    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.

    Once In A Lifetime Buy — One of the most desirable cars on the planet, powerful, poised and engineered like a meschersmidt. A daily driver super car that exceeds expectations at so many levels it sounds trite...really, what virtue hasn't been extold of this legendary car? Instead, let's talk about the real cost of ownership...owning a boxster, 911 or other Porsche product is a step across a line that is difficult to withdraw from...can you ever be happy with a mustang or camaro again? This personal shift in paradigm is only exacerbated by the 911 turbo. Yes, that's right....the real cost of ownership isn't the price or the maintenance; it's the cost of replacing it! So if it is within your means, buy one because even if you own it for a few months or a few years...the experience is truly worthy of a bucket list entry.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Power, handling, looks, is there anything else that matters?

    Cons: Stereo/navigation

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

    Pros: handling, engine, seats - just about everything that matters

    Cons: nothing

    Flat-6 — 0-100mph in under 9 seconds, 191mph, track prepared with roll cage and fully adjustable suspension. No electronic aids and a bit of a handful in the wet! Engine derived from the GT1 le-mans car, 381hp and a lovely soundtrack

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

    Pros: Approx 400 hp and the hollow bark of that flat-6

    Cons: err.....none

    Days Of Thunder — Sounds like the thunder with its titanium exhaust including mufflers and air intake cooling system. Goes like a jet once you pas the 3000rpm. Drinks like a fish when you open the throttles but can also be driven with 10ltrs on 100km. Oil consumption is normal with less than 1ltr per 1000km. looks stock but for those that know about this car will notice the details that where modified in a manner that it appears stock.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: All Porsche are timeless in their design so that even the oldest Porsche looks great

    Cons: Cost of purchase can break the pocket

    Little Porsche — Flat-six, 355 HP H & R lowering springs in the box--need to go on! Other than that, bone stock Factory nav Bose high-end audio 19" Carrera Classic wheels (real easy to clean) Wish I did not have to put in the garage for about 4-5 months every winter!

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

    Cons: Have to store it during winter!

    Porsche Is Everything You Can Ask For In An Old School Sport/race Car! — Waited 25 years for this, it better be good. It is refreshing to find Porsche has stayed away from all the unnecessary sophistications - ie. you don't have to remove 10 things everytime you wanted 1 thing changed. It also doesn't employ rubber bushings to excess, so the driving feel is very direct and informative. The definitely superior chassis stiffness is very noticeable and works in harmony with the suspension. Saving the best for last, the engine, despite being old school (ie. an evulotion from the GT1 engine from the '80s, still has no direct injection, individual intake throttles, etc.), still deliver all its 450 hp in such explosive manner such that you will forgive the slower throttle response (vs. modern BMW) or smoothness, after all, it is more like a race engine with true dry-sump design, and a oil-cooled block (but water-cooled heads)! One more thing worth mentioning: the hand painted body work is just flawless, and the material used in the interior (ie. full grain leather, wool matts/carpets, etc.), despite lacking in precision in how they are put together, are of top quality somewhat deserving of the car's high ticket price.

    Pros: Raw, direct, explosive performance.

    Cons: For what I call a "simple car", Porsche should have made it more affordable.

    My First Drive In A Porsche Turbo Phwoar!! And Ooomph — I was offered a short drive by a our friend Alan 2 years ago and having always loved Porsches, jumped at the chance. Now please bear in mind this was something I had wanted to do since I first saw a '80s 964 turbo I was in heaven. Now Alan isn't the tallest of chaps and I'm 6'2" and the seat wasn't able to go down far enough for me to stop my knees from rubbing the steering wheel, but we percevered and it was O.K. The suspension was a bit hard but no harder than an Audi and the brakes were a bit hard to push to make it stop handling was just mind bending. There is a 1/4 mile straight of lovely grippy double lane black stuff near us and when Alan told me to floor it from a stand still I did it was just superb, seamless acceleration all the way upto, well that would be telling wouldn't it. I loved every second of it and want one NOW!! But no money so shall have to wait.

    Pros: Engine, performance, speed, build, engineering, history

    Cons: Can't afford one
