I recall a column from Ezra Dyer several years about buying an M3, sight unseen, and without ever having actually driven an M3. The decision was based solely on the mythology of the name.
So, what's one car you would clean out your savings to buy, without ever actually ever being behind the wheel or knowing what it's like to drive? I'm not necessarily talking about buying sight unseen. Just that you KNOW this model is amazing and you don't even need to drive it to know you'd love it.
Does that make sense? For instance, I'd straight up trade my GTV6 for a clean-ish S30 240Z. I've always wanted one and I know I'd love driving one.
