NY is Porsche town

I was in new york all week for the first time. I saw so many porsches. I drooled over a nice white 968 that was parked in nyack, and saw tons of 944's. I also saw at least 20 plus cayennes. New york is apparently porsche central. Finally im home and can start driving my 944 again, ive missed it so much.

I'm sure Ny had a bunch, but you need to visit southern California. It seems I see atleast 3 new 944's every week(some I havent seen before). Among all the 911s(gt2 & gt3), Cayennes, Carrera GT's and even saw a new Cayman. A couple weeks ago I got to cruise down the freeway behind a CarreraGT with a Ferrari Testarossa behind me. That was a fun morning on the way to work.

Now I just wonder if the drivers of the 944's visit these boards.

Saw tons of p-cars in San Fran last March.
Never been to NY, but I imagine Cali would be hard to beat.

Having lived in both NYC and San Francisco I'd say that Cali has a slight edge but both are great places to Porsche-watch. BTW, saw my first Carrera GT pulling up to an office building in Bridgeport, CT last month. I rarely see Porsches there. It was Speed Yellow.

NYC and anywhere south are all heavy with P-cars. Oddly enough, I saw two different Carrera GTs within a couple blocks of my house. I live in a semi-run down area and the weather was crappy when I saw them. Weird.

Haven't seen a GT sighting since.

My cousin visited from Minniapolis not too long ago. He kept calling my car a "Porch." After correcting him a few times, he told me he knew the correct pronunciation, but preferred his. When I asked why, he informed me that since arriving in SoCal, it seemed there was a P car in front of every house, hence they were front "porches."

I grew up with "Porsch" as being the way it was said. I try to say it right, but habit sometimes creeps up.

Unfortunately most of what you see in NY is 996's, Boxters, and Cayennes. 997's are starting to get more popular now too.

Every once in a while you'll get a nice 911 or 993. 944's and 928's are pretty rare.

Although I happened to see two 944's last week, which is odd.
