There was a debate on the 968 forum about what kind of car was best to run to accompany your Porsche. Unsurprisingly, older VWs, BMWs and Mercs seemed to be the bangers of choice, but there was an equally vehement argument for running a Porsche as your only car, which was admittedly persuasive. I have a VW New Beetle as my daily driver, and it means the Porsche is spared the horrendous dose of salt which the local authorities now deem it necessary to lager everywhere, seeing as Joe Motorist can't contend with so much as a dusting of frost any longer!
My 968 has therefore seen precious little use since about November, as I'm paranoid about getting salt in the brake callipers, and only in the last few days have the roads been salt free enough to enjoy it again. The above arguments were largely about the economics of it all, but ripping thro the spring countryside in the 968, I discovered the real answer, and it's all about contrast. Just as sweet versus sour enlivens your tastebuds, driving something more mundane on a daily basis, only heightens your awareness of just how good a Porsche really is, be it cooled by air or water.
The downside is that if I drove the 968 every day, I just know I would start to get blasé about the speed it can do, and perhaps more importantly, the ease with which it can do it. It's why I gave up fast bikes, basically in the hope of retaining my licence!
So I'll be quite happy to ride my Harley as an appetiser, drive the Beetle as my main course, and relish my occasional Porsche pudding!
968 Meeting at Oulton Park
It is quite rare to get more than a few 968s
together in one place at any one time due to the cars not being the most
common Porsches around.
