1988 PORSCHE 911
The air-cooled Porsches are amazing in the way they handle - like go karts. They won't throw you back into the rear seat like a modern 911S or 911S Turbo or new Corvette in acceleration. 0-60 in six seconds was the gold standard back in 1988. But for sheer non-computerized driving fun, they can't be beat!

2009 PORSCHE 911
My second 911. This is the first with PDK and absolutely loved it. Great in commute traffic and even more surprising, great for hard fun driving. The realaibility of the car has also been superb. Love the car.
1999 PORSCHE 911
For the price, this is the best Porsche you can get. Don't let the Porsche snobs turn you away. Just be sure, when you purchase, to have a couple grand set aside for some repairs. Namely the IMS drive.
2007 PORSCHE 911
This car is awesome. It was a replacement for my 2008 cayman s that I lost after hitting a pole. In the end same horsepower , same handling, but much more simple without all those annoying frills . like that crappy suspension bs system, its all about the driver. Like it should be.
1991 PORSCHE 911
Had the car 8yrs. Great car I can do a lot of simple fixes on Porsches and major on US. If problems be prepared to spend some major bucks

2001 PORSCHE 911
Always wanted a Porsche 911. Best sports car for the money. If buying from a private party make sure you do a pre purchase inspection.
2003 PORSCHE 911
2003 911 4S. This is an awesome car. The 2003 4S seems to be reasonably priced compared to the older models. Performance that you would expect from a Porsche. Very pleased with this purchase.

1987 PORSCHE 911
This is a driver's collector car. I use it around town, driving around local canyon roads, PCA events and the annual Targa California 1000-mile drive. The 3.2-liter engine is quite long lasting and reliable. The Getrag G50 transmission installed from 1987 to 1989 transforms the car.

2000 PORSCHE 911
Beautiful Mirage Metallic color, 6 speed manual car in excellent condition. It has been garaged and well maintained, so the paint and interior are in excellent condition. These cars really handle & stop well. If you are interested in getting a 911, I think the 996's are the best value. Just make sure you have a service history!
1999 PORSCHE 911
So far, I'm delighted. Much more comfortable to drive than the Boxster I traded in on it. I wouldn't use it as a winter driver here in NE Ohio, but it's a very comfortable car for both country road and freeway driving. Very happy with my purchase.

2005 PORSCHE 911
What an amazing automobile. Unbelievable that you can get so much car for so little money. The handling is connected, responsive. The noises are incredible.
2006 PORSCHE 911
Bought if for the price and reputation of Porsche. Earlier 911 had what's called is a IMS bearing failure so make sure your car doesn't fall within those years.

1997 PORSCHE 911
Classic Porsche styling. Every sports car wants to be a air cooled 911. Look at the toyotas, mazda's and BMW's being produced today... There 993 want to be's. The performance of the pre 1999 naturally aspirated models is legendary; add AWD and it eats corners like its on rails.

Used Porsche 911 Information
Merely mentioning the words Porsche 911 will undoubtedly generate knowing smiles and mischievous expressions among any sports-car enthusiast within earshot. This is probably because, since its inception in 1963, the Porsche 911 has been a classic example of the high-performance sports coupe. This vehicle's iconic curves, endless customization options and rear-turbo engine combine to make this beauty a real beast.
While its design has remained distinctive after more than 50 years of production, it's under the hood that the Porsche 911 gets the bulk of its reputation. As technology has evolved, so has the engineering of the 911 engines. The earliest model featured a revolutionary, air-cooled, six-cylinder engine with 128 hp in the 1960's. Fast forward to today, and the 911 engines are cooled with water, not air, and many models exceed 500 hp.
Racing competitions have certainly seen their fair share of tuned-up Porsche 911 entrants, as the vehicle lends itself to being customized down to to every nut and bolt. Owners adjust the angles of engine mounts, types of bucket seats, rear spoiler materials'they even install roll bars to bolster the frame to protect the driver in the event of a major crash. The Porsche 911 is certainly not your typical two-door coupe. However, it may surprise you to know that newer 911 models have been designed to consume less fuel'an added bonus for a sports car that's also fun to drive.
However, not all Porsche 911 owners feel pressure to race their precious performance machines. Many choose to keep these vehicles well-maintained and protected from the elements'perhaps only taking their Porsche 911's out for a spin on weekends or when the weather is exceptionally pleasant. The 911 may even be the only car some owners keep in their garages'delegating the driveway for their everyday vehicles. If you own a Porsche 911, you can expect heads to turn as you drive by. Just remember to keep your eyes on the road.
