Hey, I resemble that profile.  I just picked up a 97 993 cab last weekend.
My buddy who went with me to the porsche dealership to pick up my car was
interested in a boxster and so we test drove a boxster S.  Great car, nicely
refined and very easy to throw around.  I was driving more aggressively in
the boxster after 15 min than the 911 that I had test drove for 2 days.  So,
indeed I am a victim of a lifetime of marketing.  I've wanted a 911 since I
was twelve.  As I told my buddy, too bad I love 911s because the boxster s
is a great value.

But I still love my S4 as my daily driver.
