2009 Porsche 911 Carrera S 2dr Convertible (3.8L 6cyl 6M)


Just bought a new 09 911S cab. Had an 08 911S cab but traded it on an M3 cab at the end of 08. Since had an 09 Jag xk cab and an 09 Jag xkr cab (ok, call me crazy with all these cars). But getting back in this 911S is like coming home. First thing I did was take a cloverleaf onto a highway at 70 mph without leaning and quickly realized what I had been missing. Jag xkr has more curb appeal, but this is just the perfect car, especially with a six speed. Car is much quicker than my 08...clear improvements to the 997 and 1/2. My wife doesn't believe that I will keep this car for a long while given my history, but I will win this bet. I am home.

Best Features

Performance, incredible bose system (better than premium bmw or jag systems), performance, looks, performance, best in class gas mileage by far

Worst Features

As i compare to M3, XK and XKR...it is hard to find improvements. others are more roomy, or more luxurious, but this is the complete package
