    Awesome Car — Wish I had never Wrecked it. Greatest vehicle I have ever owned. Never had a major problem. The only downside is that it should not be used as a daily driver, but a weekend/fun car only. Also not that comfortable on long trips, but then again it is a porsche, I'd still buy another one.

    Pros: speed, agility, looks, quality

    Cons: repair, tires

    It's A Porsche. — An awesome car. The most fun I have had with just 200 Horsepower. Beautiful exhaust note. Crisp handling.

    Pros: AMAZING handling.  Turns heads.  Fun + 1.  Convertible.

    Cons: Needs a few more hp.

    On A Flat Bed 3 Times In 10 Months — Engine died with 3000 miles on it. Just stopped dead on the highway pulling out of a toll booth. Another time it died with the motor fine, but unable to move - broken CV joint or something. Last time on a flat bed was a shift cable falling off so I couldn't get the car in gear.

    Pros: Nice handling. Great brakes. Very smooth power band.

    Cons: Unreliable.  This was a special order and they still didn't give me the options I asked for.

    Great All Around Car — Not lightening fast, but handled and braked extremely well. Got decent gas mileage too. Tough for a family of 4 though

    Pros: Reliable, fun, topless

    Cons: not the fastest

    A Lot Of Fun To Drive — Had a racing suspension on it, so the ride sucked, but it handled like a go-kart

    Pros: The funest car I have driven

    Cons: Expensive to own and fix

    Gorgeous — Hated selling mine, but it was time. Great handling car, incredibly fun to drive, better-than-anticipated trunk space (front and back!), people notice you. Mileage nothing special (about 24 mpg highway), tires need to be replaced every four years or so.

    Owner for 7 years, 6 months

    Miles Driven per Year:6,000

    Cons: Hated the fact that the battery would go dead in a short time - four weeks of inactivity - and then only a dealer could fix the situation for hundreds of dollars (opening the front hood requires electricity, and that's lacking if the battery is dead - duh.  And Porsche still puts out cars with the same issue even now, eight years later).

    Excellente! — Could not ask for a nicer weekend car! When kept in great shape it is a real looker! Of all the color combos this one and maybe one other always looks great and never fails to turn heads! It's a great car for a babe and/or a great chick magnet!

    Pros: This car, if you know Porsche's is one of the best color combos..white with metropole blue interior leather and top. It has been garaged for a decade and this, as you know, saves the top!
    The interior is in top form and the titanium upgrade to the gear shift is very noticeable!
    The trips have been few, the beach with the top down and a few soccer tournaments! Tires are in great shape as well!
    In short low miles on a car of this calibre gives you years of trouble free enjoyment!

    Cons: no cup holder!
