    One of the most beautiful shapes in automotive history. Performance is equal to that of supercars costing twice as much.

Born to run

Vehicle: 1998 Porsche 911 Carrera 2dr Convertible

This is the machine you always dreamt about driving. Once you drive it, you will dream about how the drive was better than the dream. What a car! Power and handling grace built within a great looking body style. You feel this car's purpose on the curves and straight aways. This is not a car you steer. This is a car you drive. Massage your way through the gears and you are the car. Take the top down and feel the wind. You are living the good life. If you love driving, then this car was born to run for you!! Favorite drive: Pacific Coast Highway south of Big Sur

Best true sports car on the road. Low miles - great condition 98 appeals to me more so than a 2004 or 2004 996.

Forget the mass produced liquid cooled ugly 996 monstrosities known for its unreliable engines. You need to get the 993 with its wonderful curves and traditional air-cooled engine! 98' was the last year for this engine.....don't miss out!

This is a 10 year old car that only has 31,000 miles. By comparison, my 911S Cab turns 2 years old next week, with 16,800 miles on the odometer. The risk is great that this Boxster has sat for long ...
