2005 Porsche 911 GT3 Rwd 2dr Coupe (3.6L 6cyl 6M)


Review

Just one thing comes to mind everytime I drive my GT3. Incredible. To be able to drive a Cup car on the streets is a real treat. The sound of the engine is mesmerizing. I find myself shifting at high RPM each time just to hear it. The acceleration, brakes and handling are out of this world. I had a 2003 996 Carrera before this and it is night and day difference. This car is very rough and loud, but that is what I like about it. It is the essence of a Porsche and pure driving pleasure. My only regret is that I didn't get one sooner. Everyone I've taken out on a ride is spellbound. My wife makes me take her out at least twice per week. Get one and enjoy it.


Best Features

Engine, brakes and handling. Ride height a little low for street use, but this can be adjusted.


Worst Features

None. Make all Porsches like this. This should be the base model!

2005 Porsche 911 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.

2005 Porsche 911 GT3 Rwd 2dr Coupe (3.6L 6cyl 6M)


Review

This is the essence of sports car driving. A little rough as a daily driver but if you like track events you shouldn't buy anything else. A true race bred street legal piece of machinery. You'll have tons of fun answering silly questios from the kids in the tricked out Civics! If you can afford it....buy it!


Best Features

Handling, power, and the best brakes in the world!


Worst Features

None

2005 Porsche 911 Carrera Rwd 2dr Cabriolet (3.6L 6cyl 6M)


Review

This is the finest auto made, hand made, and the fun factor is thru the roof. Where can you get a street legal race car which is affordable to drive?


Worst Features

More standard than options, or just raise the price

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


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....
