Pros

The looks I get on the street
Handling

Cons

Little stuff breaking down

Amazing — I own the non turbo version so the acceleration is not what it could be. The car is the best handling automobile that I 've had the pleasure of laying my hands on. The trans is in the back to make for an almost perfect 50-50 weight distribution. One problem, which I knew before I bought the car, is all the little things that go wrong with it. Just make sure to keep it well kept or your going to blow a waterpump/timing belt and have to rebuild your engine.

Cons

handaling in slick weather

Gr8 For Sunny Times — It is a fun older car. Good build but wiering could be bad so check. Parts are very expencive, why my car is no longer mine. and real cheap to buy if there is an easy problem to fix. Drive only in the summer.

unbelievable handling, perfect 50-50 weight balance, very very well built.

a bit underpowered for my taste, but can hold its own against a mustang gt.

Amazing Handling Machine For Under 10k Used — great used car. predictable handling. Very controlled body motion. great value for dollar ratio. recommended to pick up a latter model for much better interior. a tad bit short on power. Almost bullet proof car mechanically, but electrical components are rather iffy. Car has great street presence for its age. You get second looks on the street for the price of a Honda civic.

Decent — nice car, extremely hard to work on, but i'm 6'4 and fit in it fine. however although it is a 4 seater, its more like 2 and 2 for luggage. lol parts are also hard to get for it. interior is mint though for being 26 years old.

Everything You´d Love With Racing Is This Car! — I like especially the suspension and balance of my Porsche. She´s just perfect to take out for a drive and attack corners. Next summer I hope I´ll have time to take her to Nürburgring and it´s nordschleife for a spinn...

Pros

The joy of driving her

Cons

Cost of parts

My 944 — She is brilliant to drive smooth, fast and really like to be pushed. There are some big faults like the driving position and steering wheel position. However when things do go wrong you need lots of money to fix her.

Pros

Brakes - power and feel ; Steering - feel and sensitivity

Cons

Driving position

A 25 Year Old Porsche — By today's standards it's not really that fast, but the way it feels when doing it is like nothing made today. The best bit is that the harder you drive it - the better it gets. Mine's basic, with no extras - so no power steering or aircon or electric seats and windows. Not even a rear wiper, so basically there's nothing that can go wrong...

I Have Enjoyed This Car For The Last 13 Years — I have had few mechanical problems with this car over a 13 year period. Garaged and not driven in winter. Changed timing belt and water pump about 10,000 miles ago. Has 128,000 miles on it now. I had it painted in 2002, but it has a cracked interior console. No body rust.

Decent — i really like these cars because they are fairly inexpensive and really enjoyable to drive I don't like the bumper rubbers. and the sunroof which is a terrible design. but over all i am satisfied with tis type of car, however a turbo model wouldn"t be out of the question...
