This is a spectacular sports car that is also practical enough that it can be driven everyday. The only downside is the expensive maintenance.

Overall:

Major fault of this car is the IMS/RMS bearing failure. If the factory bearings have not been replaced, the engine could have a catastrophic failure. It does not happen in all cases but Porsche people try to stay away from the Carrera. The Carrera S has a different engine.

wonderful car, very reliable, economical, powerful and stylish. Introduction of 997 vs 996 was a great idea - the ageless face design is very attractive.

Breathtaking! — If you're looking to fully enjoy the experience of driving, you couldn't pick a better car to do it in. The only way to adequately understand it's performance is to drive one. Once driven you will be hooked for a lifetime!

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

Pros: The performance and handling is unmatched. It's a great looking car and never disappoints when you get behind the wheel.  The ultimate driving experience. Although maintenance costs are higher than normal, they are relatively simple and when followed will give you years of satisfaction.

Cons: The car loves to fly so keep a tab on the speedometer.

The Poster Chilld Of What A Porsche Is — Styling, Performance, Sound system...I mean the list goes on and on. I did have a issue with a evac leak which took some time to get corrected, but once complete she was turning heads and breaking legs as she is supposed TO........!

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

Pros: style, handling, sound system

Cons: Nothing ......nothing at ALL.

I love the 992. It is the best 911 so far in my opinion. I prefer the S version for additional power. It is an expensive car but the experience is like no other. Read More

It wasn’t too appealing knowing it’s a coupe with not much power to accelerate. I’d rather go for a GT3 though it costs more but it’s worth the money. Read More
