Renting an exotic car in Boston, Rhode Island, or Connecticut is a much smarter financial decision than buying one. Cars depreciate in value rather quickly and the maintenance costs or fairly high. Also the cars are not all season every day cars, and tend to only be garaged more than driven.
Below is a chart showing ownership costs of a $150,000 used exotic car, we say used because if you were to buy a new one you would also have to pay the gas guzzler tax that is charged on most exotics due to the fuel consumption.
**Based on 3 years 5,000 miles per year
This is what you are paying to own one of these cars and you don’t even drive it throughout the winter. During the Spring, Summer and Fall months, if you consider that it will rain about 20% of the time, you really only have about 20 good weekends to enjoy your vehicle.
Now take a look at the chart associated with the cost of renting the same vehicle for 20 weekends out of the year.
When you rent from Status Ride, you have the option of driving away in not just one vehicle (if you purchased a car), but many different and exotic vehicles not to mention avoiding the time spent maintaining and servicing the vehicle and the headaches that come along with that.
So put that initial $24,000 out of pocket expense back in your wallet and rent your dream from Status Ride.
