Best Ever! — I've owned several Porsches and, in my opinion, the '79 to '83 911 SC is the quintessential Porsche. It's powerful enough to push to the limit, but still light enough to toss around a twisty canyon with excellent driver feedback. I searched about three years for this one. It's a relatively rare Chiffon white with even more rare Black sport (Turbo) leather interior. Mostly stock, except for the tensioner/pop-off valve upgrade and a factory short shift added as well as springs that put it about 100mm lower than Euro, but 150mm higher than a typical track setup. This is THE car to have in Colorado

Awesome — 83' Porsche 911 Targa. Built for racing. I can get up to 50mph in first gear at only 5000RPM's. It handles like a dream. Great brakes as well. Built to dominate Ferrari's on track courses. Will take on any stock production car from the early 80's. Built more for track racing and tight corners than drag racing. Needs a few paint touchups but makes up for it in performance. Tough to keep up on maintenance simply because it's an older vehicle.

Pros

Everything!  The sound of the engine, the smell of the car, the feel of the wheel and the seat, and the sights all around you... it is very much a sensory car.

Cons

It is a little pricey to repair and maintain... but it will run forever!

My Pretty Penny — The 911 is beyond anything I could even imagine. When looking at the price tag, it is hard to justify all that money for something that is driven. Until you have driven or even ridden in a Porsche (a good one) you cannot fathom all the detail, thought, and fine tuning that goes into the car!

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)
