A Complete Thrill To Drive — This is my 5th Porsche and each one keeps getting better. My first Porsche was a 1986 944 Turbo in Guards Red that I owned when I was 21. I had no idea what I was getting myself into, but like most Porsche owners I am hooked and sold completely on the car and the brand

Wonderful — Looks and drive ability are the main features I was looking for! Fun to drive and safe, and thanks to the AWD, I can handle it. Braking is terrific. Acceleration is out of this world, and you feel locked to the road surface.

Fabulous — Great car! Great performance and looks. It just goes and goes and it doesn´t take so much gas. Thinking if I should sell it and buy a 2010 911 Turbo PDK instead. Haven´t mad up my mind yet...maybe for next year.

911 — After BMW M3 & M5 , the 911 Carrera S is the next car to trade up to. Love the styling, the heritage, the stance, the setup and the rawness you get in every 911. It is a high reving 6 motor with power almost at all rpm range and screams towards redline/

Worth It. — Great power and handling. Stereo not so good. Interior is beautiful. Power is immense. The brakes are powerful but need snow tires for winter driving because of the tires, not the brakes. Interior noise is minimal. Carbon fiber interior is nice too.

Evening Drives Down Memorial — I may have paid for it but this is Jane's toy! Automatic, heated seats, navigation, and big mirrors for makeup application! It is not an "S" model but she likes it that way because it has All - Wheel drive for safety.

Ma Baby — Still the quintessential sports car after four decades, the 2008 Porsche 911 has a unique blend of style, performance and sound that you can enjoy everyday For some irrational reason I've always been taken by the Targa. This one especially is very TOUGH!
