87 Carrera 32 — So much to like trumps any dislikes. Car is a solid 9. Owned for 20 years because of engineering, performance, style, handling, extreme reliability and thumbs up from spectators and collectors. Pricing for Carrera's of this vintage and condition are beginning to increase substantially. Since my ownership and not including routine maintenance I have replaced a power seat switch, license plate light, heater temp control knob, upgraded headlamps, installed oversize sway bars, added a shock tower strut/brace, performance chip, sport muffler & turbo tie rod ends. At 107k miles I am about to finally replace the original clutch. What's not to like? All that said, my car in not presently for sale. Cargurus required completion of this summary in order to save a search as I am looking for a 2nd Porsche, a 996 Turbo.

Classic True Air Cooled Porsche Master Engineering — Fast, fast, fast! Torque is major and balance is superb as expected in a true Porsche. Corners at over twice posted curve speed with no strain and brakes fast and sure. There is no other car after driving your first true 911.

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

1987 Porsche — It's a 1987 911 carrera with a 1991 911 turbo engine redone by randolph racing. This car is a good way to commit suicide. Its an absolute scream machine and is a total blast to drive. I wouldnt sell it for the world.

Most Fun Car To Drive On Track — Raced this car for several years at Elkhart Lake WI, it handles excellent on the track. Wish I could get back out but the car is sitting in garage right now.
