After taking the car off the market for the winter, I put it back a couple of weeks ago and it's now sold. Sniff. It's for the best, it was just sitting in the garage most of the time and that's a waste. I guess I lost the old car edge and I do long for the creature comforts.

What's next? I don't know. After you've had a custom built car, there's just few cars out there that can give you the same raw performance. That and everything out there is so damn heavy. Really the only modern car that meets my nimbleness requirements is the Lotus Elise 2. But a) it's too small for me and b) it's even less practical than my 911 was.

Realistically, I'm going to hold out for a Cayman with a sequential transmission. Surely, one of these days Porsche has to get over their NIH and source that DSG from Audi or build their own for non-racing applications. We'll see.

I guess that means that either way, this account of my RS reverie has come to a conclusion. It's been a fun ride.
