Incredible Timeless 911 — Great car. Runs like a champ all the way to 7,000 rpm. M491 Turbo body option. Mostly all original. Turn heads wherever I go. Some people think it's a $125,000 turbo because it looks so good. This air-cooled engine will run forever!

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

Pros: Great looks with timeless styling.  Great handling.  Air cooled motor runs great.

Cons: Only average about 13 mpg....but who cares!  Not much room for cargo.

Porsche - There Is No Substitute! — * Performance – Good Torque, brake are great, Handling - well it a Porsche. take a firm educated hand to drive properly. * Build Quality – Strong well built car * Appearance – Interior is lacking in the comforts but it is a sports car. Exterior is a matter of taste - I love it * Cost of Ownership – gas mileageis 16-17 city 26 hwy. Parts are $$$ * Fun Factor – This is a great car to drive

Pros: Light, torquey engine. Durable, a classic

Cons: Can be expensive to maintain, but keep up your oil changes and it will run for a long time.

1981 Porsche 911sc Best Handling Car Ever! — The kind of handling expected from a Porsche 911 SC. Power to Weight ratio made it a little sluggish, but still a quick car through the turns. Maintenance was expensive if done at the dealership or even independents. No question learn to repair, modify and rebuild every part of the car to save money. Stock engine management makes the car a bit of a fuel hog, but when upgraded to the 1984's EMS fuel and acceleration both improve. If you have the money to afford a beauty like this, go for it. It is a car for the discerning driver, not a drag racer.

Pros: Brand, Handling, and Looks

Cons: Fuel mileage(stock), Sluggish straight line speed, and a large tendency for oversteer

My Favorite Car — I really miss this car. It was classic Guards Red. One of the best handling cars I have owned (especially after a few choice suspension mods). It was a car I had always wanted. She was at home in the twisties, and on the track. The only car I've ever had that I took out "just to drive).

Pros: a Porsche

Cons: High maintenance costs

The Older Your Porsche, The More Soul. — This is my 4th Porsche and second 911SC. I love the way it sounds, responds, drives and is an art piece on wheels. It's a race car, what can I say. I'm a big fan of flat 6 engines too.

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

Pros: There is no substitute!

Cons: A/C

It wasn’t too appealing knowing it’s a coupe with not much power to accelerate. I’d rather go for a GT3 though it costs more but it’s worth the money. Read More
