    Perfect Sports Car. — Handling, braking, acceleration, and looks are all perfect. An incredible sports car that is still comfortable and docile enough to easily be a daily commuting car. Mileage isn't great and maintenance costs are more expensive than an average car. Premium stereo system delivers incredible sound from any type of music. The car is also very practical for a sports car with a decent sized trunk and rear seats.

    Pros: Acceleration, braking, handling, looks

    Cons: Steptronic transmission is slow

    The Love Of My Life — Handles like a dream, 0-60 in under 5 seconds, yet comfortable enough to be my daily driver. Not comfortable for anyone over 6 feet tall, and the backseat is really not a backseat as it is a grocery shelf. Also, the maintenance costs are outrageous. But, it's all worth it. Good sound system, too, not that you need it with that gorgeous exhaust note.

    Pros: Handling, acceleration, looks, anything having to do with driving

    Cons: Anything having to do with cost or size

    Almost The Whole Package — It was fast and just a bit out of control thanks to that engine hanging off the rear. But man could this ride move.

    Pros: Speed, stability, interior build and sound

    Cons: Handling with that engine in the back

    Awesome — Love the handling and style. A real head turner with the top up or down. Looks sexy with hard top too. Interior is cockpit style with all controls within arms reach of the driver. Would recommend this vehicle to any sports car enthusiast.

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

    Pros: Best sports car made

    Cons: rear seat

    says:
    The Porsche 996 variant of 911 is one of the most enjoyable sports coupe to drive. Its enjoyed a rich tradition of 911 engineering, handling and performance. In my 2003 model, it has required only regular maintenance for oil and brerake pad changes. Its well engineered drivers car, especially with a manual shift. It is extremely reliable and a real drivers car.

    The Porsche 911 is amazing in every aspect but the fact that they do it with a flat head 6 cylinder just blows me away.
