2017 Porsche 911 Carrera 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 7M)


Review

Although pricey, the base 911 is super fast and comfortable and gets 30 mpg on the road. Unless you are a race car driver, 370 HP is already more than needed, but really fun if you need to merge or pass or change lanes at a stoplight.

2017 Porsche 911 Carrera S 2dr Convertible (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 7M)


Review

305 mm tires on the back greatly improve traction over my BMW M4 (2016).
The PDK is superb; better than the M DCT on the M4. No lag or transmission issues at all.
Beautiful interior—very good 18-way cooled seats.
Excellent soft top operation and quality.
Excellent room for tall (6’ 3”) and broad men.
Engine sound and power on the S model are fantastic.
I drove the C4S and didn’t like the “plowing” / handling.
Visibility is great too down and not bad at all with the top up provided the mirrors are properly positioned.
Maintenance is on you—but oil changes are convenient—air filter change is cumbersome and requires rear fender removal.
Driving with the top down is pleasant with great aerodynamics.
Top up driving has some road noise but very livable.
I enjoy driving in the manual shift mode.
The central displays are nice but there is no HUD option as with the BMWs.
Overall — I love the 911S and highly recommend it.

Driving this car is like nothing else in the world. When I pass on to the next life I hope my GTS will be there waiting for me.

2017 Porsche 911 Carrera 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 7M)


Review

Six months into my 2017 Graphite Blue Metallic 911. Got the Sports Chrono Package, Sports Exhaust (a must), and PDK. No sunroof to reduce weight and keep the center of gravity closer to the pavement. I drive the car daily. Very comfortable (if you're not overweight), but not soft on the road. If you want soft, get an old Cadillac. The new turbo motor actually gives better low-end power than previous 911s, allowing one to exit corners swiftly. Little lag in Normal mode, but non-existent in Sports mode or the track-worthy Sports Plus mode. Whistling, swooshing, and rumbly exhaust every time there's a downshift is downright addictive. Steering, perfect. Visibility, perfect. Handling, perfect. My third Porsche. I've owned all the following: Audi R8 V10, Lambo Gallardo, Aston Vanquish, Viper, Lotus Elise, M6, but the new 911 gives me the thrill of a near-supercar on a daily basis. If you can get one, you won't be disappointed.
