Default 964 Widebody C4 or 993 C2S for same money?

Essentially the same price (actually they are $10K apart but you could probably find a C2S for $60K):

1994 Carrera 4 Widebody at Holts:
http://www.holtmotorsports.com/inven...de-Body/420174

-rare (good for values)
-love the looks
-AWD ads maintenance implications...and I hate implications;-)

1998 Carrera S:
http://tinyurl.com/bond6n9


-love the looks and is widely considered the best looking 911 (good for values)
-a bit cheaper to maintain

A week ago I was sure about the 964 (I've already owned two) but now...

$58k for a 993 tip is high plus I cannot find anyone who has bought from the dealer...De Laveaga Motors. I would be wary of buying an older Porsche from them. You might ask for a Reenfax here and on the 993 board...there are some locals on the 993 board.

Holt has a good rep...and is also known for being expensive.

Either model is great...I have a 993 for my reasons but there are a lot of 964s, 930s etc that would be great to own.

lol, $14k for a manual transmission is alot of $$.

$72k (manual C2S price) less $58k (tip C2S price) = $14k


Regardless, I don't think any of those cars are worth it, at least to me they're not.

It would have been awesome had there been a factory 964 C2 widebody (like a more docile 3.8RS). I'd rather build a widebody 964 C2 than buy a factory C4 widebody. I'm sure the created car would cost less to create than the purchase price of that C4.

The widebody 4 for me every time!!! I think it looks amazing.

Like 993's too and used to prefer them to 964s but now my attitudes have changed and I prefer the more traditional look of the 4s...

I had a C2S and it was a sexy looking car - that butt was just awesome! Still, these days I'd take the widebody 964 - but maybe that's the influence of Moacur's photography!!

I've owned a 964 C4 wide body; I own a 993 C2S. Most will agree the C2S is a "better" car; ie. more refined and more collectible in the long run. 964's have had their price appreciation in the past few years (especially the MY's 92-94); the 993's are now going through this pricing appreciation. I actually prefer the look of the 964 wide body, as to me it represents the quintessential 911 look however I much prefer the way the 993 drives.

Doesn't the 993 C2S get the benefit of turbo brakes and suspension where as the 964 wide body does not?

No. 993 C4S gets the big reds from the turbo.

Tough call. As much as I LOVE the 964 C4 Widebody cars, I would still choose a 993 C2S!!!
