    Reliable And Fun To Drive — Very much fun to drive, Plenty of power and very predictable when applied. A bit thirsty on fuel but I do have 260 hp. Gets a lot of looks and is only one of four like it ever built by Porsche. So it is increasing in value all the time.

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

    Pros: FUN, FUN

    Cons: Cost on fule

    A+++ — This car has super high build quality. it lives up to the 911 standard, and even exceeds it. The car has great performance for its age and its fun to drive! the DME relay tends to go bad every 5-7 years. The car will act like it has a dead battery but its a simple $30-40 part and simple to fix. the relay is right under the seat, not a big deal.

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

    Pros: Fun to drive and who doesnt like a 911?!?

    Cons: the DME relay

    Fast, Super Grippy And A Classic Air-cooled Noise — Above 100 it just flew to the redline and sounded superb. Shame that the gearbox was knackered and the clutch was giving it's final swansong. I'd love another, it's a classic.

    Pros: A beautiful classic, if you buy the right one it won't cost too much either

    Cons: Buy the wrong one and it'll cost you

    Awesome — I think the Porsche 911 is one of the top 10 sports cars ever built. You can drive them like a regular car. While they are not an exotic, they are built to last and be driven. You can drive them to work reliably or take them to the race track. A true dual purpose car.

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

    Pros: great car to own, very fun,  quick, good gas mileage and they hold their value

    Cons: can be expensive to maintain if you don't buy one that has been cared for.
