    Amen. Now for God's sake, wash that beautiful car

    Exactly why I like the 911 over the Boxster - beauty and the back seat. But is that worth an additional $30K?

    I can't believe you parked so close to other cars. I've only got a Speed3 and I park the thing in the farthest corners of lots to avoid door dings. Drives my family nuts.

    My RX-8 R3 has more backseat room (by pure numbers) than an Audi A5/S5 and has "freestyle" doors that allow better ingress/egress, but I only jokingly call it a "daddymobile." A sports car fulfills the duty of the extra fun car. I have the minivan for hauling my kids.

    You know, there is only a relatively small window of time during which the kids are old enough to get in and out of their seats unassisted, but small enough to fit on that little shelf we pretend are backseats in a sports car.
