2005 Porsche 911 Carrera Rwd 2dr Coupe (3.6L 6cyl 6M)


Review

I just bought this car trading my '05 Boxster in. Wow! This car is...unbelievable in every way. It's fast, fun and damn good looking. My brother says it well - engineering excellence. I am so happy and privileged to be an owner and to be able to drive a vehcile that so many people dream of driving and owning. I bought an Artic silver one with 19" Carrera wheels, bi xenons, sport seats and so forth. There is no substitute!


Best Features

The performance, looks, handling, drive, everything!


Worst Features

The seats vibrate at idle, They need to fix this.

2005 Porsche 911 Carrera S Rwd 2dr Coupe (3.8L 6cyl 6M)


Review

I own different cars, SL500 / 750LI .., this is best of all. You really feel a sport car from inside out. Not like other, change their style completely every 4 to 8 years, this sport can says out loud "Porsche". Its acceleration is excellent. The Tiptronic transmission can be enjoyed in both auto/manual shift. My only complaints are the vehicle is too low to the ground, hard to get in or out from parking lot and the Bose stereo system is not great.. It needs more space for the backseat.


Best Features

Handling and seats.


Worst Features

Bluetooth and satelite radio technology must be in this type of vehicle.

2005 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S AWD 2dr Coupe (3.6L 6cyl 6M)


Review

My 4th Porsche 911, and each one has gotten better and better. This one is by far the best of all: it has more speed, comfort, luxury, handling. In this modern world, it is nice to know that the 911 remains one of those special cars, and as the old ad says, "there is no substitute"...still.


Best Features

The performance, styling, and uniqueness.

2005 Porsche 911 Carrera S Rwd 2dr Coupe (3.8L 6cyl 6M)


Review

I recently changed from a Porsche 911 996 to a 997s. The 997 is more of a car in terms of value for the money. It is gorgeous to look at and a huge improvement over the 996. The Sports Chrono package is a great boy's toy. I find the sport setting too much on twisty bumpy roads, it seems to become unsettled. I will save the setting for track days or maybe I just need to drive it more and find just how good it is!


Worst Features

Add a heads up display as in the BMW M5.

2005 Porsche 911 GT3 Rwd 2dr Coupe (3.6L 6cyl 6M)


Review

My Dad purchased a 996 GT3 a couple months ago and all I can say is WOW! We had the privelege of driving the car on the track and it is unbelievable. The car sticks like glue and the carbon ceramic brakes are extremely powerful. He just had a new exhaust installed and the engine sounds even better than it did before. If you're looking for a car that can be used as a daily driver and also take to the track on the weekends, this is your car.


Best Features

The engine, brakes, handling, seats.....the list goes on and on.


Worst Features

Nothing, the car is perfect the way it is.
