I wish I could say the same, but I just bypassed all the in-between stuff after my first Porsche - a '73 911T - telling myself than my next one would be a 930. Took me 20+ years later and a bunch of foolishness messing around with MG's...trying to coax another 10hp out of the tractor engines that were put in them.

About the 'white faced screaming like a little girl' passengers: That was me first time out. Admittedly I don't scream or pee my pants anymore...what I feel now is more sexual. It's amazing how one can become at ease behind the wheel of a 930 over time. At worst, I catch myself white-knuckling the steering wheel sometimes with a perceived rictus of pain across my smiling lips. Life is good.

Would I own a NA 911 again? Sure, but I don't need it and would probably always be searching for the turbo kick that's missing. Besides, I'll need the money to combat all the bad things said about the 930's.
