Still more proof that recession is upon us… Sports car maker Saleen is offering folks a $25 gift card for test-driving one of their speedy but expensive cars. Pictured above is a Saleen-modified Ford Mustang S281 RF with 465 horsepower, 425 lb-ft. of torque, and an MSRP of $50,000. Not a bad weekend idea if you are vehicularly-inclined and have a dealer near you. Via Slickdeals.

I still had a fun time when we got paid $50 worth of steaks to test drive a $150,000 Maserati, now I’m just waiting for someone to pay me to test drive a Ferrari!

  1. A recession is defined as 2 consecutive quarters of negative GDP growth. We haven’t had the 1st one yet.

  2. Is there a place to rent Ferrari?
    How much is it per day?

    I love getting paid to drive cars. Especially to test drive a sports car. I should look into this…

  4. If it looks like a duck, sounds like a duck and walks like a duck…. well then… I mean the hard data may not be in yet… and a recession can never be called until many months after it has started. That’s not to say that current economic conditions don’t feel like a recession to many. You might walk out the door, when the wind is blowing and the temperature is 33 degrees, and observe to a friend: “Wow, it’s freezing out here today.” And we wouldn’t say you’re wrong, the weatherman won’t use the word “freezing” until the temperature is 32 degrees or lower.

    Unfortunately, measuring the health of the economy takes a little longer than looking at a thermometer. Because of the time involved in collecting and analyzing economic data, it’s very possible to be well into a recession before the numbers confirm it.

  5. A recession is when your neighbor loses his job. A depression is when you lose yours. 😛

  6. It’s like the 60’s /70’s all over again. The Ford Mustang, the new Chevy Camero, Dodge Challenger… More than happy to test drive these machines.

    Thanks Jonathan!

  7. I never took economics past high school. 🙂 Wikipedia on Recession:

    In macroeconomics, a recession is generally associated with a decline in a country’s real gross domestic product (GDP), or negative real economic growth. According to one widespread definition, a recession occurs when real growth is negative for two or more successive quarters of a year. However, there are differing definitions: In the United States, the National Bureau of Economic Research’s (NBER) Business Cycle Dating Committee ultimately decides whether the economy has fallen into a recession. The NBER does not use any specific methodology for determining the start and end dates of a recession – instead it looks at a variety of economic indicators over various time periods and determines whether to declare that the economy is in a recession based on those data.

  8. I say Stagflation–price inflation combined with slow-to-no output growth, rising unemployment

  9. “In the United States, the National Bureau of Economic Research’s (NBER) Business Cycle Dating Committee ultimately decides whether the economy has fallen into a recession.”

    You’d think the media decided when we were in a recession.

  10. Recessions are all well and good. Has anyone actually driven the car and gotten paid for it?

  11. Does anyone know if you can just walk into one of these approved dealerships and ask about it? or do you need a form, like most of these?

    thanks,

    Even in a recession there will still be people with money buying expensive cars. Last year 55,000 Hummers were sold, even though a Hummer only gets 9-13 MPG.
