964 v 993

Total 911 - - Views -

Dear Sir,

For­give me, but I’ve only just found your won­der­ful mag­a­zine after pick­ing up an old copy (I was drawn to the 964 v 993 Car­rera ar­ti­cle). I then went and bought the lat­est copy avail­able, is­sue 169, where the cover theme cel­e­brated 30 years of the 964.

For some time now I have con­sid­ered the prospect of buy­ing a 964 Car­rera 2. This will be my re­turn to the 911 foray after a num­ber of years away, and I’m smit­ten by its clas­sic looks, with­out the car look­ing ‘too old’. How­ever, I’m ret­i­cent to pay the cur­rent mar­ket rates for a good ex­am­ple, par­tic­u­larly as it’s com­pa­ra­bly sim­i­lar money to a 993 Car­rera 2. I ap­pre­ci­ate the 993 may be the bet­ter car, but I’m not as sold on its softer looks com­pared to the 964. What would you do? Michael J. Wadsworth

‘964 v 993’ is a peren­nial de­bate among en­thu­si­asts, Michael, and it’s one which doesn’t look like it’s be­ing set­tled any­time soon! on pa­per the 993 is the bet­ter car, and of­fers a more pol­ished drive. How­ever, the 964 re­mains idolised by en­thu­si­asts, and rightly so.

Whether it of­fers a bet­ter drive over the 993 comes largely down to per­sonal pref­er­ence, so get a drive in both to help you de­cide. You may well be in­ter­ested in our sales de­bate within the data file sec­tion of the mag­a­zine, as we’ve dis­cussed this in de­tail on page 90.
