How many own multiple 911s?

I've currently got a 993 that I love, but have been thinking about buying another 911 (an SC or Carrera) to daily drive. I currently use an E36 328is as a daily driver, but there's nothing quite like the 911 driving experience for me. How many of you currently own multiple 911s or plan to add another 911 to your garage in the future?

I own 6, but I have been hooked on these cars for nearly 30 years.

4, all running, 69,71,75,87. I see myself as having been put on this earth to give these fine cars a good home. I tell my wife there is no one else who can do the job I'm doing and that having custody while I'm alive is a privilege not a right and it is my responsibility to preserve a piece of automobile history. Not sure she buys it but it's worked so far. Wonder if I can get to 5 on that.

I currently own two, but not by choice - a '90 964 C2 and a '71 T Targa. The wife refuses to allow me to sell the 964.

Personally, I love both cars but I find it difficult owning two at once. It's hard for me to find the time and money to maintain both, and I feel like neither one gets the attention they deserve.

Two. Winter and summer cars. Anything less is a compromise. Tell your wife that and stick to it.

I did own two, but my wife said I was starting to look a little pretentious.

Hi Andrew! I still have my 993 and I just bought an '80 SC. The new car has several track oriented mod's and I suspect it will see a lot of time there.

Good to see you are enjoying the 993 life!

Hi Hal,

Congrats on the SC! I'd love to see some pics of it. Post them here or e-mail them to me when you get a chance. I've been grappling with the SC vs. Carrera decision, but your photos (and my budget!) might just push me in the SC direction.

Andrew, it is 1,000 miles from here and because of my schedule it will be mid-July before I fly out and drive it home. A long drive on the east coast,in July, without a/c. YIKES!!!

Just one for me: a 72 S. But I am 23 and need a better job and more money if I am ever to get more.
