The guys over at the Detroit News are just gushing about the Porsche 911 Carrera S. Yes, This is an amazing machine and what an impression it has left on Scott Burgess. Can’t wait to drive one myself.
The Porsche 911 Carrera S is almost mythical.
Spotting one on the open road in Michigan is like trying to lasso a unicorn.
But they are out there and when you see one bolt past, you have to wonder what it’s like to drive one.
Allow me to explain: It’s better.
The 911 S is a mechanical dream, watch-like precision in a car. There’s a reason German engineering comes with such a glorified reputation and the 911 S proves this at every turn.
When I sat inside the cabin for the first time, I was in awe — it didn’t even matter that I was driving the 2009 model of the 911 S when the 2010 version with a few updates was starting to roll into dealerships. (There have been some additions to the 2010 model year, but most are minor and the 2009 is a good representation.)
