So here’s my opinion, based on my own extended spreadsheet, bang for the buck calculations based on stats and costs, and general opinion on the ads:
CHOICE OF THE BACHELOR (heart):
Znopresk Zeta. Like, right away. Take my money, take my girlfriend, gimme the keys. Screw back seats when you got a mid engine AWD car with GTI punch. And if there’s a turbo version, take my right kidney too.
CHOICE OF THE BACHELOR (wallet):
ABR Sennler SS. Cheapest to buy, cheapest to own, drivability/sportiness/reliability on point. So good it’s the benchmark for my “bang for the buck” calculations. Too bad it lacks in the exterior design department.
CHOICE OF THE FAMILY (Heart):
BAM Bavaria. For looks and PSSSSHHHhtututututu. Also for being really really close to mine in pricing, depreciation and general stats (except Safety which is through the roof for the Bavaria)
CHOICE OF THE FAMILY (Wallet):
Estrogé Pintade. Most decent stats for 4+ seats. Good in the stats that matter (safe for comfort but it’s still above average)
the Kimura Kohala ain’t far behind, if only it didn’t lack in power. But that ad, tho.
JHW Stiletto GT
Quite simply the most expensive car to own (while not even being the most expensive to buy), and doesn’t back it up with numbers you can’t find in cheaper cars. Only car on the list on which you lose more than 50K after 5 years of ownership + resale.
Ramthecowy’s troll car
Tried too hard to be sporty at the expense of literally anything else. Also, dem running costs.
35K+ range, and backs it up with one of the worst practicality value of the lot and the worst drivability.
Like everybody else, this is just my 2 eurocents.
