The sound of acceleration is
intoxicating, as is rolling through a
slow-speed zone in first or second
gear. This car turns heads. One minor
problem is lack of a cup holder. One
MAJOR problem is that every 20 year
old idiot in a honda will tailgate
you, as well the 'never will afford a
real car' minivan driving middle age
losers (male and female). Cannot tell
you how many times I have been driving
merrily along and some MORON pulls up
next to me and starts revving his
engine: especially contractors in
pickups trucks. Gas milage:
unbelievebly good. I just re-tread
with factory spec tires, and the cost
was under a grand.
Too much to list. Performance in
turns, acceleration sound and
smoothness, comfort, shifting. Gas
Add a cup holder! This is a daily
driver, and I want to be able to have
some water or coffee while I traverse
my work commute.
This car performs beautifully.
Precise handling, excellent
acceleration and great, classic
styling contribute to a great
experience in the vehicle. 27 mpg at
65 mph is a bonus. It ended up my
best mileage vehicle.
After arriving back from the Porsche
Zuffenhausen factory where I went on
the tour, I felt compelled to promote
these fine cars. I was blown away by
not only the legendary performance of
this fine automobile but also the
quality of both the components and
workmanship are matched only by the
attention to detail in the design.
There is very little to find fault
with. Mind you Porsche has been
refining this car for over 40 years.
Fast, yes but quick too. You can't use
fast very often (on this side of the
Atlantic) but you can use quick all the
None as of yet. I'll ket you know if I
come up with any.
I had never owned a high end sports
performance car. This was definitely a
step up from the Japanese ones I
previously owned and the newer ones on
the current market. Initially, looked
at buying a Maserati Spyder with F1.
Oddly another customer at the Ferrari
dealership recommended trying Porsche
and I have not looked back. I thought
this would be a car that sat in the
garage to maintain its value with low
mileage. I can't stop driving it
though, taking it to work everyday,
routine shopping, long-distance trips,
and sometimes just for fun. It has
been a pleasure to drive. The kids
want to ride in it all the time as well.
Acceleration, sound system & gas
mileage better than would be expected,
convertible, greating cornering and
handling, fantastic service through
Porsche, PCA membership and driver ed
Costly maintenance without warranty,
$300 oil/filter changes (luckily only
annual), needs glove box or other
interior storage, retractable cup
holder as in Boxter, and a tilt wheel
not telescopic one.
