We are kind of a Porsche vacuum out here in SE VA. Thin pickens. My wife is nudging me on a Cayenne GTS - she really likes the GTS red of the 2009.

Spent an hour in the car. Very clean, 53K miles, well maintained. Tan interior, which was meh (according to wife), but overall a solid well presented car. Fit check was OK once I got the seat...

Omni - I am going to drive a local 2007 this week to calibrate my brain on this again.

Squirrel!

Kansas -

I hear you and do not have an argument against the 997 (yeah, IMS...) - honestly have not kept up on the maintenance info on those cars, so am taking some time to read and learn. Most of...

"the good old days..."

LOL - Ryan - it was a different time. I came out of Annapolis right after Top Gun came out, and yes the O'Club scene was a stark departure from then to the end of my career. Enjoy every minute in the...

That is what sticks in the back of my head. I suppose 20 years ago it was the same argument. It might be silly, but I miss individual gauges, not clusters. But then I look at a 09-10 Carrera S and...

I have had MANY people say the 996 C4S is a steal in the market...but I will admit to struggling with the fried egg lights. In many ways water-cooled seems more practical for day to day driving, but...

Best Value in Market

It has been awhile since I shipped the 70E to Colorado to Type911, but I am at the point where there is some relative clear air ahead that has opened the door for a replacement. I am drawn to the...

Perspective

As one just starting to look, I really think the selling number, as always, is based on stoking the buyer's emotions. As much as BaT rubs me the wrong way, you can probably get top dollar there....

Sigh of Relief

I cannot convey how good it is to come back to Pelican and read through un-varnished discussions - especially about BaT. Like many, private schools and college overtook my priority list, but after...

You might also mention the restored Blaupunkt AM/FW/SW stereo radio. Very rare upgrade back in the day and sounds pretty good. The MFI stacks were off of a 71E that changed to Webers back in 1975,...

Appreciate the varying comments and advise. No intention of slighting the 84-86 3.2's, but having previously having owned 915 and G50 gearboxes, if I go 3.2, I will likely spend for the 87-88 car -...

I agree with the hazard switch being the culprit. I suspect that the hazard switch is not fully shutting down, and this precludes the turn signal from normal operations. If the hazard works OK when...
