Pros

This car can do 190 mph plus.  I can attest to that.  Stops very fast.  Handling is like no other.  Sticks like glue.  Turbo kick is awe-inspiring.  Race it on the weekend and drive it to work on Monday  .AT 24 years of age it still turns heads like a new model.  Not too many on the road.  

Cons

You can get up to 17 MPG but the best I can do, with my lead foot, is about 12 MPG.

Dream Car — For what this car was designed for there is absolutely nothing to dislike. It's built for speed and durability. It has both in abundance. Very fun car to drive and very safe. Also, low profile. Hard for cops to spot on the road. I had no tickets the first five years I owned it and believe me, there were plenty of opportunities. Maintenance was predictable. Hard driving, like autocross, is hard on the discs but other than that the car had no serious problems until I had to rebuild the Turbo at 97,000 miles.

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

Pros

A great 3 season car.  Being in the NE you either protect it from the elements and keep it pristine or use it seasonly.

Cons

This 964 was too nice to take to public parking lots without some forethought and was never driven in the rain.  It was a unoffical "show car" so it really saw limited use.  That made it a less useful vehicle Vs a daily driver.

Great For Summer Drives And Pca Social Events — Not much to dislike, the car was easy to maintain. Drives great and was a blast on twisty roads.. Some wind issues if your planning a long drive at freeway speeds. Tthe 964 is under valued If you look at the build quality (one of the last 160 hour hand assembled air cooled Porsches),

Pros

Fun to drive.  It wraps around you when driving.  Handles wonderfully and enjoys curves and mountain climbs.  Has been a wonderful car.

Cons

Not very roomy taking children to school.  I have used as a weekend driver.

Ti Has Become A Family Member. My Kids Love The Car But Not Very Practical For A Family. — I enjoyed the power and the handling of the car. It is nice to get out and take a drive and open the sunroof and just let the day melt away. I have ejoyed the tiptronic better than i thought for traffic and redlights. It is much easier than the maunual.

A Practicle Daily Sports Car — Very cheap to run, very reliable with enough performance for a daily runner. Interior is a bit dated but oodles of character. Use it as a 2 seater & you'll have enough luggage space. Put your friends in the backseat and they won't your friends for long...

Outstanding — Loved everything about the car. It was in museum condition so I couldn't use it for daily use. The performance was adequate but because it had a tiptronic transmission, I didn't enjoy driving it hard. Definitely a fun car and would highly recommend it.
