    Patience is the key in these scenarios: Keep an eye on the small ads and estate sales.... There's always going to be one 'tucked away' unmolested... you just need to be 'there' when it emerges.

    Only a prototype; but, could this be the way of the future ?..... It's not a million miles away from the Sci-Fi of not so long ago.
    I mean it looks pretty much like a tesla so yeah, the future, but also the present!

    Have you driven any E9x M3s? V8, RWD, manual trans. Generally reliable, throttle actuators and rod bearings can be issues as you get some miles on them.

    I drove an E93 with 18k miles yesterday. Other than a clunk in the top (assume it needs to be adjusted), it was a great car. No bottom end (like my E60 V10 M5), but just a great driving car. Hardtop convertible is heavy, but I have a real car for speed. Just looking for something more daily driver-able and fun at street legal speeds.

    Same dealer had some cool M coupes (and several low mile E46 M3s). A 2007 Interlagos Blue with 14k miles and a 2001 silver S54 car with 48k miles; both cars were $44k. Values on these are really high right now.

    Pennsylvania. My XK8 has actually been camped at his house for about a year. So the T-Bird is sort of a cousin to the Jag.
