Actually, the new 911 cab's roof apparently has all the advantages of a hardtop with none of the (weight and bulk) disadvantages, as it's made from some kind of magnesium. Also, I'm not sure that the "practicality class" is so different now, considering the increased room in the new model. Regardless, though (and perhaps most importantly), you are (unfortunately!) VERY right about the "different price class," lol... But hey, you can't kill a guy's dreams!
