Porsche Carrera — Its a fun car to own. Insured as a collector vehicle, which means the insurance is reasonably priced, but it is not going to be a daily driver. This car is slowly morphing into a pretty good investment (Rule 1: Never buy a sports car as an investment. Rule 2: Sometimes you might be surprised, but that is just luck) Smooth transmission. Stick with the OEM clutch. The heavy duty clutch makes your leg ache. OEM brakes are preeety darn good. Gets surprisingly good gas mileage (34-36 mpg) for a 3.2 liter 6 cyl. Whiles driving it is best to hum "Casey Jones, better watch your speed..."

Pros: Hey. It's a Porsche... a Go-Kart with a big powerful engine. Street legal and fun to drive.

Cons: Not the most practical car in the world

Classic True Air Cooled Porsche Master Engineering — Fast, fast, fast! Torque is major and balance is superb as expected in a true Porsche. Corners at over twice posted curve speed with no strain and brakes fast and sure. There is no other car after driving your first true 911.

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

Pros: Beautiful package, well maintained and groomed.  A thrill to drive and a thrill to be seen driving

Cons: no cd player, poor air conditioning

1987 Porsche — It's a 1987 911 carrera with a 1991 911 turbo engine redone by randolph racing. This car is a good way to commit suicide. Its an absolute scream machine and is a total blast to drive. I wouldnt sell it for the world.

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

Pros: A ton of fun

Cons: Cramped cabin

Most Fun Car To Drive On Track — Raced this car for several years at Elkhart Lake WI, it handles excellent on the track. Wish I could get back out but the car is sitting in garage right now.

Pros: tight suspension for perfect racing

Cons: not street legal

87 Carrera 32 — So much to like trumps any dislikes. Car is a solid 9. Owned for 20 years because of engineering, performance, style, handling, extreme reliability and thumbs up from spectators and collectors. Pricing for Carrera's of this vintage and condition are beginning to increase substantially. Since my ownership and not including routine maintenance I have replaced a power seat switch, license plate light, heater temp control knob, upgraded headlamps, installed oversize sway bars, added a shock tower strut/brace, performance chip, sport muffler & turbo tie rod ends. At 107k miles I am about to finally replace the original clutch. What's not to like? All that said, my car in not presently for sale. Cargurus required completion of this summary in order to save a search as I am looking for a 2nd Porsche, a 996 Turbo.

Pros: Stunning

Cons: "0" cons

Wooohoooo!!!! — Like porsche says "their is no substitute". To clarify it may look almost exactly like a 911 turbo but comparing the two is like apples & oranges, its far beyond a nine eleven, thats why it was discontinued in 89, rub the ninethirty the wrong way andyou would pay dearly, no second chances, it was simply too raw for the majority of the public. Being the lunatic that i am,i upped my rear wheel hp to 500+! In a word, "UNREAL". To make it brief, your on a whole other level whenyour front tires lift off the ground!

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

Pros: Hot like fire!

Cons: $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$
