    Porsche — it's fast and has a great color. The motor is greatc and it has hydrolics that can come off. It has place for two people so it is light and not heavy so it can go faster.IT has a huge trunk to put things that you buy. It has black windows so noone can see you inside

    Pros: motor

    Cons: color

    I'm On Cloud 9(97) — The only flaw with this car is that it isn't a convertible:-( I knew that when I bought it, and I still love every mile in it, but I am coveting a 997 soft top. Still the best car to drive every day

    Pros: Fast and not furious

    Cons: MPG? Who cares

    A Track Weapon — Purpose built to almost be the perfect race car for the street. They only missed a few tiny things.

    Pros: Raw driving excitement for the unintimidated.

    Cons: The stock springs and shock are a compromise.  996 interior build quality leaves a bit to be desired compared to the 993.  Squeaks and creaks more than it should at that price level.  Minor though, since it makes many more exciting noises to compensate.

    The Most Complete Convertible — The 997 is the most complete convertible I have driven: excellent build quality, unequalled performance (better than Carrera 4) in the way it all reaches the road. Excellent grip, acceleration, steering, handling, plus generous spec. A winner all-round.

    Pros: Performance, acceleration, steering, handling, grip, build quality, standard equipment

    Cons: An Aston looks nicer

    I Love Her!!! — We love this car. She only gets out of the garage on sunny days. Red ext. black int. Pretty good on gas. Handles like the curves like she has super glue on her tires. I have to admit, on the low end, our corvette would kick her ass, but top end? She will leave anything behind

    Pros: What do you think? It s a Porsche!

    Cons: Inside is a bit...German. No cup holders, just the basics.

    The Supercar For The Masses — A great car to live with, a little heavy on the clutch, but you will soon forget all that when you hit the motorway.

    Pros: Reliability, performance and looks

    Cons: Every one will want to be your friend

    Fast And Fun! — car is awesome, the communication system should integrate blue tooth instead of a sim card, which my phone company tells me they can't duplicate

    Cons: the communication system should have blue tooth capabilities instead of sim card

    Great Car For Fun Driving Especially In The Mountains. — Love driving the car, sometimes forget how powerful it is until I get a chance to find some open road. Get compliments on the car every I go in it. Great car with a wonderful sound system in it with 13 speakers, sounds like your in the middle of the band. I have not done any track days in it but I bet it would be a lot of fun to do!!

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

    Pros: Awesome car to drive,,

    Cons: No real rear seats, well for children under 5ft maybe

    Outstanding Car That Can Reach 189mph Safely !!!!!!! — How can you not like a Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet, if you a car person. Like an artist not liking Picasso. Wow what a car !!!!!! Awesome, a v6 that can produce 189mph & the best part is you feel very safe .

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Car is a masterpiece of  German production, they really know how to build a vehicle.

    Cons: Not a lot of cargo space,  travel lite.

    Sophisticated, Smooth & Speedy — Not much to dislike, except maybe the Navigation input, somewhat tricky at first but once you do it, it's a cake walk. The exceptional pro to this vehicle is the Manual to Auto mode with the 5 spd Tiptronic transmission - fun down shifting to hear the revs and even funner up shifting to hear the wind racing by you.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Performance from the front to the back and from the bottom to the top,  The acceleration is amazing and smooth in all gears in this fabulous 5spd Tiptronic equiped Turbo S Cab

    Cons: Golf anyone?  Oh wait I'll have to put them in the passengers seat or keep them at the club house.
