Couple of "real" pics. Snow makes a nice backdrop even if I don't actually take the car out in it...

Very sexy 911! Love the wheels on it.

No kidding. That car is hot. I exported a 996 Turbo S (coupe) to Switzerland like 6-7 years ago. That car was wicked fast; can only imagine what yours is like on the open road.

Just got it in November, but already starting to think about track and or autocross. Do you track the Lotus? I almost bought an Elise when they came to the us. Was on the waiting list but dropped off when I got my M roadster.

I have not tracked the Lotus yet. I have wanted to but just haven't had the time. I know a few that track Evora's almost every weekend. They are robust cars for for going to on off track.

Is your car PDK or manual?

It's a PDK. No more manual in 2016 turbos. I know they dropped manual recently but not sure if it was this year. Traded in the M and miss it for about half a second, but can't complain as this is about twice as fast. Finding time will definitely be the issue for me as well as far as track goes...

My friend had a '14 Cayman S with PDK and traded it on '15 997 base with manual. The PDK is neat, but I am still wanting to row my own. I like how the Porsche you can go up or down on either side of the wheel and the two gear kick down. Along with the more mechanical feeling when the PDK engages vs. a conventional slush box auto...

I just can't warm up to owning an automatic for a sports car still. I traded in the XK because it was an automatic and passed sweetheart deal on an IPS new Evora. That could change. When my S2000 lease ended years ago, I went right for the automatic sedan...

If you are ever in Natick, check out European Performance Engineering on Rt 135. They are Porsche specialty shop. I was in there about a month ago and they were rebuilding a 959 engine! How many times does one ever even see a 959, never mind with the engine besides it.

I had it for a year and a half but wanted something in the 3 sec 0-60 range with a duel clutch. The exhaust sound on the mazzi was pretty insane though and you can get one for under 83K now with few miles.

Plus owning a lambo has always been a boyhood dream

I'm a car whore.

Some rides past and present

1967 Camaro
1978 Landcruiser FJ40
997 911 C2S (gone)
997 911 C4S (gone)
2010 V8 BMW M3 drop top (gone)
2009 BMW X5 V8 (gone)
2010 Cadillaic Escallade (gone)
2014 Lexus LX570
2012 Audi A6 (gone)
2013 Audi S4 EPL Stage II

There's been lots more and I almost did the Lamborghini thing too, but for some reason didn't. I'm an idiot I've spent more on cars in my life than most spend on houses. I'm trying now to be grown up about it, but it is very hard to do.

My favorite and the one I regret letting go was the C4S. It was a manual and I drove it every day. There is no better daily driver on earth (at least for me). I miss it every day.

996 GT3, absolutely love it. Previously had a 1995 RX-7 which was awesome, but always worried about something going wrong. GT3 has a very familiar feel as the FD without worrying about the engine blowing.

On the flip side is the raptor that gets abused as often as I can go. Say what you want about Ford, that thing has been through hell and back with very few issues. 75' jumps are not what it was engineered for...

Very cool GT3, that car is a keeper sports car. Saw the Porsche cup recently at the Canadian GP.

Got some new shoes for the Z. Still need to finish bleeding the brakes, but had enough pedal to allow me to pull it out of the garage.
