Firstly, I don't own a 2011...yet. Had a 2004 CS, and loved it until driving the 2011 CS & Turbo. Have driven 2011's both on street and on the track, and know that I have to own one. Sportscar-like handling is phenomenally improved over an already great product. The 400 lb diet was sorely needed, and the extra power is noticeable.
Interior was nice before, but now is absolutely luxurious and stunning. A bit button-intensive, but really well designed. Seats are more supportive and sporting than prior model. Relocation of seat adjustments is greatly appreciated. The start/stop feature works well and would take getting used to, but is something I've always thought all cars should have (along with the "off" switch). Rear seats are very comfortable now too.
And the exterior, wow, stunning! I disliked the look of the rear end of my '04, but the 2011 is so well sculpted, it's beautiful now...no longer an ugly-duckling. And they've even honed the front end and improved it (was my favorite exterior part of '04). Though, I do sort of miss the titanium pillars and rear window trim of the older model, but I'm over it in a second once nestled inside.
Oh, reliability gets 4-stars based solely on past model's performance and shop time I've logged.
Thank you, Porsche, for another wonderful SUV!
