I bought this car new in 2006. It has this magic to it when I think it does, when I ask it gives. It is sublime to drive this car, my heart races every time I start it up. It feels as though it is tuned specifically for me and it takes the road like a tuna takes to the ocean. I have driven many cars but none are like the 911. This car is extremely reliable and fun. Keep the others I'm a Porsche fan for life, nothing else even compares for me now.

Carrera 4 Hot Wheels

As a previous 911 owner (74 Targa) and regrettably selling in the late '90's, I looked for over six months at late model 911's available on the previous owned market. I came across a posting for a 2006 Carerra 4 with only 9300 miles. The test drive and PPI were without compromise. Since then, the vehicle has been a blast to drive, performs all tasks without hesitation, and I have never second guessed my decision to purchase this used vehicle. My only criticism is the harsh and noisy ride over concrete and rough asphalt. This may be partially due to the tires. If you are considering a used 911 purchase, do your homework on reliability issues, be prepared for high repair costs when they do come up (or purchase a service contract if you don't want to worry), and test drive several vehicles.

I bought my dream car last year - it's a 2006 Porsche Carrera S4 Cabriolet. i bought it from a private owner. It was worth the wait after 30 years of dreaming. The car simply performs. The all wheel drive hugs the road at high speeds, the acceleration is awesome and makes for an unbeleivable ride when in the Sport mode. Sometimes I enjoy watching my lady drive it around the driveway just so I can capture looking at it and listening to it. I love the exhaust tone. Get one as soon as you can. You won't regret it!

If you love to drive you will not go wrong with a Porsche. This is my second one and the difference between my 2002 and the "new" 2006 are dramatic. Mine is all wheel drive and it is just simply the best at cornering and hugging the road. I am now drving my dream car. WOW!

A special spot in my little stable

by from San Francisco CA on May 22, 2009

This is a fast, fun car to drive.. and you'll never have an inferiority complex when you pull up to the A&W. I have a big BMW and an even bigger Brooklands. And i reach for the 4S keys first.

Sharpest car around

After owning a Boxster, it seemed the next step had to be a 911. But a 911 Carrera 4S!! The car handles like a dream and has more speed than I could ever need. Although the ride is a little rough which you would expect, the double takes from people gawking makes the ride seem less uncomfortable. After owning a MB CL500 and constantly having to repair all its' so called luxury items, the simplicity of the 911 and its' feel for the road makes it exceed one's expectations. There really is... NO SUBSTITUTE!
