Bigger faster and stronger than before.

Black on black. This bad mamba jamba can go from 0 to 60 mph in less than four seconds and reach top speeds of 200 mph. This particular model of the Porshe 911 Carrera 4S has one of the classiest, sleekest and most defined body styles found on the road today. It sits low to the ground, enabling the car to hug corners going at speeds as high as 80 mph. This 2009 Carrera has only 6,500 miles on it, is all-wheel-drive and the seats contour to your body like they were made just for you. The “4” stands for all-wheel drive, and the “S” stands for the larger S series engine with 385 horsepower.
Mike Megale, the owner, loves the way the car smells, feels, sounds and, especially, the way it looks. One of the downsides to this flashy vehicle, though, is that the police stare; when they point their radar guns at the car as it drives by, Mike admits that he gets nervous. He bought this Porsche in 2009 because it was his dream car ever since he was a little boy; he thought, “You only live once!” He says everything about this car is “bigger, faster and stronger than anything [he has] ever driven before.”
