    Incredible Timeless 911 — I love everything about this car. It's the Porsche that comes to mind when thinking about Porsche cars. Bullet-proof air-cooled engine, great handling (once you learn to throttle steer into the turns) and great stopping power with massive disc brakes. Lightweight at only 2700 pounds, this car is like driving a steroid powered go-kart.

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

    Pros: Great car to drive.  Runs as good as it looks.  Fast, great brakes, great handling.  It's the model that made Porsche.

    Cons: Small back seats.  Limited cargo room.

    Porky Love — So much fun to drive, solid handling. Felt like it was built by Zeus. Lived up too my expectations and more. Beautiful sound. Could happily live with a Porky Targa, I want to retire with one of these in my garage parked up next to my Bugs. God Bless Ferdinand Porsche.

    Pros: Beautiful and Tough

    Cons: Expensive parts

    Great Little Car — I bought this car as a light eproject well, $7k later it has finally met my expectation, partly. There is more I can and will do to it. There is really nothing I dislike other than It has a salvage certificate in the carfax and the AC, its terrible to say the least. I love this car.

    Pros: GUYS LOVE IT

    Cons: GIRLS DON'T KNOW WHAT IT IS

    Rear-engine Rear Wheel Drive; Engine: Flat-6; Power: 231 Hp; Torque: 210 Lb Ft; 0-60 Mph: 5.4 Sec. — This car has extreamly good handling for it's time. The ability for a rear-wheel drive car to turn this efficiently at high speeds is still unsurpassed by most car manufacturers more than twenty years later. Even in the 60s and 70s this particular brand was on the cutting edge of aerodinamics and still is today and with a top speed of 100 mph you will need them. These cars have also been known tobe very durable; in fact, I would use this car as a work car because, I have seen them with over threehundred thousand miles on them.

    A Taste Of "every Porsche Built Is A Race Car". — First true Porsche that I owned. Performance was outstanding with good power, excellent brakes and unmatched handling. German engineering built a functional car that was fun to drive in town, in competition or, on long trips. Yes, it is stiffer than most cars but, that is part of the performance and handling. Swapping out the stock seat for an OMP race seat made you one with the car. The slate blue color and style of this car was very appealing and never got old. Cost to own was reasonable as long as you are willing to keep it maintained. With 25 mpg freeway and almost 20 in town, the fun was without penalty.

    Pros: Top notch quality on an attractive, fun to drive and great performing automobile.

    Cons: Wish I could have had another 100 hp.

    When You Choose To Work Too Hard But Deserve A Vacation Too... On Wheels! — I recently retired but this car has kept me young. My wife hates the hair blowing in the wind, and I live for it, so we now drive most everywhere in her car :-( . This car deserves more and loves to perform!

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

    Pros: The looks are classic and inspiring! It brings out the racer in anyone who is around it!

    Cons: Parking it...
