The 2018 Ford Mustang GT offers a ton of performance in a fairly affordable package. The GT pumps out 460 horsepower which is enough to cause plenty of trouble when a teenage owner leaves a Cars and Coffee event.

The Mustang GT is a quick car by any standard and provides a lot of performance for the money. Ford claims a 0-60 mph time of under 4 seconds for the 10-speed automatic version of the ‘Stang. But is this just a case of a manufacturer being over optimistic?

The Lotus Exige is an ultra lightweight sports car. Unlike other automakers that offer as many features as they can, Lotus asks how little can we put into a car. For those looking on the used market, the result is a car that weighs in at just 2,089 lbs (depending on the year).

That means the small performance machine weighs about the same as a postage stamp. With the Exige in S 260 Sport form, you get a car with 257 horsepower. That makes for a vehicle with a really good power to weight ratio, but how does it compare to other high performance machines.

We love cars, but are they a good investment? Should you dump your stock portfolio and plan to use classic cars for your retirement? Why do so many wealthy people invest in cars? These questions and questions like them are all over the internet, but is it a good idea to buy an automobile now to hope you can sell it for a large profit at a later date?

The answer to if cars are a good investment is more complex than it may first appear. We know that with a few exceptions a modern car will keep depreciating for about 30 years and in some cases longer.
