My car has 60,000 miles on it and I have owned 4 Porsches. This is the finest, comfortable,and most reliable Porsche series ever built! Yes, they are expensive to maintain, I maintain it at Porsche exclusively and it runs perfectly. I get 18-19 mpg city which is rare for an exotic car. The key is maintenance. The distributor should be replaced every 50k due to the belts inside - that with a proper tune up is approx. $2800. When the engine seals need to be replaced, there are a lot of them, approx $2000 total. When serviced properly, they don't leak oil.The a/c and heat work wonderfully, not like older models with the red, pull up lever freezing for the heat to kick in.

My 1991 Targa is a replacement for a long ago 1973 Targa. Although Targas do have their issues, I love 'em. There's nothing like the top off low noise experience of a Targa. The 1991 is in near perfect condition and drives like a dream. The AWD pulls around corners like you are on a rail. The power is smooth and accompanied by a confident growl from the exhaust. The only problem I have is the a/c doesn't work. I'm sure it can be fixed but I usually have the top off when I'm driving so I don't really care. No other mechanical problems or oil leaks. This is a great drive.

I have had 13 other Porsches over the past 30 years. This one is the best. It has tons of power, is reliable, has good air conditioning and steering, and it is comfortable. It is my daily driver and If I had to have one car for the rest of my life, this would it. This is saying a lot for someone who has owned over 65 cars - including 13 Porsches, 6 Jaguars, a Corvette, A SVX, 4 Miatas, a racecar, etc. In my opinion it is the best mix of performance and comfort - even in the Las Vegas heat.
