911 coupe s (991 version with PDK)

2012 Porsche 911 Carrera S 2dr Coupe (3.8L 6cyl 7M)

Review

What a nice car! I have had the previous version with both cabriolet and coupe s and this version is significantly better than both. It's like having 2 cars in one. If you want to push it, it's a Porsche and responds instantly. If you want to drive sedately, then it can be comfortable and composed. The new steering and suspension are top notch; not too stiff, but keeps the car flat when pushed. The PDK is the best; forget about the manual. Only downsides are the price and no place for your sunglasses or phone. User interface is also not the easiest with the touchscreen, but that's just nitpicking. If you can afford it get it.

Favorite Features

The driving experience, period.

Suggested Improvements

As above: high price, no sunglass/phone holders, not the easiest touchscreen interface. Why does a $125K car need start/stop, brake regeneration, cylinder deactivation when coasting etc.? If you can afford this car, do you really care about the gas mileage? All of these gas saving features only improve the mpg from maybe 20 to 21 mpg. Not worth it in my humble opinion.
