Thanks to all here on the forum, been a great but somewhat short ride, about 18 months.
Logged over 14,000 miles, driving from Wisconsin to Seattle (purchase trip), then 3400 miles to Moab and back, to see all 5 National Parks in southern Utah, a 3 day trip to beautiful Victoria, BC, and numerous trips to central Oregon.
The car, mechanically, was trouble free...the interior (4LT)... not so much. The lack of quality in materials and workmanship bugged me the entire time, had to replace the entire dash (defect in the leather), the interior trim above the windshield (bubbled), the interior trim around the halo (cracked), the driver seat base (adjusting mechanism sloppy). I still have the '72, but that may go as well to make room for the '79 911 SC...Here's the new Carrera S and the '79 SC
Will cherish THIS photo always!!!!
But...the sound of that high-revving flat 6 is intoxicating!!

I've been eyeing a Porsche myself...but ultimately the V8 power blast in a newer Vette versus whatever old Porsche I could afford is winning out for now. Your new ride looks great but I'd keep the c3 if I were you.That car looks good.
Best of luck, from one cool vehicle to another (or two).....my son bought a 350Z from Park Place Ltd. a few years back and he lives about four blocks away from there....a cool place to buy a car, enjoy
The 911 is considered by most educated car fanatics to be one of the greatest sports cars of all time. This sentiment has remained constant for as long as it has been in existence. Not everyone loves the way it looks (I'm personally not a fan). But few can fault the way it drives and handles. On the other hand ....."there is no substitute".....for an American V8.
