After forty years of wanting one badly, I bought my Porsche 911. Low mileage well cared for Tiptronic Coupe. So much fun to drive, fast without a lot of noise or fuss. Plenty of cabin and head room even at 6'3.
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!
I bought a used 2005 (997) 911 Carrera Coupe with Tiptronic 7 month ago. This is my first Porsche, and can't deny I expected to be a nice experience; this car has given me a lot of satisfaction and went beyond my high expectations. The handling at any speed is amazing.
This car is a pleasure to drive. It performs effortlessly on city streets and outrageously well on the highway. On winding country hillside roads the performance is astounding. The active suspension system (PASM) kicks in and pulls the car level in the hardest turns. You finish a turn with the feeling that there were no "G" forces at all. The interior is terrific.
The 2005 Porsche 911 Carrera is a solid improvement over my 996 (which I believe was a leap ahead of the 993). It hae better looks with the new 1.7 inch wider body, 1 inch wider tracks, an interior that finally fits an $80,000 car, and more features that work well with a sports car. This is the best Porsche value in 6 years in a near supercar package.
