Pros

A beautiful classic, if you buy the right one it won't cost too much either

Cons

Buy the wrong one and it'll cost you

Fast, Super Grippy And A Classic Air-cooled Noise — Above 100 it just flew to the redline and sounded superb. Shame that the gearbox was knackered and the clutch was giving it's final swansong. I'd love another, it's a classic.

Reliable And Fun To Drive — Very much fun to drive, Plenty of power and very predictable when applied. A bit thirsty on fuel but I do have 260 hp. Gets a lot of looks and is only one of four like it ever built by Porsche. So it is increasing in value all the time.

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

Pros

Fun to drive and who doesnt like a 911?!?

Cons

the DME relay

A+++ — This car has super high build quality. it lives up to the 911 standard, and even exceeds it. The car has great performance for its age and its fun to drive! the DME relay tends to go bad every 5-7 years. The car will act like it has a dead battery but its a simple $30-40 part and simple to fix. the relay is right under the seat, not a big deal.

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

Awesome — I think the Porsche 911 is one of the top 10 sports cars ever built. You can drive them like a regular car. While they are not an exotic, they are built to last and be driven. You can drive them to work reliably or take them to the race track. A true dual purpose car.
