The 911 is a classic worthy to be called "icon".

From a pure design-perspective the 964 is beautiful. And the RS version is a true dream-car.

Porsche 911 964. One of my dream cars.

 By: amanico : July 28th, 2021-21:07
I have a bit less than ten dream cars: The Ferrari 246 Dino, the Alpine A110, the Volvo P1800, the Jaguar E Type, curiously the Alfa Montreal, a good old Mercedes Pagoda 280 SL and... The Porsche 911. Porsche 911, you will ask me which one, as since 1963,...

Aaah, the RS...

Wonderful one!

I can only agree my friend

The Jubi remains my favourite car after all these years and indeed it has a soul

Correct, yes

Thanks my friend

When we meet, we go driving

That would be a dream!

 By: amanico : July 29th, 2021-06:29

Ok, we'll work on that.

I had a 964 as well

 By: penfriend : July 28th, 2021-22:38
but I prefer the 993 in terms of look and feel. especially since it is more agile on the road than the 964

What about the 997?

 By: amanico : July 29th, 2021-05:59

already too perfect in a certain sense

 By: penfriend : July 29th, 2021-10:56
I also had the 996 4S - though the most beautiful of the 996 line-up I got bored after 9 months

one thing to add though

 By: penfriend : July 29th, 2021-11:06
the clutch is very heavy on the 964 and 993. so with age and knee problems it might not be a good choice for everyone. that is why i sold my beloved 993 TT some years ago, although it already had a hydraulic supported clutch. Luckily, Sergio Marchionne (R... 

Aha! Yes!

The 30th Anniversary you showed - that’s The One. The most resolved design on the lights etc. And that colour was great. After that with the next generation it lost its retro cool. Best E.

What I think, too.

Most Unique 911

 By: SALMANQ8 : July 29th, 2021-12:55
the 996 is very special and under rated. It gives you the best of old and new in a very unique avant garde style still a small car vs. the much bigger 997. If you look at the whole 911 line up from beginning till now, 996 is the most unique one. It is als... 

Great wheels on all...

...but get the stick : )

totally agree 964 next would be 993

 By: Gelato Monster : July 29th, 2021-00:30
widebody or narrow? seems like you prefer narrow


 By: amanico : July 29th, 2021-17:29

This is the car I see in my mind when I think 911 or Porsche.

 By: Jay (Eire) : July 29th, 2021-00:53
And this was my original target, but the Z was both a more economical and perhaps more fun choice. I don’t rule out moving the Z for a 964 though. The other one for me is the 355. There are two in the garage where I park and every time I pass them they ju... 

I had a 1990 C2 Coupe…

Baltic Blue over Navy interior and miss it to this day! Kent

Wow, that's pure class!

 By: amanico : July 29th, 2021-06:08

great choice

 By: psfparis : July 29th, 2021-09:07
to me the best "old" 911

Thanks, Pierre.

 By: amanico : July 29th, 2021-09:09

Very nice

 By: GuyT : July 29th, 2021-09:54
It would be the 911 993 Targa for me. Never driven a Porsche and living in a city haven't had a car for some years or expect to again. Still that 993 has always appealed since the first time that I saw one, that sliding glass roof, beautiful car, to me an... 

993 Targa

 By: penfriend : July 29th, 2021-10:57
was with me for 5 years until a BMW crashed into me. beautiful car and cool roof but also noisy roof tbh

Too bad!

My pleasure! :))))

I have to weigh in on this one . . .

 By: Jim14 : July 29th, 2021-13:19
. . . as I have had more than ten p-cars. The 964 is fantastic for many reasons, not least of which that it is air-cooled. To suggest a water-cooled Porsche like the 997 is to suggest going to an entirely different category -- you might as well suggest a ... 

I too love the coupes.

 By: Mr.Gatsby : July 29th, 2021-13:42
But I think with the older ones I do feel the allure of going the cabriolet route. Top down, wind in your hair, driving along the coast. Feels like heaven I guess that’s what Amanico’s thinking. 964 is really sexy….wish I could get one. Best Gatsby

Coupe for me always ;-)

 By: Mr.Gatsby : July 29th, 2021-14:51
Too hot in my country to let the top down anyway. Best Gatsby

+1, my friend.

true, no kink, no interupted line

Simple…. Get both 😉

….as you know, I did.

You are the best!

OK, reasonable

Last year production, manual shift, overdrive, leather inside, no rust, $25k if it wasn't for COVID it would be in my driveway by now ...
