911 Porsche World - - Buyers’ Guide -

‘The 911’s sus­pen­sion is in the­ory a far from per­fect set-up for a su­per­fast car but it’s been honed to cope with the engine’s ever in­creas­ing power. Over the years Porsche have greatly re­fined the once fierce chas­sis. Cou­pled with huge tyres, you have to be cor­ner­ing very rapidly in­deed to un­stick the rear end – more nor­mally you will ex­pe­ri­ence only un­der­steer.’ Fast Lane, Turbo Look 911 Car­rera 3.2 Sport Equip­ment road test, Oc­to­ber 1986

‘Porsche mod­i­fi­ca­tions have pro­duced ben­e­fits. At long last there’s cen­tral lock­ing, and the elec­tri­cally ad­justable seats give seem­ingly more head­room – a def­i­nite ad­van­tage for our six-foot plus driver. On the de-merit side, the mod­i­fied heat­ing sys­tem still fails to demist the car for the first eight miles.’ What Car?, Porsche 911 Car­rera 3.2 long term test, Novem­ber 1986
