Looking to Purchase 1982-86 911


Vehicle Information: Year: 1982; Body Type: Coupe;

I'm looking to purchase my first 911. I have read your article on purchasing a "hobby car" and found it very useful. From my research so far, I've been looking at 82-83SCs and 84-86 911s.My question, though vague, is there certain specifics for the years listed above that I need to note when looking to purchase my first Porsche? Such as, previous replacement of chain tensioners, coupes vs. targa's vs. convertibles, etc.Are there better years than others? For example, the 86 911 engines perform better and are more reliable then the 83SC.My intention for this new purchase will be something that I can work on over time with the goal of a full restoration to original at a later date.Any input or direction (previous articles) would be greatly appreciated.Thanks
