I have had several air cooled Porsche 911's and this first water cooled auto is a blast to drive and own. It has great handling and awesome excelleration through the gears. It can easily handle the C4 Corvettes and most of the tricked out Hondas and Subarus that aren't too tuned up. I don't waste the gas on the new 350ZX's that pull up and want to go at it. A lot of people tailgate you out of jealousy, but you get used to it and just slow down to aggravate them. Through the twisties, nothing out there can keep up with you as long as you stay on the gas pedal, the handling is phenomenal. I am going to sell this car soon and upgrade to a late model 996 Turbo.
The stock stereo sounds OK, it has plenty of headroom and an ample front trunk. Its stopping ability is short and crisp with no brake fade. The A/C also shuts down when you put your foot on the gas pedal all the way down. The climate control works fine and all the gauges are easy to read.
Give it bigger and firmer seat bolsters and a nicer sounding stereo. Add a center cupholder and a shorter throw gear box.
The sound of acceleration is
intoxicating, as is rolling through a
slow-speed zone in first or second
gear. This car turns heads. One minor
problem is lack of a cup holder. One
MAJOR problem is that every 20 year
old idiot in a honda will tailgate
you, as well the 'never will afford a
real car' minivan driving middle age
losers (male and female). Cannot tell
you how many times I have been driving
merrily along and some MORON pulls up
next to me and starts revving his
engine: especially contractors in
pickups trucks. Gas milage:
unbelievebly good. I just re-tread
with factory spec tires, and the cost
was under a grand.
Too much to list. Performance in
turns, acceleration sound and
smoothness, comfort, shifting. Gas
Add a cup holder! This is a daily
driver, and I want to be able to have
some water or coffee while I traverse
my work commute.
This car performs beautifully.
Precise handling, excellent
acceleration and great, classic
styling contribute to a great
experience in the vehicle. 27 mpg at
65 mph is a bonus. It ended up my
best mileage vehicle.
