There's another side of depreciation that people overlook when buying a new car: options.As I just showed you, there are certain options and variants that you'd be insane not to add because you will recover the extra you paid when it's time to sell the car. But more importantly, you will have enjoyed the car with those options for the duration of ownership, while total depreciation in monetary value, or loss, will be close to or about the same as for the lesser car.A convertible costs $17,000 more than the coupe, and yet informed buyers of pre-owned 911s will invariably seek out a coupe, which simply makes the markup on the convertible a total loss for the first owner.
