Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! (Incoming Missile)    <KABOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM>

Objective speaking, other than looks, what is it you don't like about 
Porsches?   Does the (VW-powered) 914, 911 or 944 beat you in Solo II?  
Enquiring minds want to know.  

Prior to the 944T, I had an '87 RX7, which while providing decent 
perf, IMO did not have enough, how shall we say, *character*, i.e. utterly 
boring to drive fast.  Prior to that, an '87 8V Gti, more fun, easier to 
toss around. Prior to that, a '75 911 Targa (lesson on NOT buying a Porsche 
while still in college skipped but as I remind my Dad, I made money on this 
I have to say the 944T is the *best* car I've owned on all scales of 
perf/price/value/maintenance.  If you can do your own maintenance, it's not 
any more expensive than an Audi to maintain.
