Yup. I've owned three 911s, and if I buy another, it'll be pre-996, or a GT3 if the prices drop to a more reasonable level.The fact remains if you ask a real car guy which porsche are the best, 911 rsr and earlier model 911 derivaties come to mind, the 996 tt is great but 130k is alot of cake, the new 996 gt2-3 are cool also big bucks
i totally agree. if i were to buy a porsche today, it would most probably be a 993 turbo.originally posted by grudkin
997 is an improvement over the 996, but still not up to the 993's appearance, IMO. And I doubt the quality will match that of the 993 either
Someone on a board who was commenting on the 997 spy shot once said, "if I wanted a 993, I'd get a 993!"shay2nak said:i totally agree. if i were to buy a porsche today, it would most probably be a 993 turbo.
I believe the 997 gains 55lbs, but at the same time it gains 10hp. The S version has about 355hp. And I must agree that the 993 is the best, and my favorite being the 1997 Turbo S.MickOpalak said:I wonder if the 997 will weigh 3500 lbs like the 996...

I agree too. 993s RULES!
Droool :clap: The old turbos might be slower than the new ones, but man! do they have character. I also think they are harder to drive, I like that too! The new cars are soo perfect (engineering) they are boring.shay2nak said:THIS IS A PORSCHE!!
