    Do you love your 997/S?

    A buddy of mine called his car his "soulmate." He loves his Pcar.

    I OTOH, love driving mine, but I don't look at it "lovingly" or think about it longingly when it's not around.

    I actually look at it most of the time appreciating, drinking in, and soaking up it's incredible physical beauty but at the same time wonder when the "darn" thing (putting it nicely) is gonna cost me major bucks or other penalty resulting from repairs or tickets.

    It's a beautiful object that is also scary because I can make it go verrrry fast. Odd balance between a perfect finish, elegant perfect shape combined with massive amounts of kinetic energy.

    How do you view your 997/S?

    Re: Do you love your 997/S?

    My prized possession. A lifelong desire realised. I guess I love it as much as anyone can love an inanimate object. Had it two weeks today, so maybe I'm not in possession of it long enough to give a good answer. Right now, I like the hell out of it, and I havn't even got out of the breakin restritions. Ask me again in another two weeks when my 2000 mile breakin is done.

    Re: Do you love your 997/S?

    obsession right

    Re: Do you love your 997/S?

    Let's put it this way. I think the 911 is the finest sports car in the world. If that's love, then so be it!!!

    Here are some snap shots, unfortunately on a cloudy day.

    I picked it up on Feb. 20 and only have 495 miles on it, and keeping it under 4,200 rpm takes a real effort. But that will pass in time.

    Here's another one. Side view.

    Last one. Had to put the front license plate holder on or face a $250 fine. Virginia loves to use traffic laws and regulations to shake people down for extra revenue.

    Re: Do you love your 997/S?

    Jim48, you slacker! I picked up mine the same day and have over 1000 miles already.

    Re: Do you love your 997/S?

    i love my 997S, i'd dry hump it 24 hours a day if I didn't have to work

    Re: Do you love your 997/S?

    doesn't that scratch the paint?

    Re: Do you love your 997/S?

    Flap,

    Yes, I am a slacker in this case, but I've got some family obligations that prevent me from doing more driving right now. In the next week, I ought to be able to take a trip into some more mountainous country in Virginia, out to Highland and Bath Counties. Highland County is known as
    the Switzerland of Virginia, and rightly so. Loads of hairpins and switchbacks, perfect country to be tamed by me in my Porsche 911s!

    i'm gentle.

    Re: Do you love your 997/S?

    I like mine as much as I can like a CAR! I don't love it and will never love it. Sorry if I lose some Porsche points from my fellow members. I had always wanted to own one and now that I have it is a blast to drive. Would I buy another one only time will tell.

    Re: Do you love your 997/S?

    Interesting question. Honestly, at this point, I have to confess I was more attached to my Boxster (2001) than I am currently to my 997 cab, which I really, really, really like. One reason the Boxster was so special is I was able to take 2 really long road trips in it in the 2 years I had it, and I reminisce when I see the video and pictures. I haven't had (or taken) that opportunity yet in my 997. Once I do, I'll probably feel the same way if not more about it as I do my Boxster.

    Re: Do you love your 997/S?

    I love my 997 so does my wife! In fact, I love it so much, I want to get another one just so I can park them next to each other!

    Re: Do you love your 997/S?

    Okay does anyone notice anything wrong with the pictures above?

    FRONT LICENSE PLATE! (Well it is Virginia so I guess we can let it pass)

    AMBER SIDEMARKERS!

    Change them, please.

    Re: Do you love your 997/S?

    I have had mine for a month and a half. In this short amount of time I am happier with it than any other car ever. I am very proud to be a Porsche owner and look forward to owning my 997 CS for a few years, then it's on to the next model. I love it.

    Re: Do you love your 997/S?

    Actually, he would have to wet hump it. Only the GT3 and Turbo models come with the dry hump.
