2019 Porsche 718 Cayman

If you’re looking for ‘bang for your buck’, Porsche probably isn’t going to be your brand. You pay a lot for Porsches compared to equivalent vehicles from other brands, but on the other hand you do get a that badge. How much value that brings is naturally up to you. You could argue that it is worth it in many cases, but sometimes the numbers don’t lie.

If you want to start entry level, the 718 chassis is going to be launching point in the low $60,000 range; the base 911 is $40,000 more. However, buying a 718 for that $60,000 and change is nearly impossible given the options and how quickly they add up, and the dealer probably won’t order you one unless you are the best customer they have. The solution? Looks in the used market and hope something turns up. That is what we have today in a 2019 Cayman that had an MSRP of $73,000. Three years and 20,000 miles later? Well, I bet the used car discount isn’t going to seem as much as you’d think.

2019 Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG

Well. Okay then. What we are looking at today is a 2019 Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG with some unique modifications. Some very unique modifications. As you can see, extra body work has been added along with some very wide wheels. The suspension has also been removed and replaced with an air bag system and modified control arms. Did I mention it rides on Toyo R888 tires? Let me try to make sense of this.

2019 Mercedes-Benz G550

The new W463.2 Mercedes-Benz G-Class has been out about three years now and they literally can not make enough of them. At almost every Mercedes dealer around the world, as soon as a new G comes in, it is usually gone before it can get comfortable and/or the sales manager hot shots it around town. You might be saying “What about all of them for sale on eBay?” and you are correct, but most of those used examples are still at sticker or above sticker. For that price, people just would rather buy the new one, especially if those people were lugging around the first-generation W463 for the last 15 or so years.

Thankfully Mercedes was ready for the influx of new buyers and had all the little treats for those willing to pay for them. No few than 36 different colors are offered, ranging from standard no-charge up to $6,500. It doesn’t stop there. Nine different sets of wheels, 29 different leather colors, and seven different accent trims. If you want to order a black G with black wheels and a black leather interior, reevaluate your decision. Today, we have a 2019 up for sale in Arizona finished in the cool designo Manufaktur Sea Blue Metallic. Now we are talking.

2019 Volkswagen Golf R Color Spektrum Program

Back in April, I looked at a rather unique 2018 VW Golf R that was ordered through Volkswagen’s Color Spektrum program. Well, wouldn’t you know it? Another has come up for sale. And this one is….well, very green.

The shade is called Cliff Green, and unlike the last time, this one hasn’t been put through the ringer. There weren’t many changes from ’18 to the ’19 model year – ’19s lost four peak horsepower, and essentially came fully loaded – your only option was the 7-speed DSG, which this car doesn’t have. Oh, and that special paint, of course. With a scant 100 miles on the odometer, this one is essentially as-new. What does one of these rare Rs cost today?

2020 Porsche 718 Cayman GT4

Well, that didn’t take long. A few weeks ago I took a look at the new Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 in England in anticipation of them finally hitting US dealers, and it looks like they are here. Production is in full swing and it even looks like Porsche added the paint to sample option to the configurator (a $12,830 option!), so it won’t be long until we start seeing some wild colors. However, we knew these cars were due soon. What I didn’t expect were dealers already playing their games and getting off on technicalities to skirt to rules. Let me explain.
