>>After reading the posts, probably think about something cheaper - like a Honda S2000. Figure if I hang onto it for fifteen years - may only depreciate $1000/year - pretty cheap entertainment - but I'll think of it as consumption, NOT as an investment.

That's one car buying decision you will not regret. I've had a red S2000 as my daily driver for the past 3 years and it's still an absolute blast to drive. I have yet to find anything this side of a 911 that I would rather own (though the M3 comes close). I've heard people speculate that the intrinsic long-term value for this car will be near $15k (presuming it remains in good shape). If you can find a clean used one in the mid 20s, depreciation would be pretty inexpensive over the long term. BTW, I recommend a pre-2004 model for the screaming 9000rpm engine.

If you're really thinking of getting one, pop in at www.s2ki.com and say hello!
