Hands down best car by Jeff on 01/31/2010. Trim: 2008 Porsche 911 Turbo Coupe, Owned 2 years.
Pros: This car is flawless.
Cons: Ignore the idiots rambling on about bluetooth and ipod integration they are mere sheep that have the pockets but not the skill.
Overall review: Drivers car.

A Keeper by 997 C2S owner in Atlanta on 11/26/2008. Trim: 2008 Porsche 911 Carrera S Coupe, Owned 1 year.
Pros: I love the way this car looks and drives. It is not comparable to anything else. It is truly a daily driver super car. You can not find that in another vechile with the same build quality. Plus it is so completely customizable that each car is different from another.
Cons: EVERYTHING is an option and some options are missing. Lack of bluetooth and Ipod intergration (solved by aftermarket) are noticable disapointment in a vechile this expensive. Factory navagation and BOSE sound need improvement. Long and low doors make entry and exit more difficult than a regular vechile, but that is the compromise of a sports car.
Overall review: I gave no 10's because there is always room for improvement, but the 2008 is an outstanding vechile. The 2009 is even more so with a bump in HP and TQ. My 911S is hands down the best car I have ever owned and I still enjoy driving it everyday. This car is the ulitmate daily driver and a killer on the track as well. You can make this car as comfortable as you like or spec it out as a bare bones track monster. The flexibility in building your custom vechile is a great thing, but each option is very expensive and a 997S rings past 100K quickly. If you have the means, do not deny yourself. I have zero regrets.

OMG!! FAST PORSCHE by An MSN Autos Consumer on 11/23/2008. Trim: 2008 Porsche 911 Carrera S Coupe, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: OMG!!! This car is a beast, I traded up from a base Carrera, the power and torque difference is more than numbers.
Overall review: It's a Porsche, the driving experience is way more than I expected. You can cruise around slow if you like but when you jump on it you better make sure the police are not around. This car is so quick and fast the only reason you would go for a Turbo or one of the GT's if you plan to do some track work or you just want one. This car delivers all that you need.

The Ultimate Driving Machine (Sorry BMW ;-)) by Posh Rocket Mama on 09/25/2008. Trim: 2008 Porsche 911 Carrera S Cabriolet, Owned 1 year.
Pros: What's not to love??? I love everything about my car!!
Cons: Not a Thing!
Overall review: Porsche missed the boat when Cadillac coined the phrase: "When you turn your car on does it return the favor?" That is exactly what my car does every time I slide behind the wheel. It is without a doubt the most exciting car I have ever driven and it gets better each time I drive it!!! I love my Porsche!! The feel of the seats and steering wheel…the purr of the sport exhaust…the growl of the engine...the wind blowing through my hair…it doesn’t get much better than that. Who needs Bluetooth or an iPod...this car talks and sings its own way ;-)

Colorado Gentleman's Hot Rod. by German Car Fan, from Colorado on 02/23/2013. Trim: 2008 Porsche 911 Turbo Coupe, Owned 1 year.
Pros: After owning several other fun sports cars over the past 10-15 years (Audi S4, BMW E39 M5, Dinan 335i, E92 M3), this 997.1 TT is clearly the most audacious and enjoyable sports car. This car is a real joy on the road - perfect for passing cars - it takes 1 second for 30-60 mph. The comfort and luxury is top notch. Took a 1900 mile round trip from Denver to Austin and it was a superb comfortable, and entertaining drive.
Cons: I am 6'3" - it can be a bit challenging getting in and out of the car, especially if you have something in 1 hand.
Overall review: An amazing hot rod, in cognito. Imagine 0-60 in 3.4 seconds - in the snow!
