1989 Porsche 911 Turbo
Hundreds of thousands of pages have been written on the 911 Turbo. The propensity of lift-throttle oversteer, Spartan amenities, quirks like floor-hinged pedals — it's this combination of features and Porsche's commitment to the platform that have made the 911 a legend. So let's take a moment to skip over styling, engines, and handling to praise something often overlooked — the G50 5-speed transmission. This 1989 911 Turbo is immaculate and heavily optioned, with power windows, seats, air conditioning, and sunroof delete. But there, right between the beige leather seats, is the G50. Extremely accurate with a wonderfully short throw, the joy of heel-and-toeing will have you facing the wrong way on your favorite canyon road in short order.
