Question Need info (buy 87 to 92/3)

I am trying to get all the info that is available on the 911 and 964 so I can make an "educated" search/buy. My last 911's were an 80 triple black targa that I had for a while then a 79 Euro coupe that I bought in Germany in 85 and owned till 93. In between I had bought a 77 Kremer Carrera 3.2 from Kremer that they had built for a customer who didn't think it was fast was for me, but the clutch was a killer and I had to sell it. I just happened to be in their showroom the day he "returned" it, one of their mechanic/race drivers took me for a ride thru Kohln in it....what a rush.
Anyway I want the G50 but what else...better a/c (Fort Lauderdale) a Targa (or a 2nd choice a cab) Turbo look, uh huh, Black or Oak Green Metallic...kinda a tall order...but I have time.
Can someone recommend all the books to buy for info.
Thanks a bunch

Get a copy of Adrian Streather's 'Porsche 911 Enthusiasts Companion' for stacks of useful info on the 964, and perhaps Peter Morgan's 'Original Porsche 911' for info on both models. Aichele's 'Porsche 911' and Frere's 'Porsche 911 Story' are great references too. None though presents a 3.2 vs 964 Q&A and I've not come across a book that does - I went through old car mags from 1989/90 to read testers opinions of the new model compared to old. You won't get better info, IMHO, than hanging out here and the 911 forum to get a feel for the pros and cons of each.
Best of luck!
