    Fun — Funnest car I've ever owned. handles great and seems to agree with the road much better than my corvette did. Looking for another now in a little newer model. Leather seats fit most people very well and the heat option is nice.

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

    Pros: great power and fun to put the top down.

    Cons: OEM parts are through the roof in cost.

    Loving My 911 — Always wanted a 911 and this automobile exceeds my hopes and dreams! Water cooling has made them easier to maintain along with hydraulic lifters eliminating the constant valve adjustments for previous models. Owned one MBZ in the past and I am equally pleased with the beautiful way things are finished and well thought out. Power band, via double overhead cams with infinitely variable cam timing, is basically from idle to it's 7,200 RPM red line. Take it for a spin around the block and a bad mood isn't even a memory afterwards. Probably will add K&N cold air intake which is supposed to make it sound even better! Back seat is small but it is a sports car so it is amazing to even have a back seat. Can hardly wait to run Hwy 1 from Morro Bay to Monterey, my favorite road! Have only owned her for a couple of months so ratings are premature however I plan on doing all repair and maintenance myself so hopefully won't be out of control. Couple of years should help with overall views and I am looking forward to them!

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

    Pros: Best handling car I have experienced.  Love the 6 speed gear box.  Sounds fantastic!  Seats are extremely comfortable.  Love it!

    Cons: Can't use cruise control above 120 MPH.  Can't downshift into 5th above 146 MPH.  Lol!  Nothing to complain about.  I know the tires will be expensive but I knew that before I bought it.

    Performance — The car performs in every aspect it was built for and advertised. Handling, turns, acceleration, power, comfort, visibility and shifting all give the driver ... me in this case all the tools to enjoy the ride, speed and maneuverability. You can't ask for more at the price point,

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

    Pros: It exceeds marketing hype!  The car performs exactly as advertised and listed.

    Cons: Convertible is typical with rattles.

    All Around Great Sports Car! — I love to drive this car! When it is nice out and the top is down there is no better car to see the scenic vistas of a nice drive wherever you go. The sound of the motor is nice and not too loud and the car rides nice and smooth. It is nice to drive along the ocean or up in the mountains and even in the city. You can see everything nice with the top down. You can't beat a convertible Porsche for a great summer car!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: fun to drive, shifts smoothly, nice acceleration, handles great!

    Cons: no cup holders for your coffee

    Great Daily Driver! — I love the power and its handling ability this car puts out. This car sounds and handles amazingly. You get good gas mileage too! Its great to cruz in with its comfortable seats, you mold right in them. I love this car but I have to get something bigger for the family.

    Pros: Gets you to where you want to go fast and in style.

    Cons: Gotta watch your speed.

    Excellent Driving, Fast, Reliable And Handles Excellent. — I did not dislike anything about this car other than the maintenance costs. The car is more reliable than most and it gets great gas mileage, which about 20 to 25 in the city and about 30 to 35 mpg on highway depending on traffic conditions and speed.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Handles excellent and its power is unmatched to any other car.

    Cons: Maintenance is usually higher than a typical car but it is expected with a 100k price tag.

    Great Sport Car — I like that everyone likes it, what I dont like is that everyone wants it..lol. The cost to maintain is expected for what the car is so I dont find it too bad. If you treat it good it will return the favor in longevity. One of the most funnest cars I driven, maybe thats why I kept it for so many years and do not want to part with it.

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

    Pros: handles well

    Cons: Plastic interior

    Porsche 996 — Switch from a Audi TT, glad I did that cos this is one of the best sports car in the planet. I tested it with 170mph+ (280km+) and still feel very stable. Nothing much mods did on the car, only rims & tires, performance chips and bars.

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

    Pros: almost everything

    Cons: can't really think of

    Stick With Hot Air! — It does not compare to the air cooled porsches. These cars are now cheaply built, tinny versions of once great roaring beasts. I suspect, an S with a 6 speed gets a bit closer to the real deal than my Tiptronic Carrera. Still, look for a good air cooled 911 and you can't go wrong. Don't believe the hype.

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

    Pros: Nothing really...it looks good.

    Cons: Tiptronic is gutless
