It Was My First....but Not My Last Porsche. — I'm not sure that I'd do it all over again, they are fun cars, but dealing with the arrogance of the local dealerships made my ownership experience less than fun. It was a Bucket List car, but I moved on to better and more reliable 911's that changed my attitude toward the model. The Dealership experience...well that never did get better.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Was a real head turner.   I always got front row parking.

Cons: boy did it like to break.....and everything was a bazillion dollars.

Solid And Fun. — I bought this car on a whim. I was looking for a 2005-2007 911 and saw this and bought it the same day. It was close by and has the color combinations I like as well as specs. It has a 1988 3.2 engine and was repainted the original color. It has some work that needs to be done, but checked out very well with a local Porsche shop. Most of the items are wants and not needs.

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

Pros: Blast to drive!  Love the looks.  Can use it on a regular basis.

Cons: Cost of maintenance.
