    911 AT 40?


    what do you guys think about it?





    Re: 911 AT 40?

    This is what, in the auto journalism world, is called a slow news day.

    If all this dickhead had to write about was the few 911's he didn't like, I feel sorry for him. If I had more time, I could take you through several works of Michelangelo that really were not his best, what what's the point?

    The guy was hurting for a point of view.

    Well, I think the guy did have a point of view and it's not a very popular one. While I agree with some of his points and not others, I think it makes much more interesting reading than someone who has no real opinion of his own and just spouts the convential wisdom. I think it is a brave article actually.

    Hey Grant, would you have a pic of your PS/FR 993. That color combo must be stunning! TIA

    Re: 911 AT 40?

    Soooo... the 964RS was too stiff, but the 996GT2 too soft?
    Can't that guy make up his mind whether he wants softness or stiffness?
    A whole load of BS.

    I belive Mr Andrew Frankel is saying 964 RS are to stiff for road use and 996 GT2 are so soft VS 993GT2 and for track use

    Re: 911 AT 40?

    Anyone else notice that, in naming the 1989 911 Speedster on his list, the photo shows a 964 Speedster?

    Re: 911 AT 40?

    You're right!

    Re: 911 AT 40?

    Don - Actually, I don't have any photos of the 993, but I'll try to take one and PM you. Thanks for the compliment!

    Re: 911 AT 40?

    JimMcC, I also did because I own one, and there was a big difference between the 89 and 94. The 89 had a standard interior w/all options available. the 94 was more spartan and a better manual top mechanism. I loved that car, but it definitely was a limited use car. IMHO, the 2 911 Speedster variants should not be included. In fact there are really no Porsches that should not have been made. Any that shouldn't have been made did not make it past concept
