Interesting, thanks for the link.  I used to have a habit of flicking through Autocar in WH Smiths or Sainsbury's, but I can't do that anymore, so I would have missed this otherwise.

Not a particularly well researched guide imo suggesting the RS rear was widened? and a C4 worth more than C2?

I guess these buying guides, even with the seemingly inevitable errors, can only help generate interest in 964s, which I guess is a good thing (as it isn't like 964s are a secret)

I think they should have emphasised the imperative to get a specialist inspection before beginning to contemplate buying any 964. Yes you can pick one up cheapish... but if you do, then expect to spend a lot getting it fixed up properly to the point that you can depend on it without worrying.
There is always talk of cabriolets and Targas having more "flexible" chassis. I'm not so convinced... the coupe roof's are very thin and provide very little extra rigidity. Cab and Targa bodies are strengthened in the factory and finally, unless you're Walther Rohrl would you ever find out anyway? I think not.
The final point is, yes they cost a lot, but there is little or no depreciation so long as it's looked after properly. Factor that in and the financial equation begins to look much better.
