- $67,780 - $70,487
- Amazing power
- a small interior

I put an exhuast on mine and it sounds awesome! I also got a tuner chip installed and this made the car incredibly fast. Scary fast. I'm driving at 585 horses - it's crazy!

- Engine, steering feel.
- Soft shocks, marginal brake pads/fluid.
Purchased As Used
I have put 30,000 miles a year on the Turbo cab in all sorts of driving conditions. Cross country, autocross, track day DEs rain or shine. Cross country is perfect combination of comfort and performance no matter what the conditions. Rear engine layout understeer makes autocross frustrating. Torque/power allows car to reach 150mph+ at track, but floaty suspension and inadequate pads/fluid make the car dangerous. Bottom line, women love it......read morehide

- An excellent overall supercar
- Exhaust: needs more sound
I've been fortunate to have had a number of high performance cars over the last 20 years. There is only one car I've purchased three times: The Turbo. It's got all you'll ever need at a price that while steep is only a fraction of its supercar peers. Against the F430 I just sold, it is just as fast but not as nimble; however it costs 1/2 the price and can be driven every day. Against the Lambo Gallardo I owned it's not nearly as much eye-candy, nor does it possess the exhaust note that only a 10-cyclinder mid-engined car can make...so sweet; yet the Gallardo is a show car, almost a kit-car feel and not a daily driver, it's also a finky car (read as Italian) vs the rock solid, vault-like build of the Turbo. Yes there are better cars but few that retain their value as well, are daily driver dependable and still one of the fastest cars on the road; oh and there are few cars that match the stopping power of the Turbo!...read morehide

- Super fast, Great looks amazing handling...
- Naviation difficult to operate
Just got 08 911 turbo coupe. Very impressed with the car. Very fast with crisp corners and great looks. Turbo is lightyears away from the carrera and carrera s. The nissan GT R is just overblown japanesse car that can only be compared with 911 turbo performance. In terms of looks and appeal the GTR looks like cheap modified car from fast and furious. The 911 turbo can fit any role when needed.
The navigation is difficult to manage on the O8. That will change in 09 with the new touch screen. Still it works just fine.
I use it everyday and is still a car that gets valet in the front of any restaurant, club, lounge etc....read morehide

- 20 mpg Avg Fuel Economy, Lightining Fast, Daily Driver, Handles Like A Rabbit, Stops Instantaneously
- Brakes Can Screech Occasionally, Conservative Styling, Quiet Exhaust Note
This is the second Turbo Cab I have owned. Nothing on the road compares to this car. I drive it to work every day unless it rains. It is very reliable and gets great gas mileage to boot (unless you keep the pedal hammered). I went from a stick to the Tiptronic. I really enjoy the Tip. Especially after you learn how to use it aggressively. This car moves and handles better than your first girlfriend. I think the ride in standard mode is fine, as long as the road is not too bad. In Sport mode the ride can be harsh at times. I use the Sport mode on long trips when the car is stuffed to help with what little body roll there is. This car handles incredibly well at speeds over 150. In the Western states, were the speed limits and light traffic allow, you can cruise all day long at 120 to 130. You still will get around 16-17 mpg at these speeds. Great car for long road trips. I would prefer the exhaust note to be a little more aggressive, it is kind of quiet. The power band is incredible. It pulls like a tractor from 1,800 rpms to its redline. The tip is very good at keeping you in the right gear. It will upshift and downshift at the right time. If you want a different gear, you can shift manually from the steering wheel very easily and quickly. The sport seats are infinitely adjustable and comfortable. They hold you like a glove. It does have a few minor squeaks and wind noise, but this is a convertible so I expect it. Topless riding is almost mythical. You can put the top down in a few seconds, while the car is moving, and forget about the rest of the world. What a blast on a cool summer night to go topless and turn you seat heaters on. You will really feel like the king of the road when you drive this fantastic machine....read morehide

German engineering at it's finest. Moderate price tag for its class. Unbelievable speed, handling & style. Moderately comfortable while letting you feel the road.

- Unparalleled performance. Comfortable for everyday drive and unbelievable on the race track
What other car in the world goes 0-60 under 4 second, handles perfectly on the race track, and is so comfortable you can drive it everyday?
