911 EXPERIENCE

by JETMORE from SOLOMONS, MD | June 20, 2012

I BOUGHT MINE AFTER A LOT OF RESEARCH. WITHOUT A DOUBT, THE MOST FUN CAR EVER TO DRIVE. NOT NECESSARILY THE "FASTEST" BUT MOST FUN, BY FAR. STAY WITH THE OLDER AIRCOOLED CARS. THEY ARE EASIER TO WORK ON, PARTS ARE CHEAPER, AND THEY SOUND COOLER. THE MOTORS WILL TAKE A BEATING IF YOU GO WITH 1978 AND NEWER AIR COOLED MOTOR.

no substitute

by amp1990 from DE | December 18, 2010

fast - exceptional handling - aggressive looks - easy to maintain. Very affordable "super car" and just a matter of being patient - look around but let me warn that once you drive a porsche....you'll be hooked.

Good, solid sports car

by Moneyburner from Alaska | December 7, 2008

I have a 1990 Carrera 4 coupe that I will drive until they take away my license. They require superior mechanical skills to maintain, and parts are expensive unless you have relatives in Germany. No, they're still expensive. Who cares? I drove mine from Alabama to Alaska in temperatures from 90 to minus 55, no worries. The 964's require a specific diagnostic tester that you or your mechanic MUST have to properly care for this car. (they cost around $3000 if you can find someone dumb enough to sell it to you - definitely not a do-it-yourself car, unless you have formal training) If you're considering one, make sure someone local has one, or you're going to have a hard time taking care of it. They are neither common nor cheap. (this was before OBD-II). It is called a Bosch Hammer (due to it's shape). The age of the car also suggests that the airbags are due for replacement; this is also expensive. Get a dealer or a very experienced mechanic to do a pre-buy inspection. The right-hand cams seem to have a problem getting oil when they've sat too long, and replacing them costs thousands. They need to be run often to prevent this. The battery will die if you neglect the car for a few days. I think this is intentional on the part of the car because it gets bored sitting around not being driven. Carefully search for the one you like, get a comprehensive inspection done, then drive it 300,000 miles. You'll want nothing else. Ever. Get the book called "The Porsche Companion" and read it before buying. Cheers; Mike

My car for the past 18 years!

by Skip from Wilton, CTY | February 15, 2008

180,000 miles and going strong. I use her all year long and never baby her. I would never give her up unless to replace with one with fewer miles.
