Two brands I love for their pursuit of speed and driving purity

The two brands may seem far apart but they are very much alike

I paid £200 for 5 years servicing and that doesn't sound very Porsche like to me. I understand what you are saying though both are a hoot to drive on the back roads and their competitors occasionally get close but are never as pure a drive.

Some people are like a Slinky ........ not really good for anything, but you still can't help
but smile when you shove them down the stairs
