Looking for a 965 driver.

Hi All,

I am looking for 965 as a daily driver. Could be stock or lightly modified. Nothing extreme though as this will car will have to pass smog. Will a need heat and AC.

Since it's a daily driver, it doesn't have to be cosmetically perfect. Mechanical soundness is a must. No garage queen or concourse queen with sky high prices please.

Anything has anything I can look at?

thanks,
anthony

930s are more fun to drive than 964 turbos.

Yes, but the 965 is the superior daily driver because of it's advanced climate controls.

+1.... Love my 930, but the 964/5 based cars are far superior with suspension, transmission, interior, shift mechanism, braking (addition of ABS), and a few other things. Electrical system is improved as well (no pin to pin connections...). Only drawback is the 965 is heavier by a bit.
Its kind of the difference between a 70' 454 chevelle SS and a new Z06- close in speed but the vette is much more comfortable.

I had a 80 930 and a 91 C2 Turbo at the same time. I had the 930 first then the C2T. Both were fun but the C2T was more fun and more user friendly. If you can afford the C2T, get it. You won't regret it. Just be aware that any part that begins with "965" in the part number as opposed to the same part that begins with "964", it will be about 5 times the price as the similar 964 parts. You would be amazed at how many unique parts are on 91-92 C2 Turbos. Don't buy a wreck that needs to be rebuilt either. Some parts are NLA and the ones that aren't NLA are TDE (Too Damned Expensive).

The 964 has ABS and airbags. Need em for daily driving.

Looking for something at $30K. I prefer a higher mileage car with engine rebuild. So I don't feel bad driving it everyday.

Can you give some examples that are NLA and/or TDE? If there are too many NLA or TDE, then maybe I should reconsider....like a 996TT.

It has been a while since I have owned either one of those cars. If I remember correctly, the ignition modules on the C2T might cause you to have a stroke. Plastic body parts on the C2T are getting hard to find. Seriously though, what I said about the part number thing is true: 965=964 x 5 Just know that before buying one.

Just an FYI: I know of a 996tt w/ 50k on it that was just purchased for $35K and a GT3 in the mid$40k region. These are the only H20 996 I would consider. (Well, maybe a GT2)
I would not buy a standard 996. Unfortunately, Porsche decided to make those cars disposable. Poor quality compared to the aircooled stuff. IMO.

BTW not trying to scare you away from a C2T. They are great and I would buy another one in a minute if I was in the market.

There were quite a few 964 turbos for sale here and on RL in your range, but I think they sold. The 964 may have superior climate controls over the 930, but I don't know if it is sufficient for Texas summers. The 996 had a very good climate control system, but the na ones are so-so. For a little more, you could get a 996 turbo. I've seen some sold in the mid 30s.

The 964 turbos for 30k are ones that someone needs to turn for money problems or have major issues. A 964 t from 91-92 are worth between low 30s to high 30 with mid to high milage just for the low production # alone. The 3.6 ones, late 93-94 should bring a few k more. (IMO) . There was a nice modded one for sale here a couple wks. back 91 I believe for I think 32k or something that was a steal . Those are rare even in todays bad economy. Good luck in your search and if that is what you want don't give up to you find one you can afford as you won't be sorry.

Hmmm....maybe I need a collective input on this. Is that a $30K car actually need $$ (several more $K) to make it a reliable driver? This assumes a PPI is done and the problem is known.

What have been your buying experience?

thanks,
anthony

A $30k 964 turbo can be a good driver. However, you need to remember with those higher miles, you will need to have a budget to replace old/worn parts and possibly be ready for a rebuild. I'm not sure how the car was driven over those higher miles, but I don't think it was babied.

A low mileage car is nice to have, but then you don't want to pile on the miles. That is why my 91 turbo with 20k just sites in the garage. Sad, but true.

A $30k 965 won't be very nice, IMO.

I don't think I would buy a porsche from a auto dismanteler and expect to get what it was repersented as. How come it has had about 600 mi. put on it since 2006 and a salvage yard has it? Come on.
