My car has 60,000 miles on it and I have owned 4 Porsches. This is the finest, comfortable,and most reliable Porsche series ever built! Yes, they are expensive to maintain, I maintain it at Porsche exclusively and it runs perfectly. I get 18-19 mpg city which is rare for an exotic car. The key is maintenance. The distributor should be replaced every 50k due to the belts inside - that with a proper tune up is approx. $2800. When the engine seals need to be replaced, there are a lot of them, approx $2000 total. When serviced properly, they don't leak oil.The a/c and heat work wonderfully, not like older models with the red, pull up lever freezing for the heat to kick in.
Impeccable handling, speed, comfort, that awesome tiptronic transmission, yes it is a sports car lovers dream. Great mpg. A real Targa top, open air car.
Keep them air cooled, bring back the real Targa! Porsche should know the best 911 years are behind them. 2000 series are prone to excessive valve guide wear among other problems.They don't make them like they used to so classic car enthusiasts like myself buy the cars they used to sell.
My 1991 Targa is a replacement for a long ago 1973 Targa. Although Targas do have their issues, I love 'em. There's nothing like the top off low noise experience of a Targa. The 1991 is in near perfect condition and drives like a dream. The AWD pulls around corners like you are on a rail. The power is smooth and accompanied by a confident growl from the exhaust. The only problem I have is the a/c doesn't work. I'm sure it can be fixed but I usually have the top off when I'm driving so I don't really care. No other mechanical problems or oil leaks. This is a great drive.
Targa top. Body style. Unobstructed 360 degree view from the driver's seat
I have had 13 other Porsches over the past 30 years. This one is the best. It has tons of power, is reliable, has good air conditioning and steering, and it is comfortable. It is my daily driver and If I had to have one car for the rest of my life, this would it. This is saying a lot for someone who has owned over 65 cars - including 13 Porsches, 6 Jaguars, a Corvette, A SVX, 4 Miatas, a racecar, etc. In my opinion it is the best mix of performance and comfort - even in the Las Vegas heat.
The power, handling, and reliability.
The ride could be a little less hard, but it's not bad.
This car is a rocket. Modified with
larger turbo, SS exhaust, hotter cams,
fuel enrichment, 1 bar boost and Euro
springs this car makes about 380 SAE
hp at the rear wheels. These turbos
are great because they are easy to
Handling is excellent, the brakes
unparalleled, and the looks are
I love this car!
Torque, torque and more torque.
Brakes - incredible, really amazing
Deep exhaust note

lose 500 pounds.
