American cars and build quality. Might eliminate a lot of them.

I have a Jaguar V6 F type S.

Great car and relatively frugal to run

Had 2 x C63's and i think they are awesome cars,i do little mileage so it doesnt really bother me about the fuel,although i could get 30mpg out of my C63's on a run.

Pity about the 981 Cayman,i had one of them too and found it was a superb car that costs pennies to run..

Some great suggestions here gents, thank you.
The Jag F types look interesting. Whilst I couldn't live with the looks of a Cayman (subjective I know) I am looking closely at a 981 Boxster S.

Interesting to see this thread pop up.

I want a new 992 to replace my JCW Mini and I need a large estate or SUV to replace our ageing 5-series Touring, which no longer has enough front-and-rear legroom to satisfy our tall horde.

In an ideal world we'd buy a Cayenne to go alongside the 992, but I only have £120k to play with (plus whatever the Mini's worth).

Have been looking at an E-class estate. I suspect the E63's fuel economy will bug me, but if I can get a good second hand E43 or E53 then maybe...

Simplessssssss, 981 Boxster GTS.........if your not into tinkering then it is simply the most fun at “normal” speeds I’ve had in a sports car for many a year, blows a super car out of the water in that respect Wink

I suppose this is becoming a "what car?" thread. I may be seeking a unicorn, but the criteria include the following:
*6 cylinders or more (yes, irrational I know)
*must sound good at low-ish speeds
*decent ride quality
*high build quality (so not a TVR or Mustang)
*not a Lotus since I can't get in and out of them, Evora included
*budget is up to £60k
*must look great (so not a Cayman)
*petrol (I will never buy a diesel again) and ideally manual
*not a water cooled 911, been there done that



I quite like 'what car' threads (well, a lot more than "is it worth it?" and "whats it worth?" threads as I can't play that game, I no longer live in the UKs and I have no idea what a bacon buttie costs in pounds and pennies), but from this list, and given you're already at least a little partial to a Porsche, I'd suggest a Boxster, preferably a special edition, or a Spyder.

Or if I was looking for a new motor, and I struggled with my hip (old climbing injury), I'd have a pretty short short-list, which would have to include an M2 Competition (at least I think it looks good, if a little chunky and slab sided or an Alfa Romeo Giulia quadrifoglio (which looks great and sounds even greater).

I think the baby M car would fit in your budget, as long as you don't want any toys and stuff - I would only want a decent seat and a manual, no need for willy warmers and big screens and auto wipers (if you can't operate your own wipers you shouldn't be driving a motor vehicle).

And the Alfa, well, just have a look at one in deep red with grey rims. Or dark blue with silver rims for the suave Italian Carabinieri look. If that's not a babe magnet, I don't know what is.

Haha, cheers MaxA..........I went back to Porsche in the end, in the form of a 1995 993, which I've started a thread about. Enjoyed the comment about the Alfa as a "babe magnet" though. As a 57 year old bald accountant with an expanding tummy I think any babe would run a mile when she saw me behind the wheel! Fortunately Mrs COB is all the babe I want, or indeed can afford!

Keep up your Mini R53 thread; it's a great read.

Cheers, Mike.

Thanks Mike, much appreciated. The R53 is just so much fun to punt around, it makes tremendous noises, and I still get the odd wave from a girl in a MINI! Wink

I'll now go and see your new 993 thread, many congratulations, problem solved.
