In reply to Giant Purple Snorklewacker:

I think that you need a hood too. This is a Singer 911 and they run many dollars. Like 6 figures is a base price.

I'm currently day-dreaming about a '99 Carrera 4 for sale at the local Lotus dealer:

Even with the low mileage, it seems about $10K over-priced according to Edmunds. Looks nice, though...

Out of the piles of cars I've owned, the 911s were the ones that always started and got me where I wanted to go. Pretty easy to work on and maintenance parts were very reasonable.

Same with my FBs, actually.

How about this: It's like owning an FB, but without the bordering-on-religious-zealotry idolization of the car's idiosyncrasies by the True Believer owner base?

Hmm, not that either...

Again, not in the $20k range, but definitely on my "To own" list...

I'll take any Slantnose, and i also need the most obnoxiously flared 930 on the face of the planet.

Rauh Welt would do nicely.

Porsche 911: It's like owning an FB, but non-car people actually think your car is cool instead of just old.
