1997 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 3.6 from UK and Ireland
Gob smacking pleasure
There have been numerous changes of tires. One does not own them rather you rent them!
There was a problem with the power steering at about 60,000 requiring the garage for two days.
Stone chips from pleasure induced speeding.
I have been fortunate to drive a number of exciting cars ranging from an Imprezza to TVRs. No car so encapsulates the term drivers car than the Porsche 993. After 40,000 miles it still brings a smile to my face!
It is a crime to drive this car on motorways, even if it is capable of comfortable speeding in excess of 100mph, this car is most at home on smaller roads where its excellent road holding makes it feel as though you are driving with your fingers on the the road. Every action of the car being communicated to the driver effectively.
More than just a straight line speed machine it's a joy to push around corners and twisting roads.
Inside you have a car designed four people. Two very small children in the rear, one passenger in the front and one very happy driver.
In terms of the range of the 911s, this 993 is more comfortable and safer than older models without disappearing down the route of the hairdressers car that the 996 sadly became.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
