They were never given a chance

1993 Volkswagen Corrado SLC 2dr Coupe
Corrados these days are a cult followed car. They are known as one of the best VWs ever built. However, its base price in the early 90s was a lot and you could have gotten a base entry Porsche for it. They are often called the Poor Man's Porsche and the name sticks. With very nice handling and 0-60 speed in the 5 second area, it makes the Corrado a car of this era. The great things include the speed sensitive rear spoiler. However, being a 17 year old car at the most, expect to pay quite a bit for upkeep on one of these rare sport coupes that was never given a chance. Also, in good running condition expect to pay ~ $5,000-$9,000 plus a few maintenance bills.
Stands out, gets a lot of attention by the public. Speed sensitive spoiler. Outstanding handling. Good fuel efficiency at about 30 MPG hwy and 25 MPG city. Very comfortable. Rear seats fold down giving you equivalent space as a small SUV. Very light, meaning very fast.
Get coilovers and lower the car more. Get timing chains in VR6 done every 80-100 thousand miles. Install B3 Passat moonroof, direct replacement, more durable.
