Not intentionally, but I am just as much of a monster Maserati fan as I ever been. I’m getting excited that decent 2013+ models are nearing $37,500. For nearly three years, I’ve said I was going to nab a GranCabrio and it will happen when the timing strikes right. I won’t break my discipline for anything, but it’s torture knowing that a wonderful bad decision is just one worse decision away! Depreciation is a soup and I’m asking for a ladle bit more.
I’ll also admit that if I nail the cost of ownership over 3 years, and have a great experience, then this is going to end up being a gateway drug to attempting an Aston Martin and, eventually, a Ferrari in the waaay distant future.
