I've always wanted a 993/996/997 BUT need a back seat that can accommodate a baby seat. The S5 has plenty of room for 3 adults and a large baby seat. It's very comfortable, has all wheel drive (go to YouTube and check out the S5 racing a down hill skier, the car goes up and down the slope!) and has similar stats to a 997 4. 0-60 4.9 S5 vs 4.8 997 4 and 1/4 13.2 S5 vs. 13/12.9 997 4. The 6 speed gear box is not quite as nice as the 997 but is still easy to shift. Anyway this is a great sport GT/luxury sports car. It sticks to the pavement, drives GREAT in the rain and is very comfortable. We'll see how it does over the next 90k miles, but I am very happy with the first 2k miles.
Engine note at start up and during the drive, very easy to drive, very comfortable, can seat 3 adults comfortably and the electronics ROCK (the nav system is pretty good and the controls for the electronics are great)! The brakes are excellent and the car sticks to the pavement.
All tan/brown interior or more interior choices. The interior is very nice but there are limited choices. The steering is a bit dead.
