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

Review

The 997 Turbo Coupe is another leap forward for Porsche. This new model has enthusiastic power across a wide power band, incredible acceleration, and superb handling. While it would be at home on any racing circuit, it also is easy to drive around town and in traffic. It is unusual to find a car that performs so well in a straight line, in the twisties, and can still serve as a daily driver if desired. When the turbos kick in the car will really set you back in the seat.

Favorite Features

My favorite features include the tremendous acceleration, and cornering capabilities coupled with comfort and all the amenities of a typical luxury car. You do not get beat up when driving this car like some high performance cars.

Suggested Improvements

Eliminate the back seat and move the engine forward to improve weight balance. Adding the ability to raise the nose several inches (ala Lamborghini) when crossing driveway aprons would also improve the car.
