Best dang thing I ever did. I have a buddy who is into selling used Porsches and a dealer had the Vig on a trade in, all they wanted was to break even which was $18,500. The car is ultra-fast, corners like crazy, and I'm getting 30MPG! Can someone tell me why I would want to buy a new car? Is there a car built today with the Viggens performance level that can achieve 27-30MPG with regularity? I haven't seen one. The 9-3SS looked good but its $$$, gets less milage than a Vig, and is slower. Not knocking it, just not sure why I would want to pay $600 for 4 years or so. BTW- Only problems were a SID (warranty replace), DI Cassette(recall), and Cat(recall).
