Judging by my VIN, I have the 3rd one built. I put money down in late May and took delivery in August 2004.

It was a DD for a few years, then demoted to dog carrier and weekend trips. Finally, just sitting there when the much hated prius arrived. On a whim, I went to a Driver Skills class put on the Porsche club. Then a HPDE day. Passing Porsches in wagon with snow tires had a certain appeal. Then I wanted better lap times. Before I blew up the engine, I had planned on upgrading the suspension a little bit and getting a tune. And buying a Porsche 944 track car.

Looking back on the year (its been a year, give or take a couple of days since the first skills day), I should have sold the wagon and bought a caged 944. I'd have been money ahead.

Then again, a 944 has nothing on a 3rd gear romp thru traffic at 6000rpm.
