Over at Hoovie’s Garage, Tyler has unveiled the new look for his Porsche 996 Turbo. The high performance forced induction vehicle was originally the silver color that was extremely popular in the late 90’s and early 2000’s.

The problem with this is simply that the car doesn’t stand out. One option is to repaint the car, but to match the original paint quality is very expensive.

Maserati Ghibli

The Maserati Ghibli is the most affordable Maserati that you can buy new. The car offers very good performance from a twin-turbocharged V6. It is at home being driven quickly, but it does so with some sacrifices.

The ride is harsh when you are just wanting to drive around town and the steering offers much less feel than you would like. These two combined with a traction control system that seems confused at time lets down the otherwise good driving experience.

However, there is a bright side to the Ghibli.

The Porsche 968 was a stop gap vehicle. At first Porsche had intended it to be the next evolution of the 944 as an S3. When it was decided that the German performance car maker would produce the mid-engined Boxster, the 968 took the place as the entry level vehicle for a short time until the roadster would be ready.

The 968 may have been a vehicle that was planned for a short production run, but it was the pinnacle of Porsche’s front-engined inline four-cylinder sports cars. With a 3.0-liter four cylinder in front the stock vehicle offered 236 horsepower and could launch from 0-60 mph in 6 seconds.

The Porsche 911 GT2 RS is the fastest 911 that money can buy. It offers jaw dropping supercar performance and starts at just under $300,000.

That price isn’t cheap, but for a car that can lap the Nürburgring in just 6:47.25, it isn’t bad. To put this in perspective, the Porsche 918 Spyder lapped the same circuit in 6:57. That’s the same 918 Spyder that started at a bit under $1,000,000.

A Burning Ferrari Is Too Common

Burnt Ferrari F355

The Ferrari F355 is one of the best looking cars ever to wear a prancing horse. The analog driving experience is something you just can’t find in modern cars and then there is that exhaust sound.

The one downside, besides the high price of entry, is the maintenance costs. Due to the need for major engine out servicing about every five years, even if you can afford to purchase the car, you may not be able to afford it.

All of this makes it less attainable and then there is the chance that it will burn to a crisp.
