Porsche 911 Carrera 2

As the odometer clicked over to 90,000, it struck me how irrational we (by which I mean Harry) were being when we decided to buy a 993 Carrera. Okay, so early depreciation meant that the Porsche wasn't massively expensive to buy and nor should it shed much more of its value. However, it occurred to me that another car on our fleet, the Nissan 350Z, shows just how committed to the Porsche cult you need to be to opt for an unwarrantied, ten-year-old 911.
