The interior: Fairly dark, with approximately 400,000 buttons. Plenty of space for 2 car seats, the wife (with lots of legroom), and the dog in the back. Even having someone between the car seats wasn't unbearable for short trips. The leather seats were very comfortable (and heated!).

The tech: Bluetooth. That's pretty much it. The infotainment was dated for sure, and I couldn't figure out half of the buttons that were strewn about the cabin. There was no backup cam, which for some reason was a dealbreaker for a lot of people when I went to sell.

Driving: A little rough in the lower gears, and the heavy clutch and stiff shifter took some getting used to. 3rd gear is when the thing really starts to open up. And the thing just flies on the highway. I would pass people in 6th no problem, and hit 100 without realizing it. Visibility isn't great, due to the tiny rear view camera. Overall, I absolutely loved the driving experience though.

Value: It's a Porsche. They're not cheap and if anything goes wrong, it's going to cost you. Luckily, as long as you keep up with the service (always ask for service records on a Porsche), and make sure the transfer case has been addressed (common issue with these), the thing will just run.

Again, overall an excellent daily for anyone with just a little extra cash to spend.
