    Smiley   I was already trying to work out which two husky-type breed names would combine to give "Transam" , until I read the second sentence. 
    Back-lighting certainly can transform a Collie. Smiley

    Thanks for the tip! - I'll bring one with me in case you don't leave yours in the car.............Smiley Smiley

    Love the black wheels BTW, any chance of some nice outdoor pics please when your next out? Smiley

    I have a similar issue with our 997 - my daily drive to work is 80 miles, hence the Clockwork Rat, but when I do get in the P car I perhaps appreciate it even more than if it was a daily drive. Smiley

    Interesting thread this is...my 2cts: leaving the financial issues aside one does not get a porsche, because one's head tells to do so, but because the heart says: Go, go, go...!! And, if your heart says: Go ! then go, go, go and, if not, then simply keep a smile on your face saying: I could go for a drive, if I wanted to - what a brilliant thought I think this is, isn't it ? At least this is, how it works with me. Smiley By the way, and, what other RTs have already pointed out - a good battery charger is certainly a must-have.Smiley

    Definitely - our P car is on Charge-o-Mat life support if it's not going to be used for more than a couple of weeks. That's most of the winter when my work keeps me from doing anything else.

    Re: Car basically in my living room--how often should a new 991 be driven?

    I had a couple of garage queens, mostly 911 and I decided to stop it. It doesn't make sense driving such a car for 30 minutes per week only. I always got very melancholic when I had to put the car key back into the drawer.

    I stopped kidding myself...and ordered a Panamera Turbo S. At least I can drive this car with my family together.

    Maybe, if the stock markets keep making me happy, I will go for a 991 Turbo in two or three years but for now, my 911 addiction is over. Smiley

    ....true, but,....at least you still have something worth to put a smile on your face after all, though I am still surprised that you keep emphazising your affection for this four seater vehicle concept with its scientifically old fashioned turbo charged combustion engine...BAZINGASmiley

    The issue we have is two extremes - I drive 80 miles (130km) per day commute from home to where I work, which would be a killer financially using a Porsche. My wife's place of work is only 2 miles (3km) from home and short trips like that would also be no good mechanically. So she has her shopping trolley (Honda Jazz) and I have my Clockwork Rat. Can't think of any way we can come down to two cars if one of them is a Porsche, much as we'd like to. Smiley Hence the Garage Queen.

    Re: Car basically in my living room--how often should a new 991 be driven?

    Without kids, I would clearly have a 911 garage queen in my garage but since my weekends are family weekends, the 911 just doesn't make sense. Unless I would give a rat's ass about my kids and wife... 

    I enjoy spending the weekend with my family, so I have no choice but get rid of my 911. Life is tough.

    911 or a 2-seater doesn't make sense for me either anymore.

    Don't know why, but every time I see your name I think of Beaumaris on the Isle of Anglesey in North Wales - one of my favourite places...

    Stayed very close to Beaumaris a couple of years ago (Henllys, just up the road). Personally didn't rate Anglesea that much apart from the view of the Menai Straits, but good place as a base to explore Snowdonia. Smiley Sorry, I digress from topic Smiley

    The coloured side markers are a blot on an otherwise flawless landscape.

    Remove those and you have a truly beautiful 911...Smiley
