"My 2010 Porsche 911 4S Cabriolet, which I bought used ( it had 52,000 miles) is a fabulous car to drive. It has a 6-speed manual transmission which adds to the fun. I previously had a Boxster S (which I also loved) and traded up. The 911 is a major upgrade in every way — handling, riding, comforts, interior appointments, etc.
When I bought the 911 I wasn’t aware that the performance tires are not recommended at temperatures below 45 degrees F regardless of the conditions. That means you need winter or all-season tires if you’re planning to drive the car in cold weather.
The 911 has a throaty roar, especially when it’s in sport mode. I love the sound it makes. Cornering is a blast as is the responsiveness of the car. Very smooth acceleration. I like to wind it to about 4,500 RPM before shifting. The torque at that engine speed is stunning. However, my driving practice makes the car suck fuel at a pretty high rate — I get anywhere from 13-17 MPG, regardless of whether I’m driving in town or on the road.
I frequently take my 911 out to the country and drive curvy roads. Great fun!
By the way, two golf bags will fit length-wise in the back seat if you first take the drivers out."
