2008 Smart Fortwo: Dumb Money

October 29, 2008

As our man Jacobs reported recently, Angelenos just can't get enough of the Smart. Here's a shot of the local dealership mentioned in that post. Want your very own 2008 Fortwo Passion Coupe, same model as ours, with a pristine 21 miles on the clock? "Bring money," as Snake Doc likes to say -- $25,825, to be precise.

But here's what really got me. While I was staring incredulously at that price tag, another one caught my eye.

I strolled over to take a look. It was a mint 1999 Porsche 911 Carrera, six-speed manual, with 59,835 miles. Yours for $574 more than the crappiest car on the market.
