1990 Porsche 911 Carrera 2dr Convertible


This car exceedes the performance of all previous Porsches by a wide margin. It is a blast to drive and turns in 26 mpg on highway runs (if kept under 80mph). The brakes are fantastic. The AWD system almost fully makes up for the rear weight bias. The engine sounds much better than the new water-cooled jobs, too. The real deal. I had a fuel pump relay go bad once, and an A/C leak, but other than that, the car has been very reliable and capable of absorbing relentless abuse.

Best Features

No cup holders!

Worst Features

Air conditioning is undersized. Oil cooling lines along passenger foot well trasmit too much heat to the interior. Better headlights (you can outrun the headlights in second gear).
