Ist sports car outside of American muscle cars. This pocket rocket rocks! Getting in and out is a bit of a struggle for a 71 yr. old but once you are seated, it is very comfortable. This Carrera GTS 4 holds the road like fly paper. Running the Smoky's or the popular Dragon, you are in control all the way. Get lots of complements on the car and Fall runs with the top down is a rush. Granted there is the sticker shock factor but what engineering, the six speed manual is a short smooth throw. 1st gear winds up fast, second is when she starts to bite, third, you are on to warp speed and the rest is velvet. There is a Porsche club (PCA) where you meet some great people and go on drive outs and over nighters as well as social nights. In all it is a great car, if your a gear head or just like pop out the pipe, you will not be disappointed with this car.
2012 Porsche 911 Carrera S 2dr Coupe (3.8L 6cyl 6M)
$70,000 for a 2012 used car seems excessive. The car proved to be pampered by previous owner and a very high quality vehicle. It is purely for entertainment of anyone who likes excessive technology and electronics. There a lots of buttons and gizmos seem unnecessary. Although understated, the vehicle intimidates jerks on the road and gets annoying attention. Having owned at 911SC for many years, this car brings back memories. It isn't driven much in winter months and pampered like most. Engineering is to be admired and fun to drive.
