08 turbo cab tiptronic
By daniel Minc on


2008 Porsche 911 Turbo 2dr Convertible AWD (3.6L 6cyl Turbo 6M)


Went from an 06 c2s cab stick, to an 08 turbo cab tip. Love the power on demand, glued to the road feeling on country roads. The turbo definitely has a more planted feel on the twisties, probably due to the 4 wheel drive and more weight up front. The c2s felt very light up front with its go kart kind of feel. The main shock to me is how civilized the power train is. Not much of a snarl. no one will hear you and even starting it up is not a noticable event. It unfortunately lacks a killer exhaust note. My 06 C2s started with a snarl which was rewarding. The Tip is smooth as glass, no smg here, and it goes like hell too, but will it fulfill the boy racer desire? Maybe.

Best Features

Exterior design, new turbo wheels, big time power all the time.

Worst Features

Bluetooth (come on porsche this is 2008 in a $150,000 car), satellite radio. Sharper interior colors like a 430. Needs a more aggressive exhaust note.
