Even if an old Porsche has the occasional costly repair it’s nothing against running a bmw made this century. You could rebuild your 915 every year just with the depreciation cost alone.

That's why you buy a used BMW.

The last BMW I owned for 6 years
and it depreciated $2300 in that time

Easily one of the best values of any car out there.
