    Well you can't think like that, then all cars would be enoying?

    Ferrari - Douchbags?
    Porsche - Gay people?
    Aston Martin - Wannabe James Bond?

    It's about taste and feeling you have for the car. DB9 drinks alot more but which car dont drink much when you go for those brands. My 997 had a good run and probably the best car I ever had. But the time comes when you get tired of those small and fast cars and look up to something more classy and relaxing. DB9 is great like that..

    Panamera 4S?
    German reliability, Porsche sporty heritage, and 4 doors/seats to comfortably seat 4?
    Also can run in snow because of awd, so you wont miss going to work or the shops on bad weather days.
    thats what i'd get if i were to 'grow up'

    obviously it doesnt look as good as a DB9... but i wouldnt trust anyone except the japanese and the germans on something that i need to use more than just nice days only.

    My 2004 Ford Explorer threw a rod, would have cost more to fix than the car was worth, and I was sick and tired of the 9 mpg anyway I've been getting with it.

    Just got a 2012 Fusion 3.0L and I'm loving it. Almost opted for the l4, but the way I drive, I need the v6.

    My friend has panamera and it was nothing for me. A good car tho I liked it alot, but DB9 stole my heart. I was close to granturismo s but DB9 was nr 1.

    And my father has Porsche GTS so Porsche wont be out of the picture if I need to borrow it sometime [​IMG]

    a friend had a gunmetal DB9 coupe, it was a flat out gorgeous car inside and out. Some are arguing there are sportier cars but I think that goes without saying; DB9 just has an air of class.

    i mean if you are 25, id pick something gaudier like the m6 (my choice)...
    get the gaudy and vain shit outta the way before moving on to the classier stuff when i reach 30-35...
    because if you dont get it outta the way, then... you look like an idiot when you are 40 and trying to be all MTV

    gaudy is not a mandatory phase, perhaps excessive speed is but that can be done tastefully, sounds like he did that with the 997tt

    Well I had the 997 for 3 years now. I dont feel for small and fast cars anymore. Well I like fast cars but something bigger and classy (I can't figure out something nicer then the DB9)

    And when i'm 40-50 I will not drive anymore, because it's on to bigger things (RR I hope [​IMG])

    Who the hell is making up all this rules? Fuck that moving on to classier cars as you get older and getting the gaudy cars out of your system when you're younger (how many in their 20's can afford a damn Aston or R8? SFs the only place baller enough for that). 40 or 60, I don't give a damn, if I can drive an Aston or a Lambo I will. COme to think of it, Astons actually a pretty classic looking car. The Vantage will still look gorgeous 20 years from now.
