Buying a 911 ?
This could be yours
or perhaps this ??
or maybe this is more your style
or maybe the classic shape does it for you
But how do I know what to buy ?????
- First, research the Internet. There is a lot of information
on the net, it's just a mater of tracking it down. You will find links on
this site to the better sites.
- Find a local Porsche mechanic, preferably running his own small business. Most are enthusists and
will be able to advise where to start, they often also have Customers cars
for sale on consignment, so you may need to look no further.
- Go along to your local Porsche Car Club meetings. Porsche
owners are dying to talk about their cars. Just prod them a bit to get them
started, but don't try to be a know all.
- Buy a couple of books. There are literately hundreds
out there, so it's a bit of a puzzle. Four that I would recommend are:
I found that Amazon had the best prices on all. t
- Peter Morgan's Original Porsche 911 - a very good
model by model description of the 911
- Bruce Anderson's 911 Performance Handbook
- Bentley's Porsche 911 SC Service Manual
- Adrian Streather's Porsche 911SC, The Essential Companion
(my '81SC is featured in the book !!)
