16. 993 RS THE COMPLETE GUIDE - TOTAL 911 ISSUE 95

"Amazingly, the 993 RS had a bigger brother, more refined and exclusive to own : The Clubsport edition. This variant is hardcore, weight saving measures are taken to the extreme, and an owner can wave goodbye to primitive creature comforts such as air conditioning, electric windows and even a radio"

 

 

 

15. 911 RS MODELS BUYING GUIDE - TOTAL 911 PORSCHE 911 BUYERS GUIDE

"Like many Porsches 911s before and since, the 964 RS was born from the need to go racing , in this case acting as a homologation model for the Carrera Cup series.The RS was launched at the 1991 Geneva Motor Show, and went on sale later that year as a 1992 model, with total sales reckoned to be in the region of 2.400. Production would be split between four key variants - the majority of which (just under 2.000) would be in 'Sport' or 'Touring' specification, with the remainder in 'M001' and 'M003' form-and it's worth exploring those in more detail before going any further."

 

 

14. FIRST PORSCHES FOR 10K-50K (911 and Porsche World,September 2014,Issue 246)

" The Porsche 964 arrived in 1989 and offered a more modern take on the 911's basic body shape.Engine capacity grew to a chunky 3.6 litres and torsion bar suspension was replaced with coil-springs all round.Not without its problems initially,these have all been rectified over time.This is the 'sleeper' 911 and values are set to rise."

12. Damage Imitation. (TOTAL 911) by Philip Raby

" I am amazed at the number of people who buy a Porsche on eBay without seeing it beforehand.And even those who do inspect the car before buying inevitably underestimate what the thing will cost to repair.There are always hidden costs when you start stripping a car down to fix it.Unless you can do much of the work yourself and have access to cheap parts,its often not worth doing."

11.PORSCHE 964 OWNERS GUIDE (911 AND PORSCHE WORLD)

 

"There are simpler 911s. There are plenty of certainly quicker and arguably better-handling 911s.There are cheaper 911s.

There are more practical 911s. And there are ,depending upon your point of view,probably better - looking 911s.

But there are precious few 911s,if any, that so effectively combine these desirable qualities in one compact , usable,

affordable, stylish , efficient,characterful and above all enjoyable package as the 964."

9. THE COMPLETE GUIDE 964 CARRERA - TOTAL 911

 

"Once you do find a good 964,though, you will have a great 911 that will make you grin from ear to ear every time you drive it. "

"Indeed,Porsche claimed that the 964 was no less than 8 per cent new when compared to the previous Carrera 3.2."

"The engine was based on the previous 3.2 litre unit,but was considerably modified.The capacity was increased to 3.6 litres by altering the bore and stroke

and fitting new pistons. Maximum power rose from 231 bhp to 250 bhp."

"The lure of a classic Porsche can be too strong to resist and while buying one can be an expensive exercise,tread carefully and there is no reason why

you can not buy yourself a real peach of a Porsche. "

5. The complete guide - 911 sc TOTAL 911

"The 911 sc of the late-seventies and early-Eighties remains a great but sometimes underrated 911."

"When the 911 sc appeared in 1978, it was a breath of fresh air for Porsche enthusiasts."

"It remains eminetly affordable , next it has a tough,willing 3.0 litre engine that just keeps going but,

most importanly,its a hell of a lot of fun to drive.More fun,bizarelly, than the more powerful Carrera 3.2 that succeeded it."

 

 

 

 

 

 

4.CARRERA 3.2 OWNERS GUIDE (911 AND PORSCHE WORLD ,JUNE 2008)

 

"The 3.2 may not be the most charismatic of Porsche's flat sixes,but it is one of the toughest and most reliable.

Given regular maintenance the cylinder heads and valvegear will generally pass 100.000 miles without needing

significant attention , and the entire bottom end should be good for well over double that figure."

 

"It is beyond doubt a supercar , but the carrera 3.2 is little or no more difficult to live with and look after than a

contemporary VW Golf GTI."

 

 

 

3. The complete guide - 3.2 Carrera. TOTAL 911

"The 3.2 Carrera was the last 911 to boast the classic appeal that could be traced back to 1963-

and today it remains one of the easiest 911s to own."

"It came as a surprise when Porsche badged its standard 911 as Carrera."

"This car replaced the 911 sc and was , in many ways, very similar to its predecessor, as it was developed on a very 

small budget.The only big change was in the engine compartment,the SC's sturby 2994cc flat six was replaced

by a 3164cc unit,codenamed type 930/20, which Porsche , in its inimitable way, claimed was 80 per cent new."

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2. PORSCHE 912 THE COMPLETE GUIDE (TOTAL 911)

 

"Dismissed by some as not a true 911,the 912 offered 911 looks at an affordable price - and imroved handling - and today 

remains a fun alternative to a classic 911."

" Although a total of 34.959 of all types were built,many have succumbed to the ravages of rust,which the early 911 bodyshell

was particularly susceptible to. And of the surviving cars, more than a few have been "upgrated" with more powerful flat six

911 engine , an obvious thing to do in some ways, but it does spoil a rare Porsche."
