2009 Porsche 911 Carrera S 2dr Convertible (3.8L 6cyl 6M)

Review

Bought it used but low miles. I've read that performance actually improves after 5k miles when the engine is broken in. After some deliberation, decided to get the pdk with sport chrono package. Glad I did. Took it on some backroads where we could open it up. Put it in sport mode, punched it. Wow. Nothing like I'd ever experienced. My girlfriend took a turn, decided to try "launch mode." put it in sport plus mode. Foot on the break, she revs the engine, the car is lurching, wanting to go. She reluctantly pushes the tach to 6500 rpm, car is screaming. The console lights up "launch mode active" and off we go. It takes about 15 minutes to get her blood pressure back to normal.

Favorite Features

S/sport chrono package, PDK, iPhone interface, convertible (very fast <15 secs and works while moving at reasonable speed.

Suggested Improvements

Only oddity is passenger side mirror behavior (tilting down when in reverse) is erratic, probably need to check the manual. Integrated radar would be nice (this car is easy to get into trouble) but got it aftermarket.
