    I mean, that first one has 30,000 worth of meters and controls. The second one is a nice build too.

    the first one is incredible and definitely well worth the price
    the second is sweet but a bit too "bubbafied" for my taste
    the third is sick and well worth whatever it sells for but im not a fan of the slant nose

    Aircooled boxers are great motors, and the 911 chassis is so strong and stable, that words can't describe it. You have to drive one.

    Like I said, my Vega was faster through the revs and easier to handle on a corner, but the 911 still has a certain... je ne sais pas.

    And if you were serious about that "jet engine" comment I'm coming up and kicking you squah in the nuts.

    For pure eye fucking, the 930, in black.

    For driving, the '88 Carrera NA. For ownership, the 91 Turbo in guard's red.

    For totally rewarding to own, and slick to look at, the 86 928S. For ease of ownership, the 1983 944 NA. (The one that's porsche on the outside, VW on the inside)

    Just my opinion.

    boooooooo

    convertible = :thumbsdown:

    also on a side note.... ive driven the C4 before... its actually too solid and handles too well
    i took the car down some twisty back roads and hit corners well above the speeds i should have been hitting them at with a normal car
    the C4 laughed them off like i was barely turning
    it was actually boring to drive
    i would need to drive at such ridiculous speeds to make it exciting in that car that i would end up dieing in a fireball if i fucked up even a little bit
    great car for anyone who is looking for a sports car they can drive in a foot of snow or in pouring rain or through a plague of locusts
    not so great car for someone who wants a car that feels exciting to drive on dry twisty roads without traveling at triple digit speeds

    that was actually a Top Gear episode.. when they did the rally leg indoors with the Carerra and the C4. The C4 is a more competent vehicle, but not as fun. And for only a millisecond advantage, not worth the loss of "fun".

    Basically, the car was too perfect.

    That's exactly how I felt when I drove a 2008 Audi TT 2.0TFSI S-line for a week. I found myself doing 180 in 30 zones just for it to be fun, then doing 200+ in the city. Btw, you know you're going too fast when the 7-series bmw you just passed flips his brights at you for not giving him more time to GET THE FUCK OUT OF THE WAY! lol.

    All in all, I prefer the drive of a 944. Dunno why, it feels more "safe" in the sense that you won't be tempted to try and kill yourself. The 911 seems like it's got a little "too much" power, to me at least.
