I agree that my example was really a bad one.  I agree that they ruined 
the 911, although ruined may sound a bit strong.  While it may in fact 
perform better in numbers, i hear that the steering is not as good along 
with a miriad of other things that made the 911 a 911....

its unfortunate...but i can tell you that i will be forever lusting after 
a 1997 993TTS

That is currently the car that i will aspire to own in about 20 years or 
so...god what a car....
