I have also driven the 911 and 944 - awesome. Crazy pickup and speed. I get why they call my Boxster a wannabe; but, I just love it. Perfect for cruising the PCH with the top down. San Diego is the best place I have lived, where convertibles are concerned.
All my cars since 16 (except one) have been convertibles. The only car that wasn't was the car (honda civic hatchback) that I had during my boys childhood years. Safety first
Yeah, you probably don't want to pull up to your job in a Porsche. LOL! There are a couple of Ferraris in my neighborhood and one Tesla. I covet them. That's my long term dream for sure.
ETA: Nice eye on the HK umbrella, JR.
