The idiots left the keys in it! Test track here I come! It was a good day to play hooky in the afternoon and head out to the auction lot.

In case you guys are wondering, the driving dynamic does differ somewhat from the 928.

Fed up with the A8L. I'm picking up something different at the auction either tomorrow or Wednesday, then the A8L is going through next week "no reserve." Looking at the inventory at the local Manheim. Much want here (2017 Panamera Turbo):
There's no auction price estimate. I wonder if it will sell below my self-imposed $20k limit?
What is that saying about insanity and doing same thing? Brand new mitsubishi mirage is below your self imposed limit, you should buy it. The money you save on that car, if invested in diversified income funds should be enough to buy you a nice used 991 in 10 years. 👍

You know you're driving a 996 when you flip on your turn signal to make a turn, look down and almost have a heart attack because there is a blinking light on your dash... :shock:

Couple of weeks ago when I took it to the dealer about the blinker problems I left the airbag out to rob them of some labor.

Going down the highway I glance down to see the airbag light on and had a brief "WTF now??" moment :roll: :lol:
