As a Porsche owner, I find that stereotype offensive. I bought mine because of the laser sharp handling, prodigious grip, and great engine sounds. I didn't buy it to compensate for having a short dick. I use my tounge for that.
You say that like you have driven one and feel they are not worth the money!!
Have you ever driven a Porsche? They really drive exceptionally well. I'd never been a big fan until a couple years ago, when I test-drove recent 911s and Boxsters (and later bought a 2005 Boxster). Neither is the most powerful sports car you can get for the money, but they both have incredible suspension and brakes and both handle exceptionally well. They're also well-made, reliable, practical cars (if you don't need a lot of space to carry stuff).On 2007-02-28 10:50, mnrider wrote:
Porche's are just made for people that need to make up for the lack something.....
You've obviously never driven a Boxster or Cayman. The 911 is a great car, but no matter what miracles the Porsche people have worked over the years, it's still got the engine in the wrong place. The 986/987 platform is far better dynamically than the 996/997. Porsche has just skimped on the engine for the "lower" models to keep the flagship status of the 911. Even so, the Cayman is still quicker around a racetrack.On 2007-02-28 14:49, roadkill wrote:
