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


Review

This is the best car I have ever owned. It is fast and fun to drive. The quality of this car is excellent and the road handling is amazing. The 911 is still "the Daddy".

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


Review

This is an incredible car. It is sensitive to tire pressures, 381 hp w x51 kit. The harder you drive it, the better it drives. i.e. more the confident you will be in it's capabilities. The engine is very flexible and has gobs of power above 4,200 rpm. It has the sport chrono which makes the throttle more sensitive, firms the shocks for more precision driving and opens that melodious Porsche exhaust up. After 5,000 miles, I still get excited driving this car. There truly is no substitute. It is a world beater with 3.8 liter six cylinders. Wow. The engineers have triumphed over the physical issues of a rear engine vehicle.


Favorite Features

The engine with the x-51 381 hp. When you start the car it's edgy even at idle. I like the sport chrono, it makes the car more precise for twisty roads and makes a beautiful symphony occur in your back seat.


Suggested Improvements

Flip the engine into the middle of the car instead of the rear.

This car is almost as I would imagine a space ship. I have owned many Porsche cars, and the 997 is a step beyond, except for the Carrera GT. Thank you Porsche for making my life on earth, more complete!

None - what more can you do after this!

2006 Porsche 911 Coupe Carrera 4 2dr Coupe AWD (3.6L 6cyl 6M)


Review

The lease on my Cayenne turbo was ending and I had always wanted a Carrera. This car is beyond even my expectations! It's extremely comfortable, a blast to drive, and handles like perfection! The braking is truly exceptional. When you are driving, you feel like you are in a car that is much more substantial in size. It's ROCK SOLID!


Favorite Features

The handling, brakes, PSM, clear guages, park assist, and sound system.


Suggested Improvements

It should have more up to date electronics. The Japanese cars surpass it in this dept. Also, it lacks Bluetooth, has old style navigation, no dual climate controls, and no motorized mirrors.
