2006 Porsche 911 Coupe Carrera 2dr Coupe (3.6L 6cyl 6M)


Review

You can easily pay thousands more for a Ferrari but why would you? The Carrera is the finest, real world, daily drive exotic sports car on the planet. As far as looks, realibility, speed, and fun this is the car to own. The down side, is maintenance costs but to be candid this is to be expected of any high end sports car and if this is a problem for you, then you should be driving a Carrera.


Best Features

Style, quality


Worst Features

Too many things that should be standard on a $90k car are options

2006 Porsche 911 Coupe Carrera S 2dr Coupe (3.8L 6cyl 6M)


Review

Somehow the Carrera S manages to exceed nearly everyone's expectations including mine. I favor performance over luxury and am impressed at how Porsche delivers both in the 997S. If you want luxury, consider getting full leather as the interior is a bit plain without it. I previously owned a Cayman S and did at least a dozen track days in it. My Carrera S came with the sport exhaust that to me, sounded just ok. I added AWE cats and exhaust and wow! It sounds great and the car is surprisingly faster, such that I now clearly enjoy it more than the Cayman S.


Best Features

The factory GT3 aero kit though admittedly a little over the top for most, exotic performance with "Honda like" reliability.


Worst Features

make the factory sport exhaust actually sound good

2006 Porsche 911 Coupe Carrera 4S 2dr Coupe AWD (3.8L 6cyl 6M)


Review

I have purchased my first Porsche, a 2006 C4S. I have owned many cars to include a BMW M3. Nothing compares to a 911! Period! A Porsche is a Porsche but, the 911 Carrera is a very special Porsche; which can be told by the amount of people that are still hand making them compared to the other Porsche models. I don't have to consistently say the 911 is an awesome car, go and test drive one yourself and become a believer. Don't worry about Bluetooth, iPod connections, cup holders, etc, etc! This is the epitome of a sportscar, not and SUV! Don't cry about creature features, just enjoy the pleasurable driving experience on a daily basis as Porsche intended you too from the beginning!


Best Features

With a C4S, I love the way it squirts super glue on any tire that you mount to the rims. The HUGE rear end. The power, performance and the reliability. Little kids can actually fit in the rear. The sound of that flat six. If you are looking for a sportscar that can do everything trust me this is it!

2006 Porsche 911 Coupe Carrera S 2dr Coupe (3.8L 6cyl 6M)


Review

I've had 911s, 996, 996 C4S, and a few Boxster S for for second home drivers. Nothing compares to the 997 CS. It has plenty of speed, won't tire you out like a GT3 or a box S, the handling is superb, in or out of sport mode. Bought this used with 8500 miles on it. Got rid of a 04 C4S, no comparison. Been driving P cars for almost 30 years and this one has me smiling. Drove the Big Sur coast this am with the sun coming up with a big grin.


Best Features

Acceleration, handling, looks.


Worst Features

Add sat radio, iPod, and bluetooth to all your cars and stop nickel & diming the buyer.

2006 Porsche 911 Coupe Carrera S 2dr Coupe (3.8L 6cyl 6M)


Review

A wonderful work of art. 6 speed stick is refined. Wife loves it. The fat rear end is sexy.


Best Features

Driving in sport mode on a smooth road. Sport mode is really an unbelievable experience. Instant rocket ship.


Worst Features

Exhaust sounds tiny unless in sport mode. I wish there was a way to bypass and run exhaust on sport mode all of the time. Clear vinyl protection a must on front of car.
