2001 Porsche 911

by RenotaSchoepp on 10-22-2012
Interesting Ride
Got the 911 Carrerra 4 used in a wicked deal; dream of a lifetime. It's an interesting ride. Fun, mindblowingly fun on a twisty highway. Handling in rough terrain is incredible. Driving in the city is interesting in that the handling is so good you don't notice it...it becomes a sedate drive in a way.
What I found to be odd, though, was that the VW GTI I owned was actually more fun to drive in the city than the Porsche. You can feel the physics of the GTI doing your errands - going around corners, the zip of it picking up on a stop line. I really only got the sense of a similar driving experience with the Porsche on the highway.
So, I'd recommend a VW GTI as a reasonable option if you can't afford the Porsche & the Porsche if you can.

1982 Porsche 911

Trim: SC
by allenwales on 10-11-2012
There is no substitute
This is a classic design 911 SC from the 80's, beautiful in chiffon white and very very sporty. Its air cooled engine and all the mods have been done as per expert recommendations to prevent known problems. I use this as our 3rd car - just for fun at the weekends - my 3yr old son just loves riding in it. The acceleration is great, the transmission is stick (old school) the space inside is great in the front row, now so much legroom in the back but what do you expect from a racing car design. I love the design, it makes me smile to see this sat in our garage and for the first time in my life I want to think about maintaining a car. On Sundays we unleash the beast, so guess I am riding my luck and counting the days to my first run in with the RCMP.

1976 Porsche 911

Trim: S
by Porsche911 on 10-11-2012
Classic
I have not had this car for long, so cannot really comment on reliability. Still a quick car for it age and really fun to drive. It takes you back to when cars were cars with out assisted brakes or steering. A super fun weekend car or daily driver but does require skill and concentration especially in the wet.
