Great car.




911 cab - highly overrated

I always dreamed of a 911 but little did I realize it would become a nightmare. I have always loved the look and sound of the 911, but have been generally disappointed since owning it. I still think the look and sound is outstanding, but the performance is really nothing special for a car that stickered out over $100 K. You can get better performance from a corvette or BMW M3 for half the price. In addition, the reliability has been abysmal as the car has been in the shop approximately every 2 months. Finally, the Porsche mystique has been severly compromised by the Boxster. My advice for future owners? Admire from afar but do not purchase!




This car is fun to

This is a super fun auto to drive. It has the get-up and go one expects from a sports car w/ the creature comfort one should expect from luxury models. One never forgets that this car is ALL PORSCHE!!!
