The Best Porsche model

I think it's the PORSHE CARRERA 4S! The car is just great.

Although the Porsche 911 Carrera 4S is an amazing and superior car to all other cars (as are all Porsches,) I must disagree with you about it being the best Porsche. If you didn't know...Because of the added weight of the four wheel drive system, and other goodies, the 911 Carrera 4S is the SLOWEST 911 in Porsche's current lineup!

I happen to think the C4S is amazing, but it is really just a Turbo - the engine, still an amazing car thogh. I'd have to say in the current lineup, the Turbo would still take honors.

Too hardcore race, I want a practical car, the AWD is a nice feature to. The GT2 is awesome but if I ever had one, I'd make it a race only model, the Turbo is quite sufficient for driving normally.

I see how quickly you all turn your backs on the 959. I like the 968 Turbo S the most. Actually, I like factory M030 968's, with a proper aftermarker turbocharging job, so you keep the VVT and 16V head.

Factory 968 Turbo S
305 bhp/6000 rpm,
369 ftlbs/3000? rpm,
6 Speed/LSD
M030 suspension
911 Turbo S wheels + brakes
2850 lbs, 50/50 distribution

My favorite of the current models is the Boxster S. It has the best handling, and really has as much power as one can safely use on public roads (in the US anyway). If that isn't enough power than the RuF Boxster is the way to go... My favorite all time is the 914-6, because of excellent handling, targa top, awesome sound of a aircooled 6 inches behind your back, and the go-kart feel of being inches off the ground and having no body roll. Because the engine is neither in the front or back both suspensions have "firewalls" that brace the two sides of the car virtually eliminating any chassis flex. Perhaps I am just partial to mid-engined cars

'74 914 turbo project, '79 BMW 733i, '87 volvo 740Ti, ....
