Run from the '92, I drove to Novi, Mich. to see it. Most of the car has been painted, lousy job. I don't trust the mileage or the seller.

I have a '91 C2 Cab, you'll love the cab. I too like the classic front end. the 964 is the better car in my opinion. I would take those rims off and put the original d50's on. There are some other decent options for wheels. good luck, there is no bad porsche....

not knowing your location or $$ limit, there is a 964 turbo for sale on the 964 turbo forum. if i was in the market for a 911 i'd be on a 964 turbo like white on rice on a paper plate with a glass of milk in a snow storm
if your going to jump in, use both feet......

Thanks, shockm. The guy has been a real jerk to deal with; so, I will be more than happy to cut him loose in this process.

Shockm:

If you don't mind me asking, what exactly was wrong with the paint job on the '92 cab in Novi, and why are you suspicious of the mileage?

We were looking at the car for my brother-in-law, drove 174 miles to see it. The seller told us that the car had no paint work, was near perfect....blah blah blah. When we got there and asked a few questions, he became irate and said "this is why I don't like to sell locally, I have to answer too many questions". I thought, well, he's obviously an idiot, but let's look at the car. He pulled the car out, and I immediately noticed the overspray on the drivers front fender, red paint on the rubber trim around the door, and 3 holes in the drivers door jamb with hokey-looking plastic caps in them. Someone had fixed some dents in the left rear quarter and figured this looked okay. The only panels that did'nt look painted were the hood and engine lid. I'm suspicious of the miles because the paint on the hood looks to have way to many chips & wear for 50k miles. The car just has a "tired" look to it if you know what i mean. Keep looking, the right car is out there. Last month, I bought my '91 964 coupe with 43k miles for $22k. Great condition, no paint work....There's my opinion, happy hunting.

Thanks, shockm. This guy sells almost all his stuff through Ebay, probably hoping not to have to see as many folks face to face. Like I said, I thought he was a real a-hole to deal with and it sounds like you had a similar experience. I've decided to buy the best '87-'89 or '91-'93 C2 I can find. Please let me know if you see anything interesting and have a great Thanksgiving!!

As a current owner of both a '87 Carrera and a '92 964T, I can honestly say my -overall- preference is my '92. The 964/965 is more solidly built and more refined, has improved *everything*, better safety features, cleaner lines, and more HP and torque (even from the normal C2). HOWEVER, I will definitely say the simpler design of the '87 is very appealing when it comes to maintenance. My '87 has easily been the most reliable car I've ever owned... and it has a beautiful, classic look.
