I remember your 930...such a sweet color. The 996 turbos sure are tempting these days from a price perspective, but I agree with you that the look isn't so great.

I had an opportunity to drive one a couple years ago and was impressed with the speed, but it would not replace the 930 for me. I'd like one as a winter beater maybe

The 996 is just so refined compared to the 930, its just sort of boring to me. I drove a friend's 993 turbo and I have the same complaint. For a daily driver, either would be much easier to live with, but as a weekend toy I think the 930 experience is hard to beat.

You may be on to something with the 965. They are supposed to be a bit more modern feeling than the 930. I'd like to drive one of those to see if they manage to retain enough rawness to scratch the itch.
