What's in my garage? A whole lot more
By Mike Petrilla
A recent E-Brake inquiry from PCA asked what was in the garage or driveway. Respondents were invited to click on one of Porsche's enduring or more recent models. I made the appropriate click, 911 ('74-'89), and found myself among approximately 1,500 others. That is not where I am. When it comes to Porsche ownership, I am in a class of one. I would guess that the same goes for other Porsche owners. For myself, I offer the following "clicks" regarding the occupant of my garage.

CNET
Swapping gears yourself is a badge of pride for most. It's a little bit of extra freedom that shows that not only you can drive, but you're capable of deciding how fast your engine should be running. It's something that not everyone can do — in the U.K., if you pass your test in an automatic car you're not legally allowed to drive stick — and those who can tend to be proud of the fact.
