The Best Sports Car of all time?

Discussion in '1987 Porsche 911 Turbo 3.3 Cabriolet' started by gempto, Aug 10, 2002.

  1. Just a bit of a survey here. I am of the opinion that the 911 and its variations constitue the best sports/supercar ever in motoring history.
    Just after people's opinions on this topic, whether you think it is and why or not and why.
    Cheers.

    I think that the 911 is one of the greatest sports car out there. For a car that started production in 64, and little has changed over the years. The engine, the shape, the rear engine design it was great then and it's still great today. I guess it has to be, if people still buy these cars. You see most magazines when a new sports car comes out, and they almost always try to compary the car to the 911. But having said that. There are some cars that are just as old too. Like the Mustang, and Camaro, the Corvette, to name some. But these cars don't have 16 Le Mans wins behined them. The Japanese cars almost always seem to me to make cars like the 911. The NSX is one of them. It is a Mid engine, rear drive car. They are both normaly asp. cars. Both handle well and both are great sports cars. A point to this is when Porsche came out with the 944, all the Japanese cars looked like it. The RX-7, and the Supra. I can't wait to buy a 911, ever if I have to work my but off for it; it will be all the more sweet.

    I think the 911 is very very nice, but best sports car ever is pushing it little too far

    Best sports car of all time pushing it? I hope you are joking my friend. Name ONE other SPORTS car that has existed as long as the 911 (and not just in name - the 911 concept has NEVER changed, not even the shape).

    Mustang's and Corvette's are not sports cars, they are Muscle Cars.
    Whacking a V8 up front, archaic supension out back in a coupe bodyshell does not a sports car make.<!-- Signature -->

    I don't if it is the best car of all times, but it is the best German of all times.<!-- Signature -->
     
  11. Re: The Best Sports Car of all time?

    Yeah, i think that saying it is the best sports car is pushing it too...maybe the oldest design, but i can name alot more sports cars that are BETTER

    The beat sports Cars of all time on the street

    I am only talking about sports car,not super sports car like
    360 ,911 turbo f40 etc

    Porsche 996 Carrera,easy and fun to drive,it's the best car to be driven on the street ,the best way to leave the rush hour behind.
    It's light,powerful,elegant and agile.Some of the sports
    car may be faster like the Nsx type S or R or Skyline Gtr,but none is as easy and safe to drive fast as a Carrera on the street.
    The ride is comfortable,but the handling is very assuring ,impacable engineering.

     
  15. Re: The Best Sports Car of all time?

    Jaguar XK, is by far the best of ALL time.
    from the xke to the xk8 to the now xkr..
    long history of being classy, and fast.
    with the exception of a short hiatus with the xjs, though this consider part of the xk series for some but not I...
    the xk right now serves as one of the best bodies in GTS racing.
    with the history of an E-Type....
    it does claim the best of all time....
     
  16. Re: The Best Sports Car of all time?

    best supercar of all

    FERRARI F40

     
  17. Re: The Best Sports Car of all time?

    You know, I sat here trying to think of a good comparable car for an argument, but I think I'm just going to have to agree on this one.

    it is to me<A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/PnutSpecial.gif"></A>
     
  19. Re: The Best Sports Car of all time?

    its all a matter of what one considers "the best"
    personally it is my favorite
    im not saying its the fastest,most expensive,best handling...etc.
    but to ME it is "the best"
     
  20. Re: The Best Sports Car of all time?

    Hmm...not quite, IMO...but to be fair, I'm grossly biased <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>
     
  21. Re: The Best Sports Car of all time?

    i agree with flat 6 power. How many people here can say that they could own a f50, not many. A porsche a little more real.And i dont think those who could own an f50 would drive it everyday, you can with the 911. Drive it everyday enjoy it everyday. I have a 1988 911 turbo that i drive it hard everyday.I think its the best sports car because its 15 years old and hasnt let me down yet.
     
  22. Re: The Best Sports Car of all time?

    historically, the 911 series is by far the best ever made. the idea has never changed, a rear engined car that is between the class of supercar and sports car, while still being built like nails. someone brought up the jag xk, but the jags also had (their fixing this now) a absolutely horrid history of haveing 0 quality. 1 for the road 1 for the shop. also, the 911 racing history is amazing, just lately, notice the GT class of lemans. 24 hours at daytona- top 13 places of GT class were all 911 gt3-Rs. oh yeah they finished 1st overall too. thats over the DP class, the GTS class, EVERYTHING. porshce has never lost the idea of the 911.
    as for today, the 911 series is still quite possibly the best in the world. you have the mid ranged carrera, with a awd, targa, and converitble versions availible, a more race inspired one in the GT3 which can handle most cars on a track with little problem, a very low priced supercar in the form of the turbo (best car in the world according to Car magazine), and the full blown supercar in the gt2 that can handle any car out there includeing the murciealgo, 575, 360, and just about anything else. i would like to see a gt2/c12s test, to see how that goes, but i wanna see the verdict.

    sorry, but no other model lineup of cars can even come close to the 911 from what i can see, now or historically.
    if you bring up mustangs someone is going to die. the mags sed the first ones blew, the current ones blow, and they have yet to learn to do something called turn.
     
  23. Re: The Best Sports Car of all time?

    Actually i really am not too fond of this car! it nice great speed and nice sounding engine but the body design is wut i dont like about it i always hated it it just look like a typical sport car i need to b more unique i mean its a good car it just needs a new design!!
     
  24. Re: The Best Sports Car of all time?

    one of the most popular definitly..in the comp. with the ferraris and lambos.
     
  25. Re: The Best Sports Car of all time?

    but ferrari hasnt kept hte same model goin for 40 years. also, remember technically 911 runs from the base 911 all the way to gt2.
