Yes, but one could tie all those clown cars to the rear bumper of my truck, together, and my visceral soul mobile would yank them up one side of the track and down the other - winning biggly at a tow-off is winning yuuuugggeee in the "have soul" department!

I'll be finished with mine in a few years, maybe we can have a tow off.

I heard that somebody once tore Deez's diaper off, and it wasn't a pleasant sight!

Just remember the 550 beat Ferrari, long before Shelby did.

996 wasn't a "real" Porsche to the Porsche cool kidz. Just like Caymans, Cayennes, Boxsters, Panameras, Macans (and probably Taycans I assume) aren't "real" Porsches.

Meanwhile Porsche is printing money by the fistful selling fake Porsches, as the most profitable car company in the world.

I see 996s, 997s, Boxsters, etc as Taylor Swift. The purist snob music people look down on it as they listen to obscure Norwegian punk rock bands. Meanwhile Taylor sells out 80K seat stadiums nightly.
Like.

The 996 is like a Ford Taurus. We have 996 and 993 cabs sitting side by side in the garage, and its hard to believe that they were both made by Porsche. The 996 interior materials, leather, plastic finishes, etc are inferior to those used on the 993. The 993 is a tip, and Id take it any day over the 996 6 speed. The only time I drive the 996 is to diagnose a problem when I have to work on it. It feels clumsy compared to the earlier cars. I consider the car a time bomb. When a major engine problem arises, we will junk it out.

I agree, completely different beasts, Porsche decided at some point to push units and they did, 996, Cayenne's, Macan's, all very profitable. All at the expense of watering down the brand. It would be like if Jack Daniel's started cutting their product and gave you a plastic bottle in the same shape as the glass one. It would still be brown, the bottle would look the same on the shelf, but would it really be the same?

Interesting. I never touched a 993, but several 996 reviews I read said that it drove night-and-day better than the 993, cheap materials notwithstanding.

Of course it's better. No sane person thinks otherwise. But don't tell that to the aging boomers here who have convinced themselves a car that is slower than a Kia cross over, is the epitome of a sports car. Same people who swore records were better than CDs. They're stuck in a time warp despertaley tryng to relive their youth. At least the guys who loved 70s muscle cars also understood what POS they were.

I've driven both, and was underwhelmed by the 996, felt Japanese. I bought the 993 after I test drove the 996. So real world examples, not magazine reviews, or armchair quaterbacking, real world info, the kind a BOT can't share.

Boomers are cute when they're angry.
Felt Japanese, LOL. ooooh kay.

Just be honest. You like them better because they remind you of your youth. It's cool BRO. We all love nostalgia. No shame in it.

The fact that you think I'm cute is a little creepy, since you're a BOT. But the boomer mistake is laughable, I'm mid 40's.

As far as my youth, that was a 75 911S when I was 19. This was 1994. Ancient history to a BOT but just a couple of years before the 996 came out and bored everyone.

How many records do you own, be honest?
Also why do you wear such baggy pants?

Not a 1. CD's either.

Wait, I do have a couple of gold records left over from the hip-hop magazine days, do those count? They're framed.

As far as the pants, same reason I had the woven belt, it was the 90's, don't judge.

Right. CD's are highly compressed. He's clearly never heard a vinyl record on a high quality system versus a CD. Talking out his butt again, with confident arrogance.
