The Everyday Sports Car

Porsche does an amazing job at bringing the everyday car and the high end exotic sports car together. The power, handling and braking is unparalleled in it's class. Once you drive one, you'll never turn back. Make sure you purchase colors like Black, silver, gray and red... other colors tend to be harder to resell. Steer clear of automatics/tiptronics. Who wouldn't want the 6spd manual!

I have spent several years looking for the combination of 911, Carrera 4, cabrolet, manual shift and low mileage (<30,000). Finaly found the vehicle. I have owned a couple of Porsches in the past, but was always impressed with the "964" vehicles produced by Porsches. Great power, great fit and finish...a true sportscar. This vehicle is extremly (show room clean). The only issue was the tires..alittle worn with flat spots. She runs great with new skins. My only concern was the potential IMS issues. I gave the owner a new oil change so that I could analyze the oil for potential debris. There was no problem, but I do plan on having the IMS bearing changed soon.

Totally reliable AND fun

Best of all Porsches I've owned. Best of all other sport cars, including BMWs, Lotus, etc. The new body and engine are incredible, more spacious, easier to drive, more fun and faster. It still looks very current today, and this model looks the same for 4 model years after this one. Reliability has been great for me, with lots of miles. I get lots of attention nearly every time I'm out in it. The value is quite good, when you consider what you are driving and how it holds its value. If you like sports cars and haven't driven one, do. You will never look back. Enjoy.

i just bought my 1999 porsche 911 996. i love it. the acceleration is amazing. if i have any complaints is that it isnt the most comfortable ride and you can hear and feel the motor loudly, but i personally like the sound and feel. the stereo is also very cheap. but i purchas the vehcle for performance and the name. it is a very good looking car. best performance car for your buck, for sure. it can handle a corner better than most cars and it is fast. im glad i traded my infiniti g35 for this 911.

The only thing I wish was the new headlight styling which is why I gave a 4 star. These cars are best driven on either narrow windy roads or highways. Sheer pleasure when I join highways at an intersection as I can get the pleasure of both. You gotta drive a Porsche if you like to drive. I have owned two Porsches. A 1984 944 and now a 1999 911. I'd rather drive an old Porsche than any new car for that price anyway!

Having had the opportunity to thoroughly educate myself on the tiptronic v 6 speed with test drives of both vehicles and then with the real possibility that I have to choose the 6 speed just because I did not want to give up on my aging "racer" status just yet. I was surprised, very surprised that the tiptronic can do as well if not better than even the most swift footed testoroned male out in the real world and that being your average main street stop light. This 911 took of like a rocket and the poor Mustang owner who had the misfortune to pick a soon-to-be Porsche owner experiencing his first rip off the line, became a sad faced Ford person. But worse was to come for him, as, realizing that another stop light loomed, decided to bow out the contest by moving into my lane thus avoiding another embarrassing match up at the light. This car is blisteringly fast and will not disappoint. Best $28K that I have spent in quite some time.

My first was a 356b. Tried to rebuild it right but money was a problem when I was young. Have been fortunate enough to have life catch up with my taste in cars. They are all really great, even ahd an auto(never again). I czan't work on them anymore and as I age money is becominmg a problem, but I have the memories and the photos. that said never buy a 928 NEVER, NEVER. The old one's are kinda like beetles, sort of,.

1999 996s are great value - balance tech & simple
