This car is a dream. After owning an 87 944 n/a and losing it in an accident, I was carless (Porsche anyways) for two years. After passing up older, and slower 911ís, I realized that buying anything else just wouldnít suffice. I bought it in Arizona and drove it back home to Salt Lake City. It was extremely fun on the straight, vacant roads that wonder through the desert. I had it up to 153 mph on the ride home but ran out of room. Iím confident that sheíll hit 165 without a problem.

†† At first, I didnít want to own a red car, and the pictures I received from the buyer via email were awful. However, when I saw the car in person, I fell in love right there. Itís such a unique color. It looks different in every type of light. Velvet red in the shade (just like a velvet rope in the old movie theaters), to maroon in the bright sunlight, to plum as the sun sets. No tow time when I look at it is the color the same. I love it.

I have been a PCA member for four years here in Salt Lake City. Check us out vista.pca.org/int. It has been wonderful finding the Rennlist community. Everyone is so passionate about the cars they drive. For many Iíd say their cars are family members. The forums are a godsend. I can have the answer to just about any question I might have at the click of a button. It really ends up saving us all a lot of $ in repairs.
