Performance vehicles are often the cars of our dreams. They’re the ones we had stuck on our walls as a child, and the ones we grew up idolising. Sometimes we outgrow them. Moods, styles, and ultimately finances change, but ultimately, if you’re into performance cars, you’re into them for life. So, with this in mind, how do you afford one? Well, here are three simple options.
Going Old Fashioned
Boring, plain and simple. Going old fashioned means doing things the old fashioned way, and that involves no financing, loans or borrowing: just saving, saving, saving.
This may be the most boring (and probably the longest) way of getting yourself a performance car, but it is also relatively risk free, and it ultimately means you’ll be able to afford what you buy.
There is one thing you need, however, self-motivation. If you plan properly, you will succeed. However, as we all know, it is far too easy to dip into a savings account every now and then, and if you do this, it’ll take you forever to save. But, if you plan properly, you’ll save quickly, reaping the financial and motoring rewards.
Working Your Way Up
The second option, as a bit of a half-way house, is to work your way up to owning a performance vehicle, either by constantly improving your car every time you buy, or by purchasing a car that you can modify. As the first of these options is rather obvious, we will focus on the second.
There are a number of great cars available that you can modify, ranging from the Seat Leon to the Ford Focus. So, find a cheap, used car online and then, if you have the mechanical ability, you can slowly improve it over time, turning it into a car that will be just as fast as the car of your dreams.
There are countless internet forums devoted entirely to the subject, so finding a car that you have the ability to modify cheaply and easily should be straightforward.
Taking a Leased Approach
Finally, if you’re in more of a rush and have a large enough deposit, you can lease a performance vehicle from somewhere like Select Contracts.
Although there is a larger financial implication here, you do get the result you want sooner, without the even larger implication of buying outright in one large sum. Plus, it is a great option for those who don’t have the engineering background to be able to modify and tune.
So, there we have it, three ways that you can get the performance car you want.
