My Pretty Penny — The 911 is beyond anything I could even imagine. When looking at the price tag, it is hard to justify all that money for something that is driven. Until you have driven or even ridden in a Porsche (a good one) you cannot fathom all the detail, thought, and fine tuning that goes into the car!

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

Pros: Everything!  The sound of the engine, the smell of the car, the feel of the wheel and the seat, and the sights all around you... it is very much a sensory car.

Cons: It is a little pricey to repair and maintain... but it will run forever!

Owned It 29 Years — I would change nothing on this car except upgrade radio. Car is fun to drive but must have a strong heart. Must be respective of the power and turbo lag. These cars seem to be appreciating over the last few years.

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

Pros: Classic 930 turbo look with added power and handling

Cons: need to put a/c back on car

Loved It But Could B Hard To Handle Somtimes — loved the car!! cool looking nice speed, braking a little bad on hills, nice blue color on the outside hot black leather on the inside. fun to drive on the high ways or open roads. needed oil change depending on how far you took it.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: cool looking, can take off roof

Cons: kinda old

Best Ever! — I've owned several Porsches and, in my opinion, the '79 to '83 911 SC is the quintessential Porsche. It's powerful enough to push to the limit, but still light enough to toss around a twisty canyon with excellent driver feedback. I searched about three years for this one. It's a relatively rare Chiffon white with even more rare Black sport (Turbo) leather interior. Mostly stock, except for the tensioner/pop-off valve upgrade and a factory short shift added as well as springs that put it about 100mm lower than Euro, but 150mm higher than a typical track setup. This is THE car to have in Colorado

Pros: Style, performance, handling, reliability

Cons: none

Awesome — 83' Porsche 911 Targa. Built for racing. I can get up to 50mph in first gear at only 5000RPM's. It handles like a dream. Great brakes as well. Built to dominate Ferrari's on track courses. Will take on any stock production car from the early 80's. Built more for track racing and tight corners than drag racing. Needs a few paint touchups but makes up for it in performance. Tough to keep up on maintenance simply because it's an older vehicle.

Pros: great handling.

Cons: not specifically meant for drag racing but can hold it's own

Review By Guru95XGGR

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
