You don’t have to spend a fortune on a car, to look like you spent a fortune on a car.

Depreciation can be a beautiful thing—especially when it means you can get behind the wheel of a big-dollar car on the relative cheap. Below, we’ll look at 10 cars, with many originally priced for folks with money to burn, but which are available today for a steal.

2017 Porsche 718 Cayman S Review
May 18, 2017 - 11:04 AM - by AutoGuide.com


Quote:
Fresh from spending a week with the 2017 Porsche 718 Cayman S, I’m happy to report that the future of sports cars is far from doom and gloom.

Quite the contrary, actually. In fact, this Cayman S is proof that things are going to be just fine. While electrons are being added to everything from minivans to McLarens, there’s no cumbersome hybrid powertrain to clutter up the car with extra weight. Instead, this thing’s all motor — albeit a much smaller one than before. But that counts for something in an era hell-bent on hybridization.

Glossing right over the base version and its 2.0-liter turbo engine, this Cayman S still brings the goods. Almost a liter of displacement has been taken out of the engine this time around, not to mention two cylinders, leaving the Cayman S with a mere 2.5-liter flat four to do the job. In the tug of war between driving enjoyment and environmental responsibility, tiny turbo engines are the compromise enthusiasts must live with.

New 2019 Porsche Cayman GT4 Spied Running the ‘Ring
May 09, 2017 - 10:01 AM - by AutoGuide.com

As seen with Alien, Spiderman, Transformers, Deadpool, Pirates of the Caribbean, Blade Runner and Guardians of the Galaxy, all our favorite things are getting a sequel or reboot and that includes the awesome Porsche Cayman GT4.

As these recent spy photos show, it looks like the GT4 is coming back now that Porsche is done tinkering with the 911 GT3. While the Cayman was recently given a turbocharged flat-four engine (along with a new numerical name: 718) it’s likely that the high-speed editions of the mid-engined coupe will remain naturally aspirated. As always, a manual transmission will likely be the only one available.

While the last Cayman GT4 used a 3.8-liter flat six, some rumors are saying this model will sport a bigger engine like the 4.0-liter six-cylinder used in the 911 GT3. It’ll have to be detuned in this model so it doesn’t encroach on the 911’s territory, but expect it to make more than the 385 hp that the previous GT4 model had. If you need more proof that a new engine is in the works, the shoddy exhaust setup in this mule makes it seem the automaker is testing something different.

Porsche is also working on the vehicle’s suspension, as the car is sporting foam in the wheel arches and looks unusually wide for a Cayman. And what better place to test a new lightweight mid-engined sports car than the world famous Nurburgring?

Sports car fanatics went nuts for the previous lightweight GT4 and it sold out completely, so a new one will likely be just as popular. While a few questions remain, the most important ones are: when do we get one, and will it end up being called a GT4 or a GT4 RS?

Why Porsche’s GT Boss Doesn’t Care About Nurburgring Lap Times
Apr 20, 2017 - 9:00 AM - by AutoGuide.com

Trying to one-up each other must be a favorite past time of automakers, especially when it comes to Nurburgring lap times.

Although it was once considered the holy grail of performance specs, Porsche seems to be stepping back from setting record Nurburgring lap times for one simple reason: it’s just not that fun.

During an interview with AutoGuide.com after the North American debut of the 2018 Porsche 911 GT3, which is now available with a manual transmission option, Porsche GT boss <span class="s1">Andreas Preuninger shed some light on why they brought back the manual.

'There are a lot of people who aren’t looking at the stopwatch when they’re on the track and they just want the interaction and they want a driver’s car,' he said at the New York Auto Show, saying that making the GT3 more fun was the main goal. 'This is the reason why we left the route of being the quickest on the Nurburgring and only thinking about lap times. I don’t care that the competition is a little bit faster around the ‘Ring.'

Next Porsche GT Model Could Go Hybrid, Electric or ‘Whatever’
Apr 19, 2017 - 1:18 PM - by AutoGuide.com

Seeing as Porsche 911 design has been essentially the same for decades, the German automaker is certainly stubborn about some things.

It seems that powertrains, however, is something Porsche can actually be flexible with.

Speaking with AutoGuide.com during the North American debut of the new 2018 Porsche 911 GT3 at the New York Auto Show, Andreas Preuninger, head of the Porsche GT department, said that as long as the German brand is better than its competitors, it doesn’t matter what’s powering its cars.
