Easy one but may invite opposite response?

Is the 993 C2S tip an everyday ride?, I do 38miles per day on major 'A' road.

Definitely.

Yes, and look at it this way: what a start to the day!

Yes(ish), No(ish).

I love, love, love driving my C2S, but I know if I drove it to work everyday (24miles into london)it would wind me up:

Hard, noisy ride.

Imperfect driving position.

Lack of a cup holder (I know that one is a bit mincy)

Concentration required on clutch for getaways.

The stress of maniac drivers in the rush hour potentially denting it.

Mine gets 10%commute and 90%pleasure use for those reasons. However, those things are not a problem for loads of other daily 911ers.

My C2 is my daily driver. On a perfect day, on the perfect road, there are not many other cars I'd rather be driving.
However, when crawling along in city traffic it sometimes feels like a very old car indeed.

I love driving my car and take every opportunity to do so. It's not that hard and only noisy when you thrash it. Buy a tip, it almost drives it's self. Get one and drive it :D

hmm.. some 'NO' votes appearing?

It's gonna have to be a tip - I've said this from the very outset, does the suspension and size of wheels/tyres have a bearing on the ride quality too?

Remember, before answering please reply with your votes first.

There is some tyre/road/suspension noise for sure. It will be worse with a C2S with firmer suspension and 18s if fitted.

If you really want a cupholder :eek:
, then you can fit them instead of the storage bin where the cassette holder was behind the handbrake- see type911's website.

On the commutes (80 miles each way) I do in my Targa from time to time, I find it great fun- even the motorway is fun.

On the -ve side, the wipers are quite noisy, which may get annoying on a wet friday in traffic.
