2005 Porsche 911 Carrera S Rwd 2dr Coupe (3.8L 6cyl 6M)
This is a beautiful, sporty, and amazing machine! Unlike the older model, (996) this 2005 has all the retro Porsche styling along with the smoothest, quickest, and most firm 6 speed I've ever experienced! Top speed, don't even ask....

While giving more than lip service to comfort, the new 911 has improved on its already awesome acceleration and handling. I have a "base" model Carrera w/ few options and it delivers handling, class, and admiring comments wherever I travel. I paid $69,000 for my C2 model and have not regretted it -- the extra 10 to 15K for the S model didn't seem worth the extra dollars. I test drove both the Carrera and the Carrera S, and there was no real discernible performance improvement for the extra bucks.
Handling -- I've had mine at 145 mph and it feels rock-solid with a powerful reserve (supposed to do 177 mph per Porsche, but I doubt I'll ever take it that fast on a public road).
Porsche is shameless in their nickle and dime-ing customers for options that should be standard equipment. Its just plain unseemly and cheap behavior for such a fine automaker!

I love my car. It's fast, fun to drive, sticks to the road and I feel safe driving it. I love driving with the top down. The only thing I have a complaint about is the emissions. I've had to take it to service a few times to adjust the check engine light. The emissions system is very delicate on this car.
The body style, the seats, the way the stick shift feels, the console, carbon fiber package, and heated seats.
They should come up with a fan (cooling system) for the seats.
