I am the same age as Onami and I don't have grey hair--it's Artctic Silver!

Bought my first (few) 993s "last year."

After "temporarily" having a 914 for 28 years before being (almost) reasonably able to afford a 911 at age 48 and acquiring the one in my avatar. I'll be celebrating the 14th anniversary of my 48th birthday shortly.

I am 35. I bought mine 3 years ago when I was 32.
I am definitely one of the younger guys at the PCA meets but I am always pleasantly surprised to see how many young folks are there are too!

Picked mine up 3 years ago, I was 39 at the time. Going grey but still lots of hair Never looked back at fulfilling my lifelong dream. Already met so many great people since owning my car. The only questions I have is, why did it take me so long. Oh I know, I just needed to get a divorce to get approval.

Got my first 993 at 35. Now 36, and still only one 993.
Should have bought 6 years ago when the prices were manageable and I was on the lookout.

- 55 years young.
- I don't look old (when people learn my true age they are often surprised) but I also don't look young.
- I do have some grey which is only now starting to show, so perhaps soon I will begin looking my age. D'Oh
- Despite all this, I still refuse to grow old, at least I refuse to grow old mentally.
- In March I will have owned my 1997 993 C2 for 10 years
- Because I also picked up a used 2010 997.2 C2S last summer, I likely will need to attempt to sell the 993.

On another front this poll should have included an option for 20 year olds. After all there are some people out there who were born into wealth and/or do have a very high paying profession (such as a pro athlete) who could afford a Porsche in their 20s. Not me of course as I was not born into wealth and anything I have today (I am not rich but I am also not poor) was the result of hard work. So yeah there will be some 20 something year olds not represented in this poll. but it's also just a Rennlist poll. So it's not a biggie if we ignore the young'uns. haha

51. I own a 1995 993 and a 2004 gt3. I have owned the 993 for 6 years and the gt3 for 3. One of my greatest regret is not doing it sooner.

45 - bought my SC at 28 (still have it), my 993 at 41 and my 911T just recently. Truth be told the 993 was originally purchased for my wife.
