>>24589596Does Porsche literally make anything that doesn't look like a 911?Can't believe people aren't yet sick of the same design being rehashed in a billion different variations every year
>>24589729That's their selling point. Maybe you are just wrong
>>24589729Best car ever made
>>24589761It's the NPC of the car-enthusiast world
>>24589770it's the midwit filter and you are the midwit
>>24589777sounds like cope
>>24589777Based trips of truth
The 911 has always been the smart man's supercar.
>>24589596Let me be poor in peace
>>24591516Buy a 996
>>24592005>$500 oil change>35k for a car with 200k miles that won’t grenade itself after a year
>>24592317Why bother with the oil if it's going to grenade itself?
>>24592321Because you bought the 35k car with 200k miles and you need to do the oil changes for it to not grenade itself
>>24589596I want a 911C4S!!!! should I do that or am 07/08 Cayman or a 09-11 Boxster? I won't be keeping the cars stock and I will do performance mods
>>24592360Just get the Cayman forget about all the NARP - posters and have yourself a track killer
>>24592360Get the '09+ then. Better engine.
>>24592533>Get the '09+ then. Better engine How do? I thought all the 997 generation porsches have solid engines…
>>24592881The DFI units have zero chance of IMS bearing trouble, because they did away with the IMS entirely.Pre-facelift 9x7s use stronger bearings than the few bad years of 9x6s, but they still have a (tiny) chance of failure and since they use a larger diameter bearing, it's actually much harder to replace.
>>24592334Before the used car market went (temporarily) insane, I was looking at 996s. $35K could get you an absolutely pristine C2. At that price point, a high mileage TT was within reach. Something with 200K miles would've gone for maybe 10K (assuming no engine rebuild). The IMS can be replaced with one that won't fail for $3K. A lot of cars already have that done. Also, the 99-01 cars have a different IMS design that supposedly is much more reliable. My understanding is it's really only the facelift cars that need it.
>911Pigfat>inb4 NARPYou will never be a real woman but I don't remind you everyday about it, tranny
If the Porsche 911 is so great why isn't a Porsche 912 after all these years?Checkmate sour krauts.
>>24593988The Gayman GTS 4.0 is more bang for your buck than any other Porsche. It is really in C8 territory.
Should i buy a base 992 or a gt4, spyder? I want it for daily driving
If you don't buy a 911 you'll always have to cope with your car isn't a 911. You'll condemn yourself to spending a life online, arguing in any forum that will listen that your not-a-911 is better than a 911 in various ways. Everyone will know that you're not really trying to convince them, you're actually trying to convince yourself.
>>24594930imagine thinking this as a bus rider, not to mention not owning a Porsche
>>24594930haha dude no.
the funnest car ive ever driven but my god are they girly as fuck
>>24594930I'll stick with the panamera.
The 992 Targa is so beautiful
>>24589596why does porsche call it the 911? because when you see one you call 911 because it's so much of an eyesore.
I had an honor to work on one
>>24589780sounds like admission of defeat
>There is an 08 997 s in my area for sale that I could theoretically afford >but it had that bore scoring issue on cylinder 6 that’s common on the 3.8 engines > a rebuild using new/reworked crankcase halves, pistons would be required So close…
>>24600293pity it has to be AWD
>>24602331>in soviet russia, car power horse
>>24602331Just put an LS in it
>>24602563I would actually love to have an LS swapped 911. But after seeing the headache hoovie went through with his LS 996 project, it doesn’t look like it’s worth the headache…
>>24604102>model is picture staring directly at the engine
>>24604102The kits have improved and they are a bit cheaper these days, and afaik his main mistake was not getting a baffled sump right?
>>24605878h-how will I get it in there
