Yes, I know the Lotus Exige S is a tiny car but it's an awesome ride. I've seen low mileage ( 7500 miles), 07', 08' models go for $55,000.

That's just crazy. Possible repair costs are definitely something to think about it before you decide to buy a used Ferrari.
Exactly. I talked about this a few months ago. There's definitely a difference between going to a small, independent auto body repair shop, an industry standard body shop, and a high end body shop. I have enough experience in auto body repair that small body shops won't cut it for me and industry shops like what dealerships use take entirely too damn long. The high end body shop I use is on a whole different level. They get into details like perfect OEM color matching that actually looks better than OEM, replacing and calibrating headlights instead of just sticking garbage aftermarket lights in, and replacing the entire damaged part instead of repairing the damaged area. I'm actually looking for an older house with enough garage space, so I can do all my own auto body/mechanical work in-house. Save thousands that way.

Why not a low mileage 08 Porsche Carrera CS or CS4 Guards Red. The Guards Red color (freaking classic) alone is a head turner or Speed Yellow. Plus you get the last year of the aspirating engine with a mean exhaust note ESPECIALLY a manual. Don't be a paddle shifter poser (my username is in reference to watches).
Or get a Turbo, not as good exhaust note, but big ass spoiler in rear.
Plus they are track ready and handle like its on rails.

Manual watches are better then automatic, Porsche PDK auto is better and faster, and I think you think you know what your talking about but I think what you think is wrong

Wrong. I will talk circles around you in watches or on same level if you happen to know a lot. Also, meaning automatic instead of quartz battery. Lastly, everyone with a brain knows PDK is faster. Guess what? If you ain't racing it who cares, manual is 100X more fun. I want to push my rpm's I can w/o auto shifting me out. I want to down shift hard I do not get auto shifted down. Just like watches auto/manual have soul, quartz lazy lifeless.

I think 911s are fantastic cars, but in most areas that are not flyover states, they are as common as a BMW 3-series. They just don't have that exotic feel or look. However, if someone wants a Porsche that looks like an exotic and is roughly $60K, I highly recommend a previous generation (987) Boxster Spyder:

The 987 Spyder is the only Boxster I like, good call. The standard Boxster looks 100x better as a coupe aka Cayman IMHO. Besides the spoiler which I hate on the Cayman I think aesthetically is better than 911. That said I have a 911 S because it's bigger, more powerful, track ready, and classic Porsche (depending who you ask ;-)
My kids are young enough to sit in back and fit, which has worked out great for now, LOL.
