2500rpm's then HOLD ON-the power- handling-color options-fill my fickle, very picky needs! The leather, MUCH FINER than any Bentley- plus you do not have to plug it in at night (like Bentley -Aston-Ferrari- Lambo). The 150,000 is still 100,000 under the competition. Plus it ALWAYS STARTS! LOVE-LOVE IT.
This is my 3rd Porsche and somehow they just keep getting better and better. It's an amazingly civilized car around town. You think it's a pretty quick car until you realize that, most of the time, you're hardly pushing on the accelerator - but when you "floor it', you better be ready to shift because it'll hit the redline before you can blink. The handling borders on absurd. Supple leather seats are very comfortable. There really is no substitute!
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.
I have owned porsches since 1982, great cars, but what has happened to the quality. Buttons now fall off, electrical system fails - try losing your headlights at 65 on a windy road at midnight (I don't believe they switched to Lucas-but.....) and customer service that talks nice and does nothing. I just don't know, it's a blast to drive, but then again, it is a porsche, but then again, it's not the porsche I fell in love with
This car is a ton of fun to drive. I recommend the sport exhaust. Next car will be the turbo. I need to find a track as the speed and acceleration are intoxicating. I'm amazed at how smooth the engine is.
It looks abusive, and probably is, but the crazy drop-clutch axle-hopping launch works, and earns about 0.2 seconds across the board. Shifter is brilliant; light and precise. Sound track is classic Porsche.
Firm, trustworthy pedal, but the distances were effected by surface ripples and grit. Some nose bobbing on bumpy surface, and some skipping over sandy surface. Still excellent despite idiosyncrasies.
Easy to sense tires' limit in the skid pad, but not as receptive to drop-throttle oversteer as I'd like. Still very good. In the slalom, the 911 is brilliant with perfect body control. Excellent steering weight and feedback. Predictable. Intuitive.
