You know what really surprises me is how small it is. Next to a modern 911 it looks miniature. My wife's Mini has almost the same dimensions. I hate how performance cars seem to get bigger every year, i.e. 3 series...

I had two 90's 965's aka Carrera 2 Turbo coupes. Simply get your right knee under the column first as you slide in. 911's have great leg room tunnels- the front of the car is empty. Actually a great car for a large person.

I agree, every time I see a 935 DP, cry, however, my left knee thanks me if stuck in bumper to bumper traffic

Thought it could have been this car.
Been in Wellington, FL until last year after having a partial reconditioning and they polished the. Fuchs like yours as well. It was curious at least, but clearly just coincidental I see.

I had a 993 Targa among several other Pcars and while the targa was rare and in perfect condition, I'd have traded for a 993 C2/4S that had been flogged in a heartbeat. Those are the ones that are going to skyrocket first. Some of the 993s I've seen are pretty garden variety and beat up and they are still seeing over $40k (with a rebuild in their near future).

The SC years were nice as well and that's certainty a nice color. Enjoy it!

930's had the damn 4spd and the big rubber baby bumpers with the side belows. A/c was marginal in my cars, even with the updates, is it any better in the water cooled cars ?

I have a thing for the g50 and the later 965 and 993 body work
The 3.6 twin was the best 911

My 935 was not familiar with that word AC LOL, neither was the RS

I particularly can't stand the 993 looks and specially the Targa

The newer ones have Great AC ( except the GT2 2003..it sucked , but made up in other areas :-) )

The AC wasn't too bad on the 964 TT ( 1991 ) 3.3 Inter-cooled

I had a black on black 91. Those weren't twins. The first twins were the 94/95 model year with the 3.6.
http://www.topspeed.com/cars/porsche...64-ar1017.html

The 993 was essentially the same as the 964/965 except the front fenders/headlights were angled for a "faster" look.

I still have the 4 speedline wheels and tires off my second turbo as pictured on this blue car if anyone is searching. The rears are 300/35/18's
Tires are potenza's.

A/C in my 993 was great.

993 was the best looking 911 and had proper curves. I miss mine...

Sadly not, just a regular body C4 with a turbo front bumper.

I just spent 3 days driving my Father In Law's 1999 996 C2 coupe. Fast, but not nearly the car the 993 is! I hear the 997 is better, but still no 993.

Cheers,

Paul.

The newer 3 series are the size of my old 5 series; or at least it seems a similar size.

While the amenities of newer vehicles (European), the older versions are a lot of fun to drive and a 'closer feeling' with the car and road.

Your response makes no sense whatsoever. Please clarify.
