As suggested in another off topic thread, and i'll bet there are a fair few car nuts on here, so why not start with one of the finest; My experiences are fairly limited for example Ive never had a 911 (never wanted one either...bet that's opened a can of worms). Any how ive been fortunate to have thoroughly enjoyed 3 of the front engine, rear drive water cooled models. My first was a little 924S automatic in white back in the year 2000, in 2003 i bought a 928S2 and in 2006 a 928S4. My favorite being the 928S2 so ill start with a picture of it...

Nigel, you can put up to SIX photo's in a thread mate, no need for a separate post for each individual snap - we'll be out of bandwidth at this rate.

Also, you get 15 minutes to edit a thread and add extra text to it Instead of adding half a dozen different replies to a thread within a couple of minutes of each other.

I'm not sure if you're urgently trying to get into 4 figures for your post count, just thought I'd mention it...

I do like 928s. The early ones with pepperpot alloys and no spoilers are the best looking IMO though. :yes:

My uncle had one back in the day, but Risky Business made them seriously cool..

...OK, so who's the U-Boat Commander?

...You okay? Do you want an aspirin? Your dad own a gun?

Those 928s are beautiful cars. No wonder Porsche wanted to take their cars more in this direction - but the 911 refused to be displaced as the halo model!

I'm very lucky that my Mrs is as much into cars as much as I am - and she particularly loves her Porsches. We've been very lucky to have owned 3...

First up was a 2000MY Boxster S

Boxster%20top_zpso3lwmf4b.jpg

Next I had my favourite car from all that I've owned - and I'm so sorry I sold it for something "more practical" :-(

A 1998MY 993 Carrera S - rear drive, wide turbo body, normally aspirated air cooled sculpture on wheels. A real thing of beauty and the way it drove was simply amazing. Not easy to drive well, but so, so rewarding.

Finally, this is my Mrs current car, and has been for nearly 8 years.

Her 2002MY 996 Carrera 4S...

Thanks, man.

A grail car for me as well - and I wish I could replace her - but sadly probably never be able to afford the equivalent again :'(

Would that be the Evo in the background?

First time I've ever heard them called that :lol:

I did a daft thing and went from the 993 to a new '04 Civic Type R. Now it was a great car, a really great car, but I'd been spoiled, and the FWD chassis wasn't anywhere near as rewarding and let the package down for me. That got replaced by the Evo - WELL SPOTTED - and I've had that since late '05. Odometer is currently sitting at 90,002 miles. And, YES - the Evo IS our *practical* car. My bike even fits in the back seat with the wheels in the boot ;-)

That is a real classic an early 944 on cookie cutters, with Pasha trim and turbo valance, I think the 993 was the best 911 got away from the trouble of 964 oil leaks but kept the classic looks smoothed out a bit which i thought was perfect. I used to take my '28's to loebank motors in edenfield chris sanderson i think hes still going. As for the flat nose 911 they were the massively expensive LE versions. I thing they were all turbo's and retailed at close on 80 grand in 1985 when a standard turbo was half that. The water cooled 911's are great value but have a good read of one of the monthly mags eg porsche world first and be very careful of engine block and head problems. The block wasnt sufficiently cooled on some early versions leading to cracks in walls if not well maintained and respected

I suppose "practical" is relative anyway. I remember when I was changing my car. Originally planned to get a mondeo but then told the wife I was thinking about getting a reliable Japanese family saloon - her face was a picture when I came back with a Hawkeye Impreza :lol:

Not a Porsche, but back in the day (1975), yours truly sat in my pride and joy....the mighty TR6.....I was 21 at the time. I wish I still had it..... :sadwalk:
