The falcon might have greater depreciation over time, but how much are those cost offset by lower maintenance, insurance, running cost etc If at all? Probably not much I'd imagine, well not enough to make up for the large difference in depreciation but in some circumstances I might be a valid issue.
Ok.. well i know my name is ricecooker, but It doesnt mean that i stand for ricer car in any way. However may i add the subaru legacy/libetry B4 (or whatever they call it these days) into the possible selection of cars to compete with your selection. I know.. a lot of you out there are saying ah f*ck a japper will never compete with a falcon blah blah blah, and to be honest id take the gt-p anyday, but in terms of pure figures and sheer logic, I think the B4 can make more of a case than some of the others that were selected, with its 50 odd grand price tag, 190 Kw 320 NM, 0-60 in 6.2 seconds and 14 .4 or so 400M dash and ok handling. On top of which being of the oriental persuasion and a subaru, it will have great build quality and great reliability with not too shabby handling. Not sure about the resale though. but that might even be ok.
