            This is the only option really as there will be no further depreciation on any AU Falcon variants, they are at rock bottom value.

                The problem with most of the cars mentioned is its not just depreciation, its the ridiculous European servicing/repair costs.

                So I'd go something Japanese, ~20 years old and not sold in the US, meaning the Yanks will get a stiffy about once they're 25 years old.

                  All good suggestions thus far. I especially agree with the E39 M5 as being a winner. No more NA V8 RWD Bimmers, and they, like the E46 M3 are peak purity M cars for mine. None on carsales right now however.

                  The V10 M5's are great in theory, but getting very spendy when it goes wrong and they have single clutch SMG. Do not like single clutch automated manuals. No one does.

                  Got an Exige already thanks! Don't particularly want to daily it, but no reason you couldn't. I think the current S3 Exiges (Supercharged V6 2013 onwards) have a little way to depreciate yet, but they can't drop too much further, as the older S2 Exiges are not going down in value and are 50 - 70k depending on mods/km/condition. So an S3 can't really drop below 80 - 90k I'd have thought, as most people would go for the later version as being better. Different, yes, better, dunno. Early Elises have bottomed in value and are on the way back up in value (slowly).

                  I tend to agree with the observation that the 10-15 year old mark is best buying for any car that is a bit rare/interesting. For a common not-that-special car the age increases out to more like 20 years. But given I'm talking mainly daily use here, not sure I want to go too old and end up with another 'project' rather than just an interesting car.

                    Manual ones exist but way less common (possibly not in aus?)

                    On this basis I think the intersection of Japanese, rare and interesting is your sweet spot, and they aren't making any more evos...

                    you can always hear them when they break and they stop the engine immediately so you can't do any more damage.

                      US market only, apparently.

                      Soft roaders represent an excellent compromise between the needs of the hardcore 4x4 user and the convenience of a city hatchback. Its clear to see why they have become so popular in todays society.

                          I thought the concept was that it isn't the driving equivalent of having Mike Tyson constantly using your testicles as a pair of those springy hanging punchy-ball things?

                            There is some thing fucked with the Porsche market right now with regards the 991.1 GT3 . The engines in them are known to go bang and will be out of warranty soon enough. Fuck paying for that repair. They should have further to go but it seems the lack of supply of new cars is maybe artificially supporting the price. The 991.2 would be my pick. The release of the 992 and return of supply might soften them a touch.

                            E39 M5 would be epic. V10 M5 would be heart and wallet breaking. Something more analogue that still offered the creature comforts for daily use would be the sweet spot. Also like the idea of a VF GTS for daily skids.
