This is my second 911 (993) having previously had the 964, having had several 944's before that. It's the one I always wanted and I have to say that every time I get in it, any stresses just vanish when you plant your foot down and hear that noise! I could have a 996 but prefer the air cooled variety plus I think the 993 is the nicer looking.
Whilst there are tuned to the max cars that will blow mine away if they don't blow their engine up first it is a very quick car. And with four seats, I can get both children in the back, practical. Whats the point having a great looking car when you have to use the boring one to turn up somewhere special!
No doubt there are better cars out there, but the overall package if you include emotion can't be beaten. Even going down to the supermarket with the wife is a blast.
Oh and check out the depreciation when your new Family Saloon/Hot Hatch have had a their first birthday. Mine is still commanding great money.
I am not rich! You don't have to be to have a 911. Just sensible and not mind people saying "I'd love one of them"
