Fast And Responsive — Exterior design with rounded fenders is more attractive and aerodynamic than predecessors and in a way it resembles more the old beloved 356 than the earlier angular 911's. Plastic bumpers are a reality for all new vehicle so I can't complain even if I dislike them. Interior details are a bit lacking especially in the center console and door panels, which scratch easily if not very careful. "Magic Mender" does the trick though. This Carrera is the best Porsche I have ever owned, it is quick, agile and and feels completely safe on any surface. Gone is the extreme over-steer and the front end lift under acceleration, and at 0-60 in 5 seconds the 996 it is nothing to sneer at. This series has been vilified by so called "purists", accused of wide spread engine failures, and other terrible mechanical and aesthetic defects, etc. However, when one takes into account that more than 175,000 996's were built and only about 2,000 have had major reported problems, it does not seem that bad, does it? In fact, I do not remember any Porsche series that did not suffer some endemic mechanical failure. Like in every high performance sports cars ever built, meticulous maintenance and the avoidance of abuse is the key.to a long and enjoyable trouble free life, and what's most important: IT IS AFFORDABLE! If like me you are lucky enough to own one, just "turn the key and start the heart".

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

The Most Fun You Can Have With Your Clothes On. — I could ramble on for days about why this car is brilliant... but the fact of the matter is you will never settle for a conventional car again.

Clutch! — I loved everything about it... all about the ride. It really gives you a unique experience to ride one the most coveted brands of all time. It's in the handle, it's the emotional connection you get when your cruising around!

Pros

Great car!  I would highly recommend that everyone at some point in the life own a Porsche.

Cons

You are always worried that someone will scratch or bump into your car.  You are treated differently, when you own a car like this.

Great Car! — I would highly recommend this car to anyone who has always wanted to own a sports car. It is fast, stylish, sleek and powerful. I have very few complaints. Having a convertible is like driving two different cars, one nicer than the other.

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

Fun Summer Car — This is a great second car. Kids fit in the back seats with a carseat and a booster seat. They'll probably fit comfortaly until they are 12 years old or so. For being a performance car, the maintenance is very reasonable. In fact, it is not different from most other cars.

Parking lots!

Porsche Review — 3 Questions asked by total strangers and friends alike: How much did it cost? How fast does it go? And Can I drive it? Drag raced a Ferrari once. Got beat but it was a blast. Loved drving it - but hated parking lots and rocks.

Quicker Than The Wind — Everything's just fine. Can't wait to drive it on week-ends. Very reliable (even if small electrical problems). Don't park it in the streets (at least not in Paris...), and look carefully at the speedmeter when on the highway ! Quite fuel-consuming in traffic-jams, but not so much at maximum legal speed. 100% happy.

996 C2 3.4 — A good balanced Sport Car. You can use it everyday,it has an unbreakable Stroke. It can be used in circuits too, with an accurate perfomance. Its not the faster I have proved, but its a good option if you are looking for a Sport Car with a good look, fun to drive, well build, and a reasonable cost.

This One Is A Beauty! — This car is flawless. It's handling and looks are second to none. If I had a complaint it would be that the computer fixes misztakes when you drive and so I rpefer to drive my 1989 e30 M3, but this car outperforms the M3 any day
