I daily drive my Turbo. Iíve had to deal with ďenvy issuesĒ from others ever since I had my first BMW 3 series. Same people that will talk behind your back about your Turbo would do it about any car you have that they donít, or your watch, or your house, etc. theyíre just cruddy people. I stopped worrying about that a while ago.

Who cares, if you're so concerned get a used KIA and keep your Porsche home. I drive my CTT to work and wear a Porsche lanyard. I also have Porsche 911 TT 1/24th scale models on my desk and a Porsche calendar. Sometimes in-your-face shock and awe is the best and quickest solution. And BTW, if you have a 2012 997.2 you're in the wrong forum.

I donít think you should be so concerned about what others think. Would use the car and enjoy it. 911 isnít really considered that flashy as compared to the exotics and has been pointed out here most donít know the difference between the turbo and others 911ís. I did do badge delete. No reason to advertise.

I recently test drove the new DB11. I had people honking and asking what it was. I passed more because I didnít think it drove as well as a 911T and didnít care for the interior but I found the attention I was getting annoying.

I don't like the attention because now I'm obligated to give them a return kiss of their a$$ 'Oh thank you, thank you' or they want to talk about it like they own you for giving a compliment. Except for women of course.
