:) How would you compare your cars? 997 4s was quite a culture shock for me in terms of handling, such a planted car it was.

My 964 C2 loved to try to kill me on cloverleafs (cloverleaves?) on a regular basis. I've never noticed either my 996 C4 or 996tt try to do that. I wouldn't put it past them, but never caught them trying it.

The 928 is rarely, if ever, driven in anger.

As a matter of fact, I don't know if it can even get angry anymore.

Yeah it does appear that it might be a bit hard to drive...
