Dealer markups are only because the car is new. Prices will stabilize.

Between the two, I would prefer a car I can use everyday and drive to the track on occassion rather than one that will have to be stored for most of the year or kept at the track garage.

Nice car but for that price my garage would look like:

Subaru STi - $40k (for rallycross)

Fully prepped STS2 class Miata - $20k (for autocross)

BMW 135i - $35k (daily driver)

Dodge Challenger - $40k (for the Woodward Dream Cruise)

The joy of owning a 4-car garage at 25 - Priceless.

Ah well, if only I had $150k to spend.
