2008 Porsche 911 Carrera S 2dr Convertible (3.8L 6cyl 6M)


Review

This Cab S is my fourth Porsche and my second 911, and the best one ever. This is truly a dream car and is so much fun to drive. The handling and speed is light years ahead of anything Porsche has put out on the streets and blows the completion away. The exterior and interior of this gem is perfect! Porsche I'm so proud of you; you done good!


Favorite Features

The sound of the engine, the interior design (finally Porsche got it right inside this beauty). The power this baby puts out is awesome. Well done!


Suggested Improvements

Get the bluetooth and a aux jack for this baby. Other than these two missing in action items this is the sports car of the 21st century.

2008 Porsche 911 Turbo 2dr Convertible AWD (3.6L 6cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

This 08 Turbo cab is my 5th Porsche, went from 06 C2 cab manual to 08 turbo cab tip and love it!! Because of the awd, it handles corners and twisty roads far much better than my 06 c2-S cab, the power is unbelievable & beyond, it feels very solid & sticks to the road. I wish it has aggressive exhaust note or at least as good as the c-2 S w/ sport chrono package. I hope that I will not miss the stick shift feel and continue to enjoy the tip S on my new turbo. Will see!


Favorite Features

Instant power unlike my Cayenne Turbo S where it has delay before take-off. painted front air grill looks much better & great exterior style. Being new car with just 150 miles driven so far I got best fuel eco - 24 mpg! it's incredible, it is better than my old 06 c2-S cabin fuel consumption!


Suggested Improvements

For $155K it should come standard with bluetooth, phone, adaptive sport seat, aggressive exhaust note (must) like the lambo-spider or F430

Review

2500rpm's then HOLD ON-the power- handling-color options-fill my fickle, very picky needs! The leather, MUCH FINER than any Bentley- plus you do not have to plug it in at night (like Bentley -Aston-Ferrari- Lambo). The 150,000 is still 100,000 under the competition. Plus it ALWAYS STARTS! LOVE-LOVE IT.

Review

I have owned porsches since 1982, great cars, but what has happened to the quality. Buttons now fall off, electrical system fails - try losing your headlights at 65 on a windy road at midnight (I don't believe they switched to Lucas-but.....) and customer service that talks nice and does nothing. I just don't know, it's a blast to drive, but then again, it is a porsche, but then again, it's not the porsche I fell in love with

Review

This car is a ton of fun to drive. I recommend the sport exhaust. Next car will be the turbo. I need to find a track as the speed and acceleration are intoxicating. I'm amazed at how smooth the engine is.


Favorite Features

Suggested Improvements
