I hear ya, bro -- that Mars & Venus thing... I suppose gay guys don't have to deal with that, but upon reflection, I don't think I'll switch anyway.

Oooooh -- the 330GTC is likewise my "certainly more attainable than a GTO" dream car. I would, however, "settle" for an even more pedestrian (can that term be applied to a Ferrari?) 330GT 2+2.

That looks like it was pretty much a "cost no object" car when spec'd. Spectacular.

Flawless since delivery, if you are asking me. Two years and just 13,000 miles.

Mine is a manual. My sense is that, just like BMW, the manual transmission is getting much rarer on Porsches. The...

I think you will find that fitting heated seats will be a very expensive proposition. Maybe a couple of thousand for the fronts with OE materials and labor?

I sold two cars -- 2009 Miata and 23005 M3 -- to buy my 2013 Boxster S two years ago. Yes, the 981s are wonderful -- superb handling and surprisingly practical.

I still miss my E46 M3... :(
