Jason - Good job putting up the fight, but those guys will never get it. I am a big Porsche fan, but I don't get the mentality (of BMW guys, either). How many of those guys take their cars to the track? I bet not many. Their humility would grow very quickly (if not displayed outwardly). My favorite comment was the one about how the Evo is ugly like a Pinto with a bodykit... LOL. I forgot how "dead sexy" the Cayenne is... Or the spectacularly beautiful 914.

I thought everyone here would get a kick out of it. It's funny how the wrx/sti and the evo really rub some people the wrong way. The funny thing is that I love porsche and was not downing the marque...I think my original point was that it doesn't make sense to me to spend close to $90k on a new c4s over a used TT.

I need to remember that my little 2.0 litre runs out of steam over 60

for us people that does not have $90k to spend on a car, it doesnt make sence. but for them, it's just a drop in the bucket. I would buy a 996 or a GT2 in a heart beat if I had the mulla...

think of it this way.. you have $40 in your wallet and you see something you like that is $30. You think twice in buying it..

you have $100 and you see something you like for $30... the hesitation to buy it is not that great... it is easonable at that moment.

porsche'a ROCK!! some people just have to stop being car owners and start being a car enthusiast .

I hope that's not directed at Jason and I... If you read the thread in the link, you'll see that the Porsche owners need to adopt that philosophy.

Hell, I find the excitement in some of the $14,000 econo superminis in the UK...

I just would like to add something how many people drive their porsches thru the winter? rain or as dialy driver probably not many.
"EVO is ugly like a pinto with bodykit?" iam not going to bash other rides i love porsches, but this guy needs to learn something there is no bodykit on evos meybe on his porsche. or someone posted " evo is for kiddies" right mr porsche guy and you are probably 40+ with deep money pocket all you do is "CLEAN" "MEETING" "GARAGE" thats all.

You guys are absolutely right-they just don't get it. At the last two events at Mid Ohio with a BMW club and a Porsche club, several people came over to ask me what in the hell it was.When I said an Evo VIII they said wtfit? Very few cars in A group where I ran or in B group where my daughter ran were able to get buy us. I currently have a 944 turbo track car-408RWHP and a C2S2 Turbo of which there were only 20 made(341RWHP) which I have also tracked. My first event is coming up at Mid Ohio in April. What will we be driving the most? The Evo, which will have completed the Buschur Stage 4 mods by then. So, let the Porsche and BMW people stay in their never never land.

People always try to justify their investment.
I find people that bash someone elses car childish. I used to be like that years ago until I really started enjoying cars.
Every car has something special, even if it's a most common malfunction
Evo is a great little car. I was very sceptical about buying it because of interior looks but after you drive it, you don't even care. It becomes a couple of pedals, shifter, a steering wheel and an awesome 4wd.

thats total BS what alot of those "P" guys say. just stupid. I bet 99% of them have never driven a evo so they really have no idea what there talking about when they bad muot the car, which is stupid.

My dad has a boxster S . .. granted its not a 911T or whatever, but its still a porsche, we took it down to hilton head one spring break ** last year ** and it was one of the wrost road trips i've ever been on.

Now - i've driven in EVO's before, not 10 hour rides but long enough to tell if its going to be a good ride or just get me the hell outta this car ride. And the evo just totally felt better. Sure it doesnt ahve heated leather seats, but its a sports car damnit, it shuldnt!

Just my thoughts
