    Why go for AWD and ruin the fun in a sports car that's probably not going to be your daily driver?

    And for those people who get one as a daily and drive it through winter: Why???

    No. AWD has its advatages, but ultimately it spoils the balance of the car.

    I had AWD in my 1996 Porsche Turbo and it didn't spoil any fun, just have to balance it properly.

    I agree, stick with the RWD.

    I would argue that RWD is actually less exciting, you're constantly feathering the throttle to avoid unwanted rear tire wear or attention from the police and/or 911 dialing pedestrians. With AWD (from my experience in modern Porsche Turbos) you just get frightening, sweat inducing acceleration-even in the rain from gears 2+.
