    Leffingwell's 911 Buyer's Guide

    Leffingwell's 911 Buyer's guide serves to reduce the anxiety for those wishing to buy their first Porsche. Porsche culture can be intimidating for the first timer. Considering the price of these cars and the cost of repair, there is a lot at stake. Leffingwell provides information that is critical in evaluating different year cars and features.

    For those us who plan to service and repair our own cars, the guide does not provide sufficient insight. But maybe no one works on their own sports cars anymore.
