    I'm very patient for now I think I'm going to go for a "reconstructed" one ie fully restored from A-Z. A bit expensive though but then I'll have a "brand new" 72-73 2.4l S ....





    IMO it'll be worth it just for the peace of mind With the unrestored oldies you never know which surprise comes next

    Re: What would be a real fun older Porsche?

    I prefer the 964 to the 911 Carrera 3.2. Those accordion bumpers never did it for me.

    By the way, one of the very few original 964 Speedster Turbo Look was for sale last month in Belgium. Arctic Silver. Drop-dead gorgeous. And it gets even better when the engine is running.
    And wayyy too expensive (150 k Euro )

    Re: What would be a real fun older Porsche?

    I'd go pre 964. Power steering took away a lot of the lively feel of the 911 . Same with Ferraris post 348/TR. I don't miss trying to parallel park those cars , but those of us old enough remember a time even to the late 80s /early 90s , where only granny cars had power steering .

    Now that's what I call a real wait time
    Congrats to you on having found the right one



    Well I was not without a Porsche, was driving a 2003 Boxster S. But I was always looking around.

    I agree about the accordian bumper, but the 964 bumpers are not nearly as elegant as the pre-74 ones

    That's why the 993 is the way to go

    Yes, nicer bumpers but I'm missing the torpedo fenders
    Overall IMO the 993 is a beautiful car with perfect lines (the silhouette being more elegant compared to the 964) - actually the only part I'm not so keen on are the front lights/fenders

    Re: What would be a real fun older Porsche?

    The 993 might be the most beautiful of all 911, but it's lacking the "bug eyes" from the original. Which is why I prefer the 964.
    There's a 964 Turbo 3.6 parked right in front of my house right now (not mine, unfortunately ). Even the 993 Turbo S doesn't come close.

    964Turbo gets my vote

    I like the 930's (1978-1979 3.3L) more - manual steering, much lighter, and can modify it to make huge power...
