An AWD Porsche offers something a Vette never will.
I guess if you live by 'Ring times, then your logic follows.

Can you explain any portion of the bolded statement below?
Doesn't sound like you are joking to me.
Why is it only OK for a woman to make a decision based just on family, practicality or budget reasons?
Just sayin'.
The "man card" thing was a joke. The bolded was me prefacing an honest question. I figured there may be more to why he bought the Porsche, but I didn't know what at the time of making that post. That is why I asked the question. And again, he explained himself, and it turned out that it wasn't just the wife that wanted one -- he wanted one, too, so it wasn't a big compromise.

As for your second question, it is not OK for either partner, man or woman, to veto a decision that their SO wants to make without good reason.

As far as AWD, I assume you're talking about snow traction and whatnot, which is not a consideration for a weekend fun car, personally. My Corvette (or Porsche) would get garaged if weather was a problem. I'll take the extra power and speed, save myself $50K, and if necessary, I can spend it on an actual luxury car to drive when I want to ride around in comfort and practicality.
