Porsche Crest Best Porsche ever to be factory produced?

Alright, if for some reason you could have any factory produced Porsche to own, under $100,000...not to sell, what would you choose? Im interested in what people might say so post pics here. I love 951's but looks wise I think I would choose a 911 turbo slant nose....Something about the slanted hood and flared fenders grabs my attention like no other car.

I'd be content with a 993TT, but for 100k I'd go with a as new 944S2 and have 85k left. I think the daily drivability of a 944 variant far exceeds that of a 911 variant.

993TT all the way... simply the smoothest body style ever made.

Well, would a 968TRS count?

I haven't seen a 997 GT3 in person yet, and I expect that it's price will be north of $100,000. If we're in that territory, I say the very rare factory street version of the 962.

the GT3 is a shell, with an engine. Thats about it. It falls in line after the GT2 and was meant for pure balls to the walls, wheres my mommy performance.

the 944 series are great cars, but if you think they are "better"/more desirable than a 550, 904, or the best 911s through their 40+ years of production... then you got another thing comin'
