Ever since it was introduced in late-1963 at the Frankfurt Motor Show, Porsche's 911 remains one of the longest-running and most successful sports-car models ever conceived. It is also one of the most satisfying to drive, with relentless development to near-perfect driving dynamics today. While today's 911 is a far cry from the earliest in terms of technical sophistication and luxury, it still carries the pure, unadulterated Porsche DNA infusing every generation and model of this truly remarkable sporting icon.
In today's sports car market, the Porsche 911 is a staple automobile. Lusted after when new and owned and enjoyed by die-hard aficionados, the 911 continues to draw new buyers every single day. While renowned for their reliability and durability, there are specific things that buyers need to pay heed to, in order to make their Porsche buy a good one. While I always advise potential buyers of any classic sports car to engage a competent mechanic or marque specialist for a pre-purchase inspection and as always, to either ask for or purchase a vehicle history report from Carfax or Canada's CarProof, it is also a great idea to arm oneself with as much information as possible.
To that end, I have found a line of Porsche buyer's guides that will be invaluable to many of my readers. The books cover each series from the Carrera 3.2 of 1984-1989, the 964 of 1989-1993, the 993 (last air-cooled Porsche line) of 1993-1998, the first liquid-cooled series - the 996 - of 1998-2003, and the highly popular Boxster from 1997 to 2004.
The books are available individually or in bundles as electronic downloads to your computer, with a money-back satisfaction guarantee. Unfortunately, they are for PC users only at this time. Pricing is from approximately USD $35 - I say approximately as the creator of the series is from the UK. Their reasonable purchase prices will be long forgotten considering the aggravation and expense they will potentially save you by helping you to avoid problem cars and find the 911 that is just right for you.
