Once You Go Porsche... —

Some people complain about the water-cooled engines that came out in 1998, and since it was a new engine this car may have had problems. This car (mine at over 111,000 miles now) is still running great, shifting well, and looks just as hot as any of the newer models. We havent had engine problems (yet) and the car has been tot he same dealer since it was born and it's history is squeaky, so I dont think it ever had any engine problems, despite the hoopla about the engines in these. It gets a lot of reaction (and it's not just because I'm a girl). I hear people walk by the house when it's parked out front and comment on it all the time, or when I'm in a coffee shop and people stop to check it out outside. The backseats really are tiny. I have a picture on here where my brother is in the backdseat - he's not much taller than me (I'm 5'2") and he looks like a against back there (and he barely fits - only because he's sitting behind me and my seat is up). When my husband drives the car the front seat is back so far there is no leg room for a backseat passenger on the driver's side. Trunk space is ok - it's enough to fit a 12-pack of toilet paper or two cases of beer with a little room to spare. It could also potentially fit a small rollerbag or a gym duffel bag. Any of these things will fit with a little room to spare on top (maybe 12 inches). Larger suitcases will not fit. If you must, you can put a larger suitcase in the backseat with the top down. Really, this car is a wet dream, despite being 1999.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Handles spectacularly, looks hot - even kids have that visceral "look mom it's a Porsche! reaction (it's happened several times), purrs like a kitty

Cons: Typical convertible issues - plastic window hard to see through, large blind spots when top is up. Since it's older it doesnt have an auxillary port to plug in an MP3 player or phone.
