Black over Tan C4S - Classic! by Happy 993 owner! on 08/28/2011. Trim: 1996 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S, Owned less than 1 year.
11
Pros: Classic 911 "wide-hip" styling that still turns heads 15 years after it rolled off the assembly line. Combines superb handling with "Oh, my goodness" acceleration. Engine exhaust note is pure music. I am a big guy - 6' 4", 200+ pounds - and I fit very comfortably in the driver's seat. I can drive 200 miles with no aches or pains. Not a drop of oil leaking after 96k miles. Still drives better than most new cars off the lot. Everything, from the bullet-proof engine to the "bank vault" doors to the wide body look, screams quality and style. Oh, yeah. The wife likes it too!
Cons: Took so long to find the right one. (But it was worth the wait.)
Overall review: The new water-cooled 911s may be technically superior, but nothing looks, sounds, or drives like the 993. For every day driveability and reliability, combined with supercar performance and classic looks, nothing touches it...period. Show me another 15 year old car that still has that "new car" leather smell. If you're even thinking about a 993, do your research and do the deal. You won't be sorry. Prices are reasonable now because of the economy, but I predict serious appreciation in the next five years.

Can drive it to work on weekdays and drive to the track to race on weekends by carreraguy from Fort Nelson on 12/22/2008. Trim: 1996 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S, Owned 7 years.

Pros: Driving it hard. Makes my hands sweat just thinking about driving it. Pretty fast but nothing will out corner it and the brakes are the best on any car. Timeless styling, turns heads.
Cons: Too easy to drive very fast. Cost of replacement parts.
Overall review: Great car last of the aircooled breed. The engine noise is music.
