Affordable Ferraris That Could Make Great Future Investments

Affordable Ferraris That Could Make Great Future Investments

These 8 cars from Ferrari will not break the bank...too much

Whether you are a car enthusiast or not, it’s common knowledge that owning a Ferrari signifies certain success in life. Of course, owning a Ferrari comes at a great financial cost (and sometimes more, if your wife does not approve), so it’s better to make sure you can afford one in the first place, before taking the leap. That said, even Ferraris aren’t safe from depreciation, unless they are highly exclusive, and these few models, listed below, are a perfect example.

Maintenance costs can still be sinfully expensive, but on the plus side, some of these cars have already bottomed out in terms of price, which means they could be a good investment in the long run.

The Story Behind 9 Cars Porsche Is Probably Glad You Forgot About

These are some of the weirdest Porsche cars you have ever seen

Porsche is a brand with enormous history, significance, and racing pedigree. Needless to say, their cars don’t deserve much of an introduction, simply because of the cult status they’ve achieved. This, of course, extends to their mainstream models and, more often than not, their respective limited editions. With that being said, there are some Porsche projects that, for one reason or another, did not come to fruition or simply remained in obscurity. This is exactly the case with the below-mentioned cars.

10 Highly Anticipated Cars That Were Complete Let-Downs

10 Highly Anticipated Cars That Were Complete Let-Downs

These cars should’ve fared better than they did

There’s a saying in the auto industry that “every new idea is a good idea.” There’s a kernel of truth in that because the best and most popular cars are all born from ideas. But there’s a flip side to that saying, too. Just because every new idea is a good idea, it doesn’t mean that these good ideas end up as good products. Time and again, we’ve seen automakers take a promising concept and lose the plot completely when the production version comes out. Every company has experienced something along these lines, but we’ve singled out ten vehicles that serve as the best examples of highly anticipated cars that turned out to be let-downs. Granted, some of these vehicles had their moments in the sun, but those moments were fleeting. In the end, we all remember them for what they could’ve been. They’re not necessarily lemons, but they still leave a sour taste in our mouths.

7 Unlikely Cars With Porsche DNA That You Didn't Know About

7 Unlikely Cars With Porsche DNA That You Didn’t Know About

Porsche’s financial situation in the 1990s was the reason for some of the most iconic performance cars, as well as some not so iconic ones

The automotive industry is a dynamic one and collaborations between different car manufacturers are not that uncommon. Porsche is a name associated with great craftsmanship, great engineering, and tradition - all traits the 911 encompasses better than any other car. However, Porsche was not always doing well financially and, in the 1990s, they were willing to lend their expertise to other companies. Here are some of the brand’s most known and some less-known joint ventures, some of which may surprise you.

Best Naturally Aspirated Engines in Human History

Best Naturally Aspirated Engines in Human History

The best of those that can do without forced induction

When BMW rolled the 2002 Turbo towards the tail end of 1973, in the middle of the fuel crisis, everybody viewed it as insanity. Still, as years rolled by, the classic adage that said ’there’s no replacement for displacement’ seemed to hold true for at least some manufacturers. However, ever stringent pollution regulations and the need for increased efficiency pushed carmakers to embrace forced induction more broadly and strangled naturally aspirated engines one by one. Nowadays, big players such as BMW don’t even offer a naturally aspirated engine across their entire lineups and even Ferrari is all but ditching the engines that made the Prancing Horse legendary through their expertly honed soundtrack.

It’s not necessarily that naturally aspirated engines are going to go extinct in a matter of a handful of years but it’s clear that the performance levels achieved by turbocharged or supercharged units simply can’t be matched by a naturally aspirated engine. On top of that, an engine that uses forced induction is more economical due to its smaller capacity and friendlier with the environment which - in the eyes of everyone but some purists - is a win-win situation. While we love turbochargers and superchargers, we thought we’d take a look at some of the history’s best naturally aspirated engines at a time when fewer and fewer manufacturers still offer them - at least in performance cars. We assure you they are proper bangers!

21 Awesome Hot Hatches That Americans Can't Drive

21 Awesome Hot Hatches That Americans Can’t Drive

Yes, twenty one

The world of hot hatches is far more interesting than what we in the U.S. can ever fathom. The Europeans are particularly fond of them (the Brits especially), which led to the development of some of the most amazing cars. Some of them have never even appeared on U.S. shores. Believe it or not, I have found 21 awesome hot hatches from the past five years that have never set their tires on this side of the pond.

While compiling this list, I have come to a conclusion that buyers and drivers in the U.S. are usually really predictable. Apart from some producers who do not sell in the U.S. at all, international safety (UNECE) standards for car production are the ones to blame for a shortage of some of these cars.

We’re not compliant with those standards as we have our own set of rules called the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards. In short, a disparity like this makes it very expensive for car producers to create two different versions of a car. And, that is exactly what is needed if you want to sell the same car in the U.S. and in the rest of the world.

Nevertheless, walk through this 4,853 horsepower list and imagine what your life would be like if some of these hot hatches could actually come here.

Top 10 One-Seater Cars You Should Have In Your Garage

Top 10 One-Seater Cars You Should Have In Your Garage

I wish Morgan made a single-seat 3 Wheeler

Two-seater vehicle aren’t exactly practical, but this layout is usually associated with sports cars, so you sacrifice practicality for fun and speed. Things become even more complicated with a single-seat layout, but this means a lighter construction and more freedom to improve aerodynamics.

The fastest race cars out there are usually single-seaters, so a road-legal vehicle with just one seat is a hot dream. Personally, I’m a big fan of the Morgan 3 Wheeler, but since this car has two seats it doesn’t have a place on this list. But here’s 10 single-seat vehicles that should be fun to own either for their performance specs or compact dimensions.

Great Alternatives to the BMW Z4

The new Z4 is certainly a great car, but is it the best you can get for the money?

The BMW Z4 is a bit like the black sheep of the family. It’s part of the BMW lineup but it’s sort of there because it has to be. The fact that the new Toyota Supra is based on it, does not help either, as its Japanese twin managed to steal the show, with its controversial use of a BMW engine and platform. This does not mean that the new Z4 is a bad car, on the contrary. But we think that all alternatives should be considered. Our list has something for everybody, including a surprise.

7 Striking Zagato-Designed cars from the past two decades

7 Striking Zagato-Designed cars from the past two decades

It was very hard to pick just seven...

Zagato is the modern equivalent of a coachbuilder and is based in Milan, Italy. It’s been in business since 1919, and over the years it has established itself as a creator of very dramatic looking cars. It has its own design center, and all its creations have a certain Zagato look that you can start to recognize once you’ve seen a wider selection of their cars.

This look has been continued and refined over the decades, and you can spot the visual links between their very latest creations and ones from half a century ago. They have made so many different cars, that it wouldn’t do them justice to try to pick the most notable ones from their nearly 100-year history, so in order to keep things fairly concise for the purpose of this article, I’ll be trying to pick the most striking and interesting ones from the past 20 years.
