Additionally, I've found that on Rennlist (and anywhere else in life) namecalling is just not an acceptable form of dissent. Just giving you the heads up, fellow Porsche owner.

Schlag,
My bad. Name calling definitely has no place anywhere and I do apologize. I appreciate the heads up. As you know, we are all passionate about our p-cars... Again, apologies.

Okay, serious question here, back to Cheney's original post:

Low mileage, Full service history, mint condition, early 964 and Boxster S. Both in the colour you love, for a fair price.

Which would you pick?

Personally, I'd pick the 964.

All things considered, I would choose the 964 too.

I like coupes better than soft tops.

Do we have muscles in the belly? I would imagine you can all guess my choice, the 964!

I'm choosing the 911 because I like "tail happy" cars. I like the classic "911" look, and the Boxster doesn't have that. Even w/ the hardtop.

The 986S is a great looking car, and performs great too, but it's not a 911, and given the choice... 964 all the way.

Note: I'd be thrilled to have EITHER next to my 944 turbo.

There is no question that the Boxster - especially the S - has MUCH more refined handing than any 911 (well, maybe a C4 is close ) but they are totally different driving experiences, and both are excellent in their own way. I don't think the older 911s are THAT much more expensive to fix than so called normal cars. I had to put a clutch in my son's Suzuki that cost nearly the same as for my 911.

I also have to agree that the tailwagging behaviour of the REAC is quite a bit of fun properly managed, but the neutrality of the Boxster, not to mention the creature comforts, are truly awesome. Power on the Boxster S is great, and unless you are going for a Turbo 911, which is in itself a completely different driving experience, the Boxster is hard to beat.

Finally, while I think the 911 coupe - any year - is a better looking car than the Cab or Targa (not to say the others aren't also great looking), my idea of a sports car is that it needs to be able to go topless. The Boxster may be the finest looking roadster this side of the 550 Spyder.

Ok, so my question for all of us, if you could add another p-car to sit along side your current one, what would it be? For budgeting since I would probably choose the new GT, let's say the max would be 1 year's pay.

Mine would be a 98 993 triple black convertible to sit next to my 97 black C4S.
