If you have always dreamed of driving a Porsche 911 for a day or a weekend, this is your chance! Perfect for your special trip with your significant other, friend or alone - you will have a blast.
Please don't let its age fool you. Even though it's 11 years old, it's been well maintained with all service records and still runs strongly. You will love the sound of the engine behind your ears every time you step on the gas!
I am a Porsche fanatic and hope that you will enjoy driving this Porsche as much as I do. Really looking forward to sharing my 911 with you.
My car is generally available in the city of San Francisco during the week, and in the town of Orinda (East Bay) during the weekend.
Please let me know if you have any questions. I will answer promptly except for between 11PM-7AM PST because I need some sleep!

2002 Porsche 911911 Carrera15528
Yong offers the highest level of service you can imagine. He's flexible and willing to do what it takes to make your trip successful. The car is in remarkable condition. It arrived spotless and perfectly maintained and is exactly as advertised - a 911. It was so nice we treated like our own baby the whole trip. I can't recommend this renter highly enough. Thanks Yong!
Yong and his car were great. Communication and coordination with Yong was super fast and easy, and the car itself was perfect for our trip. Everything is in great condition. The car is obviously very well taken care of. Rent from Yong and you'll have a great experience. Would highly recommend him and his car.
Rented the Yong's Porsche 911 for an epic once in a lifetime trip with my brother from San Francisco up the Coast along HWY 1 and through various redwood state parks and national forests in Northern California. Wow! What a drive and what a perfect car to do it in! I'll have memories to last a lifetime. The Porsche was obviously meticulously maintained and drove like a dream. Plenty of power, superb handling, surprisingly good gas milage and not too difficult to drive. And the sound of that engine!! Several problems arose during the trip (a couple minor, one major) through no fault of the car or Yong. However, Yong was exceedingly patient and very reasonable and easy to work with. He really went above and beyond. Great guy. Would definitely rent from again. Thanks for the great experience!
Mr. Kim was very prompt and flexible related to p/u and drop-off. The car was clean, well maintained, well equipped and drove as good as it looked. Mr. Kim was straight forward about the current condition of the car, which was great. It made the whole experience that much more enjoyable. Would definitely rent again!
We rented Yong's Porsche for a Napa Valley anniversary getaway. The car is in amazing condition and was washed and detailed inside when we picked it up. Yong was very accommodating with pick-up and drop-off and dealing with him made this experience a pleasure. I will rent this 911 again whenever we're back in SF. Thanks Yong!
This was my 2nd time renting the Porsche and as always it was a fantastic experience! Overall condition of the car was great and beautiful. Was on time with pick up and drop off, communication was great. Owner Yong is one of the kindest and nicest person on the community, thanks to him i had an amazing weekend like the 1st time renting. will be looking to rent again in the future! Highly recommended.
The Porsche is in fantastic condition - beautiful exterior and interior and drives wonderfully. I rented this for my boyfriend's birthday and he had the time of his life driving his dream car. It was very difficult to say goodbye. And Yong was wonderful. He is so kind and generous to lend out his baby. We'll be renting again!
Yong was awesome. Nicest guy ever, very polite, very accommodating. Car is terrific, in great shape, and very well taken care of - and I was happy to do the same. A special rental for a special occasion. Thanks Yong! Highly recommended and would rent from him again anytime.
Yong was an excellent host. He went far and above what was required to meet me at the airport - excellent service. He is one of the nicest people I have met. The car was in excellent shape and very clean. Just as promised it is very tight and well maintained. Loved the Porsche on what was a very special occasion.
I rented Yong's 911 for a weekend away with the wife. Let me just say what a great car. I've always heard Porsches, specifically the 911, is one of the best cars to drive. It's 100% true. This one is obviously well maintained inside and out, It drives as good as it looks.
Yong was great, very communicative and punctual and made the pickup and return easy for me by meeting me at the airport. The car was a lot of fun, extremely zippy and fun to drive. It doesn't have any modern features (bluetooth, etc), and I would have liked to be able to plug my iPhone into the speaker system. But it really is a great car for the drive. I would definitely rent again.

Was my first car rental with Turo and it was a great experience. The car was fantastic... it looks better in person than in the photos and it was a rip to drive. It was a lot of fun and was better than we'd expected.
Yong had just gotten the car back the night before but still got it washed and cleaned up for us, and he met us where we were staying to drop the car off. You won't be disappointed if you rent this car. Thanks again!
Rented this 911 from Friday to Sunday for my Birthday and let me begin by saying that I had the time of my life, Thank you Yong.
We originally scheduled to meet at Oakland airport but a few days later I happened to have rented a another car because I had family in town, instead of dropping this other car in SF and going all the way back to Oakland Yong was kind enough to accommodate my deviation and actually met me in SF where I dropped off my previous car.
When I first requested the car I admit I did not have high expectations since its only a base carrera and the 996 is not one of the more glorified 911s (first water cooled model).BUT right when I first saw this 996 I was blown away at how much nicer the car was in real life compared to the pictures, Yong had just washed it and waxed and the interior was also impeccable ( I think the rims really make the car standout). Although I could not enjoy the car for its performance capabilities that night (rain was pouring , clubbing and I spent the night at a hotel) I was amazed at how many looks I was getting from people on the streets.
The following days I took the car on HWY 35 during the day (great scenic route) and did some late night driving saturday night around Walnut Creek Tunnel/Grizzly peak area and on my last day I took the car to Mt. Hamilton near San Jose (Very challenging only went half way up before turning around)
Words can't describe the feelings I had driving this car. Driving a Porsche Panamera 4S is what turned me into a car enthusiast a few years back but driving Yong's 996 has turned the 911 into one of my dream cars. The engine is always happy to be rev'd in high RPM and the steering+suspension provide endless amounts of oversteer
1) Download this app called "Ultimate Drive" by BMW it will give you a bunch of scenic and fun places to drive the car
2) DO NOT i repeat DO NOT stay in SF the whole time with the car, she wants to have fun
3) Yong is a great guy, he provided outstanding customer service; I feel as if he wants to share his passions for 911s with others and he wants his car to receive attention since I am guessing he does not drive his 996 anymore so treat his car like it was your prized posession
4) If you have never driven a manual please stay away, if it's been a while since you have driven a manual (like me) then get some practice before renting out this car (specially if you're going to pick the car up in SF) I rented a 5 speed z3 before hand and it helped a lot getting ready for the 911
Again, thank you Yong, over the 48 hours of driving your car I've had an experience of what owning a Porsche would be like and it is awesome, I'll be back for more
P.S: I was at a parking structure on Polk st in SF and this girl in the garage could not stop talking about the 911 haha (of course she thought it was mine, girls...)
We rented Yong's 911 for a special occasion and it was a fantastic experience. The car is in beautiful condition and it's clear that Yong takes excellent care of it. Yong went out of his way to make drop off and pick up super convenient for us, and he was a pleasure to communicate with. Wonderful experience!
