I almost bought a Porsche back in 1971, when I was trying to decide between a Porsche and a Jaguar E-Type. I favored the Porsche, but my wife liked the looks of the Jaguar (who doesn’t?). So I bought the Jag.
Thirty years later, I finally got my Porsche: a 2002 911 Cabriolet. I wanted something that went fast, handled well, and had back seats suitable for grandchildren. It’s been all that.
