Porsche's 7th Generation 911; the 2013 991

I was fortunate to be invited to test drive the new 2013 991 (yes, they went from 997 to 991 - go figure) today at Homestead Raceway in Miami.

This car is amazing. 911's just keep getting better.

I envy you.

I toured the Porsche museum three months ago..
Anyone who loves the marque should do so.

How does a guy get invited to do such things? I would love that.

(I know they're not going to invite me, I have to wait unil they are over ten years old to afford one!)

Nice. The 991 is my next car. Just have to wait to get permission from the SO so I can actually live to enjoy it.

My boss got an invite, you have to be a good customer of the local dealer usually.

Buy an older Porsche and join the local affiliate of the Porsche Club of America. (PCA.Org)

Super fun club and sometimes we get to drive the latest models at club events.

The easiest way is to already own one. It is easier to upsell a current customer than find a new one.
