Review

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.


Best Features

Handling. Gas mileage...


Worst Features

None.

Review

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.

I agree a cup holder would be nice.

Review

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.


Best Features

Cruising around on a nice day with the top down can't be beat. The 968 is well designed for both style and performance. There is nothing to "trick out" because the Porsche engineers already took care of that for you.


Worst Features

The spare tire system is a bit funky and leaves something to be desired.

Review

My requirements were ragtop, under 20k, ability to do some maintenance myself, good performance couldn't be something you see everyday, and it had to have head turning ability. The 968 Cab fit the bill in every way.....very low production numbers, excellent handling and speed, a very religious following, and turns more heads than anything else I was looking at because there are so few on the roads. Hope you find something that puts a smile on your face every time you turn the key.


Best Features

Exterior styling, good performance, a very religious following, and low production numbers


Worst Features

FM reception could be better and leather seats show wear quicker than others.

Review

The 968 is an excellent car. It has reasonable get up and go, and corners as if on rails (good tires are important). A stiff suspension benefits the handling characteristics, but this leads to a bit of a harsh ride. It's quality and reliability are excellent (exceeded my expectations). As far as sports cars go, it is among the most practical, with plenty of interior room and a reasonably sized trunk such that the car is good for every day needs.


Best Features

Good preformance and a rag top make for a fun drive. The gas tank is large. There are two lockable storage areas behind the seats. The trunk has room for a suit case or two sets of golf clubs. There is a shelf behind the seats that provides ample room for packages.


Worst Features

Keyless entry would have been nice, and the radio antenna leaves something to be desired.
