PORSCHE 911 Targa (993) (1995

1997 Porsche Targa

Sometimes hard to maintain, especially the 1995 model

Best 911 Ever — With 272 horse power this car can still hold it's self to the new boy, and with less tech this is one of the lightest base 911's ever. With looks that the 997 is trying to have but can't get a grasp on the 993 is not a car you have to drive but just look at it. The 993 generation was the most important gen of all the 911's, it was the first to have a bi- turbo, four wheel drive turbo, gt2 model, and much more. If you buy a 993 it will cost more that a newer faster 996, but the 996 was ugly and did not have the feel at the wheel the 993 had or the optional radar detector that you could get under the dash. For many reasons I would go for the 993 rather then the 996 over even 997.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Anyone Who Thinks Him/her Self As A Car Nut Should Give 911 A Try! — A MT NA aircooled 911! My only complaint is that it is not lightweight enough. Achieving 180mph without a hitch. Need I say more? And it's absolutely fun on twisty roads as well! Go buy youself a 911, I mean it!


Power, handling, looks, build quality, exclusivity

Ruf Btr2 Convertible — There is nothing to dislike about this car, plenty of power, amazing grip, superb handling, solid build quality, turns heads wherever it goes and always puts a smile on my face. Clutchless gearchange takes a little getting used to but is rewarding when you have it sussed. The only addition I am thinking about is a roll cage!

The King Is Dead... — This is one of the last air cooled 911 turbo's (993 series). I like its bold styling and iconic shape. With the 996 series (the next model) Porsche changed the formula and developed water cooled engines. Thus forcing them to design a longer front end to accommodate the radiators, losing some of the great proportions of the original 911s. More recent 911s (the 997 series) attempt to recapture the 993 series styling of the 993, with its round headlamps, clean front end, broad shoulders, and muscular rear end. Despite having been introduced over a dozen years ago, the 993 Turbo acheived 0-60 mph in less than 4.0 seconds (Motor Trend, Car and Driver, Road & Track).
