And this chart?

Well, today I bought a new car.

Picture and details behind the cut.






It's a Porsche 911 996 Carrera 2 in deep purple with grey leather interior and GT3-style aerokit. Test drove it today. It's slightly higher mileage than I was looking for, but a long way below my budget. Pick it up on Wednesday.

I have always loved the shape of Porsches (unlike certain people, hem hem, hem)

I just hope it's as nice to drive as it is to look at.

I don't usually go for Porsches, but that really does look good! Congrats.

Deep purple, possibly the coolest colour ever for a car :-)

Smoke ... on the water ...

Oh, sorry, did you mean a different deep purple? ;-)

It's a limited edition colour called "viola" apparently.

You'd be amazed how many 911s are silver with black interior. I know silver is the official racing colour for German cars, but that's a very dull colour combination.

I approve the colour, I just hope the hedges survive!

If you follow that first link, you'll see that you previously said about 911s, in a Princess Leia stylee:

"You came in that? You're braver than I thought!"

Having re-read the thread, my actual words were - "someone might say...." I didn't necessarily mean I wold say it (though I might be thinking it!)

Purple was definitely getting a thumbs up in the original posts, but the Porsches weren't high on your list of lookers. So have you changed or were your aesthetic opinions overruled by your spreadsheet?
