I purchased a 2006 911 Cab six months ago w/ 10k miles on it. Think I paid too much, but, now I just think who cares?! That's saying a lot since I'm notoriously cheap, the car is simply fun to drive and it has a cool factor like no other so say my kids, which is the only opinion that matters in my book. Sports package, white, chrome wheels, and all the extras that can be crammed in. It's driving nirvana. Can't wait until the next one, although, how do you part with something you've grown to love???

You can easily pay thousands more for a Ferrari but why would you? The Carrera is the finest, real world, daily drive exotic sports car on the planet. As far as looks, realibility, speed, and fun this is the car to own. The down side, is maintenance costs but to be candid this is to be expected of any high end sports car and if this is a problem for you, then you should be driving a Carrera.

Fun, Sexy, fun-to-drive, overpriced

This was my first Porsche. It's fun to drive. Even fun to keep clean. Overpriced for what it is. Exterior fit and finish is very good. Interior quality is mid-stream. Accessories are silly overpriced. So far no mechanical issues. Depreciation is substantial. Do I love my Porsche...yes. I always look forward to being behind the wheel, with the top down and the music on. It's a WOW!

Thinking about a Porsche? Just get it!

Somehow the Carrera S manages to exceed nearly everyone's expectations including mine. I favor performance over luxury and am impressed at how Porsche delivers both in the 997S. If you want luxury, consider getting full leather as the interior is a bit plain without it. I previously owned a Cayman S and did at least a dozen track days in it. My Carrera S came with the sport exhaust that to me, sounded just ok. I added AWE cats and exhaust and wow! It sounds great and the car is surprisingly faster, such that I now clearly enjoy it more than the Cayman S.

All the Porsche you need

I have purchased my first Porsche, a 2006 C4S. I have owned many cars to include a BMW M3. Nothing compares to a 911! Period! A Porsche is a Porsche but, the 911 Carrera is a very special Porsche; which can be told by the amount of people that are still hand making them compared to the other Porsche models. I don't have to consistently say the 911 is an awesome car, go and test drive one yourself and become a believer. Don't worry about Bluetooth, iPod connections, cup holders, etc, etc! This is the epitome of a sportscar, not and SUV! Don't cry about creature features, just enjoy the pleasurable driving experience on a daily basis as Porsche intended you too from the beginning!

More fun than any other P car I've owned

I've had 911s, 996, 996 C4S, and a few Boxster S for for second home drivers. Nothing compares to the 997 CS. It has plenty of speed, won't tire you out like a GT3 or a box S, the handling is superb, in or out of sport mode. Bought this used with 8500 miles on it. Got rid of a 04 C4S, no comparison. Been driving P cars for almost 30 years and this one has me smiling. Drove the Big Sur coast this am with the sun coming up with a big grin.

911 S way to go

I purchased this car used one year ago and I am still going around driving it just for fun on a daily basis. This car is just plain fun to drive. It picks you up, keeps you happy. For a car I cannot think of a better purchase. Ferrari? Got 200K? Lotus? Looks like a Go Cart. Vette? Stiff American muscle car, no sophistication. Sorry, but this car is tops. Expensive but not unreal. I can think of no faults. Sure, it could use a blue tooth and XM Radio options but this is just a classy, amazing automobile. Buy one before life passes you by! Oh, and if you live in a nice climate get the convertible!! Just adds 50% more fun to the drive. Amazing car.

Yes this car is everything it's made out to be, fast, quick, sexy, bold, stunning, sexy, an ego stroker without compare. EVERYONE looks and looks again. But the real rush is not all the exterior fuss but that feeling deep inside that let's you know I made it! This car is one with the driver, four seats, yeah right! lol This car is an extension of your driving capabilities, an expression of your need to find space and create space on the fly. Own a 745 BMW that I simply adore but sometimes, everyday if I could, you just want it to be about "you"...and nothing else. Driving down PCH on a beautiful California night with the top down and my beautiful wife. Well it doesn't get better. Nice!

Porsche comes out #1 again in the J.D Power survey with build quality and my experience is no different. Classic styling never grows old. It makes your heart skip a beat every time. Porsche's adaptive sport seats are the best I've ever owned. The handling & driver feedback is amazing for this car. This isn't a hick muscle car that's only good for driving in a straight line. Take this car into the twisties and you'll see what owning a Porsche is all about. The agility is amazing, and Porsche did a great job of keeping the weight very low in the 3000's unlike inferior German competitors that can only boast a handful of extra hp's and trunk space.

This is an incredible car. It is sensitive to tire pressures, 381 hp w x51 kit. The harder you drive it, the better it drives. i.e. more the confident you will be in it's capabilities. The engine is very flexible and has gobs of power above 4,200 rpm. It has the sport chrono which makes the throttle more sensitive, firms the shocks for more precision driving and opens that melodious Porsche exhaust up. After 5,000 miles, I still get excited driving this car. There truly is no substitute. It is a world beater with 3.8 liter six cylinders. Wow. The engineers have triumphed over the physical issues of a rear engine vehicle.

This is my second 911. The 2006 Carrera S is lightning fast. Press the Sport Crono package button, hit the gas, and what a blast. The difference between by 2001 911 and my 2006 is substantial. The 2006 model offers much more comfort and more acceleration. It is more expensive, but in my opinion, it's worth it.

I have never owned a Porsche until now and wondered afterwards why I waited so long. This car looks, handles, performs like no other car I have driven. The S4 version makes for a wide body car that looks very aggressive (305ZR3519) with steam roller rubber under the rear combined with four wheel drive option gives you tremendous confidence in accelerating hard into corners. It is one of the most fun cars to drive and with the sport exhaust, six speed transmission and sport seats that hug you and allow you to push the car, you feel like your driving a race car. The sport exhaust not only adds to the performance but provides sweetest sounding engine notes from a production exhaust. The car is a great value.

The lease on my Cayenne turbo was ending and I had always wanted a Carrera. This car is beyond even my expectations! It's extremely comfortable, a blast to drive, and handles like perfection! The braking is truly exceptional. When you are driving, you feel like you are in a car that is much more substantial in size. It's ROCK SOLID!

This car is just plain excellent, as I have come to expect from Porsche (this being my 8th one). I bought the Carrera S only because there was no Turbo available at the time, My Turbo should be arriving any time now. The phrase "Porsche, There Is No Substitute" is very fitting for this, and all their cars.

After driving a Boxster S for two years I couldn't wait any longer and went big for a 2006 Carrera S convertible. So far all I can say is WOW! The performance of the car is unmatched with more potential than I will probably ever use. I loved my Boxster S but the power and handling of a 911 S is worth every dollar I spent on it. I did reseach on all the top end sports cars and if your looking to upgrade look no further than the 911. I had plenty of "competition" come up to me in the Boxster...now when I have cars come up fast from behind you can literally see them back off after reading the Carrera S on the back.

The performance and handling are spectacular - effortlessly fast, solid, sure and nimble. On the track at the Porsche Driving Experience, the capabilities of this exceptional machine are revealed to the drivers. Even after a day of on-track training, a few hot laps with the instructors at the wheel show that only a fraction of the 911's abilities will be ever tested on the street by us mere mortals. This car is personal; it fits like a fine leather glove. The controls are simple and intuitive, once programmed for driver preferences.

I traded in my my hard top for a convettible. Believe it or not, the inside is as quiet as the hard top's was. The interior should be more luxurious since the car costs $100,000+. I have a 325W Bose stereo but am not too impressed. It still sounds FLAT when the top is down. Last week I up grade the Amp to 600W. Now the car is awesome. NOTE TO EVERYONE: Remember every Porsche is different from others. For example, one car's crutch feels different from others. From my experience, all 3 Porsches I have owned, everything is perfect except one minor defect. My first one had loose inside door handles. With my second one, the car vibrated hard when the AC was on. Now in my third one, there is a rattling noise from the driver's side door while crusing. My dealer could not repaid any of these issues.

At 53 years of age, I finally took the plunge and bought a new '06 911 Carrera 2 coupe, 6-speed, black on black. My, my, my has it been worth the wait! Can you say handling beyond your wildest dreams? It is fast, but I have driven faster. What sets it apart though is its incredible smoothness and overall mechanical balance. The workmanship is spectacular - I now understand why you see a ton of these still running after 20 years. Although it is hard to argue that any car is worth $75,000, I can at least understand why this car costs that much. It is over-engineered and built to incredible fit and finish standards. It is everything (and more) that I had ever hoped and dreamed that it would be.

This is my third Porsche. I have had hard tops previously, but convertib les are the best. It is pretty quiet compared to the hard top. I got all options. I am not too happy with the Bose high end stereo though. It sounds flat. The exterior needs some changes. LED will be nice. This car is fun to drive. It's a real head turner. For daily use it is OK. It needs more luxury inside for $110,000.

My 2006 C4S Cabriolet is more fun than what should be legal! I've wanted a 911 for as long as I can remember, however, as a tall guy (6'3"), the cockpits on previous versions were too cramped. Porsche finally saw the light for the 997 and the redesigned interior offers more leg room, not to mention, with the optional "full leather" package, a classy appearance commesurate with a car of this caliber (and price!). This car is really FAST and the all-wheel-drive holds turns at speeds you wouldn't believe possible. I've never felt so confident behind the wheel as I do with this car. I've owned high-end Mercedes and BMWs and this car blows them away. The exterior styling gets a big "thumbs up".

The 2006 C4S Cab is the most enjoyable car I have ever owned! Porsche did this one right by raising the headlights and widening the rear fenders. The power of the S model is perfect. I have owned a Turbo model in the past and would never go back as the 911 S is the perferct balance of power and control. Porsche remains my top pick with the new 997 model now out in a convertible!

My 911 Carrera 4S is my first Porsche and I am awed by the experience. It handles and performs better than anything I ever owned (BMW 750, Jaguar XJRs, Mercedes-Benz 500 etc.) Everything you read about all the improvements made to this model can't come close to the experience of actually driving it. I agree with one other review, If you drive it ...you'll buy it. That's what happened to me!

My 2006 Porsche 911 Carrera S Convertible is silver with the natural brown leather (baseball glove) interior. It is beautiful. I have not had any issues with it, other than my dealership. It sounds good and moves great. The best feature is the PASM & PSM, which make this 911 a comfortable daily driver. This feature alone antiquates pre-2005 models. The S package for $10,000 makes the needed difference. Get the S and get the full leather option as well, for $4800, the rich leather smell and look are awesome. My garage smells like leather and the engine every morning. This car's total price came to $107,000, which is more than I expected but once you are spending $91,500 what's the difference, add the ubgrades and make it a great luxury car. It has a quiet convertible top. This car sounds awesome in a tunnel! There is no wind with the screen and windows up. It has a good navigation system, too.

Having owned 17 cars in my lifetime with most of them being sportscars this is my second Porsche 911 and I have finally found a car that I will purchase for the rest of my life. It is very predictable, even when pushed to the limit, it is fun to drive, and the sound of the engine is pure pleasure. But the best thing of all is that it can be used as a daily driver unlike many exotics. Why only use your sports car on the weekends? If there is anything to critizise, it would be minor build quality issues, but all warranty related issues are graciously handled by the dealership.

This is the fourth Porsche I have owned and I traded a 2002 Turbo for my new C4S. The handling characteristics are superior along with the ride. There is a sports suspension and exhaust setting that sweetens the tones of the engine even more. The body, which includes a very wide rear held up by 19" wheels looks like it was sculpted by an artist. The sports chrono package, which includes a dash mounted stop watch demonstrates Porsche's ability to evolve without forgetng its roots. The classic "rounded" headlights are back. If you go and drive one, you will buy it.

I am the proud owner of a 2006, 2006 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe! The 997 is AWESOME. It has great brakes, engine, suspension, interior design, and yes…that sexy body style with an attitude! I love driving the 997; it’s superb in response, handling, and breaking. I feel like a combat fighter pilot on a mission. Talk about stress therapy, drive a 997 and feel invigorated every time you take the perfect apex. Driving the 997 will make you a believer of the slogan, “Porsche there is no substitute."

This is the car I have been wanting for years and I am not dissapointed. This 2006 911 is rapidly becoming my daily driver. The more I drive it the more I appreciate the quality and the experience it provides as well as being very user friendly for the daily errands etc....but when you need to get on it hold on because it can hang with the best. This is my first Porsche, but it won't be my last. Thumbs up to Porsche for the ultimate vehicle.

My 2006 Carrera Canvertible performs well and is very fun to drive. I love the Tiptronic shifting capabilities which makes the car more fun to drive while not making my commute troublesome. Its suspension is a bit bouncey on the highway as expected for the sportiness. it is fast enough for most anyone and fun enough for me. I have had this car for two days and love it. The lines of the new body style are hot with 911 sportiness shining through.
