First, the prices listed on this site are ridiculously low...expect to pay about $65-70k for one 30-50k miles range, and premium for lower mileage. This is one of, if not the highest rated sports cars of all time...but who cares about them, if you like the look, the craftmanship, performance and drive will not disappoint. My friend with an NSX said he felt embarrassed with his Nissan next to the 911 TT. The styling is classic - why do you think Porsche ran back to it for the 997. This car is quick, fast, smooth, unbelievably stable, yet utilitarian enough to be my daily driver. What's the point of having a great car you never drive...otherwise it's just a really expensive piece of art.

None better for DRIVING, handling.
Handmade and reliable. Much more
romance and performance than the
watercooled production models of today.
An incredible feel that gets better
everytime you drive. This car grows on
you, and makes anything else you might
drive seem silly and mundane. It truly
is like a fine pair of gloves or boots,
getting better with every wear.
Better than sex. Perhaps just a bit
cheaper in the long run.
For the 1996 Porsche 911, the Trick Targa model joins the lineup, and power is up in midrange revs. New Carrera 4S model provides Turbo looks without Turbo price or performance. Bigger wheels are standard across the line, as well as Litronic headlights. New stereos and exterior colors compliment one new interior color this year. Remote keyless entry system gets an immobilizer feature.
