don't talk about the investment to make a street car go fast ! It's taboo ;-)
Tactile excitement is a good way to put it.

Repacement ? Dunno really I still enjoy my 964Turbo a lot... Still a damn fast car. Also the 996 and the 997... some day may be a 991 or 992.
Where you are now my advice would be to give the Cup cars a go. I see some trailer space in that garage ! But once you take that step...
996/997/991CUP none of them will let you down, they have it all, sensations, speed, involvment, tactile excitement and running costs !

Right now I am just doing DE and improving my skills. Most of the fun comes from driving with friends, which is why I tend to use different tires. Getting a cup car would totally shift the balance of power, so that may be overkill for my use case. There is also this silly thought of being able to convert the car back to stop for day to day enjoyment. And while I already have a trailer, not sure my wife would approve another toy!

If I continue this hobby the most logical thing would be to do some type of amateur racing, like a spec mustang or a comparable GT car (M3, etc.). But that approach takes a lot of the fun out of it, as winning ends up being the focus. Let's see how it all goes!

i like the older cars. Similar feel. Little less pace. Very fun.

Adi when I get my 964 up to NorCal this summer you can take it for a spin. :-)

If i were to get a 'new' car for a track b*tch it would be a 991.1RS. They're on the downswing, massively fast and capable.

More fun and more skill to drive at limit compared to the 997? probably not, but they are fast for sure.

funny you mention mustang.... gt350 are seriously cheap by porsche standards. biggest issue is they are FAT. I'm used to a 3k lb gt3rs ad my 2650 lb 964. Those things stock are like 3800 lbs. Sound SO good tho.
