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


I have owned my '05 Carrera S for almost 3 years, and I continue to love it. Full supple leather is a great option that makes the car smell like a Coach store ever time you open the door. The light front end and immediate steering is the 911's best trait - - along with the phenomenal power. Don't be misled by factory number or magazine writeups...the S model will consistently do 0-60 in 4.1 seconds. The low-end torque is unbelievable, although at 6000 rpm the car is running out of steam and wants to be shifted. The acceleration and braking are dizzying -- it's unlike any other car that can be used as a daily driver. Plus, you can fit 2 kids in the backseat and get 27 hwy. Amazing.

Best Features

Steering, power, brakes, exterior design. The way it turns heads everywhere, despite being relatively "common." Interior is quite comfortable for such a high performance car. Atlas Gray paint color is unique and eye-catching. Full supple leather is a must-have that makes the car feel special.

Worst Features

More insulation to quiet the road noise a bit, especially at the back end where the huge tires "thump" over expansion joints. Navigation is cumbersome to use. No bluetooth or Sat radio, but hey, it was built in 2005!
