    General Sports Car — OK car. Surprisingly not very good acceleration. Lots of maintenance. Target top took a long time to put on or take off. One of the last air cooled models. Not very unique. Nice leather seats I remember. Sold it for $1k more than I bought it for!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Good general sports car

    Cons: Trunk space

    Classic Porsche 911 Convertible With Timeless Styling — I've had this car for 12+ years and still as enjoyable as it was the first day. It may not have the power and performance of newer cars, yet it still has the nice looks of a classic Porsche Cabriolet.

    Pros: Great looking and handling car; being one of the last years, it is very reliable too

    Cons: This is not a family car, wife and kids should preferably stay at home

    911 Cabs Are Great — Bored the cylinders from 96mm to 100mm, took out most excess weight, Cabriolet, Black on Black on Black with the original Chrome Fuchs wheels. Roll Bar. Fun factor is high, practical factor is low. Sitting in the garage for too long

    Pros: lean, light and fast

    Cons: 3 KIDS

    Porsche 911 Targa — Just living the dream folks, just living the dream. I bought this car because of my mid-twenties crisis that I am currently going through. I have always wanted this type of Porsche if particular and I love the G50 transmission that it has in it. This is Porsche's most desirable era for the 911.

    Pros: Everything about this car is awesome.

    Cons: Needs a better sound system.

    1988 Porsche 911 Cabriolet, Triple Granite Green With Factory Bbs Rims — Although I had to sell it when I left California, I'd recommend a 911 to anyone. Besides being bullet-proof, turning heads and having great performance, it gave me good fuel economy when I wasn't lead-footing it and best of all, even after having owned it for about 6 years, I sold it for pretty much the same price I bought it for!

    Pros: Everything

    Cons: Rear-engine takes a little getting used to, ergonomics from the buckshot school of design.

    Started As My Daily Driver In 2001 And By 2004 Was A Full On Race Car — Handles like a high-powered go-kart. Vibrates in your chest at idle and fille the air with a snarl under acceleration.

    Pros: Loads of fun to track - great to use with students to show the line.

    Cons: Expensive to keep on the track

    Well I Had To Have One — I love the shape. Love the view from inside. Hated the performance, especially with the 3.2L with catalytic converters. Most ridiculous motorway cruising speed (the faster the most confortable). Rock solid except from eletricals and that silly heather.

    Pros: Looks, it's a legend, incredible mile eater on the motorway

    Cons: acceleration, handling (need your brown trousers)

    For Fun Only — Learn to drive this car and you start to appreciate why Porsche owners love the 3.2 Carrera. This car can be driven at track speeds all day and then throw the helmet in the back seat and drive home. Yes there is maintenance, however the late 80's 911's are some of the best examples of Porsche air cooled 911's.

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

    Pros: A  car worthy of a garage space; just for a fun second car.  3.2 engine with a  G-50 trans, limitied slip are rock solid.

    Cons: small, cramped interior, you wear it vs sit in it.
