    Re: Test Drove Turbo - I'm Gettin' One: DONE

    MMD,
    I went to my local Porsche dealership today to find out about putting in an order for an '08 turbo coupe. Unexpectedly they asked me if I wanted to take a test drive! Of course after reading your post I flat out refused. I'm mean that would be like drinking a fifth of rum before negotiating a contract. They really, really, really want me to get one of their '07's. Thanks for your driving assessment. Really confirmed what I've been thinking all along.

    Hehehe, very true. I'd have to say it's the ultimate daily driver super car.

    It's without the extreme supercar cost and the insufferable lack of practicality.

    WOW.



    I'm puzzled! You've been here all these years and you just discovered the Turbo is a great car! I have the impression you had an epiphany once you drove it. You know... from a cabin perspective, idiosyncrasies et al, it is not that different than a 997S (which you continuously criticize - noisy, uncomfortable, this and that). I bet once you have it you'll rediscover those foibles once again. An exciting test drive hides lots of stuff...

    By reading your comments all along and all your misgivings about this and that I wonder if you'd be happier with an SL500 or even (God forbid) a Lexus SC. Seriously!

    MB? Lexus? Nah..., that's what my BMW is for.

    Turbo is mainly a toy car for weekend fun or available for my impulse to drive it for any given day's routine.
