Sorry, I'm still having a difficult time understanding how someone who already owns $150k worth of a 2005 M3 and 997 911S decides to get an IS350 as a third car. It's not like the former are not capable daily drivers. And it's not like the IS350 offers more capacity with respect to passenger or trunk space. A GS450h maybe, but an IS350?
So, not to upset louiswie, but what specific 997 model do you have and why aren't you driving it 80% of the time like I am?

Why not the IS350 as a 3rd car. The Carrera is a 2dr.sports car and the M3 a sport-coupe/GT, whatever. The IS350 has 4 doors and a decent trunk. I don't need anything larger. All I was looking for was a compact, 4-door, luxury-sports-sedan. The 450h's trunk is cut in half and therefore has about the same trunk space as say, a 350Z.
And to answer your other question, I have a 997-S, stick, Black, PASM, Sport Chrono Pkg, etc....
I would love to drive it 120% of the time but I personally like to keep my favorite one for weekends or events. But don't get me wrong I still do take it out every-now and then on weekdays if I get the urge. Yes, its an awesome car and a wonderful daily-driver but I'll rack-up the miles on the M3 or IS instead.
