Let's see, Porsche owner:
Probably had to wait to own the car of his/her dreams.
Does some or all of the mechanical work on the car.
Loses sleep over which viscosity oil to use in the Spring.
Not afraid to tweek a little more power out of the car.
Appreciates the engineering that went into the car.
Keeps it clean but doesn't cry when a bird poops on the hood.
Owns a hound or a feisty cat.

Ferrari/Lambo/Aston Martin/Lotus owner:
Daddy bought the car.
Would not dream of ever doing a tune up.
Does not know where the oil drain plug is located.
Afraid of the cars power potential.
Likes the color of the paint, not sure about suspension loading.
Fanatic about keeping it clean and rarely drives the car.
Owns a poodle or a parakeet.

Am I close?

These are all just cars and no car has any value until someone purchases it and therefore assigns value to it. Porsche owners are pragmatic, sensible people. We understand what the car was designed to do and we appreciate that it does it very well. The people who own other exotic cars can trade them back and forth to each other for unGodly sums, who cares.

I just wish I could find a broker who would let me put my Porsche into my IRA...
