Perfect beginner Porsche for low money


The exhaust broke (too much rust). Costs about 350 Euro.

General Comments:

Fun to drive.

Running costs are not too high if you have got a katalysator.

Fuel consumption is about 10 litres (when driven fast).

Be sure to buy a Targa! When it gets to summer, you will know why!

No people above 1.65m on the rear seats!

The car should have no rust!

Bad seats are standard.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
