The 968 was killer. I loved the way it handled, except the Koni's were set on stiff, so it was very rough and felt like it never actually had contact with the road until i got on smooth pavement. The engine had good power and a lot of torque. The car had 18k miles and it was like brand new, but one thing i noticed is when i drove it hard for extended periods of time, it would run a little warm, even though it was watercooled. Maintence wise, i had nothing to do to it. It felt like it didnt need any modifications, then again, i was only 17 when i had the car, so i never got to push it to its limits, but acceleration it was quite impressive. But when it comes down to it, i honestly think that the m3 would make a better track car because its a lot easier to drive and it also seems to be a bit quicker and easier to modify. Also the parts are cheaper.
