"Have owned P cars, only 911 and Cayenne for the past 10 + years. Loved all of them like my first born. 996.1 cab was boring, 996.2 c4s was a thrill, 996 TT was too much to handle. 997.1S was fun and a hoot. 997.2 C2S Cab is a hootX2. one should have a cab as they are a ton more fun. reliability is astounding. Can get exp, but if you are handy, have the tools, then a 20K, 40, 60K maintenance is under $300. The car loves attention, loves to be driven hard, gets more attention that I want (happily married man). Its our small family car, weekend car and dry-clean pick up car and my wife's fun car. 30K trouble free miles. Lets say it is as reliable as my Infiniti. just get oil, gas, tires, pick up cool shades and let the good times roll. In a few years a 991.2 S cab will be in my hands. Every single/happily married man/woman should own these. I usually own them as couple. Have a Cayenne S too."
"This 997 body style is timeless and forward thinking. The evolution of the 911 proves that it is not only a car bearing a pedigree in a historical icon, but also continues to hold it's appeal in modern design aesthetics. This is a surpurb car that turns heads, and even better, delivers an incredible drive and feel for the road."
"Best handling vehicle i've ever had. And I've had many. 5 Porsches, 1 Ferrari, 1 Corvette,
1 Delorean, 1 Austin Healy, 1 Jag. XK150, 2 MB SL500's, 1MB SL550.
I prefer the MB 550 for comfort, ride and value.
It costs the same and you get a convertible to boot. Much better highway car. Quiet and fast. Better gas mileage. About the same performance for 1/4mi and 0-60. A fast luxure car whereas the Porsche is a racecar.
Carrera S is noisy and a rougher ride, but can't beat the handling. Extremely agile."
