Having owned one for about a year now I can honestly say a well sorted 993 is the best handling Porsche I've ever driven. 30 years of air cooled 911 development can be felt in every curve. I've been driving it every day!

I can't imagine what the Turbo would be like.

Hate the color so checkbook stays intact. As if I could afford it anyway.

Hi Adam
I enjoyed reading your article on the rescue of the 'non' fire damaged 993. Who could refuse a 993 for 'just' $5k. Only the Brave !
Shame it carries the info on the title.
Cheers Jay

I agree it's a shame but just like having a non-original motor, you can't see the motor while driving, and I can't see the title while driving this 993. It's a wonderful car to drive.
