Thanks.
A less than smooth ride has never bothered me but rattles have ALWAYS bothered me. Very OCD on the subject.

Unless you track it a lot, you would probably be happier with a newer 'S' model, or a brand new Cayman S.

The biggest cons are cost of ownership and not being the right tool for the street.

This one has the looks of a GT3 and the civility of the S. 06' 11,000 miles for 69K asking price.

I read the GT3 is pretty loud in the cabin. Not much deadening material.

The deals I have found:

This car.
The GT3. Fading.
07 e92 335 16,000 miles $32,000..meh...but good price.
08 C63 2200 miles $51,000..no performance pkg but great price.

If you have another car to daily drive, I would definitely buy the GT3 as a weekend car.

^I do but...

I posted that the GT3 would be great because of the lack of systems trying to control the car for me. My propensity for getting amped up when engaged in spirited driving may be a bad combo with that car.

I say this after reading many reviews of people losing the back end if not careful. I am careful and would love to try and master the car but my gut tells me I would end up in a ditch sooner or later.
