So. IMHO the results show:

That Carrera Coupes are common(and rightly so).

That Porsche ran out of three quarter windows and roof panels resulting in the building of so many Targas.

That most of us wish we cast that 1 RS vote (you lucky man Butzi).

And that C2S owners collect here in unpresidented numbers to debate C2S prices with other owners for reassurance. Twisted Twisted Twisted Twisted Twisted

1998 Porsche 993 Turbo

PostPosted: Fri Dec 14, 2007 2:10 pm    Post subject: Reply with quote

first time they got the chassis number incorrect, as I put it down as a 993 turbo (which is on the coc, as well as 911 turbo s)

they said that 993 turbo was not a uk model but the 911 turbo s was so thats what it got put under.

also remember the good insurance company stating that the 993 turbo does not exist only a 911 turbo for the 1998 model year.

deep joy

daniel, may i ask why u went from a c4 to a c2? isn't the c4 a better car? or have i got that totally wrong?
Did that lover of Porsche fan Clarkson do a lap trial on both cars to find that basically both cars performed the same? this should point towards a persons pereference between the 2, say weight vs grip

I have just (6 weeks ago) acquired a 993. This is the first Porsche I have owned since a 911 of 1977 vintage. (Ah! PUL 81R, where are you now?)

It has a sports exhaust and sounds fabulous, especially on the downshift with a double declutch. I hope this is the start of a long and satisfying relationship, but my wife calls it a mid-life crisis.....

Hello Everyone!

Just bought a lovely 1994 MY Carrera Coupe, iris blue with marble grey. Took a while to find it but am very pleased with it so far. Very Happy

It is just so much better than my old 3.2 Carrera! Surprised

Great forum BTW.
