PORSCHE BOXTER AND OR 1990 COUPE QUATTRO
I've joined the conversation a bit late- but I hope I can still catch the
tail end of it.
A "Buddy" of ours races for Porsche and can get me a Boxter at 6% over
factory cost (13% below dealer invoice) and I would be able to take delivery
of the car in January, ahead of the pack, without having to pay for the
"New-Car-Hype" dealer surcharge. Since another "Buddy" in the group just got
a C4S (a much better car, I know) the a local dealer has also agreed to put
us on the list for a "first-10" car without paying the surcharge, but paying
So- you can see the problem. I own a very cherry 1990 Coupe Quattro
(pearl/black with 54K miles and still under warranty) which I am working on
upgrading. Ultimately, I don't have enough money ($12K) to get the
horespower I would like out of the car. It is a dog, and I'm tired of Dodge
Cravans beating me off the line. But it has one of the most beautiful butts
in the business, and I love the way it feels (or will feel, once Eric F gets
his act together and ships me some shocks!). The 2 seater is a bit
impractical as an only car.
What do I do? Keep a rare car, take advantage of the Boxter deal and give my
Coupe to a lover on the List? Move to Europe and buy an S2? Sue Audi for
not importing the good stuff? Buy the boxter, sell it for $50K, drop a 200T
engine in my coupe? Buy a Ford?
I need therapy.
1990 Coupe Quattro. Nice car.
