Isn't she a beauty?
I finally took the plunge and bought her.

(Picture actual size, but taken from many many years away).

Whoops, wrong picture.
It is hard to see the screen with all the drool on it sometimes.

Here is the actual Porsche I bought this weekend.


(Picture actual size, taken with the funds from right now).
Hey, sometimes a person needs more motivation than the love of patents for working.

Growing up, my siblings and I had this constantly beat into our heads
"Porsche Porsche Porsche Porsche Porsche Porsche Porsche.." (you get the idea?)

Here is the famous line from Gone With the Wind redux:

"Do you mean to tell me, Megan Kathleen, that Porsches - that a Porsche 911 doesn't mean anything to you? Why, Porsche's are only thing in the world worth working for, worth fighting for, worth dying for, because they are the only thing that lasts."

So I am determined to buy one, and hopefully before I am in a nursing home with my driver's license revoked.

Let's try some simple math- if a Porsche is approximately 65000 euros, and I save a 100 euros a month, that is how many trillions of years before I have enough money to buy one?

I hate to burst your bubble, but by the time you save €65.000, the Porsche will cost €100.000. Actually, that's the problem with saving for anything these days. I can remember when I was a LOT younger, people would save to buy something, but it simply can't be done now.

I do not know...It is just a car...an impractical car for that matter:)))))

Well, while we are still on Fantasy Island, we will assume that the interest earned on my 1000€ savings is enough to cover any possile inflation, plus insurance and gas prices. Though by that time, everything might be wind powered for all I know.

Megan -- you forgot the line. It is land is the only thing that last. Once you buy the damn Porsche you will have to save every month more money for the oil change. Sport cars really are crap and need repairs all the time.
