Can any owners comment on the difference between 90-94 C2s? I was told to avoid the first year C2s. Something about clutch and flywheel? thanks

In my opinion, the 94 model year C2 is the most desirable, but also difficult to find as not many were made.I have a 94 C2 cabrio bought it new, have put 76K miles on it. Car has been fantastic. Some recurring problems with the AC fan relay & switch & power steering rack. Other than that its been trouble free. I change oil & filter frequently and do the inspections and service as per Porsche recommendations. Make sure you look at the history of the car and how its been maintained.

do more reading on the clutch. Most would have been replaced by this time and problem solved.

"Avoid the early ones" is very bad advice because it's far too simplistic. The advice should be: be sure that the early ones...

- have had the dual mass flywheel and clutch replaced
- have had the distributor vent installed
- don't have cylinder head leakage problems

I have a 90 c2; bought it after all those problems had been sorted out. It has been amazing; no major problems and goes through a quart of oil every 5K miles...

The one that we have in stock has not had any significant problems to the best of my knowledge. It is a 1991 C2 turbo odly enough in the rare Mint Green color. But, the car only has 18,600 miles and it just had a major service. Sorry man, I don't know what to tell you.


P.S. anyone reading this because you are a C2 buyer? You have to check out our site.
