Yes for me...but truth is I work from home and live within very short walking distance of a grocery store, bar, brewery and three restaurants...so 'my daily driver' gets driven about twice a week. If that. Usually just once a week on the weekend.

2016 GMC Canyon with a slight lift and some mods. I couldn't drive the Boxster as a DD. I had a problem with visibility in that thing with the top up and in rain.

Daily drive will be the new 2019 Ford Ranger Lariat that I've already ordered. At least for the winter that is.

Entirely depends on my mood and the intended roads / events. My 987S isn't my only weekend toy either.

For rallycross events and grocery getting, I prefer the V50 (AWD, turbo, manual, fully built Stage 3). My wife usually dailies this.



My C30 track car became my preferred daily on my short back road commute (caged, gutted, turbo, manual, fully built Stage 3.5 with cams) because it was fun to drive and got great gas mileage. But the engine finally gave in at 194k miles of tuned abuse. So it's parked until I rebuild it.



If I'm going to Home Depot or just not feeling it, the old F150 comes out to play. 357k miles on the original engine and factory manual transmission. She's rugged and reliable. The 4.6L V8 is the biggest engine I have and the slowest vehicle in my garage.



The rest of my cars (running or not) are just for parts and they don't usually drive far....
But there is a trend. Of the 6 cars I currently have, all have 3 pedals.

Had a Cayenne S for a long time - they can be found for little $$ if you know how to buy them they are super-reliable and fun. Needed a truck so finally got a Tundra. Miss the Cayenne but every time I need to haul something around glad I switched.
