Question Porsche 911 or Ferrari 348ts/tb ?



I'm contemplating getting another car maybe next summer.
I am trying to decide whether going with a 1996 Porsche 911 , or a 1990-1993 Ferrari 348ts/tb. I know both cars are gonna be extremly high on maintenance and stuff....
The Porsche is a lil less money than a 348.
Here's some specs on both cars:

Actually . Porsche is rated at:
Power: 300 hp @ 6800 rpm
Torque: 350 NM @ 4600 rpm
O-60 mph: 5.4 sec

and Ferrari is rated at:
Power: 300 bhp @ 7200 rpm
Torque: 237 lb-ft @ 4200 rpm
0-60 mph: 5.2 sec



What would you get if you had to choose between these 2 cars ?

This one is for sale in the autotrader this week.

damn, makes me wanna hold back on doin up my bimr and save fr a porsche 4-5 years down the road....good payin job and livin at home really does help

but headin downtown every weekend and spending 100s at the club each time and goin out every other night to shoot the shit at bars doesnt help much + insurance + school + phone/gas .....

watever im bein a baby right now anyways, a well payin job is what i have its just managin the dough that flows is the pain in da assss when you really want the rieger this and hamann that

My buddy's dad had a ferrari 348 and I got the luxury to driver it when I went to my friends house and his dad was away.....There was no power steering and the shiftgates were a pain in the ass.....It had a friggin sweet exhaust note......
The 911 is a much much better choice, I just love the 96 models!!!!

the majority of girls will be like, "oh, he has a porsche".....OR "oh my gaaad, he has a ferrari !!" .....

girls will associate the ferrari with money...

most girls don't know much about cars.....and atomaticaly think that ferrari is the best car, since it is such a "prestiges thing"

you know what i mean ?
