Default What new 2-dr coupe would you buy ?

If you were in the market for one ?

For me, it'd be either an Audi A5, or this C350 4Matic coupe:

I've always been kinda partial to the Infiniti G-35 coupes...I take it cars like a Shelby Mustang, Challenger SRT, or Camaro SS are not in this group? Otherwise, it'd be a new Shelby Mustang, hands down...

Im between an S5, XK and, because they are both in the same price range, I can actually look at an M5, 09 or 10.. Amazing how badly these cars depreciated (almost 50% in two years)

Challenger R/T

Mind you the Mustang is tempting. The interior of the Mustang is quite pleasant, and even the base model V6 is a nice package (~21 000$, 300 HP...)

It's faster than the S and less than a second slower than the GTI. Exponentially cooler and less common too. It'll be cool to see what they come out with as far as mods go.

You're right lol. I'm really just curious to see one in person. I'm checking them out tomorrow at the Calgary International Autoshow. Really, really hoping the model from the commercials accompanies the car... a guy can dream, can't he?. My gf plans to buy one right when its released in Canada. Being 20 with 4 more years of school ahead of me, I think I'll be rocking an Abarth before I get the chance to buy the Merc coupe

What about Hyundai Veloster Turbo?

I don't understand that car but I am somewhat compelled. I love it but I hate it. But I 100% don't understand it.

They're sweeeeeeet. Even my dad liked the Abarth.

For me, GT500, 370Z, 335, C30, Veloster, Genesis, CTS-V Coupe (I'd rather have the wagon, but I'd settle for a coupe), and so on.

there are very few modern cars that tempt me.. but I would take a last gen Z4 or a brand new Cayman S.

The Abarth is on my radar for potential purchase right now. I am a long time fiat owner, so I am interested in this little car

My sister-in-law has one of those new Fiats, and I HATE the color, it's like a caramel, baby poop, latte, tan color...uugghhhh. The Abarth looks cool, for a little Fiat...can't imagine it giving most other cars a run for their money, but hey, with the Italians, function follows form, so at least it'll look good getting passed by just about everything else out there, lol!

If Cadillac still made the Eldorado I'd buy it. The new CTS coupe is bizarre to me.

Otherwise, the Audi A5
