A Porsche is just a name of an expensive yet ugly car
Clutch, CLUTCH, compressor.
The car is a money pit. Cheap interior, I have spent over 9000 dollars in 4 years of careful driving in maintanance and the clutch is horrible quality for being a high performance car.
I had a Ferrari - that was pure problems and really high maintenance that I could no longer afford. Decided to go for a Porsche 911 Turbo that it seem more of an everyday drive. But ended with something very much like the Ferrari, but uglier looking.
I really would reconsider buying any high end European car if you don't have the money to pay for really unrealiable sports cars. I had owned European sedans my whole life and decided to go for 348 that took me to the bank.
Almost 4 years ago I purchased a 2000 Acura NSX comptech tuned from the CFO of the company I work for. He was from Japan, and told me that my European exotic car love and problems would end with this car. The car had 11,000 miles. It was the only car he ever drove and he wanted a new one with the T-tops. I had owned the NSX for 3 years and 9 months, and it has only seen a service to get oil, currently the car has 48,000 miles and it;s the fastest and most relible car I have ever owned. The car has never had anything REPLACED, and still can do a 0-60 in 4.5 seconds. I have to say it's truly amazing, I would highly recommend it over a Porsche Turbo or older Ferrari. I still think Ferrari had its values such as beauty, but the Acura comes very close and is a worry free exotic beauty.
The 911 Turbo is not what I expected from a German car. Poor quality and maintenance is high for a car that is supposed to be different from Italian troubled exotics. My wife had had a 1998 SLK Mercedes, a very high quality machine, she will never get rid of.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
