2005 Porsche 911 Coupe Carrera S Rwd 2dr Coupe (3.8L 6cyl 6M)


Review

I own different cars, SL500 / 750LI .., this is best of all. You really feel a sport car from inside out. Not like other, change their style completely every 4 to 8 years, this sport can says out loud "Porsche". Its acceleration is excellent. The Tiptronic transmission can be enjoyed in both auto/manual shift. My only complaints are the vehicle is too low to the ground, hard to get in or out from parking lot and the Bose stereo system is not great.. It needs more space for the backseat.


Best Features

Handling and seats.


Worst Features

Bluetooth and satelite radio technology must be in this type of vehicle.

2005 Porsche 911 Coupe Carrera 4S AWD 2dr Coupe (3.6L 6cyl 6M)


Review

My 4th Porsche 911, and each one has gotten better and better. This one is by far the best of all: it has more speed, comfort, luxury, handling. In this modern world, it is nice to know that the 911 remains one of those special cars, and as the old ad says, "there is no substitute"...still.


Best Features

The performance, styling, and uniqueness.

2005 Porsche 911 Coupe Carrera S Rwd 2dr Coupe (3.8L 6cyl 6M)


Review

I recently changed from a Porsche 911 996 to a 997s. The 997 is more of a car in terms of value for the money. It is gorgeous to look at and a huge improvement over the 996. The Sports Chrono package is a great boy's toy. I find the sport setting too much on twisty bumpy roads, it seems to become unsettled. I will save the setting for track days or maybe I just need to drive it more and find just how good it is!


Worst Features

Add a heads up display as in the BMW M5.

2005 Porsche 911 Coupe Carrera S Rwd 2dr Coupe (3.8L 6cyl 6M)


Review

This car is a pleasure to drive. It performs effortlessly on city streets and outrageously well on the highway. On winding country hillside roads the performance is astounding. The active suspension system (PASM) kicks in and pulls the car level in the hardest turns. You finish a turn with the feeling that there were no "G" forces at all. The interior is terrific.


Best Features

The engine, transmission, suspension, sports active seats, body appearance, sound system, navigation system, all leather option, red brake calipers, sunroof, and the engine "Growl".


Worst Features

A way to close the trunk (in front) without having to leave finger prints.

Review

This is a beautiful, sporty, and amazing machine! Unlike the older model, (996) this 2005 has all the retro Porsche styling along with the smoothest, quickest, and most firm 6 speed I've ever experienced! Top speed, don't even ask....
