1997 Porsche 911 Turbo 2dr Coupe AWD


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.

Best Features

Acceleration. Handling. Styling (old school yet modernly sexy).

Worst Features

More reliable turbo seals (if car is not cooled down properly seals can deteriorate and cause oil leakage into turbos, resulting in smoking). Front windshield seal tends to squeak (easily fixed with Pedro's Ice Wax).
