1997 Highlights

The only change to the 1997 Porsche 911 is the availability of a Porsche-engineered child seat that will deactivate the passenger airbag when it is in place.


  • One of the most beautiful shapes in automotive history. Performance is equal to that of supercars costing twice as much.


  • Cramped, somewhat dated interior.

Camry reliability/Ferrari performance
After 9 years of ownership, here's what I conclude. (1)Annual inspections by a competent 911 technician are very important for spotting oil leaks, etc., in the early stages. (2)Avoid cars that have been tracked or modified...these can be a money pit for subsequent owners. Otherwise, the type 993s represent the best sports car for the dollar available.
A modern classic
One of the most enjoyable cars that I have driven. It is both an exotic in its performance and modernly comfortable its demeanor. Outstanding acceleration and handling. Great for the open road and fun along the switchbacks. As a city car it is less enjoyable with poor mileage and constant attention. Overall, however, it can not be beat for bringing a smile to your face.
I have owned other Porsches, 635 BMWs,1750 Alfa Romeos and MGs. This car is the most fun, best handling and best looking of all of them. The Turbo-look version (C2S) has all the appearance attributes without the high cost of purchase. Being one of less than 2000 made worldwide makes it desireable and consequently is holding it's value better than standard models, which doesn't hurt either. If this car has a fault, it resides in the difficulty in changing oil filters. During my period of ownership there have been no problems other than a wheel alignment and a dead battery after eight years. This car isn't driven often, but when it's used it's driven with vigor and begs for more.
