2013 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet

This 911 is better than ours for four reasons. Its color is number four. You guess the first three.

    #1 - it's not a cabriolet; #2 - you are not the one who's on the hook for the $15k worth of color-matched interior trim I know it has; #3 - I dunno.

    Fixed roof, MUCH more attractive wheels, manual?

    Someone sure did check a lot of "XXX in body color"! Yes, the fact that it is the coupe would be number one. The really large wheels probably mean that its not a base model (or at least it should, hard to tell these days), I would say an S and not a turbo because of a missing air vent, so that's number two. Manual transmission would be three. Finally better color in at number four.

    If it has broken ceramics in it I don't want one. I'll take ceramic brakes, though. It's a coupe makes it better for me. I would not call those wheels better. It's better because there is a cute kid in the picture?

    Most of you know how I think. Here's my list: 1. Coupe. 2. It's an S. 3. Kid in bee costume. 4. Color.
