Thats what makes it unique. If a porsche was the same price as a fiesta, for example, then it would get the same reputation.

I don't think so.

But yeah the case is very nice

If you had a helluva lot of money you'd buy it but not otherwise I don't think

I think we'll just put it down to the fact that Porsche's cost a lot more to build and are made in smaller quantities which is why they are more expensive.

As the saying goes: "You get what you pay for".

Porsche's cost more to build because the quality of them is much more superior than a lot of cars out there.

With a case like this its one of those things to put the cost aside. If someone really wants it then cost is irrelevant to them. Like people who buy expensive cars that cost about 100k, the arent going to worry about the price of petrol.

horses for courses.

seeing as I've spent a small fortune on my TV and Surround sound system, I guess I'd stump up the cash as it'd fit in nicely with the rest of my stuff.

Not for everyone I guess but then again is anything?
