This is a Longhorned Borer Beetle in the family Cerambycidae, and it looks like the same species Daniel frequently sees at the porch light, but he has not yet identified the species. Now that your request has arrived, Daniel will spend more time researching its identity. Based on this BugGuide image, it might be Paranoplium gracile. The images of the species on Cerambycidae Catalog appear very different, and look much smaller than the species Daniel has seen. The species Daniel has seen looks more like Haplidus testaceus which is also pictured on BugGuide. It is also pictured on Cerambycidae Catalog.
