2006 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S 2dr Coupe AWD (3.8L 6cyl 6M)


Review

I have purchased my first Porsche, a 2006 C4S. I have owned many cars to include a BMW M3. Nothing compares to a 911! Period! A Porsche is a Porsche but, the 911 Carrera is a very special Porsche; which can be told by the amount of people that are still hand making them compared to the other Porsche models. I don't have to consistently say the 911 is an awesome car, go and test drive one yourself and become a believer. Don't worry about Bluetooth, iPod connections, cup holders, etc, etc! This is the epitome of a sportscar, not and SUV! Don't cry about creature features, just enjoy the pleasurable driving experience on a daily basis as Porsche intended you too from the beginning!


Best Features

With a C4S, I love the way it squirts super glue on any tire that you mount to the rims. The HUGE rear end. The power, performance and the reliability. Little kids can actually fit in the rear. The sound of that flat six. If you are looking for a sportscar that can do everything trust me this is it!

2006 Porsche 911 Carrera S 2dr Coupe (3.8L 6cyl 6M)


Review

I've had 911s, 996, 996 C4S, and a few Boxster S for for second home drivers. Nothing compares to the 997 CS. It has plenty of speed, won't tire you out like a GT3 or a box S, the handling is superb, in or out of sport mode. Bought this used with 8500 miles on it. Got rid of a 04 C4S, no comparison. Been driving P cars for almost 30 years and this one has me smiling. Drove the Big Sur coast this am with the sun coming up with a big grin.


Best Features

Acceleration, handling, looks.


Worst Features

Add sat radio, iPod, and bluetooth to all your cars and stop nickel & diming the buyer.

2006 Porsche 911 Carrera S 2dr Convertible (3.8L 6cyl 6M)


Review

I purchased this car used one year ago and I am still going around driving it just for fun on a daily basis. This car is just plain fun to drive. It picks you up, keeps you happy. For a car I cannot think of a better purchase. Ferrari? Got 200K? Lotus? Looks like a Go Cart. Vette? Stiff American muscle car, no sophistication. Sorry, but this car is tops. Expensive but not unreal. I can think of no faults. Sure, it could use a blue tooth and XM Radio options but this is just a classy, amazing automobile. Buy one before life passes you by! Oh, and if you live in a nice climate get the convertible!! Just adds 50% more fun to the drive. Amazing car.


Best Features

acceleration, looks, sound, steering, road feel.


Worst Features

blue tooth and XM Radio option

2006 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 2dr Convertible AWD (3.6L 6cyl 6M)


Review

Yes this car is everything it's made out to be, fast, quick, sexy, bold, stunning, sexy, an ego stroker without compare. EVERYONE looks and looks again. But the real rush is not all the exterior fuss but that feeling deep inside that let's you know I made it! This car is one with the driver, four seats, yeah right! lol This car is an extension of your driving capabilities, an expression of your need to find space and create space on the fly. Own a 745 BMW that I simply adore but sometimes, everyday if I could, you just want it to be about "you"...and nothing else. Driving down PCH on a beautiful California night with the top down and my beautiful wife. Well it doesn't get better. Nice!


Best Features

Love the power, brakes are awesome and the sound system with the bass UP is incredible! The car is real world ready, cup holders that work, and the air condition that is better than my 745 BMW. Imagine that?


Worst Features

KEY! Like the BMW soap bar type better when it's in my pants pocket and the Porsche key is kind of dated. Even my son's Acura TL's key hides the "key" in a more comfortable design. Is that petty?

Review

Porsche comes out #1 again in the J.D Power survey with build quality and my experience is no different. Classic styling never grows old. It makes your heart skip a beat every time. Porsche's adaptive sport seats are the best I've ever owned. The handling & driver feedback is amazing for this car. This isn't a hick muscle car that's only good for driving in a straight line. Take this car into the twisties and you'll see what owning a Porsche is all about. The agility is amazing, and Porsche did a great job of keeping the weight very low in the 3000's unlike inferior German competitors that can only boast a handful of extra hp's and trunk space.


Best Features

Handling in the twisties. Low weight.


Worst Features

Price. However, it is nice to have the exclusivity.
