    I have an M5, and love the Porsche 993. There's a C4S at the dealer...beautiful. Fikse wheels. Blue on black. I thought it was a Turbo, but I talked to the dealer and he said its a C4S.

    THey are asking 56k and it has 15,XXX miles. It's a 1997. I want a Turbo, but I think i'll just wait until I can get a 996tt...shit, i dunno

    I could trade in and even get a couple thousand dolalrs

    what u guys think?

    pics coming soon

    If the 993 is practical for you, I'd go for it!

    Yeah, the 4 doors in the M5 don't serve a purpose for me really...

    I don't need a sedan

    well, even though porsches are fuckin reliable, its still a 6 year old car. id rather invest a couple of grand more and get a 2000/01 model.

    Werd.. I'd keep the m5 if it's a daily driver. It's practical, handles well, and pretty fast for what it is.

    The 993 C4S is a beautiful car, but I would hold off and wait for a 996tt. The M5 won't be such a bad car to wait with. I would love to be in your situation...

    a C4S would dominate an M5 on nearly any track...

    993s are more exciting than 996s even Turbo's

    Porsches are not expensive to run compared to other premium german cars, less than Mercedes for the most part. Especially 996s.
