    IMO, SL65 and 599 will be the ultimate duo



    I think you are spot on with this statement. The combination of 599 and SL65 offers the right car for every opportunity I can think of. If a Porsche would be required for track use a GT2 or GT3 would be a good complement.

    In my case, the perfect combo might be A8 W12 and 599GTB.

    As my Porsche dealer cannot tell me anything about x50 or GT2 I am looking forward to my 599 test drive...



    Spent about 500 mis w/my 997TT Tip/PCCB over past few days, as well as about 500 mis w/my '07 SL65 on both high-speed fwys and mtn twisties.....based upon this "eye-opening" expce, I've relegated my 997TT Tip to SF winter AWD commuter duty on those rainy winter days ...car is too underwhelming except for those depressing, slow-fwy days, when one is in no mood to head for mtn twisties anyway....997TT's Prius-like exhaust note and annoying turbo lag/nonlinearity is too embarrassing/underwhelming for anything except ugly weather....and 65 has auto-brake drying feature, making it uncertain whether 997TT will even be my favored rainy-day car.....we'll find out in 3 mths or so....

    Find 65 far more stable at 100MPH+ than 997TT, w/better steering at high speeds, esp w/US' sometimes bumpy fwys; in twisties, enjoy 65's exhaust note, paddle shifters and steering/chassis precision/balance more than 1000lb lighter 997TT

    And in daily urban commuting use, 997TT's feeble fuel tank cap, lack of usable trunk/Bluetooth/Sirius/ventil seats, etc etc is laughable .....SL65 simply kills 997TT for daily usability (until even higher-tech CL63/65 arrive)....

    Will be interested to see how 599 measures up vs 65's in US urban uses w/amateur buyers/drivers....safety argument is obviously already won by 65/63; question is if 599's exhaust note/paddleshifters are more captivating than MB's latest/greatest.....otherwise, I'll be opting for an SL/CL65-only fleet....

    You can bet on this

    BTW: Interesting report Whenever I am in the States (mostly Florida, though) I feel that I would prefer a SL to a Porsche. It simply suits your road infrastructure best! Also, the convertible option can be used quite often in your SF climate
