Yea, if you can stand to look at that POS. When we Go out in my girls 996, I make her drive and I duck if I see anyone I know.

It would still be brown, the bottle would look the same on the shelf, but would it really be the same?

I love That analogy!

I was commuting with a 996 for several miles yesterday. I like the shape of the back and the side profile isn't bad. The slope of the fenders and Dolphin look of the front are just bad.

The one thing that makes me chuckle about the 996 is I can't look at one without thinking of this car...

While plenty of folks on the far left shamelessly whine up one side and down the other, the far right has been aggressively flying their own victim flag as of late; maybe they are leftists at heart (the orange guy definitely must be, as I've never heard anyone whine with such frequency and gusto as that dude).

***forum butt pinch***


Tobs, nothing tickles me more than seeing the hypocrisy of extremists, and I can't help but to point and laugh. That is one of the things I enjoyed about PARF - a subforum full of hypocritic extremists that had no difficultly making fools of themselves; I was entertained!

Afraid of Mooslims. Afraid of brown people. Afraid of black people. Afraid of atheists. Afraid of people who get abortions. Afraid of rich elitists afraid of Jews. But so strong they need their guns and body armor to go pout in the state capital because they can’t get a haircut and a tattoo.

Ha ha, yep! Nothing says "bad ass patriot" like armed and armored men(?) pissing and moaning together!

And don't forget, afraid of the homeless, afraid of the poor, afraid of the less educated, and afraid of single mothers.

Or the homosexuals and trans. They are extra afraid of guys who like dicks and guys who surgically remove them too.

To get the thread back on topic: let's say you're transitioning to a one-car setup, so you want a year-round 911 that you can use as a daily, but also enjoy for fun. AWD for the northeast winter, and open-top to enjoy in the summer.
Let's say you're ok with PDK and you're not one of those "aspirated engine only for me, thanks" snobs. For the same money (e.g. $80k), would you buy a 997.2tt cab or a CPO 991.2 C4 cab?
