You can get a gorgeous interior/exterior and performance at what a whatever level but you gotta pay more.
It's like If you cant afford a Porsche 911 turbo S,you can settle for a Nissan GT-R. Same performance minus character,quality,beautiful designs,Gravitas etc. The real deal ,the cars kids grow up dreaming of owning one day.
Get real. There are tons of people who pick the GTR over a porsche regardless of price. Same goes with the corvette. Porsches are over priced anyway. And not everyone thinks a porsche is beautiful.
