Simple, stylish, quick, and reliable. Everything you would want in a sports car.

Cup holders

Review

All sports cars offer some degree of fun, often coming with a high Cost of maintenance. The Porsche company has refined the 911 over so many years that no other sports car can match the dependability of the 911. Turn the key and it goes every time and Oh yeah the fun factor is off the chart not to mention the head turning from those wanting to be you. I have had eight Porsches mostly air cooled but starting with the 996 Porsche raised the bar. If you want a true sports car you can drive every day get a Porsche - because it really stinks when the mechanic spends more time with your ride then you do!


Best Features

Dependability - Performance - Autobahn killer - Handling - Styling & Looks - All Wheel Drive Stability Management system is outstanding - Top Down Fun


Worst Features

Interior upgrades should be standard at this price point - Should have included cup holders and glovebox sooner. Porsche seems to take too long introducing ergonomics into their cars.

Review

I have owned many Porsches, including a factory Slant-nose turbo and a 930. I have also owned 3 Ferraris (a 250 GT, a Lusso, a 330GTC). I have driven many other fine and classic sports cars including XK-Es, Alfas,Maseratis. I have owned my 1999 Carrera convertible since new. For many years it was a third car, but since the kids are older and I don't need to drive them all over town as much any more it has been my daily driver for the last two years. While newer Carreras are prettier and slightly faster, this Porsche has been the best and most reliable sports car that I've ever owned. While Ferraris are great, they are a maintenance headache; they break! (don't let anybody tell you differently


Best Features

No hassle, no fuss top down performance driving. It starts, it stops, it doesn't break. What more can you ask of a daily driver. Oh - change the oil every 3000 miles, not the recommended 7500 or 15000


Worst Features

Plastic pieces ( e.g. directional changer) seem weak but they are not. No cup holders, right leg rests uncomfortably against console on long trips, no vertical adjustment for steering wheel (just in and out). Watch the curbs when turning as alloy wheels scratch easily.

Review

This is my first Porsche. Never even considered buying one until I saw this black on black one looking brand new at the dealership. This car is 10 years old but doesn't look or drive more than a year old. It is fast, sleek,eye catching, and I love it.


Best Features

The looks, and the speed.


Worst Features

Cup holders and glove compartment.
