The Porsche 993 (the 911s from 1995 to 1998) Rock!
written on 04-20-2011
Having owned many a Porsche, I have to say my 993 remains my favorite Porsche.
I have both a Cayenne and a 997 turbo model 911, and none compare to the feel or raw driving pleasure of the 993 models, especially the S or Turbo.
Despite the power and performance (still better than 99% of the sports cars produced), it can be a daily driver --- definately a rough, bumpy, sports car, ride, though.
The TMV purchase price is highly unrealistic.
As the last "real" Porsche, 993s have become collector items.
I would expect to pay high $50K or mid $60K for a 993S in great condition.
The coupes are more expensive than the convertibles.
