Default Alfa Romeo 4c or Porsche 718 Cayman

Test drove the Alfa Romeo 4c and was good, but very small like a lotus! My brother in law wanted to buy an RCF but I told him no! I have the only RCF around my area and would not want to see a twin on the road lol... What are some good 2 door options under $100,000?
Thanks

Don't be selfish! lol. But under $100k aside from the common M4, C63, RS5, RCF, etc, take a look at the Audi TT-RS, Jag F-Type S, and Lexus LC. The TT-RS would be the fastest out of the bunch.

One of my friend just bought an used 2016 GTR with 9k miles on it for under $70k. Or you can find a new GTR for around $90k-ish. It will probably out perform anything on the road and surprisingly the interior was very nice and fit and finish was good too.

How many launch controls were used in that 9k though

Under $100,000 I'd go with a slightly used 911. If he wants new, Cayman.

Like others said, don't be selfish, if he likes and wants the RCF, he should get one, just make sure its a different color than yours.

That's something you could easily determine in the pre-purchase inspection. Regardless, Nissan corrected the launch control related issues back in 2009 and reflashed the early 2009 model year to prevent further issues (LC2), and they started warrantying it in 2010.

$70K for a 2016 is a pretty tremendous deal.

GT-R R35 FAQ

GT-R would be a solid choice, and a somewhat practical vehicle for daily use. Used 911 would also be a solid contender IMO.

Nope, From Palm Springs Nissan, Dealer wanted $75k and but lowered to $69k I believe. Financed through them with extended warranty. The vehicle was supposedly leased by the an owner or CEO of the dealership. BTW, at the time they had about 5 used GTR's on the lot.

It's legit guys, no need to fuss over it.

It sure is, very worth it. But I also heard that the new GTR's are selling very cheap as well.
