Fabulous Looks And Sound For A 21 Year Old Car — Love everything about the car and never tire of driving it just to hear the noise it makes! Has a few small rust spots which will hopefully addressed over the winter. Classic car insurance and low agreed mileage means cheap insurance and using an independant specialist for servicing means that running costs are comparatively low.

My 1st Porsche — I loved doing 4wheel Drifts across a bridge once, that was Amazing. The brakes were just so dam good, you just wanted every cars brakes to stop like that. It would be a lot saferthe car looked the part it was so solid. Everytime I went out in it. It was an adventure.

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

Pros

Well made, quick, classic car

Cons

Some handling problems on the limit with inexperienced drivers

1989 Porsche 911 3.2 Carrera — A little dated now, should be treated as a quick classic car rather than a modern supercar. I used mine as a daily runner in London for several years, never had a single problem. The most expensive service was little more than the cost of a Ford to service. Great car!

Pros

Base model and engine but goes like 'snot'.  92,000 miles and not one rattle, squeak, or burnt out light bulb.  Try that with one of our domestics

Cons

The entire price structure is 'the nuts'.  The replacement parts from Porsche or a quality brand cost an arm and a heart valve.  Even the cars where a 911 can start at $100,000 and add a few (too many options) and you've got her up to $204,000 M.S.R.P.!

'little Red" — Build quality - excellent. Materials quality - excellent, fit and finish - excellent. Price is out of line to a average guy like me and I question if I am on a ego trip. But when I drive her from normal to moderate the ego evaporates and the thrill and appreciation is all there
