Besides my thoughts that I actually posted in that thread, the "Cool cars you should actually be able to buy" topic also got me thinking about these two:

I want to vote for the E24 over and over again. Can I?

Also, it should be diamondschwarz or midnight blue.

928, if you're considering a later model (facelift), all the failures of the first-series 928 where sorted out then.

I saw an early 928 at auction a few weeks ago. Looked great, it had blue chequered seats with blue leather trim, and the interior was quintessentially eighties, with large buttons. It was a great looking machine, and you can't say no to a V8.

Would I buy one, at that age? Probably not.

I have no idea why, but I have a serious amount of WANT for the Beemer

The Porsche, while awesome,loses out because it's not a "proper" Porsche. Flat 6 > V8

Or should I say Porsche Flat 6 > Porsche V8

I love the looks of the BMW, and if I were looking for a car, it would be high on my list.

That said, the later 928's -- the S4's and newer -- have truly awe inspiring performance even by today's standards. In their era, they were one of the best supercars available.

But you had to live with the looks...and the stigma (then) of water cooled, front engine Porsche, so their value has plummeted. They depreciated FASTER than typical used cars, if anything.
