My experience renting from Krishna was great! All though the car is well loved, it still runs very strong and handles like a dream. It definitely provides the full Porsche experience. It's easy to see why these cars get so much praise. Although it's a bit tricky to use, the Bose sound system is really good. The car also has Bridgestone Potenza sport tires which add to the great handling. Krishna informed me that it has a brand new clutch, which felt really solid. Krishna provided great service and communicated very well. I would definitely rent from him again.
Awesome first rental experience. Krishna is a great communicator and is flexible with last-minute changes to my itinerary. As far as the car goes, one should keep in mind that it probably isn't as smooth as it was when Krishna first purchased the car but that shouldn't deter anyone from the driving experience that a Porsche will provide -- it is neutral through the turns and it is definitely a car that demands to be driven. With the miles allotted, I decided to visit Napa and I gotta say, the vert paired beautifully with the 70 degrees no-cloud weather. Needless to say, I will most likely see Krishna again to drive his other cars :)
Krishnakumar has made the trip very easy. He was also very flexible and accommodating. Quick reply on text and good communication as well. Then there is the car, perfect for the Californian roads. Highly recommended.
This was our second rental from Krishna. Mainly because the car was excellent and his service mad everything so easy. We had a blast with this 911s up and down the PCH to Carmel and Big Sur. The Porsche has the perfect amount of speed and performance for a relaxed weekend on the coast. The car drives wonderfully and Krishna is very easy to communicate with for pick-up and drop off. When we arrived the car was clean and ready without delay. Returning the car was even easier even though we ended our trip 4 hours ahead of schedule. We look forward to our next opportunity to rent it again!
Awesome experience! The host was accommodating, gracious and made the process painless. Great car that was presented clean with a full tank of gas and no major maintenance issues, etc. Would definitely recommend to others!
My experience was absolutely amazing. The car was more than i could have imagined and Krishna was the most understanding, helpful renter I could have asked for. I will most definitely be renting from him again. Don't hesitate to rent his cars - they're priced right and in great condition.
It's near impossible to go wrong in a 911. The car was a blast to drive, took it up to napa and down to Carmel via the PCH. Put around 1k miles on it in a week and loved every minute of it. Car has around 112k on it now. Bluetooth worked well. Krish was easy to work and communicate with. Very responsive. Would definitely rent again! Thank you!!
Sometimes the radio did not work due to trying to sync with the owner's Bluetooth. He gave instructions for how to fix, make sure to get those instructions unless you just enjoy hearing the engine (which is a very nice sound)
Renting the 911 from Krishnakumar was an excellent experience...allowed us to enjoy Carmel and Big Sur to the fullest. Car was in good shape despite its miles; no problems at all. Thank you very much! I'd do it again without hesitation.
Loved it! Krish was so easy to work with! He followed us to the gas station when we picked up the car to top off the tank! We were having trouble using the stereo; However I was able to call him, he answered promptly and resolved the issue for me over the phone! He even arranged for easy drop off when we couldn't meet personally when returning the vehicle. Amazing guy! Would DEFINITELY rent another Porsche from him!
Used the car for three days to drive up the coast. Krishna was very easy to work with to pick the car up and drop it off. The car is definitely an older model, so it has normal rented car wear and tear (the front bumper could probably use a re-spray), but mechanically everything worked great. I would definitely rent again in the future!
Got a lyft from SFO (at Departure level!) with 9 year old in tow, met Krishnakumar, took pics, hopped in car, drove to Santa Cruz and back the next day. Filled car up, dropped it off, got in lyft went on my merry way with my son whose vacation was made all the more fun by a sportscar that we'd otherwise never be in. Great summer memory. First time using turo.com. Highly recommend!
Krishna was very pleasant to deal with, and I loved driving his 911! It is a rare opportunity these days to drive a Porsche with a true 6-speed manual. The car does have slight wear on the exterior and interior, but you can't beat the value of the car. Would absolutely rent from him again!
First off, Krishna was awesome. Great communication, very flexible (I got stuck in traffic on the way to drop the car off). I would highly recommend renting from him. The car was also a ton of fun to drive, and was mechanically in fantastic condition. The only reason I'm giving four stars instead of five is that the car wasn't very clean. The windshield was smeared and dirty, and the interior was very dusty. Again, not a huge deal and didn't take away from the driving experience at all. Just would have liked the car to be cleaner. However, I would absolutely recommend renting from Krishna. Quality vehicle, great owner, easy process. This was my first Turo experience, and it was a great one.
After at first being a little skeptical about the whole Turo process, I am now 100% satisfied with the service we received. Krishna was GREAT! Pickup location was easy to get to, instructions for car were easy. Car exceeded our expectations. Obviously it has some of the older car nicks and sounds, but it drives like new! This truly took our trip to another level. Checked something off of our bucket list. I would highly highly recommend any of Krishna's vehicles. He truly knows how to keep a car. Thank you for this experience! We had a blast!
Best trip I've ever had. Krishna was super helpful and was easy to communicate with and the car was fantastic to drive and never failed to impress! Does show some normal wear and tear, but that is to be expected. Definitely an easy choice any time I'm back in the area. Thank you!
Wonderful host and great communicator. This 997 was exactly what I was hoping for and my first 911 experience! Manual transmissions are a dying breed and it must be experienced in this pure, Naturally Aspirated, Porsche form. Intoxicating sounds and power but still well balanced handling that didn't feel 10 years old even though it has been well loved. Be prepared for double the clutch force than most basic manual transmissions; it slips well though and I had no problems with SF traffic and it was very rewarding and tactile. I suggest to turn the radio off, keep your phone charged with the helpful USB outlet in the console, and listen to the burbling exhaust downshifts along HWY 1 in SPORT mode with your GPS off. Heaven.
I would absolutely recommend renting from Krishnakumar. Nice neighborhood to familiarize yourself with the vehicle before setting off. Clean car, feels great. I wouldn't mind grabbing this car again next time I'm in town.
I rented Krishna's Porsche 911 convertible for my 20 year wedding anniversary. I received a text from Krishna the day before my trip advising me that his Porsche 911 would not be available did to a flat tire, not his fault, but disappointing none the less. He offered me his Porsche Boxster which I accepted. I picked it up and off I went, but I asked Krishna if I could swap the Boxster for the 911 if the tire got fixed in time, he said sure. So, I drove back to San Mateo with my wife enroute to Half Moon Bay. We picked up the 911 and I was stoked, a wonderful experience. Day 2, my wife and I drove the 911 up to San Francisco to see Wicked, the musical. As we pulled into the parking garage I could smell the strong odor of either burning clutch or brakes. It turned out to be brakes. I contacted Krishna and told him I was not comfortable driving in the rain in San Francisco with the brake warning light on. He said he understood and drove his Boxster up to the city so we could swap it out for the 911, a pretty stand up thing to do. Overall had a great time driving not one but two Porsches. Would I rent from Krishna again? Absolutely! 4 stars for the car trouble but 5 stars for Krishna for his efforts.
Renting from Krishna was fantastic as usual. His cars are kept clean and in great running condition -- they are an absolute joy to drive. Krishna is a very attentive and gracious owner. Would definitely rent from him again and recommend the experience to anyone.
First of all the owner was very nice, showed me around the car and how everything works. The car itself is in a good condition, ran smoothly without any problems and is very much fun to drive . Fun experience, I can easily recommend it.
Krishnakumar is ever the gentleman, and is always polite and responsive. This is my second time renting one of his cars, and it's been an extraordinarily positive experience in both cases. His cars are well maintained for their age, his knowledge transfer is top notch, and his flexibility with meeting times is always very much appreciated. Will definitely rent again.
2006 Porsche 911 was a great experience. Krishnakumar is very nice, very responsive and the whole experience has been terrific. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a great fun day in a great car.
Had a great road trip with Krishnakumar’s 911 Cabrio. Drove up Highway 1 to Mendocino and Fort Bragg, over to Lakeport on Highway 20, and then down Highway 29 through Napa Valley. The 911 is effortless at carving long sweeping curves, and these highways had a few hundred curves!
The car had good tires with deep profile. Drove through a storm on the coastal highway, and was happy to learn that the modern 911/997 handles safely, and without sudden oversteer.
Great experience with Krishna. He was very flexible and easy to work with. Great car with new tires. It was a wonderful experience to have a manual 911 Carrera S to drive along the PCH to my friends wedding.
Krishna is responsive, accommodating, and loves his cars. His 911's interior is a bit worn around the edges, but that's not what you rent this 997 cabriolet for. You rent it for the thrill of heel-toeing into a corner as the sounds of Porsche's flat-six fill the redwood canopy above your head. I think I'll be back for more.
Krishnakumar was very responsive and communicative about the car. Took the time to explain all the features and details concerning his 911 S. The car itself is in good shape. 80k on the clock and running very tight and on point. As always, would rent again.
