What a disappointment this car has been. Two years old and 27K on the clock, been back to Porsche 12 times for every repair you could imagine. A great car when it works, but terribly unreliable. We are stuck with a roadster I wouldn't trust to go much further than the shops. Do yourself a favour and stick with BMW, Merc or Audi.

I'm lucky enough to have been driving Porsches for 10 years and they're all nice cars with beefy engines and are fun to drive. Until this most recent one which i have had since the beginning of March. Nice exterior design but I'm really disappointed in it and am now selling. The gearbox constantly changes into the low gears, the engine noise now resembles a 'normal' saloon car and the lightness of the car makes driving unexciting. The 'improved' PCM music system only takes up to 3,000 tracks until you account for the album covers that take up so much memory you will be hard pushed to load up 1,200. The 2015 version took 5,000. On rainy days water comes into the car due to poor design of the channels along the roof when you open the door which apparently is 'normal'. The list goes on. Such a shame as the brand is known for design, safety and a fun drive but 2 out of 3 is just not good enough.
