I'm such a sucker for Cobalt Blue. so much so that I nearly bought a 968 Cabriolet for my wife in this color in spite of all the work it needed under the bonnet—in the end, good judgement overtook emotions and I walked away.

this one is different though, or so it seems. on the face of it, it looks clean, well looked after, coming complete with a smart reg tag that reads MUF to announce, perhaps, your passion for the opposite sex.

if the color alone doesn't blow on your embers, the Cup 1 wheels shod with meaty rubber should help seal the deal. yep, it's Tiptronic, but don't let that dismay you because rather than be a blow to your maniless should your mates find out, you can proudly proclaim in an erudite manner that this 968 doesn't simply have an automatic, but a thinking driver's automatic gearbox instead.

this, the second generation version of Porsche's fine self shifter, has five shift maps instead of two like the first generation, and, as it was co-developed with Bosch, it possesses an 8-bit microprocessor and an external 32KB-EPROM memory. so intelligent is this gearbox that it will override any stupidty a poor driver pulls off with any other automatic such as shift in mid corner...this one is programmed not to.

put another way, if you had another Porsche with a manual gearbox and you so happen to be blessed with a commute that's low on miles but taxing on time sitting in traffic playing toe tap between the accelerator and brake, this is the perfect car to be in without question. 

besides, if the Missus refuses to learn the art of synchronizing the revs-foot-hand technique a manual demands, the Tiptronic will gladly a compromise.
