Summary:

I paid for an Audi, but got a Porsche!

Faults:

Sunroof (Targa-roof) and rear hatch leaked water, but cleaning seals helped.

Some electrical problems with extra front-lights and sunroof's motor.

Doors jam easily during winter (due to freezing).

General Comments:

Excellent to drive. Even if it lacks power (for a Porsche), it corners like a Porsche.

Low maintenance and reliable car.

Low spare-part's costs, even when compared to "normal" familycars, not to mention other Porsche's.

Cabin fits easily 2m tall persons (on front). Rear seats only for children at best.

Targa (sunroof) is a must at summer. You can even drive 120km/h (max.limit in Finland) without roof, with no wind in the cabin!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
