    When people ask what you drive, how do you answer . . .

    1) a Porsche;
    2) a Carrera;
    3) a 911; or
    4) a 911 Carrera.

    Me - I say a 911.

    A Porsche, and a piece of crap minivan for daily use

    Re: When people ask what you drive, how do you answer . . .

    El Camino. Nobody likes braggarts.

    Re: When people ask what you drive, how do you answer . . .

    A Porsch-a.

    We must pronounce it correctly.

    Re: When people ask what you drive, how do you answer . . .

    Depends who I'm talking to. If it's someone who knows about 911s, I say a 4S, if it's someone who doesn't, then it's Porsche (with the "E")!

    Re: When people ask what you drive, how do you answer . . .

    -sorry, dont wanna be mean-

    Re: When people ask what you drive, how do you answer . . .

    Two words - Porsche Turbo.

    I say a Black car !!

    Unless she's pretty hot, then I say 911

    Re: I say a Black car !!

    and if she is John?

    Re: I say a Black car !!

    A Porsche 911 for fun and sunny days, my trusty Ford Lightning for everything else.

    Beyond that it gets too confusing, we've got roughly 150 cars in our collection, so you never know what goofy contraption I'll pull up in...

    Re: When people ask what you drive, how do you answer . . .

    a 911

    I'm with John.

    People in Cincinnati would assume I was trying to show off unless I adopt a minimally descriptive manner.

    Depending on the selection of the moment, I tell 'em I drive:

    1) A truck ... (GX470)

    2) A convertible ... (996TT Cab)

    3) A hot rod ... (CGT)

    4) A blue sedan ... (Arnage)

    5) A little blue sedan ... (A4)

    6) An economy car ... (Civic Hybrid)

    Re: When people ask what you drive, how do you answer . . .

    Porsche

    Re: When people ask what you drive, how do you answer . . .

    The only flaw in that, is that the fact that somebody ASKED you the question, means that they are keen to know. You give them an overly general answer, and they'll look at you funny and persist to find out exactly what it is. You may as well cut to the chase and get it over with, there's no way to look humble driving a flippin Bentley or Carrera GT Mike!!!

    they don't, but if they did ask such a shallow question, i would say 5) "an F150".

    Sometimes I say 997 to confuse people.....

    Works every time...

    Re: When people ask what you drive, how do you answer . . .

    '94' F250

    Arnage..."a blue sedan" thats very funny !

    Thats a fine example of understatement

    Ive found that most people think any Porsche costs a zillion dollars anyway so I never talk it up. Ive never had anyone specifically ask me "what do you drive" except insurance companies and hotels.
