Lurking here on occasion, I've seen no more Porsche bashing than I've seen done to BMW and MB on the Boxster Board. If in fun, it can improve the camaraderie between all of us. We all love great cars- and we all HAVE great cars. Were BMW making 4-door M3's for '99, I'd also have a BMW(Techno Violet. . .sigh).
Regarding companies and dealers, BMW is reported to be the best to it's customers by Autoweek, and from word of mouth and shopping, I'd have to agree. Porsche service is excellent, but remember that the company doesn't have BMW's resources, and it shows.
Regarding club events, I've seen more nasty, snotty condescending attitudes from 911 owners to owners of other Porsche lines than I've ever seen between Boxsters, Z3's, SLK's or even Miatas. Now that (911 owners) bunch, I'll agree, seems insecure- they can keep their "real Porsche" while Boxsters and Z3's outhandle them in the twisties.
Just my opinion,
