all out, and this is an example of one of those cars.

This 2013 C2S up for sale in Syracuse, New York was loaded up with a paint-to-sample exterior, carbon-ceramic brakes, the sport suspension and exhaust system, adaptive sport seats, Burmester audio, and a whole other laundry list of options. How much? Base price on one of these when new was around $120,000, but this one came in just north of $160,000. I wonder if they traded it in on a GT3 the next year?
