Sport bike or Porsche?

I have been thinking about getting myself a new toy seeing as my truck is all paid for. I had been pondering another sport bike just for fun. I then started thinking that maybe another sports car would be more fun, and practical so that I could take my wife, and my dog along, which would be out on the bike. I found a really nice used 2006 CBR600RR at a local dealership for $6000 all in, which I could just walk in and buy right now, but then I also found a beautiful Porsche 968 locally for $15,000. The bike would be fun, and I could do all the maintanence on it no problem. The car is quite a bit more, but is a very rare car, and I've always wanted one. I could do most of the maintanence, but parts are VERY expensive. Decisions, decisions. What do you think?

I do want the car more, just worried about the potential cost of parts/ maintenance. My two previous Porsches were great cars, and very reliable, BUt when things needed to be replaced, it was crazy expensive! Brakes were like 4 times the $ of our trucks, and it just goes up from there.

If the Porsche will cost too much to maintain then get a different sports car.

Does sound like the Porsche is the better choice for you, but a big drawback is the cost of maintenance...I think another "sportscar" could be a good option, that, or make friends with a Porsche technician asap

But me personally, I also think its whichever one you will get the most "bang for your buck" out of. I am biased, but I own a sport bike and track it. On the track, its awesome. And I also know that tracking a 4 wheels would be more expensive for me...thus I would take the bike. But on public roads, I think I'd have more fun in a car...maybe

Its a win-win situation if you think about it...

Personally I'd rather a car than a bike. Then again I've never ridden a bike so perhaps I can't give a valid opinion. Although I've never been a huge fan of the 968. I'm in the same boat as you to an extent though. My truck is paid off I've toyed with the idea of getting a secondary fun car.
If I were to get a Porsche it would be a 1996-ish 911 turbo, however I know that will NEVER be remotely in my price range lol. But that's my fav Porsche.

Back in the mid 90's, I was a bouncer for a local strip club. I remember one night some dbag came to the club in one of those trying to act like a big baller. He asked one of the dancers if she wanted to see his new Porsche. When she walked outside, she looked at it and immediately said "Oh, that's the poor man's Porsche". I've never looked at that car the same since.

Ah the 914. I would rock one. They make great road race cars. Also I am poor.

Because strippers have so much good breeding right?
