03 Turbos are nice cars. Expensive to maintain; but keep their value quite well. Some are way overpriced; but thats the norm. You could compare it to a Z06 Corvette that will stay with this car all day long. I know from personal experience. Porsches have more of the FUN factor !!!

That I Have To Sell It — This is a grat second car. I use it on the weekends and some times to go to work. This is a very reliable car. The convertible option is one of the best for this type of cars. This is the closest to a moorcycle you will be on four wheels. People will not stop at looking at you when you pass by.

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

Pros: Great to drive

Cons: back seats do not have enough room for adults

There Is No Substitute — Best overall Sports Car. Quality of build is second to none. The price of ownership is certainly on the expensive side. But, as they say, you have to pay to play. The experience is totally worth it. Awesome handling, like nothing else, unless you get into the truly exotic category were prices begin at 400k plus. And, the exotics are definitively not made for daily driving were as the Porsche is.

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

Pros: Power and Handling

Cons: Repairs can be expensive

Total Satisfaction — Older Porsche's are the best value for sports cars, when taken care of properly they will last a very long time and the depreciation has already been absorbed by the initial owners. The engineers at Porsche design components to be very durable, so 60k miles on this car is just when its getting broken in.

Pros: My heart rate changes with every movement of the throttle!!!

Cons: After a while you need a bit more power...

Best Porsche Bang For The Buck — These cars are probably the best bang for the buck going in the sports car world. A car that had an original sticker price of $145K that you can buy today for the high 30's and low 40's. A car with the same engine as the GT2RS. A car that can be reliable moddified up to 600 HP without having to change internal engine components. A car you can drive very very hard and it will take it all day long. A car with brakes that feel like the arresting wire on an aircraft carrier. A sports car with the best visibility around. A sports car that if driven conservatively can get high 20's mpg but if pushed can reach 200 MPH. Loved this car!

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

Pros: Super Super Fast! Mezger designed dry-sump GT1 motor. Reliable. Can drive in snow. A lot of bang for the buck right now. Awesome brakes! A very fun car to own.

Cons: Interior noise is loud. Has more squeaks and rattles than you'd expect from a high-end German sports car like Porsche. Although very reliable they do have a few chronic issues that are very common. Clutch accumulators leak & coolant pipes dislodge from engine case, but overall a very reliable car.

All I Thought It Would Be — Great car- iconic - if you can you must. It has been super reliable as well, used these are supercars at regular sedan prices. The interior is simple but high quality and has really stood up well over the last 5 years I have owned mine.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fast and reliable - nice combo! Unbeatable value used

Cons: Not much...

My Analysis Of A Porsche 996 Turbo S Us Spec Left Hand Drive —

I miss it and will buy another 911 turbo newer model that is for sure. great amount of enormous power and reliability is bullet proof, tonnes of fun to drive, does eat up a lot of rear tyres depending on how hard you drive her but there is no point in buying a car like this if you not explore your self on the road and the country lanes when it allows you to appreciate it fully. I can say one thing though the car it self gave me great pleasure to own and drive but the OPC Porsche centre are wankers to deal with and always used to cause me a whole heap of stress and anxiety as they always used to mess the car up when they returned it to me always 1 thing or another used to go wrong short starter earth, coil pack after a major service, clutch installation issues the list is endless and I wasted 1000's on allowing them to rip me off for a unprofessional service from the main dealers it was appalling. Only the last 2 years when I started using private renowned specialists I realised how much cheaper and cost effective it became to own the car where I decided to upgrade the wheels and sports cat and silicone hoses and uprated throttle body with recirculation twin piston valves etc I got so much done and it was a fraction of the money to have so much done including another clutch change through them that I realised how simple n easy they where to work on never again I will go to main dealers. Sadly I had so much done but the car I was too bored by then n fancied a change so I got rid of it however 3 months later owning a 335i bmw twin turbo convertible and was hoping to buy a 2nd car CL65 AMG that I decided naaa I miss my turbo n have decided to sell the 3 series and down grade the idea of owning a CL65 to a CL63 AMG and buy another 911 turbo 997, nothing can give you that feel of a 911 turbo seriously once you own one you will realise it is the ultimate weapon of choice even my girl friend misses her which was rather surprising as she hated me driving it as she thought it was too flash and didn't fancy the idea of other woman checking me out lol. PINKY was the name of my car and it wore the number plate "H8 US X" nothing will ever replicate that baby as she was one of a kind I drove her daily and people in my town are glad she is gone even the police lol as I drove her hard day in day out and she never missed a beat.

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

Pros: Buy one if you never owned one and are in the market for owning one promise you wont regret it.

Cons: that she was going old in terms of design and I fancied something newer as she didn't look the same as when I brought her with 13k miles on it when she was a fresh looker.

Porsche 911 C4 — Fast but surprisingly practical (in its own fashion) and 25mpg on longer runs so not as uneconomical as other 320+ hp cars Overall cost of ownership also not bad, no more than 5 series beemers or e-class mercs I've had

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Power

Cons: nothing
