1997 Porsche 911 Coupe Carrera 2dr Coupe

Review

After 9 years of ownership, here's what I conclude. (1)Annual inspections by a competent 911 technician are very important for spotting oil leaks, etc., in the early stages. (2)Avoid cars that have been tracked or modified...these can be a money pit for subsequent owners. Otherwise, the type 993s represent the best sports car for the dollar available.

Review

I have owned other Porsches, 635 BMWs,1750 Alfa Romeos and MGs. This car is the most fun, best handling and best looking of all of them. The Turbo-look version (C2S) has all the appearance attributes without the high cost of purchase. Being one of less than 2000 made worldwide makes it desireable and consequently is holding it's value better than standard models, which doesn't hurt either. If this car has a fault, it resides in the difficulty in changing oil filters. During my period of ownership there have been no problems other than a wheel alignment and a dead battery after eight years. This car isn't driven often, but when it's used it's driven with vigor and begs for more.

A modern classic

1997 Porsche 911 Coupe Turbo 2dr Coupe AWD

Review

One of the most enjoyable cars that I have driven. It is both an exotic in its performance and modernly comfortable its demeanor. Outstanding acceleration and handling. Great for the open road and fun along the switchbacks. As a city car it is less enjoyable with poor mileage and constant attention. Overall, however, it can not be beat for bringing a smile to your face.

Review

This car is amazing! Despite its age the 993 TT is by far one of the most rewarding cars to drive. The steering is not too heavy nor too light--just perfect for feeling the road and understanding where the car is relattive to its limits. I used to own Mercedes and this is definitely not a Mercedes.

Best car I have ever owned and driven

Review

This is by far one of the best cars I have ever owned. I used to have Ferrari 512, and then Ferrari 348 spyder. Porsche 911 turbo is the ultimate beast. 1/4 mile 12.2 sec stock. Best handeling, best breaking and the most head turner car. I love it. If i had money, I would buy another 911 turbo and modify the turbos

Nearly perfect

1997 Porsche 911 Coupe Carrera Targa 2dr Coupe

Review

I bought my Targa as a year-old car with 12k miles. This car does so many things well that it would be hard to criticize anything. I have used it as one would a Camry for the last four years. The car now has 52k miles and hasn't let me down once. The Targa is my daily commuter for a 100 mile round- trip commute in the Bay Area. It also takes me up and down California Highway one from Monterey to San Luis Obispo. The fact that it does both things equally well should tell you everything you need to know about this car.
