Well, sure. But it's not like we're renting a car for this trip.

A base 981 for $130-something a day is not remotely appealing. Nor is a 991.1 for $330-something. That's just ... no.

Maybe you need to strike some sort of barter deal with JST.

Maybe he needs a heavy duty pickup for a week to, I dunno, pull his house down or something?

The more I think about Caymans and Boxsters, the more I keep coming back to the GTS 4.0. The GT4 never did it for me (because wing) but the GTS pulls hard.

Those are never going to be affordable, are they?

Yep. It's the one to get and keep. If you can do the former.

Maybe I should start talking to my dealer about an allocation. If they laugh at me and punt until 2025 then I know where I stand.
