New Car

...but not mine. My immediate boss bought a Porsche 911 Carrera 4 Cabriolet yesterday and I got to drive it around the block earlier this afternoon. I like it! I got to about 70mph in 3rd gear and it has six gears. It weighs about the same as my Z (3200 lbs.) but it has more horsepower (325hp vs. 287hp) and a manual transmission. My butt definitely felt like the 911 accelerated faster than my Z. The convertible top was pretty cool too; it goes up/down with one button and the whole process takes only a few seconds. And it has rear seats... but for small children only.

I still like my Z and the 911 does cost about 2.5x, but if I had $90k to spend on a car, hmm...
