It's A Sports Car You Can Drive Every Day

I've owned my 968 for eight years and have driven it daily with no regrets. Make no mistake about it, it's a sports car that gives highest priority to performance so it's not especially quiet, cushy riding or full of cup holders. And I wouldn't have it any other way. This car will reward the avid driver with outstanding handling (>.9 g), acceleration (0-60 in 5.9 seconds), speed (156 mph) and efficiency (27 mpg freeway). When the car was new, price was the biggest disadvantage. As a used car, it's a bargain. Despite what other reviewers have said, I find the interior quite roomy (I'm 6"2') and with the rear seats folded down, I have 18 cubic feet of storage space. The car has a split personality. You can tool around in it at low revs and it really doesn't feel that powerful. Rev the engine a little so the variocam kicks it and you'll hear a slight howl sound as the car smoothly quickens its pace. It's a hoot and no turbos are used. It's been cheaper to maintain than my Ford van so I plan on keeping it until I wear it out. If you drive an SUV and think it drives like a sports car, do yourself a favor and drive a real sports car once in your life. It will change your perspective and put a smile on your face.

I have a 95 Red Convertible with tan interior. It is a summer toy. Extremely reliable and VERY fun to drive. It is 6 speed and I actually prefer driving it over my 08, 911 tiptronic. All parts are available because of interchangeability with 944 parts. Replacing original top soon. These cars are very affordable.
