13 Pricey Sports Cars and Their Affordable Alternatives

Porsche recently unveiled the latest iteration of the quintessential sports car – the 992.2-gen Porsche 911. We predict you’ll be hearing a lot about this sports car for a long time. Even folks who’ve never seen the inside of the car will have plenty to say about the 911’s departure from its traditional naturally-aspirated flat-sixes to a hybrid drive system. It marks the first time in over six decades that Porsche would equip a road-going 911 with a hybrid powertrain. It probably won’t matter what you think of this shift if you can’t fork over around $115,000 to get one. It doesn’t have to be a sad reality, though. There’s always an Emira for every Evija: A 370Z for every 8 Series. Indeed, the market brims with alternatives that capture these elite sports cars’ spirit, performance, and excitement at a fraction of the cost.

Dave Ramsey Says Millionaires Drive These 10 Cars: Are They Worth the Price?

First things first: Who is Dave Ramsey, anyway? He’s just America’s favorite financial guru, New York Times bestselling author, TV Show host, and nationally syndicated radio personality. The man has nearly one million followers on X (formerly Twitter), so when he talks, people listen. Last month, Mr. Ramsey made an X post that particularly reverberated in the automotive world. The post implied that contrary to common perception, millionaires don’t drive flashy cars. Without going into details about where he got his data, Ramsey made a list of the top ten car brands driven by millionaires, and there was not a Rolls-Royce, Bentley, or Lamborghini represented. If you live in upper-middle-class neighborhoods where parking lots are dotted with Teslas and Maseratis, you might find Ramsey’s claims a bit too hard to swallow. That’s a debate for another time. Today, we focus on determining if the cars on Ramsey’s list are worth their prices.

2022 Mercedes-Benz C-Class is NEW and here now!

We spent a few days in the new C 300 and fell hard for its baby-S-Class tech, comfort and luxury, not to mention a fun-to-drive sedan experience! #cclass #mercedesbenz #c300 The modernized driver cockpit inherited a lot of technology and aesthetics from the newly designed S-Class revealed in 2021. The infotainment, gauge cluster and user experience system is all new. This means less buttons, no more touch pad, and a cleaner interior overall. The tilted vertical media screen is the central point for all climate, media, and settings for the C300. While it may take you a minute to get used to not having touch controls for something like the dual automatic climate, I adapted quickly and fell in love with its simplicity. The new C-Class comes in three trim levels: Premium, Exclusive and Pinnacle. The vehicle I drove for two days was a Pinnacle trim with every option you could want, so I was happily spoiled. The C-Class Premium trim comes nicely equipped with the new generation MBUX infotainment and voice control system, new displays and finger print sensor technology. Heated front seats, leather steering wheel, LED lighting, sunroof and 18" wheels are also standard. The Exclusive trim ads active parking assistance, surround view camera, enhanced ambient lighting, and wireless charging plus an astonishingly good Burmester 3D Surround System. The top Pinnacle trim adds navigation, head-up display and augmented video for navigation. My test model had the optional plush Nappa leather seating and AMG Line cosmetic additions.
