Porsche 968 cab

Vehicle: 1994 Porsche 968 2dr Convertible

I couldn't think of a better used Porsche to purchase! The 50/50 front to rear weight ratio makes for astounding turning/handling capability. I would buy another! Actually, I found one with very low mileage, and did buy it. Wonderful car, with great gas mileage. 20-21 in town, and 25-29 on- the-road at 80 MPH. And people can't quite figure out what it is, so you get a lot of questions, and people talking to you at stop lights. Great fun! And don't forget to join the Porsche Club of America after you buy.




It's a porsche

Put some stickies on this car, clean it up and go! Better than most drivers, really a civilized track car. If you can hit the apex the car will reward over and over. Needs regular, and expensive maintenance. Figure $2000 every 10,000 miles routine stuff, and another $3000 for whoops.




Convertible sports cars are fun!

The 968 Cabriolet is a hoot! It has great styling, goes when you step on the gas, and handles like it is on rails. It also has a practical side with a reasonable trunk (enough for a couple bags of golf clubs), and some storage space behind the seats. The 968 is well built and reliable. It was great as my every day driver. The engine seems bullet proof and runs as well with 100k miles as it did when I got the car.




Everyman's dream car

Vehicle: 1994 Porsche 968 2dr Coupe

My '94 968 coupe, shipped from Florida to Southern California, replaced an '88 924S that gave me 360K miles before some kid with the ink still wet on his license rear-ended me and totalled it. That car absorbed the jolt and I'm convinced it saved my life. The 968 is the ultimate evolution of the 924, and if there is is better handling, more fun-to-drive automobile on the planet it has to cost 10 times what you'll pay for a 968, assuming you can find one. Repairs are costly, but then again, things seldom break. If there isn't an independent shop specializing in old water-cooled Porsches nearby, think twice about buying. If there is, go for it! IMO, best-looking car ever.

Fantastic handling, a superb sports

Vehicle: 1994 Porsche 968 2dr Coupe

The 968 is one of the great "secrets" of the Porsche world. It's fast, reliable, comfortable, even reasonably economical (> 20 mpg), and most of all blessed with _superb_ cornering. The twisty-road handling is so agile and graceful that it's easy not to realize how fast you're going. It has the precision feel of a surgeon's scalpel; a Corvette feels heavy and clunky in comparison. Another fun aspect: the 968 is one of the rarest Porsche models, so few people know what it is. It's a gorgeous car and people realize it's something exotic, it's fun to watch them try to figure out what it is. Watch out for people driving erratically while they cruise by staring at your 968 (not kidding).




One of the best cars

Vehicle: 1994 Porsche 968 2dr Coupe

This is one of the best Porsches ever made. It is rock solid. It is fun to drive with its 6-speed transmission. You must try one to understand. It is sad they don't make one like this anymore.
