Finance a Mercedes

Congratulations to our friend Dennis Nicotra as he makes drive-history being inducted into the National Historic Vehicle Association with his purchase of the first Mercedes-Benz Type 300 SL sold in America. It was never Mercedes- Benz’s intention to sell this model vehicle, but rather to showcase the brand’s design talents.

Cars to Watch at Amelia

Finance a Ferrari

For many, vehicles are a statement piece, a work of art, and a prized possession. This weekend at the Amelia Island Auctions there will be many venues showcasing today’s finest example of automotive engineering. Premier Financial Services has a team in attendance at the Amelia Island Auctions and Concours d’Elegance this year, including Mitch Katz, Doug Ewing, Keith Neelans and Christopher Warren. Here are a few of the autos we’ve got our eye on this week.

THE 2014 TURBO S is the most advanced production 911 to date. With 560 hp, this all-wheel-drive, all-weather 2+2 makes the way-way–ahead-of-its-time 959 look like a 911E. It’s two seconds faster to 60 mph and vanquishes the 959 in every measure of performance, efficiency and comfort. If its $183,695 base price seems cheeky, consider 1987’s $225,000, 444-hp 959 in today’s dollars, which works our to $475,000. Porsche lost at least that on every 959 it sold, but turns a tidy profit on each 991 Turbo S. Now that’s progress.
