A few days ago, The Smoking Tire compared the 911 Turbo S to the Viper. They made a point I've been thinking about. Would you rather buy a newer super car, or spend the same on an older super car? Example: the Ferrari 246 Dino GTS and the Ferrari 458 Spider. Both cost $325,000, made by Ferrari, and are open topped. The 458 obviously has much more performance, but will depreciate hundreds of dollars for every mile you drive it. The Dino has less performance, but will likely appreciate. What is your choice?
