Risky Business. Maybe you're too young. Hard to believe that was over 20 years ago.

As long as we're showing off. My 1988 911 Turbo Look. My first Porsche was a 928S light metalic blue.  
The first car I had up to 150mph, speed limit was only 55 back then. Blew past cars like they were standing still! http://www.georgealarm.com/doug/f911.JPG

Very nice cars. I always liked the 80s porches.

You guys are killin me... I had to sell my 1970 911E when the cost to fix the rust was 3 times what the car was worth. At least the drive train lives on in my buddy's Vanagon.

Don't the 928's take a ridiculous amount of oil...like 10 quarts?

My second Porsche is shown below, my first being an 8 year old used Championship Edition 924 (with the Martini & Rossi interior colors).
And this is just another one of those crappy water-pumpers , it's 99 C2 6 speed.
And before you ask 'yes' I do have center caps, these were some borrowed rims and mismatched tires to get around while I was having new tires put on.

Porsches are a love-hate thing for me. They're a blast to drive but all the little crap that breaks on them gets annoying. Germans apparently still haven't learned how to make plastic worth a damn. The worst thing for me about the 996 is the unbelievable tire wear on the rears. I barely get 10,000 miles out of them before the inner tread block is totally gone.  This is even with less aggressive camber than the factory recommended specs.

As much as I enjoy it, the cost of driving the thing really bums me out (I'm a complete cheapskate at heart).

I always liked the 944 turbos also. Those were bad little cars for their time and with nice proportions.

Believe it or not I'll probably sell mine before long and get a 10 year old Accord or something.

They can be expensive. My turbo is modified, and the cost of ownership escalates rapidly when you do that. I could own a '99 996 much like yours for what I have in the 951, but that's the way it goes. The Kinesis wheels are a dead giveaway that I've spent some money on it. Those are K27, 17x11 on the rear.

I'd like to brag on it, but I don't have any recent dyno sheets to scan, so I don't want to start something I can't prove. But it's a lot more powerful than when it left the factory.
