    I rode up behind a black Taycan at a traffic light yesterday. Nice looking car. Wide.

    A silver/black 993 C2S with ~60k miles sold on BaT last week for 171K. You can probably make a lot more than 30K if you still have it.

    My new 991.1. Purchased it yesterday! Such a fun machine. Looking forward to taking it out on the winding Driftless Area roads :)

    Both of you Mokes have good taste. After owning a 911s (2008) for six years and having way too much fun I came to a conclusion. That d@mn thing was too fast and capable, it was almost too good. Autocross was a joke, 911s are just not great at that. Road racing on the other hand is transcendent.
    All that said, if I ever "do it again" I'm with Matt. I'd find a 70's Targa, underpowered and about the most gorgeous thing on wheels. Rowing that thing around a RR course or on backroads would be just right.
    Basically, I was p!ssed off that Miatas are so fast around corners ;)

    Yeah, long hoods and older 911 are nice but they are old shitty cars at the end of the day :)

    Yup.
    I would have opt’ed for something less offensive. Like growing a mullet.

    At least, being a German car, it would escort a truckload of decent beer …

    We need a recording of "Smokey and the Bandit" in German, mit yodeling.

    Nach Osten gefahren und runter, beladen und gefahren
    A-wir ​​werden tun, was sie sagen, kann nicht getan werden
    Wir haben einen langen Weg vor uns und eine kurze Zeit, um dorthin zu gelangen
    Ich bin auf dem Weg nach Osten, schau nur zu, wie der alte "Bandit" läuft
    Halten Sie Ihren Fuß fest auf dem Pedal
    Sohn, vergiss die Bremsen
    Lass alles rumhängen, denn wir müssen rennen
    Die Jungs in Atlanta sind durstig
    Und es gibt Bier in Texarkana
    Und wir bringen es zurück, egal was es kostet

    well something quite the opposite is this 918 that sold for $1.55M. Lately lots of Porsche showing up BaT including an '05 Carrera GT with 250 miles (sold for $2M) and currently a 959 that is headed towards $2M. What I dont understand is mid 90s Toyota Supras going for 6 figures

    But the 959 is still not street legal in the US. So you are limited to how much you can drive them for display....
    But 2mm for a car that sold back in the 80's for $225k, not bad... although you'd done better with 225k of MSFT (0,54 to 336) or AAPL (0.32 to 171 ) . . .

    Yeah but MSFT and AAPL shares do not really help in setting up your money laundering scheme as much as art and vintage cars.
