    Re: horrible color

    Since this thread started I picked up a black Macan Sport Edition. (I miss my Cayman but it was time for a change.) The rear window/hatch is a dust magnet. I don't even have to drive the Macan. ...

    Re: 987.1 vs 987.2

    I had a 987.1 and a 987.2. I liked the 987.1 better because it felt like it had more torque.

    Re: Should I sell it?

    I am thinking about four options -


    Keep what I have.
    Get a new 718.
    Find a used Carrera.

    From the driver's seat I could always see the spoiler on my 987 when it deployed.

    However, I would still check the tires.

    Thanks for the comparison. It is getting close to the time for me to turn in my 981 (or just buy it). Haven't made up my mind. I'm really interested in what you have to say about your new 718.
