If you didn't hear back within a couple of days with your note than it probably won't happen anytime soon. But don't lose heart, it might happen. I once had a guy answer a letter, 7 years after I...

How he treated people, in the past tense, Beck has been banned on Early S.

There was once a time when buying salvage cars was profitable. But several factors in the last 20-25 years have made it increasingly harder to make money doing this.

Most German car companies tend to get farther and farther out there in terms of spending and then get reigned back in. Remember the 88 Jetta GLI compared to the 91 Jetta GLI, night and day. So the...

I don't hate the 996, it's just not as riveting as a 993. The good news is they have become very affordable so if you can't afford a 993, it's still a lot of car. Personally I would rather have a...

I actually like the way the 996 looks on the outside, I can get behind that. I'm just reporting what the guys at Porsche say around the water cooler.

A friend of mine works at Porsche and he said the joke at Porsche is that the 996 is the car the accountants built. One look at the interior and I can believe it.

I think this is more the 996 in it's "natural habitat", which is what we are talking about. The car you have pictured probably has $50,000 in mods, how does that have any bearing on what we are...

This reminds me of a car I had in high school, a 88 Toyota Celica. I put Fittipaldi wheels on it, lowered it with springs, changed out the exhaust, put Recaro seats in it, MOMO steering wheel and...

Yeah, but we aren't talking GT3's or heavily modded cars, we are talking the stock 996 that everyone stares at now and says, "Man, $20,000 gets me a lot of 911!"
And I'm comparing it to a stock 993....

I think the 996 is probably a lot of car, but I don't think you can compare them to the performance and handling of late generation air-cooled 911. It's like when I lived in Athens, GA years ago. ...

I've driven lots of Porsches, and own several, the 996 was underwhelming. It reminded of me of driving my dad's Mistubishi 3000 back in the day, you could hear the engine roar, you could watch the...
