Fun And Exciting To Drive — This is a very nice driving car. It's solid and quite. Is very good handling car. There unique and a little more rare. They where built for the older generation for touring Germany. Having the books and service records is important for these cars for they need regular maintenance like most high line cars. It's a car that definitely gets noticed.

Fun To Drive — Wasn't anything I dislike. This car is solid quite ride. It's fun to drive and turns heads every where you go. It's a little more rare because of the 5 speed trany. It corners great and is comfortable on long trips.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Great Car If You Want A Car To Work On, Avoid If You Just Want To Get From Point A To Point B — the car looks amazing interior and exterior, it has the infamous Porsche build quality but the car produces less horsepower then you would expect form a V8 only producing 220 horsepower for the american models and 240 for the European models.

Affordable Supercar — Great car, Built with both luxury and performance this german supercar was originally built to replace the Porsche 911. Runs great mechanically, but like all Porsche's needs some help with electrical issues.

Great Car — I love the power and handling of this vehicle. It is impressive just sitting there. It just begs you to drive it. I don't like backing the car up. Its hard to see out the back window. On the upside I rarely back up!
