      I have to be honest - While I’d love a ‘85 grey market 930, I’d take any 911 between 80-95.

      If you can’t have fun in a base Carrera aircooled car you’re doing something wrong.

      Sure it won’t glue you to the back of the seat, but there’s a lot more to a car than that.

      After missing out on two in my life I’d be ecstatic to have a 912.

      Hell, I’d be happy to have a tattered 912E with a wheezy on-its-last-legs Beetle engine in it!

      It’s crazy. But I think any version should be pretty fun. The right 993 at a fair price would be hard to ignore.

      If I could have any one car at any price for the rest of my life it would be this. 964 is the top choice for me as well even in real life, with my own money, just not in RS form.
      98 m3, Technoviolet/anthrazit cloth, 112k and officially worthless.
      2000 323i touring, Titanium silver/grey, 160k and officially boring

      Money no object would be a CTR2. Otherwise I’d be more than happy with a 993 Targa.

      Cost no object, 993 RS 3.8. Second choice 993 GT.

      More realistic choice, 911 Carrera '84-89. Very classic car but EFI and some other modern amenities.

      I sent RUF a request for price on upgrading my 964 C4 a little while ago. Needless to say, I'm saving my pennies!
      Price no object, I'd have an RTC Evo.

      For now I'm very happy with this girl.

      Wow, if this had black Fuchs instead of silver it would be perfect

      The 901 was made of glass, which the 915 cured. As the power went up it became inadequate, so the G50 was put into production. From that perspective it's tough as nails!

      Everyone says get a G50 car because the transmission is more reliable. As someone who is committed to one day owning an '84 which means 915 I gotta ask, couldn't you just swap in a G50 if you really wanted?

      $$$

      The bellhousing of the G50 needs to be shortened and you need to reshape the torsion bar tube as well.

      But the better question is why?

      G50s are an extra 100lbs. For the price of the conversion you could probably have 2 915s

      They can be made to shift very well, keep in mind people use them with 3.6 swaps!

      Yeah, from what I've read a 915 wouldn't scare me at all.

      Part of me would rather have the 901 to get the dogleg shift pattern, though!

      Yeah but then you have to shift it.

      964's are the sweet spot for me. Easier to drive quickly than a G body, more fun to drive than a 993.

      964 Carrera 2: the plain-jane, bog standard version will do me just fine. Manual obviously. Pretty much driving nirvana IMHO: new enough to be convenient and comfortable (I'm a man of simple tastes) while still being old enough for a worthy tactile and sensory experience.
