Arrow Going to sell my FRS and get something else

I have a very low miles bone stock manual FRS in whiteout pearl that I bought brand new from the dealer, but want to get something else with more power since it’ll be a garage queen. I am thinking something different like a GTR or Shelby Cobra. The new car would be purchased preowned since my budget is 50k max. What do you guys think, or any other car suggestion? TIA

Maintenance as in broken parts if I were to mod it?

I know brakes, tires, oil changes and the regular stuff but is there something that causes the basic maintenance stuff on the gtr to be more expensive than other high performance cars?

Good luck finding an R35 for $50k. Unless it's super high mileage and salvage titled, you're looking more at the $70k and higher with more closer to the $90k mark.

Yeah, I did find some earlier years with around 75k mi for around 60k. Lower mileage is going to be like you said 90k+. The market is crazy rn!

Wow, the US market is wild.. The US has always been a source for importing cheap cars here to sweden. Nowdays it seems like the opposite, can find a couple of pretty nice GT-Rs under 50k usd when i check online.

Trolls do originate from under bridges in Stockholm, after all.
