      Porsche's "There is no Substitute" was first used in a 1974 advertising campaign and is still used, 42 years and still going.

      Cars and Coffee Houston has been kicked out of three venues already, I guess this will be number four.

      I had three BMW's back on the day, a 330i ZHP, an E46 M3, and a Z4M Coupe. They were state of the art for their time and I finally saw what all of the hoopla was about. Sadly, nothing in their...

      I took my 991 to the dealer for services up to the 40K service. Oil service alone was about $235. The 40K service is oil change, spark plugs, cabin filters, and air filters. Replacing the air filters...

      Out of curiosity I did a search this afternoon and there's only two actually at dealers for sale in a 500 mile range from me.
      Are most of the first ones pre-sold, slow regional rollout, or both?

      I don't know nationally. Dealers were allocated GT4's partially based on how many Caymans they'd sold in the past. My high volume (at least for a Porsche store) got six of them total and three went...

      Her's a semi-related anecdote I read in this month's Panorama (PCA magazine). Folks who bought 918's are in a 10 year Porsche VIP club. Only 991 of the upcoming 911R's will be made.

      It makes me smile anytime I see a kid in the backseat of a 911. I pretty much guarantee there's nowhere they'd rather be.
      I've had third passengers in my car behind the front passenger ranging from...

      For the record, my partial leather standard interior still looks brand new at 55K miles and almost four years often sitting exposed during the day.
      I'm also careful getting in and out so no door...

      I bought my 2011 MINI with a clean Carfax at 29K miles. One owner, traded back to sister BMW dealership next door, service records, etc.
      It was immaculate inside and out but in hindsight there were...

      Are you saying that people are cross shopping a Z4M-Coupe, a Cayenne, and a 911? I think that would be unusual.

      You made a good choice, I have owned many of the same cars, E46 M3, 987 Cayman S, Z4 M-Coupe, now 991.
      I don't agree with all of your 911 beliefs, but there truly is No Substitute.
      I love my 991...

      I have 55K miles now on my 911, bought new in October of 2012. No regrets, still drive it every chance I get, my MINI is my big car.

      I'm the guy who went down to the Audi store and asked to be on the list over a year before you could even order one for the last TT-RS. Got the first one from my dealer in August of 2011. Loved most...

      In to see what this is all about.

      This is just my general experience, but most dealerships I've been in lately tend to be pretty casual in their dress code. Mainly khakis and polos, occasionally...

      I live there in the Heights and came to that spot around 6:20 this morning. White Oak Bayou, directly adjacent to this spot, had not overflowed yet but there was already some puddling in the low spot...

      So what am I missing here? MSRP for that car is $67185, the dealer's "sales price" is $72K. How much in actual $$$ are they offering it to you for? Without checking Edmunds I'm guessing invoice is...
