Porsche says you can use 90-93 in a 986

Page 174 owner's Manual. 93 preferred.

The lower you go the less power and mileage. But in normal driving, 91 isn't going to hurt...91 is the best I can find around NC (and their mid-grade is 89, not on the survey). In my wife's Acura, I alternate 91 and 89. In the P-car, since it sees so few miles, I do stick with 91 so far but I wouldn't hesitate to mix in a little 89 on a flat ground long trip.
