We use a 2001 911 C2 as a daily driver and drive 50-100 miles a day.

I am in the Boston area and my 2004 C4S is a daily driver. Equipped with proper wheels and tires it is great.

Buying used..........get an 02 or later if you can, otherwise whatever.

Hitting the slopes......if you've gotten 8"s the nite before & no plowing early, clearance can be some issue.

Otherwise.......get the Porsche roof rack option.....some winter wheels/tires......and throw the kids in.......great fun.

I've driven all-wheel Pcars in WI winters as 'dailys' for 10-15 yrs......thoroughly enjoy it.

I generally tell people that (for me anyway) driving on the ice & snow is loads of fun cause it's like winter practice for summer autocrossing.

I Have a C4 and eventhough I don't use it as a daily driver, I do take my car skiing. The most important thing are the snow tires.

As far as the kids are concerned, well I hope they are small because from what I remember there is not a lot of room in the back. Especially if you decided to go for a 1 hr+ drive to the slopes.

the car i'm looking at is a 2001 C4 w/ 16k. Has the right options, I know the owner and the car is in fantastic shape. I can buy for 45k. I am familiar w/ RMS issues. I have 3 kids(and a suburban) will be selling my other 2 cars (84 3.2 Carrera and 01 540) if I buy this. My wife wants me to have just one car, and have considered Audi S4, New beemers, or Cayenne. Strangely enough my wife wants me to buy a Cayenne. If it were up to me and me alone, I'd get a beater jeep and a boxster S.
