Congrats! I sold mine and regret it.

My daughter cried when I sold it too and she still misses the morning roar!

Good choice, I can't bring myself to part with mine either.

I have to confess that in this long winter, my eyes and thoughts have been wandering towards a 993. . .

I'd like to keep the 1'er and add a 993 but that is "impractical" from a garage space and upkeep point of view.

Maybe when I get behind the wheel of the 1M in a couple of months, the fog will clear.

I'm trying to rationalize this exact plan! Low depreciation, raw power, killer looks. . . Might even be a good investment in 10 years!!!

Do you track either or both?

I've taken the 1M out a few times over the past two summers and had an absolute blast. My plan is to keep the mileage down and save it for the track.

The 993 would be a DD with occasional track use.

I see you're in CT. What do you in winter? We're supposed to get 8-10 inches tomorrow.

993 does some light track duty. I'm a little scared of tracking the 1M because of it's rarity, cost and most of all how upset I'd be if something was to happen.


My 993 has done 5 to 10 track days a year for the past 7 years and its a tank. fluid changes, Tires and Brake pads. No problems what so ever. Find a good one they are keepers.

My CA just lent me his M3 for the day and he used my 1M after it had a curb rash fixed. His conclusion? I should never sell the 1M. He said he tries to duplicate the feel of the 1M in his M3 since the suspension is similar.

I'm glad you didn't sell.

I drove a Cayman S and liked it a lot. It was stable, had good weight distribution, and cornered beautifully. In short, if I closed my eyes, it felt like my 1M--maybe not as fast as my 1M!

In the end, I decided that it was not as good as the 1M for what I need at this point in my life (2 seats vs 4, trunk space, uniqueness, etc.).

Driving the 911 was a whole different matter! That monstrous engine in the back acting like a pendulum was like nothing I've driven before!

I walked out wanting a 911. A 993 would be, IMHO, the best one out there.
