1997 Porsche 911 Carrera 2dr Coupe


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.

Best Features

Appearance, handling and performance.This is a driver's car and responds to skilled pilots with superb capabilities.

Worst Features

My only complaint is the radio which could have better performance and reception. It certainly doesn't need cup holders or the like.
