Which to buy: 911 -vs- 964

Car Purchase

Vehicle Information: Year: all; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: sure;

I'm in the process of searching for my next Porsche as I recently sold my 944. My budget seems to fall in the realm of an '86 - '89 911 and/or a '90 - '91 964. I've heard a lot of great things about the 84 - 89 911's; however, I've heard from many different people (club members, mechanics, etc.) that the type 964 is very problematic. Can you shed any light on these claims? If the type 964 is problematic, what are the common areas of failure? Was it all 964's, or just the early years? Is the C4 964 more or less problematic than the C2? Is the 84-89 911 "bulletproof" as they say? Thanks for your insight.
