Just remember that it is Porsche powered and VW pushing .
Truthfully, two entirely different worlds.....
The "Speedster" guy does not even know what a Corvette is.... Let alone care.
All the while the Corvette guy is waiving his arms shouting "look at me... I'm faster... I'm faster"... Yet no one cares.
From the pics, the new Corvette is stunning....(and I'm a 40 year PCA member and have a 996)
Porsche enthusiasts are hard to categorize; there are people in our club who have a streetable car and a track car; others own a single car, particularly 911's of a preferred type, and some have, as you said, multiple Porsches. They range from execs in Fortune 100 Companies to ordinary Joes. All love driving their cars. That is my observation: People buy Porsches to drive them and for some, Porsches are the ultimate track tool.
Here's sample collection of one of the multiple car owners.
Especially when all 4 will outperform.
But, but, but, it's still not a Porsche.
Anybody driving a $450,000.00 Porsche cares. He's given 450,000 reasons he cares. He cares a lot.
All kidding aside, the Porsche holds much more allure to me as well, but it would still torque me off every time a Corvette pulled up beside me at a red light. I admit, it's probably an ego thing on my part.
Yes. Porsche guys love Vettes too.
I once owned a 1955 pre-A Continental Coupe 1500N and a 1966 911. The 911 had six single Solex carbs, a Webasto gas heater that made appropriate noises but never produced heat, and a piece of plywood floor to keep my feet off roadway.
I should have kept the 1955.
For that kind of money I’d rather have a Brabus and eat up pretty much any exotic on the road.
HP alone is pretty meaningless, go drive a Hellcat or Demon. Fun in a straight line. 9000 RPM’s with incredible steering and handling is where it’s at.
Guess it depends on which Brabus you choose, all of which will be exotic.
Sounds like you drive a Porsche GT3.
GT3 since 15. It’s a keeper.
Getting back to the speedster, I’ve always liked them. The price is very high. All speedsters of all generations are high. They are collectible and for guys way above my pay grade. I personally haven’t bought a car above sticker. The thought sickens me.
I paid cash for mine and I was lucky to get mats thrown in. The "Porsche Brand Ambassador" said "Good Morning" to me when my car came in; I think I was billed for one Greeting.
Yeah, and does it have a cigarette lighter? Deal breakers!
Damn. I’m just not a big fan of red automobiles. Other than that...?
Essential Porsche! Love GT3's. Had I ordered one though, I would be a solo pilot. Remember Wifey thinks that the only reason I bought her a full face motorcycle helmet is so that the pedestrians wouldn't hear her screaming.
There are several here that have GT3's, -JCN- has a collection.
I got only a modest discount when I ordered my 911, but the car is exactly as I wanted it.
This is one of my favorite pictures from one of the last car shows of the season. This man of obvious class and distinction is ignoring the Ferrari 488 GTB 70th Anniversary model to admire my classic Porsche cabriolet.
Great to be able to enjoy these cars, and I suppose if you can afford to invest HALF A MILLION on a car that you probably won't drive, that's fine..but as an investment? How long will you have to wait to make the "profit" on that car rather than just investing the $$; yeah, looking at it in the garage is really nice
I've owned a bunch of 911's, all bought used, (still have an 03 996 cab) and have enjoyed the s**t out of then, but lately driving in S FL has become a very "chancy" thing and I don't feel safe anymore....so next best I leased a Porsche Macan S... it feels like 1/2 a 911...
Who needs a supercar to get from one red light to the next on Federal Highway (US 1) anywhere between Miami and half way up the coast...so much traffic.
I guess I'm just being an old codger....
McLaren F1, $1m new (1990s), $12m+ now.
