Dan..................please, I set back for 5 pages and bit my tongue. Any other brand that would do that, you would have attributed it to poor hull design, or how the boat was set up, or something negative about the brand. Some how you spin that into a positive for O/L.
Love your passion, use better judgement.

What a waste of money, even a Hyundai has cup holders. I guess your just overpaying for the name.

Actually poor analogy Tommy....the new 2011 911 has 550+ HP and even though the same shape, the car evolved and the new Turbo S is still at the top of the food chain when it comes to speed/handling. 0-60 is down to 2.6 which shatters just about anything on the road today! When they started the 911 had no power steering, power windows/locks/seats, no a/c, no ABS brakes etc, but all of that stuff is standard today.

BTW your 997 (being one of the last air cooled) will always be admired, even if a new Escalade has more HP!

Well then you should have known from my post that I was clearly referring to those thru the 993 series, extending into the 997 series would have put them into 40+ years of production. And....the 996 series had cupholders.

Tommy my mistake, typo. 997 is the current style, the 993 like yours was the last air cooled.

Un-biased? Did a Cig. owner just say un-biased?

Former Cig owner.....the farther they get detached from the oval the more unbiased they become!

Actually Tank is a pretty fair cheerleader, he was pretty unbiased even when he was under the "oval spell."

I'm 21 where have you been? If I was an old fart you guys wouldn't give a crap. Since I'm young it obviously hits a soft spot with a lot of you. Oh well.........it's the same bs from everyone whether they own a cigarette apache fountain outerlimits skater or mti. We all have our own opinions and so on and post so. To say none of you were/are biased is a little ridiculous
