Am I the only one?

Who wants a slant nose Porsche? Even after all these years, I still love the slant nose look. I'll never forget one day when I was caddying at Northmoor country club back in the day, there was a DP 935 convertible white with red/blue graphics parked in the lot. I had seen many other Porsches and Ferraris, but this one made me stop and say HOLY CRAP. This one is pretty tame in color, but still sexy as hell.

I hate Porsches.

They're for old, worn out ex-PED users, you know?

Nice, but I like the way the one you have/had looks better.

I used to be a big fan of the slant nose. I had a framed poster of a red DP in my bedroom at my parents.

The problem with the factory slant noses is they run hot when driven at high speed. If they don't have a 930S type oil cooler, the car is just for posing.

There is a factory turbo slant at my friends shop that has all the good Ruf upgrades that is BFA.

I like them, but not $48l like them!

They are cool, but there are a lot of other cars I remember from my caddy days. Lots of guys had the lotus Espirit's. Personally, I dig the Ferari 348's

Me too, plus $48k is crazy for one.

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.

I kind of like them, but the front end makes it look like it's asleep.

If the movie Cars had a slant nose in it, it would be sleeping the entire time
