Whoops, didn't look at its tailpipes or the badging... :D Which is a good thing, meaning it's a relatively stealthy car.

Also, straight line speed is surely nice but I'd rather have a car that handles better than one that is faster in a straight line.

Of course! As long as you prefer the 996.1 to the 996.2, that is. Oh, and you'd also need to at least tolerate the Aerokit/GT3 rear wing.
Dude tolerate? I live for the Aerokit on the 996.1.

some day I'll own a 996 or 997.. or 993 or 964.. or 70s or 80s 911.. or cayman 987 or 981

honestly, I could see getting a 996 or 997 and a 987.

But this 970.2 is my perfect primary car right now.

I think these look better by the day.
I don't, the roofline and DLO treatment in the rear are horrendous. The second generation improved on both accounts massively.

Anyway congrats @rootrider for getting a car that looks great on the inside and is (probably - never had a chance to drive one) a blast to drive. Both are solid reasons to overlook stylistic shortcomings on the exterior.

Ironic for someone named after a vehicle that can only run on rails :p

What I can't get while riding a tram I need to compensate while driving a car. :p

And yeah, those old Czechoslovakian ČKD Praha KT4 trams do have quite decent acceleration for trams. But now I'm just derailing a thread (pun intended), again.
