If your going into Porsche turbo ownership with little or no knowledge of these cars (Porsche) you should buy a WRX. Most people not even associated with Porsche, but who have a reasonably sound knowledge of cars, know what a widebody is.
WRX , I hope your kidding. I have nothing against WRX, but why whould I be talking 911 turbo and WRX comes in play.I am in for porsche because of every thing Porsche is. I would rather if they were easier to work on, as many people here hint that it is not. but I am sure it would not be a problem for me. I worked on saabs for a few years which are a threat to most mechanics, they do not want to touch them. I'm almost sure if you can work on a saab you can do a classic porsche no problem. with just a little bit of web search you can almost do any thing.
I would not buy a WRX unless I was looking for a 4 wheel drive family car. I have now a saab 900 turbo that I owned for 9 years. that car by now smokes most wrx and shakes a lot of Porsches. I want a porsche because I want a porsche. Oh turbo is a must as you may already know. I will be looking at two 930 slant noses in my area today. I'm hoping to test drive one of them and get a feel of what a classic 930 is. I'm hoping it will blow my mind but Iwill report later. I am looking for a 190 -200 mph porsche but i am not sure which classic porsche beside the RUF had that option.
