Pros

The 5 speed manual is a great plus, it reminds me of driving the Autostrada of Italy while I run through the gears

Cons

The backend has been known to break loose from time to time while shifting through the gears

My Idea Of The Porsche — The 1990 911 964 is my idea of what the Porsche was meant to be. My first matchbox car was the bug eye Porsche. I've always wanted one and in 1995 I purchased this one. I am having the engine rebuilt and an after market AC added to this car so that I can endure the Texas summers. Aside from a few mods, like the AC, the car is completely stock

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

Fun Car To Drive — Fun to drive. Great power. Very quick and fast. Shifts very smooth. Brakes are excellent with new pads. Top works perfectly as it was recently adjusted by a local Porsche mechanic in San Antonio. A/C blows cold air. Heater works great.

The 911 To Buy Today — A 911 is always something special, but IMO a 964 today it really a good bet. You can still find good second hand offers with low km. Quality is great and performance definitely better than the 250 hp suggest if associated to today's standards. Still air cooled, and closer to the original shape than later models are. It can be fast (250 km/h on German Autobahn) but also pretty light on the purse as it doesn't drink much more than my A4 2.8, despite the big 3.6 liters boxer engine. Very comfortable on long trips, great sound and a future classic.

Wow — Amazing. I never thought my dad would actually buy it. Unfortunately, it's a stick and I've yet to learn how to drive standard, but I am learning.

Loved It — The only reason I didn't buy it was that I didn't feel comfortable driving to client meetings in it. How many client meetings have I driven to since? 0!

Pros

I love everything about the car. Performance is outstanding. Handling is as good as it gets. The braking is unbelievable. The shape of the car is absolutely beautiful. I've had the car for three years and have had to do nothing except change the oil. I'm getting about 24 MPG. Best of all, my grandkids love the Porsche and the rear jump seats are perfect for them.

Cons

I've been trying to think of some cons, but can't come up with any. Sorry.

World Class Sports Car — I've had 3 Porsche 911s. The 964 version is the most fun so far. It is a world class sports car that is very affordable at this time. They are certainly on the rise now in value. NADA "excellent" retail in now up to $34,200.00. The car is rock solid and always gets the thumbs up from other folks. I've only had to change the oil so far. I've had her 3 years now with no problems. These are the last hand made air-cooled Porsches. Mine only has 3000 original miles on it. If you don't want attention then do not buy this car.
