Pros: Total control
Cons: Luggage space
Advice: Don't hesitateAs an advid car freak I can honestly say that this car is the ultimate time machine. Having owned over 30 sport cars in the last 10 years this one may make me reconsider my desire to constanly change cars.Its not just the accleration but the total control you feel at every speed.Fast, fun, total let your hair down. If 120k is in your price range their is nothing better at any price .Have fun
Pros: Hard to pick one favorite feature. I love the comfort in the seats, the power under the hood and the awesome styling. But the best thing is the amount of trunk space considering it is a sports car. I can have golf clubs in the back and still hit Publix
Cons: It is a sports car, so it is limited. But they could have made a little bit better cup holders (like that is a big deal considering all you get though).
Advice: What are you waiting for?? If you can afford it.....go get one. Actually....no don't buy it...then mine will be more unique.When I sat down in this vehicle....it just ooozed class and craftmanship. I am tall, 6'2', and I have ample room in this vehicle...even with the top down. Taking it for a test drive....you could feel the power and responsiveness. You have complete control of this car at all times....it is not a pocket rocket that can only go in a straight line. I don't know about you....but I generally tend to make turns while I am driving. The car is great for daily driving as well as long trips....or just beating that little punk next to you off the red light. And the looks you get. I already had a woman pull of next to me asking what kind of car it was and then screamed 'I love it....I love it'. So if you are the type that wants to sit at home and be a wall flower....get a volvo. If you are the type that is the life of the party....get a porsche!
Pros: anything and everything
Cons: having to go inside
Advice: Just do it, you won't be sorry500 words are not required to sum up a test drive of this car... only two: pure joy
Cons: speeding tickets
Advice: The stock tires don't do well in the snowThis is really an all purpose car. It's one of the most practical 2-seaters in that you get both storage under the hood and a trunk that's bigger than the Miata. In addition it handles incredibly well on the track.
Pros: 320hp engine with manual transmition...AWSOME
Cons: intrest rate offered by Porsche Financial...go somewhere else for financing
Advice: Watch your speed. Before you know it you'll be seeing flashing lights in your rearviewI own the C4 Cab and it is a dream. The 3.6-liter 320hp engine pushes this car hard. It's fast, nimble, and breed’s confidence in the driver. Also, the manual gearbox is the smoothest in the Biz, and the clutch is so easy to use. With the top down wind noise is minimal and the stereo is easy to hear even at 75 mph! If you have the money you cannot beat a Porsche. I have had this car for over 6 months and the novelty hasn't worn off. I am as excited to drive it today as the day I drove it off of the dealer lot. Must options are: 18-inch rims, sport exhaust, CD-changer, and upgraded leather. I have the navigation system as well and it's useful, but requires too much attention with a manual trans.
Pros: Overall Balance of the car. Runs like a dream.
Cons: The stereo.
Advice: Upgrade the seats, spend the money and personalize it.This car is more than you can ever expect. Whatever you thought it might be it is more. You MUST upgrade the seats to the premium ultra soft leather, in order to get a true feeling for the car. Also adding the aerokit is a must. Nothing can beat this car OVERALL especially with the top down. Well balanced is the best way to describe the Carerra.
Cons: Maintenance costs
Advice: Negotiate as much as possibleWell what can I say... it's a Porsche... there is no substitute! However, watch out I already got a speeding ticket.
