Family needs can be overcome, just convince the kids and your wife hopping in and out of the back seats is good physical for them.

I know a guy who managed to convince his wife a Porsche Cayman was good for their family with two girls.
Last night my wife, after hearing her Audi will be at the dealer for a week, informed me she wants a Cayenne. I laughed until I realized she's serious. She said it's a sensible alternative to the 911s her dad always had. Every story about the 911s is a mix of nostalgia and childhood trauma: he forced her to ride in cross country several times in the back of them! WTF?! What is this Stockholm Syndrome? Guess I should be happy she doesn't want to shoehorn our 3 year old (or the second kid she's begging for) into the back of a 911.

FWIW, my mom always (and still) has sports cars. I have no desire to have a sports car with a kid in a car seat.
