porsche)

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!

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.

If I Can't Find A 90's 928 "s" Model A Caymen Gt Would Work For Me. By Tipo_13

On the street this is a faster, better handler than a 911. on the track with a race driver the 911 has the edge. Why? The rear engine of a 911 means that if you lift off the throttle in a curve your b... Read More
