Sure, you can dump a ton of $$ into your 930 and try to compete with new technology, or you can sit back and enjoy the skill that you are bringing to the table to turn "slower" lap times than the other guys.
I''m afraid you are right. Regardless of my skill level, I'll probably always be faster in my 996. But I'm sure that spending next year in the 930 will make me a better driver regardless of which car I wind up in later. Thanks for your input.

Absolutely gorgeous car.
Itís a 2002 Carrera 4 TT. The body work had already been done when I bought it, otherwise I would have gone with a GT2 wing. I was getting ready to change it out when I went to Barber a year of so ago. Somebody snapped a pic of me coming down the front straight and all of a sudden the wing looked OK! Great track wing but a little over the top for riding up to the local grocery store.
