General Comments:

The Porsche 911Sc is not the quickest, most desirable car in the world today, but owning this car for 15 years has been and still is, a wonderful joy. Although the car is only used on dry days, and always garaged, it has never let me down once.

Where else can you find a car that is as reliable, still looks desireable and turns heads as much as the 911, yet in todays world costs very little to buy and own.

As the owner of several classic and modern performance cars, the 911Sc still is a buzz, and a real pleasure to drive.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
