This will be my daily driver as my STi is my DD now. I have always loved Porsches and I spotted one with good miles on it for a great price.
I do have to admit, being able to lay the seats down and have SUV space is great but its just me. No wife, no kids and no family on this coast, or at least in WA.
The 91 C4 is a coupe, 5 speed, awd and is gorgeous. Of course I want reliability but I still want my 91 C4. Met a guy with 298k on his 92 C4 and he daily drives it. There would be no payment so I could always put my imaginary payment in a car fund for mods and maintenance.
Really tough decision though.
I think you should go for it. I do not regret buying 996 at all. Who knows in the future if you will ever be in a position to buy a Porsche. The good thing about the car you are looking at is that it will not depreciate nearly as much as your STi will. If you decide you don't like the Porsche you can easily sell the car with a minimal loss and get back into an STi. You will enjoy the experience of owning and driving a Porsche way more than an STi.
