it's not BS. I was just asking a simple question. That's it. And the reason I haven't given you a comparison is because I can't. I have driven a 993 but never a lotus.... well I take that back. I drove an Exige once.

I can't comment because I simply don't know. All I wanted to do was figure out WHY you want a 993

When I said "2 totally different rides" I thought you were comparing to an Exige. In which case that is obvious

The Exige is nearly impossible to get in and out of despite your size.

It is not a daily driver by any means unless you like to drive a go cart. It is a 2 seater and not a 4.

It is a 4cyl and is supercharged. It's weight is over 1,000lbs different.

What more can I say?

A 993 Carrera laps the Ring in 8 min 17 sec.

Exige is at 8 min 32 sec.

IMO, no. you haven't been able to support your "2 totally different rides" comment.

Glad you found it because now I can get off the computer and know that at least one more person has a better perspective on 911's
