Good article, and it was cool to see some of the other cars too (never knew about the Boxter's intermediate shaft bearing problem). But the GrandSport never came from the factory with an engine spec plaque on the console. That was an aftermarket item that someone added to the car.

Did anyone watch the end of the video that said they had a 17% price drop from 2017-2018?
Not knocking them I think they are great cars, just understand what's going on with price if your looking for an investment.

Yes, I read that too. Although I never bought mine as an investment. I got a fantastic deal back in 1996 at Xmas time, people were paying above sticker for these GrandSports and I was a lucky one who got it for Dealer invoice (and then some).
The car owes me zero and I could probably get $28K for it now (not too far from what I paid at the time). I had a very good friend back then who was a manager at a dealership and he took care of me.
I maintain my car religiously, garage it in the winter, it hardly sees rain. But I have modified it slightly with cold air, Long Tube ARH headers and cats with X pipe, B&B Fusion Exhaust, small tune performed by myself, Banski rear suspension, Ridetech shocks, Pioneer head unit with Bluetooth and Android Radio using factory Bose speakers.
Things to make my car fairly modern and keep me happy, as I don't care about a future buyer if you know what I mean!

The Ram SRT-10 is a crazy machine. Interesting that it's on this collectible list.
