Way cool, kids are a blessing, or is that challenging? How about a hitch and a small trailer?

I'm thinking about getting Fred to prototype a new hood with 4 little glass bubbles then bolt 4 seats into the front

The wife wants me to sell the boxster





















And buy a 911 but I prefer the boxster haha she has her Honda so we just convoy for now

Congratulations!
Ditto on the four bathrooms... You should also consider getting another main water line into the house. Don't forget the additional hot water heaters, otherwise you will never have hot water for yourself.

Congratulations! You might have to move the Boxster out of the garage and put your bed in there to get some sleep though.

Congratulations! My kids are 12 and 6½, and I just get a babysitter (typically grandpa) when we're taking the Boxster for a spin. Or they take turns riding it.
Another solution might be something like this:

I know it's a 964, but you get the idea...

If you get a 911, get a cab, its a PITA to get anything in the back seat

I still have all the freedom I need, we travel a lot in the boxster, grandparents watch the kids.

When working on the car their small hands come in handy they make good little mechanics

Congratulations Martin!

BTW, the 986 makes for some great "alone time" drives. No need to get rid of it. One of my favorite things to do is take her out for a top-down spin at about midnight when everyone else is sleeping.

I don't do night drives too hard to spot the bacon

It's funny our oldest came home from school the other day. A group of boys were pointing at a mustang saying wow look at that, it must be a Porsche. My daughter corrected them and told them and I quote " that is no Porsche that is a peice of crap mustang " she told them that I drive a Porsche and they did not believe her ..... Until I dropped her off the next morning haha

Congratulations!! My wife and I had a girl on 7/21/15. What a blessing!! I record shows on Velocity to keep myself awake for the middle of the night feedings.... Just a friendly tip :-) As far as the Boxster goes, my wife has a CR-V that we travel in as a family (we also have a 9 year old boy). There is no better way to balance work/life than a 30 minute drive home from the office in the Boxster. I walk in the door completely de-stressed from work and energized to be a husband and a dad. For some people cars are just a little more than transportation... Okay a lot more. Congrats again to you and your wife and enjoy every moment!
