I try not to drink my sugar. Except

Since July 2018 I've lost, and more importantly, kept off +15 pounds. That's like 2 HP in Porsche parlance.

Coincidentally my T is 15 months old and has over 18,600 miles/smiles on the clock. It’s my sole car and also my favourite car so far by some margin. (I passed my driving test in 1988.) Porsches were conceived, designed and built to be driven, so do just that!

Well, normally I'd say something like "to each his own" or "different strokes for different folks," or something similar. But in this case, I have to say, your opinion is objectively WRONG! Or at least, it depends on the highway.

Rush hour stop and go driving on a highway is certainly no fun, even in a 911. But a curvy highway with no traffic, a good radar detector, and Waze? Oh yeah, that's good times.

This thread is making me hangry.

Like ol' Ron White says about [*****]...

Once you've seen one... you wanna see the rest of 'em.

I have access to nice twisty back roads. I have been commuting on highways around Boston for 25 years. I am just fed up with highways around congested cities. If I have to do that, I (now) prefer a quiet soft car.

FWIW the day after we bought our Cayenne, Mrs. drove it to NC to see the grandkid, then back, about 2,400 miles. My '17 Carrera is on a 10,700 mile per year pace.

14K in 15 months would not bother me at all.

What a guy. I think you mentioned DDD in one of your posts, one of our favorite shows. Liking to drive and liking to eat go together. We often drive 50 miles for breakfast. Also, Mexican is our favorite food. Our ‘18 has over 10k miles. Sorry to turn this into a food post.

Guy told me about this place in New Orleans, The Turkey & The Wolf, went last month. It was outstanding. OK, I flew for that one.

I put in my financing paperwork for the car I mentioned in the thread title post, so I officially would like to change this thread to the "I drove 200+ miles for this food in my 911." Please continue with your delicious pictures.
