I like the thinking. There aren't a bunch of older cars I really like. Most of the domestics have poor interiors, Japanese cars don't offer something I want and I'm not into used German cars. I want a bunch of what has recently come out in the last few years but will be waiting for those to drop in value.

I'm in the same boat as you, I think. The C7 Grand Sport, Camaro 1LE (newest version) and Mustang GT350 are the top three on my radar over the next few years. I could go for a 981 Cayman S (or, better yet, GTS) if the right one came along.

I'd actually try an E90/92 M3, Caddy ATS-V or Lexus IS-F as well, since my commute is very short (and straight) these days and a "serious" sportscar doesn't really stand out in that kind of driving. I basically have three right-hand turns and drive less than 5 miles to work. Not a single curve along the way...

Those are interesting. I see the value of the C7 but am just not a fan.

My want list is
5th gen Viper
GT350R
Camaro Z28 (when it's next out)
Nissan GTR (performance and AWD)
Challenger Hellcat Manual
Jeep SRT

5th Gen Viper would be an amazing car to own, I think - just not sure if they'll drop in price very much (I haven't followed them at all). It's very rainy here in Vancouver and I'm not sure a 645 hp car makes much sense (not that such a car ever truly "makes sense" ).

Local dealer has a used GT350R with about 1000 miles and was asking $103K for it (CAD)...

^^ that's a bit much for a car MSRP of 65k USD. Learning the lesson of patients buying the next car.
