1. Defying the Porsche owner stereotype
By Noelle Talmon
I met a German several years ago who told me that only dentists rode Harley Davidsons in his country.

The same stereotype is often applied to Porsche ownership — only the affluent drive them.

5. Experiences of a 968 owner
By Ford Kanzler
I've owned several sports cars. After driving an Explorer and Honda Civic for several years, I was more than ready for a switch back to something a lot more enjoyable. One of my former drives was a Toyota MR2, and its agile mid-engine handling was memorable. With that in mind, a Boxster seemed like a good candidate.
