You are not wrong about the Porsche image thing...the majority are driven by people who care little for the dynamics, with very few bought for the purpose of driving. At a recent Porsche Club driving day / lunch...many 'Porsche owners' chose to turn up in their 'everyday' cars as it was a bit wet, and they can't be taking their expensive ornament out in the wet! Pathetic. I'd still live with the image of 'mid life crisis', 'small penis' or 'estate agent' rather that that of the TT...or heaven forbid, an Astra VXR. Blimey...I couldn't wear enough Burberry to get in an Astra VXR!
