A 25 Year Old Porsche — By today's standards it's not really that fast, but the way it feels when doing it is like nothing made today. The best bit is that the harder you drive it - the better it gets. Mine's basic, with no extras - so no power steering or aircon or electric seats and windows. Not even a rear wiper, so basically there's nothing that can go wrong...

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

Pros: Brakes - power and feel ; Steering - feel and sensitivity

Cons: Driving position

Options Options — This car does not have a standard gearbox, and you have to rev it up a bit at the start if you want to go anywhere. Once moving, she can eat up mountain roads like Oreo cookies. Has stiffer springs, front and rear roll bars, limited slip transmission, and stiffer dampers. The looks are gorgeous without being too flashy. Has had some maintenance troubles, but overall a good car.

Pros: Great steerin feel, looks nice, roomy inside for two and lots of luggage.

Cons: Timingbelt/waterpump maintenance will bite someone that thinks its just a cheap car. Most modern four door sedans can beat if off the line.

1984 Porsche 944 — what it lacked in 0-60 acceleration, porsche made up for it two fold in its superb handling. between being the easiest german car i've ever worked on, and very very stunning, aggressive styling, make this a car guys friend. drop the clutch and this 2.5 inline 4 will smoke the tires. i was also able to locate an after market stroker kit, which i believe would make it comparable to the 3 liter 4 cylinder that porsche put into the 1990 model.

Pros: stylish, quick, aggressive, fun.

Cons: approx. 7.9-8.3 0-60

Porsche 944 Modified Look.. — My car is a slightly modified version of the stock model, its got the turbo front bumper and a rear spoiler from the 968.. The build quility of the modifications could be better, but overall its ok.. The engine is still the stock 2,5 163 Bhp engine and it runs perfectly..

Pros: The attention it gets because of the special colour..

Cons: I've crashed it 2 times, so the rims are ruined..

It Has Great Performance And Brakes.real Nice Car For Twisty Open Roads — The only problem i have is the quick loss of traction in turns at low speed.And its a maintance cost is realy high.Its a fun car to drive on the open roads not in town because the lack of power steering and its ride hight.If u are not a Porsche fan it is wise not to buy one

Pros: It has realy good road holding if u drive it right if not u wil experience a lot of traction los

Cons: The lack of power steering

Incredible — not the fastest car in the world, but ill never find one that handles better

Pros: unbelievable handling, perfect 50-50 weight balance, very very well built.

Cons: a bit underpowered for my taste, but can hold its own against a mustang gt.

Best Bang For You Buck By Far — This car can be picked up for around 4-6 grand and is a blast. It handles great and even though it is old, it has a high quality engine in it and will last.

Pros: Attractive body, easy to drive, quality.

Cons: Expensive timing belt. Not an amazing amount of HP

Amazing — I own the non turbo version so the acceleration is not what it could be. The car is the best handling automobile that I 've had the pleasure of laying my hands on. The trans is in the back to make for an almost perfect 50-50 weight distribution. One problem, which I knew before I bought the car, is all the little things that go wrong with it. Just make sure to keep it well kept or your going to blow a waterpump/timing belt and have to rebuild your engine.

Pros: The looks I get on the street
Handling

Cons: Little stuff breaking down
