A high-performance car for daily driving

Carrera 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 7M)
25 of 25 people found this review helpful

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.

A dream to drive

Don't hesitate. The best car made. I drive it every day, and have literally no complaints. Traded in a 2015 911S for the new 2017. So light and nimble, and love the turbo. The new styling additions are just beautiful. Worth every penny, and such a joy to drive!

"You're Hooked after the 1st test drive"

The 2017 Porsche 911 Carrera is an Amazing vehicle. I've owned several Porsches and by far, the new 911 is the Best! The car is quick, handling is precise, and very comfortable for a 2-dr sport car. There's more room is this vehicle than you expect for a true Sport Car. Firing up the engine, and you'll fall in love with the sound with or without Sport Exhaust. Every time I drive my new 911, I tell myself "It doesn't get better than this". Inside and out this vehicle is a Perfect 10.

Targa 4S 2dr Coupe AWD (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 7M)

Owned a 2014 911 Cabrio for two years. Loved it, but a bit shy on torque/performance and lacked some essential safety equipment. Loved it with top down, but concerning blind spots with top up, particularly difficult to park without rear view camera. Targa reintroduced shortly after my '14 purchase; loved the lines on that car from first glance. Took delivery of a stunning graphite grey/white '17 Targa 4S last week. Amazing how different this new car is. Instant throttle response from any RPM, tracks even better than the '14, and new blind spot warning system coupled with rear view camera has removed any slight issues I had with the '14. A pleasure to drive whether softly cruising or driving hard. A true sport car that is an able touring driver combines to make an overall driving experience unlike any other. A head-turner worth every penny. At 6'4" this car has front room unlike any other I tested (tried them all).

Sublime

Carrera 4 GTS 2dr Coupe AWD (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 7M)
5 of 5 people found this review helpful

Got this car with just under 6,000 miles on it and put 16,000 more miles on it in my first six months of ownership. It is sublime. Driving it like a normal car in normal mode, it feels . . . normal. In part because the automatic PDK transmission revs and shifts gears at fairly low RPMs in normal mode, there is definite, noticeable lag when you punch the accelerator while the car is already in motion. In sport mode, the suspension becomes more taught and it revs a bit higher, and now when you floor the accelerator while the car is already moving, there is only very minimal lag and the car roars to life with little hesitation. Finally, in sport-plus mode, the engine revs significantly higher still and gear shifts with the PDK occur at a much higher RPM. In this mode, when you punch the accelerator while the car is moving, I have detected no lag whatsoever and the car instantaneously leaps forward like a bullet and just keeps accelerating. I got the Carrera 4 GTS because I felt it was the sweet spot in the 911 model range--a great daily driver (and I do drive it almost every single day) that is a joy to take my kids to school in or to use for runs to the grocery store. But with 450 HP and 405 lb-ft of torque, it has as much power as I can ever imagine wanting in a sports car. From a dead stop and using launch control, the car hits 60 mph in 3.2 seconds. And when you put the pedal to the metal, the car instantly transforms from Jekyll into Hyde--suddenly becoming an untamed monster. I have hit 187 mph and the car was still accelerating when I had to let up on the gas because I was running out of track. But the real thrill with this car is not high speeds as much as the phenomenal way it handles, especially on twisty back roads. As anyone who owns this car will testify, the way that it hugs the road while cornering at speed is thrilling. It is almost as if the car is glued to the road. This is particularly the case in warm weather and with high performance summer tires. But with high performance winter tires, the car also is a handling marvel on snowy and icy roads. This past winter, my son and I took it on a three-day road trip in the middle of a protracted winter storm, and the way it handled over four different Washington state mountain passes was mind-boggling. As cars and trucks cautiously ambled along in the right lane to avoid sliding out of control, I spent the three days flying past everyone in the left lane with confidence that only grew with each passing mile about the all-wheel-drive's handling competence in winter conditions with the snow tires. But regardless of weather, this car is just a sheer joy to drive under any conditions. Immediately after purchasing it in Florida, I drove 3,300 miles in three days all the way to Seattle, and I was wide awake and in absolute bliss the entire time. This car delivers so much joy to the driving experience, I am so glad I got the car, cost notwithstanding. I bought it to drive it--not garage it--and I plan to pile on the miles with at least one family member with me as much as possible. Taking good care of it, I hope to be able to drive it for many years to come. -
