1997 Porsche 911 Carrera Targa 2dr Coupe


I bought my Targa as a year-old car
with 12k miles. This car does so many
things well that it would be hard to
criticize anything. I have used it as
one would a Camry for the last four
years. The car now has 52k miles and
hasn't let me down once. The Targa is
my daily commuter for a 100 mile round-
trip commute in the Bay Area. It also
me up and down California Highway one
from Monterey to San Luis Obispo. The
fact that it does both things equally
well should tell you everything you
need to know about this car.

Best Features

Power, torque, targa top, styling, comfort, handling. It does so many things so well.

Worst Features

Just that little bit more power. It sure would have been nice to have a Turbo Targa. Oh, and the Targa top whistles under certain conditions.
