Is it going to cost more money to insure a car with a turbo engine?
This car won't be used for racing, if that helps. I'm going to treat it more like a high-end luxury vehicle.
Unfortunately, most car insurance companies are going to charge you more money to insure a car with a turbo engine. Some may even refuse to give you a quote.
Such vehicles are seen as risky and more likely to result in claims because they have more power and speed. This applies even if you don’t plan on racing with your car.

Is a non-owner policy a better option than paying for the insurance at a rental car agency?
I don't own a car, but I do rent cars regularly. I get a good deal on the car itself, but the insurance cost really adds up! Would a non-owner policy save me money?

"Why did I get a letter from an auto lender saying my counteroffer was not accepted? "
"I bought a new car from the dealership. After putting a lot of money down, trusting the dealer to source the financing for the rest, signing on the loan, and driving the car for over a month, I got a letter from a lender saying my counteroffer was not accepted. I don’t remember making a counteroffer to anyone and the lender that sent me the letter is not who I was told to send my payments to. What does this mean? "
