Front Seats Ranked 1990 Chevrolet Corvette better.
"the corvette seats have far greater lateral support than the porsche seats, and the corvette seats are far more comfortable......"
Would Buy Ranked 1990 Chevrolet Corvette better.
"its bang for the buck! these corvettes are very reasonable right now in the open market, and the porsche isnt as fast, nor does it handle as good if you happen to be the kind of driver that pushes the limits. the porsche is a mid engine car, which means if you let off the throttle during a bard curve you just lost the car.......if you arent an experienced race driver your tendency will be to let up before it says to.....the corvette has by far much better road manners at under 100 mph....."

My Idea Of The Porsche — The 1990 911 964 is my idea of what the Porsche was meant to be. My first matchbox car was the bug eye Porsche. I've always wanted one and in 1995 I purchased this one. I am having the engine rebuilt and an after market AC added to this car so that I can endure the Texas summers. Aside from a few mods, like the AC, the car is completely stock

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

Pros: The 5 speed manual is a great plus, it reminds me of driving the Autostrada of Italy while I run through the gears

Cons: The backend has been known to break loose from time to time while shifting through the gears

Fun Car To Drive — Fun to drive. Great power. Very quick and fast. Shifts very smooth. Brakes are excellent with new pads. Top works perfectly as it was recently adjusted by a local Porsche mechanic in San Antonio. A/C blows cold air. Heater works great.

Pros: Low miles; excellent mechanically; new seats; great brakes

Cons: No radio

The 911 To Buy Today — A 911 is always something special, but IMO a 964 today it really a good bet. You can still find good second hand offers with low km. Quality is great and performance definitely better than the 250 hp suggest if associated to today's standards. Still air cooled, and closer to the original shape than later models are. It can be fast (250 km/h on German Autobahn) but also pretty light on the purse as it doesn't drink much more than my A4 2.8, despite the big 3.6 liters boxer engine. Very comfortable on long trips, great sound and a future classic.

Pros: Looks, performance, 911 spirit

Cons: Expensive to fix if something goes south

Wow — Amazing. I never thought my dad would actually buy it. Unfortunately, it's a stick and I've yet to learn how to drive standard, but I am learning.

Pros: Go-kart on steroids. 'Nuff said.

Cons: VERY small (pro and con)

Loved It — The only reason I didn't buy it was that I didn't feel comfortable driving to client meetings in it. How many client meetings have I driven to since? 0!

Pros: performance, design, handling

Cons: not the most comfortable car for passengers

World Class Sports Car — I've had 3 Porsche 911s. The 964 version is the most fun so far. It is a world class sports car that is very affordable at this time. They are certainly on the rise now in value. NADA "excellent" retail in now up to $34,200.00. The car is rock solid and always gets the thumbs up from other folks. I've only had to change the oil so far. I've had her 3 years now with no problems. These are the last hand made air-cooled Porsches. Mine only has 3000 original miles on it. If you don't want attention then do not buy this car.

Pros: I love everything about the car. Performance is outstanding. Handling is as good as it gets. The braking is unbelievable. The shape of the car is absolutely beautiful. I've had the car for three years and have had to do nothing except change the oil. I'm getting about 24 MPG. Best of all, my grandkids love the Porsche and the rear jump seats are perfect for them.

Cons: I've been trying to think of some cons, but can't come up with any. Sorry.
