Default Unaffordable dream car/realstically affordable dream car thread, redo. - 07-20-2013, 09:48 | posts: 6,716 | Location: Portland, Oregon

Since the old thread got the lost in space, I decided to make another one because I'm always looking at cars. Plus it's kool to see what others like from around the world.

A new unrealstic dream car for me is the Alfa Romeo 4C. Base price is $70K and limited to 3,200 units.


And affordable dream car: Aston Martin V12 Vantage.
Just look at this post for $31K! Even for a 2002, it still looks like a modern car.

My dream (realistic) is still the C6 Corvette Zo6.

I still add the Crawford Subaru BRZ as another potential realistic car.

I'm generally not a fan of forced induction, but ~500hp from a car this size would be so much fun.

Adding this to affordable dream cars: BMW 850i
I've seen them for sale for under $10K, which is awesome for a V12.

as I said before I own my realistic dream car at the moment. C6 Corvette. Could have went Z06 but I had my reasons for not going that route. LS3 is still a beast for a daily driver.

Here's my ride...

2010. 6spd manual







Dream car would be the Pagani Zonda

I tried to buy an Evo X last year when I was car shopping but once I saw what the car insurance would have been I decided against it. So instead I just got the normal Lancer AWD version.

But the Evo is still my realistic dream car. They are so much fun to drive.


Not affordable? Either a Ferrari F50 or Mclaren F1 GTR

Oh, I remembered a car that I still want that I can actually afford, a Lotus Esprit.
Seeing them for sale around $23K now.



Here's one with under 13K miles for a 1995.

Also a good contender for an unaffordable dream car...

My license wouldn't last 5 minutes if I drove a car that sounded like that
