2012 Porsche 911

I know there are haters that have their reasons, but IMO the 911 is one of the most iconic sports cars of all time, and it's style is simply timeless.

And a SEVEN-speed MTX?

Yeah I've considered getting a Porsche on several occasions but it just isn't practical enough for me. They are without a doubt one of the most engineer-centric manufacturers out there. It's a shame that it's ladened with such a rep. To say it's a midlife crisis chick magnet isn't really doing the overall design and engineering that goes into it justice. IMO

Oh, trust me...I respect what that car has been and always will be. I have raced them (as a crew member) and won. We almost NEVER worked on that car. Set the tire pressures, add fuel, wipe it down, win the race. They rock......but.....for those that have lots of cash that dont care about racing (old guys not like me. lol) they pull more tail than a toilet seat. Those guys could care less...as do the chicks creaming the leather with the top down on their way to the Hamptons

Too much? lol

I hope they addressed the IMS (intermediate shaft issue).
IMHO, Porsche stopped making widowmaker 911's in the 90s. These late models aren't nearly as hair-raising to drive, but very cool nonetheless.

I think chicks dig famous Euro brands. L.Vuitton, E.Zegna, E.Ferrari, or F.Porsche,... not Chevrolet.

I've wanted one of these since my neighbor lady bought one in 1983. (I was 13). A gorgeous white SC Targa that I was infatuated with. These cars have always been about the evolution of an icon, and I'll always dream of owning one.

Now that's a true 911 vintage.

I'd love one of these revivals:
