2008 Porsche 911 Carrera S 2dr Coupe (3.8L 6cyl 6M)
I love this car! It is a joy to drive. It is a joy to let my friends drive it. My wife is not a car person, but she loves driving it and riding in it. It handles better than any MBZ that I have owned. I have always wanted a Porsche and I am 73-years old. It was now or never. It is the best thing that I have ever given myself. The car's handling saved our lives when another driver almost side-swiped us. I don't drive the car much over 75 because getting their sooner makes the fun of the drive shorter. It is just as much fun in city driving as it is on the highway. One minor electrical fix in 15 months. If you can afford to buy or lease, you won't be sorry. I love my Red Monster!
Triptronic, handling, ability to change firmness of ride, ride, quiet for this type of car, workmanship. At 70 MPH on cruise control, the car will deliver about 27 MPG.
Front is quite low and scrapes on many driveways, no matter what avoidance is taken by me. Nature of the beast, I guess.
