Get's my attention. In general, IMO, any 991 variant is pretty compelling. When my lease is up on my M3 next year, I will probably be knocking on Porsche's door. Even the base 991 Carrera is fast, engaging, and surprisingly very accommodating even for my 6'3" frame. Generally, many of the problems I had with the 997 seem to have addressed in the 991. Alternatively, the coming new M, that reportedly may weigh in 400 lbs. less and sport 420 HP, might just kick a base Porsche Carrera's ass. My German shepherd, who is my best bud, is rooting for M - he hates Porsche's rear seats.

I could go either way with the PDK. If I a 7MT is not available, I'm not going to go ape**** like everyone else is doing. However, I really wish they would stop pushing the center lock wheels. Things are already difficult enough without a spare, don't go adding a necessary tidbit (the wrench) which hardly anyone but the dealership is going to have.

Of I could justify a turbo or
Turbo-S i wouldn't care about the changes that much - and if I did a
McLaren MP12C would fix the pouting.
