2006 Porsche 911 Carrera S 2dr Coupe (3.8L 6cyl 6M)
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.
The factory GT3 aero kit though admittedly a little over the top for most, exotic performance with "Honda like" reliability.
make the factory sport exhaust actually sound good
