It's What I Always Wanted. — That it took me so long to justify getting it. Flew to California to get it and drove it all the way back to Georgia. Great trip and great way to get to know the car. Lots of comments from everyone on the way back as it's a good looking car.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

998 911 993 Targa — This is the last year for Air cool Porsche Targa 911. When you drive around the corner you feel as if the car is on a track rail, and you stick around the corner as tight as any car in it's class

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Cons

Practicality

See Above — Fantastic car, never let me down in the 5 years I had it.. Only sold as it was a little impractical with a young family. Will buy again when the kids grow up. Everyone should own a 911 at least once in their lives....

Primary Use: Commuting to work

No Booth, No Luxury (all plastic, no leather), No comfort

Performance Babe — This kind of Porsche you buy only for the performance, there's no luxury at all. Rahter buy a Golf R32 or Audi S4 for more interior beauty. Of course it drives lovely.
