Nice weekend car

Always wanted a 911 since I was about 12. Bought one in my 40s. Had this one 13 years now, still feels as special t drive as when I bought it. Compared to say a Merc, its noisy , teeth rattling on poor roads, twitchy handling especially the front end, brakes are not great due to light front in greasy conditions. Its not super fast, below 4k slower than a diesel, above 4k howls and surges forward in an exciting way, but not stupidly fast. Its a fun occasional car and I have no plans to change it, I drove a new one which was much better, but not quite as raw, so I was not sad to get back into my old car. I just really love it, feels like an old friend, never let me down and had some great cross country drives in it. Only do about 2k miles per year in and know it inside out as I maintain it. Parts are not bad, radiator 80 pounds etc, although there are three!
