Great Car For Fun Driving Especially In The Mountains. — Love driving the car, sometimes forget how powerful it is until I get a chance to find some open road. Get compliments on the car every I go in it. Great car with a wonderful sound system in it with 13 speakers, sounds like your in the middle of the band. I have not done any track days in it but I bet it would be a lot of fun to do!!

Pros

The performance and handling is unmatched. It's a great looking car and never disappoints when you get behind the wheel.  The ultimate driving experience. Although maintenance costs are higher than normal, they are relatively simple and when followed will give you years of satisfaction.

Cons

The car loves to fly so keep a tab on the speedometer.

Breathtaking! — If you're looking to fully enjoy the experience of driving, you couldn't pick a better car to do it in. The only way to adequately understand it's performance is to drive one. Once driven you will be hooked for a lifetime!

Raw, direct, explosive performance.

Cons

For what I call a "simple car", Porsche should have made it more affordable.

Porsche Is Everything You Can Ask For In An Old School Sport/race Car! — Waited 25 years for this, it better be good. It is refreshing to find Porsche has stayed away from all the unnecessary sophistications - ie. you don't have to remove 10 things everytime you wanted 1 thing changed. It also doesn't employ rubber bushings to excess, so the driving feel is very direct and informative. The definitely superior chassis stiffness is very noticeable and works in harmony with the suspension. Saving the best for last, the engine, despite being old school (ie. an evulotion from the GT1 engine from the '80s, still has no direct injection, individual intake throttles, etc.), still deliver all its 450 hp in such explosive manner such that you will forgive the slower throttle response (vs. modern BMW) or smoothness, after all, it is more like a race engine with true dry-sump design, and a oil-cooled block (but water-cooled heads)! One more thing worth mentioning: the hand painted body work is just flawless, and the material used in the interior (ie. full grain leather, wool matts/carpets, etc.), despite lacking in precision in how they are put together, are of top quality somewhat deserving of the car's high ticket price.

Outstanding Car That Can Reach 189mph Safely !!!!!!! — How can you not like a Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet, if you a car person. Like an artist not liking Picasso. Wow what a car !!!!!! Awesome, a v6 that can produce 189mph & the best part is you feel very safe .

Pros

Performance from the front to the back and from the bottom to the top,  The acceleration is amazing and smooth in all gears in this fabulous 5spd Tiptronic equiped Turbo S Cab

Cons

Golf anyone?  Oh wait I'll have to put them in the passengers seat or keep them at the club house.

Sophisticated, Smooth & Speedy — Not much to dislike, except maybe the Navigation input, somewhat tricky at first but once you do it, it's a cake walk. The exceptional pro to this vehicle is the Manual to Auto mode with the 5 spd Tiptronic transmission - fun down shifting to hear the revs and even funner up shifting to hear the wind racing by you.

Once In A Lifetime Buy — One of the most desirable cars on the planet, powerful, poised and engineered like a meschersmidt. A daily driver super car that exceeds expectations at so many levels it sounds trite...really, what virtue hasn't been extold of this legendary car? Instead, let's talk about the real cost of ownership...owning a boxster, 911 or other Porsche product is a step across a line that is difficult to withdraw from...can you ever be happy with a mustang or camaro again? This personal shift in paradigm is only exacerbated by the 911 turbo. Yes, that's right....the real cost of ownership isn't the price or the maintenance; it's the cost of replacing it! So if it is within your means, buy one because even if you own it for a few months or a few years...the experience is truly worthy of a bucket list entry.

Approx 400 hp and the hollow bark of that flat-6

Cons

err.....none

Flat-6 — 0-100mph in under 9 seconds, 191mph, track prepared with roll cage and fully adjustable suspension. No electronic aids and a bit of a handful in the wet! Engine derived from the GT1 le-mans car, 381hp and a lovely soundtrack

Porsche — it's fast and has a great color. The motor is greatc and it has hydrolics that can come off. It has place for two people so it is light and not heavy so it can go faster.IT has a huge trunk to put things that you buy. It has black windows so noone can see you inside
