C4 in the mountains, awd

by on
Vehicle: 1990 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 2dr Coupe AWD

I've had my car (1990 964 C4) for over 6 years, It's be a great car with killer performance for it's year and awesome MPG, around 30 at 75mph. There great cars with lots of parts to upgrade. I purchased it from a Porsche dealer (smart when ever possible). They had all the records (1 owner) and the car had been serviced by them the entire time, previous owner drove it instead of a lot of 911 owners who just rub it with a diaper, my car had some milage on it. Not high for the year, about 90K. I've had lots of 911's over the years & I think (964's) are the most fun for the $. Buy a car that has great records, miles aren't that big of an issue, especially if your going to enjoy it as I do!

Almost perfect

Vehicle: 1990 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 2dr Coupe AWD

With a half dozen years of ownership, I have to say that this is one great car. It does everything well and rewards the true enthusist with performance and personality. Engine, clutch, brakes, transmission are bullet proof. Amazing reliabity in the running gear, but HVAC is an engineering absurity. I mean, why pump hot air from the engine when you could just run the hot oil (already passing by) through a 3-way valve and coil under the dash? And how many yards of leaky refrigerant hose do we have as it runs from one end of he car to the other? And those 5 servo motors in place of a few manual slide valves? Sorry. The HVAC is dumb.

A style all its own!

Vehicle: 1990 Porsche 911 Carrera Targa 2dr Coupe

I have had my Targa for 3 years and it's a pleasure just to take the car out on weekends and explore neat places for the day or overnight. It handles perfectly on the interstate as well as the back country roads. Luggage space is more than enough for the overnighters, so there's no worry about limiting what you want to take due to lack of room. The leg room is fantastic and when the Targa top is down, you feel like a million bucks cruising down the Interstate at 80 (oppps 70). I like the handling at all speeds, especially the way it hugs the road on sharp turns... although high performance tires are a must. Lastly maintenance is minimal but I service the car like clockwork!

True driver's car

Vehicle: 1990 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 2dr Coupe AWD

This car is a blast to drive. The AWD keeps everything in check, unlike older 911's that had snap oversteer. The 964 model is the last year of the classic body and one of the last air cooled engines. You feel every bump in these cars and they corner as if they were on rails. Its acceleration is instant and braking is the same. Be prepared to spend money on maintenance, they are a 16 year old high performance vehicle and require regular service.

Efficient machine

Vehicle: 1990 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 2dr Coupe AWD

This car exceedes the performance of all previous Porsches by a wide margin. It is a blast to drive and turns in 26 mpg on highway runs (if kept under 80mph). The brakes are fantastic. The AWD system almost fully makes up for the rear weight bias. The engine sounds much better than the new water-cooled jobs, too. The real deal. I had a fuel pump relay go bad once, and an A/C leak, but other than that, the car has been very reliable and capable of absorbing relentless abuse.

The most fun car i

Vehicle: 1990 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 2dr Convertible AWD

For a 15 year old car, this is one great driving machine. The car has plenty of power and incredible acceleration. The all wheel drive system give the car great traction and make turning a smooth process. You really feel the road in a fun way and with the top down it adds a whole new dimension fun driving.

Many years ago, long before I could have afforded a 911, I questioned why someone whould buy a 911 Turbo instead of a sleek Ferrari 328, Lotus Espirt, or Lamborghini Countach. I thought - and in some ...

I don't know much about 911s (except they are awesome & I really, really want one. I can tell you from personal experience not to be penny wise & pound foolish. While $27K may seem like a fan...

3) Has no record in international racing? The Corvette doesn't have the racing heritage of a 911, but Porsche doesn't back the new 997 in racing....
